The sacrament of Confession, and child abuse

I read this article today, and I thought I’d share my thoughts with you all. At first I was puzzled on what my take should be. I should know that, shouldn’t I? I’ve railed against the Catholic Church many times on this subject, and certainly, in the younger days of this blog, I’d be throwing… Continue reading The sacrament of Confession, and child abuse

Donald Trump

Well, I waited until the Electoral College had voted, and they have, so here we are, unfortunately. But before we get into what should have happened on November 8 or December 19, I want to tell you guys a story. In 2013, I was working for a state psychological association and I maintained two Facebook… Continue reading Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton and Hatshepsut

It probably won’t surprise anyone reading this that one of my favorite heroes of all time is Hatshepsut. Plenty has been said and written about Hatshepsut, the woman pharaoh of the 18th Dynasty who went from princess to queen to regent to king.

I suppose… Continue reading The week in review

Kim Davis

Actually, I wasn’t seeing the need to clutter the Internet with my view, but she finally made the mistake of reminding me of my high-school self, which is probably why I can’t stand her.

Church-state separation in Wakulla County, Florida

I feel like, just as other bloggers do, it is my duty to bring things to the attention of my readers when those things are slightly askew. Not much goes on in this rural corner of north Florida, but a couple of things have been bugging me since the beginning of the year. This, for… Continue reading Church-state separation in Wakulla County, Florida
