Gallup released a poll this week of 87,000 American adults and found that 49% who identify themselves as religious tend to support Republicans while 52% of the nonreligious tend to support the Democrats. This gap holds consistent across ethnic groups except for African Americans who overwhelmingly support Democrats irrespective of being religious or nonreligious. Pollster… Continue reading Religious lean Republican, nonreligious lean Democrat in U.S.
Most of us in advanced societies make it a point to avoid dining with people who we know can bring up uncomfortable subjects at a meal. We have in our minds what constitutes proper etiquette for meals where we are hosting guests or are guests ourselves, such as not insulting the host, not insulting the… Continue reading Rude dude?: dinner conversations with Jesus
I grew up in a church where the accepted thinking was that if you really wanted to be important in God's kingdom (i.e. religious church circles), you had to be called to preach and either sit under a prominent pastor and/or attend seminary to get a string of letters after your name, like M.Div. However,… Continue reading God specializes in using nobodies

As a person who enjoys exercising regularly, I avoid overeating (gluttony) and keep my consumption of junk food to a minimum. But there aren't many foods I turn down. I eat red meat, white meat, seafood, fruits, vegetables, whole grains, "bad" carbs, and, on occasion, I drink wine.
