Church for Saints and Sinners

I really enjoyed an interview a few weeks ago with Nadia Bolz-Weber.  She is a Lutheran Pastor who founded The House of All Saints and Sinners, and she prides herself on literally welcoming the outcasts to her church.  These people include junkies, drag queens, and transgender.  Here are some excerpts from the interview.  How is she […]

Sanders Appeals to Conservatives

Bernie Sanders is a socialist.  Yup, I said it.  Apparently Karl Marx thought that Socialism leads to Communism (as is the USSR – Union of Soviet Socialist Republic)  or Naziism, which was headed the the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.  But the opposite seems to be true.  Both Naziism and the Soviet Union have died, although certainly […]

Why They Don’t Need Heavenly Mother

Mormon Pageant Season

This year my family has tried to attend several pageants (Manti Pageant, Hill Cumorah Pageant) but schedules haven’t worked out.  Last night, we attended the Clarkston Pageant.  Never heard of it?  Neither had my wife. Clarkston is definitely off the beaten path.  It is about 30 minutes northwest of Logan, Utah, just 10 miles or so […]

Greg Kearney on Masonic Origins on LDS Endowment

In one of John Dehlin’s first podcasts (September 14, 2005), he interviewed Greg Kearney, a member of FAIR (Foundation of Apologetic Information and Research, a pro-Mormon think tank), and a several generation Mormon  and master mason.  Greg attended BYU, and is the member of a Farmington, Maine ward that has been around longer than any […]
