He decided to hit back at them in a novel way that has backfired in not only his own face but those of the fanboys who decided to act as his personal army. Today, let me show you what happens when someone’s personal army turns out to be the Persians, not the Spartans.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Hi and welcome back! Long ago, we established that Christian hypocrites in elected positions behaving badly no longer qualified as weird enough to remark upon, right?

Reading Time: 20 minutes HI and welcome back! Last post, I put up the pre-movie chatter post. Today, let’s have the full review! I loved it.

This first incident involves a terrible Christian who trotted out a miserable little fantasy he called a parable. Today, I’ll show you a rundown of what parables are, why Christians’ parables in general suck, and how one of those Christians helped inspire me to begin blogging.
