Back in May, when I wrote about Ms. Eddy and alcohol, I came across a parable that was largely overlooked by my Sunday School teachers, it comes from Luke 5:36-39 and it talks about wine. "And he spake also a parable unto them; No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if … Continue reading what their itching ears want to hear – new wine-old bottles, Mary Baker Eddy & Luke 5:36-39

Propaganda & the image of Mary Baker Eddy I was required to take an art history class for my major in college, it didn't really pertain to my major, but it fell into some outdated requirements so I spent 50 minutes every morning for ten weeks in a dimly-lit, too-warm room, being lectured at (basically … Continue reading Portraits of Our Beloved Leader
The other day the Awkward Moments Children's Bible Facebook page shared a collection of horrifying "Christian Music" videos gathered from YouTube. I followed some of the links to their logical conclusions, and came across "I Just Want To (Be A Sheep)" The sheep theme reminded me of the guest post by the (obviously a pseudonym) … Continue reading Wanna be a Sheep

I don't drink wine, beer, or cocktails. I don't enjoy vodka, tequila, or spirits. I've had a few sips … Continue reading look at all my trials & tribulations, sinking in a gentle pool of wine

After last week’s “toe dip” into Scientology, I thought I’d check out one of the other religions often mistaken for Scientology – Christian Science. The church is one of several on the decline in America’s religious landscape. However, you might be surprised to learn that some pretty well known people were raised in the Christian Science faith: Doris Day, Robin Williams, Marilyn Monroe, Henry Fonda, Andy Rooney, Bette Davis, Gene Autrey, Carol Channing, Ginger Rogers, Val Kilmer, Joan Crawford, Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando, and on and on.
