Not Coming To A Kiss Cam Near You

Thu, 13 Jun 2013 11:37:07 -0400

I live my day to day life in a home, church and workplace where my status as a woman married to a woman is taken for granted. So it's not that we wanted to be on camera at a baseball game a couple of years ago, but it bothered me that we wouldn't even be considered a possibly romantic couple, simply because we are both women.

Tim Tebow To Patriots Is As Strange A Move As It Sounds

Tue, 11 Jun 2013 13:36:41 -0400

The strange and rare reality of Tebow -- whom the New York Jets quite literally could not give away -- is that the media love to cover him, to criticize him, but perhaps most importantly, to try to make sense of him.

What Does 'Religion' Mean?

Sat, 08 Jun 2013 05:54:15 -0400

Christians used to be the prime authority on these matters in American society. Now the media and Internet do not have as much of a stake in maintaining traditional boundaries and have instead leveled the playing field completely. Religion can mean everything and anything.

Racist Redskin: Resolving Anglo Ignorance About Naming Natives

Christian Masculinity, The WWF And Unbelonging

Sat, 11 May 2013 08:28:56 -0400

"Imagine 10,000 men, fathers, sons, brothers and Christ-followers, coming together to worship God and learn more about the life of true adventure He intends for us as men." That's an actual description of one such event. If you're like me, you're very, very nervous to read any further.

Jason Collins: The Christian War?

Thu, 09 May 2013 15:23:18 -0400

There may be different ideas of who can claim to be speaking as a Christian, but one of the things that has to be at the center of all definitions is that we are called to love the world as God so loved the world. Jason deserves better than he has gotten from a lot of so called Christians.

Letting God Set The Pace

Thu, 09 May 2013 14:19:08 -0400

Olympic Stadium, London, August 4, 2012. Minutes before the race of my life, the finals of the men's 10,000 meters. I wasn't running. I was a spectator. Below, taking their places, were two runners I'd spent years coaching. I couldn't help but marvel at the peace I felt inside.

Wed, 08 May 2013 11:09:56 -0400

Let's face it: None of the members of the "Christian minority" are committing suicide for fear of being outed, bullied or rejected by society. They can walk down the street and embrace their partners without fear of being attacked. They are allowed to marry the people they love.

Jason Collins And The Power Of 'I Am'

Mon, 06 May 2013 17:58:55 -0400

If we Christians can't show more love and willingness to listen, it won't change one person from gay to straight, but it will turn a lot of people against Christianity.

The Jewish Obsession With Jewish Baseball Players

Fri, 03 May 2013 14:50:01 -0400

The infatuation that Jews have with Jewish baseball players has led to books dedicated to the topic as well as entire sets of baseball trading cards.

Jason Collins, Bible Verses And The Truth About God's Word

Wed, 01 May 2013 11:03:50 -0400

Much has been written and said about Jason Collins' historic announcement, but it seems to me we have not yet reached the deepest implications. As a sympathetic outsider to religion, I'd like to try.
