Case for Life with Aaron Brake - Part 1

February 13th, 2019

In this special episode, friend of the show Aaron Brake, presents Part 1 in a series dealing with abortion and the right to life. For those who know me, you know that this is an issue that I am very passionate about but also passionate about presenting a cogent, rational, scientific case for the anti-abortion/pro-life position. Aaron does a truly excellent drop in this series in presenting a robust case for the right to life of the fetus.

Was Jesus Polyamorous?

November 18th, 2018

In this episode I respond to this video by Brian at queertheology.com which claims that Jesus is polyamorous. While plenty of people will respond to the heresy and blasphemy of the claim, I wanted to go through some of the reasons why his statements and attempts to do "queer theology" are... well... queer (sic. strange). He make numerous hermeneutical and theological problems in his attempt to give a religious cover for his sin.
