An unlikely affair at the intersection of pop culture and philosophy

Thank you, Twitter and KimKierkegaardashian, for helping me laugh this morning:




In which I sit with a man named … wait for it …

I’m at a meet-up of home-school families in Austin, Texas.

A really interesting fellow sits down beside me at the Shake Shack (amazing burgers).

It just so happens his last name is Driscoll.

Unlike another Driscoll frequently mentioned on this blog, my dinner companion was kind and genuine.

No, I didn’t bring up this blog and all the rest.

We found Christ’s Home Office!


In Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, in a little town called Paradise, we saw the sign for Christ’s Home Office. Yep, Christ’s Home Office is in Paradise, which one can drive through on paved roads. I guess Jesus finds something appealing about the Amish. And cows. And sheep. That makes sense: Lancaster County smells like being away in a manger.

The funny church sign I had to photograph

The slogan for this First United Pentecostal Church cracks me up.

Is that slogan an affirmation or a warning?

Certainly the “Hard To Forget” was well-intentioned.

But consider the possible meanings, as found on the “What We Believe” page of the United Pentecostal Church International website.

“Full salvation,” the website says, includes “the baptism of the Holy Ghost with the initial sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives the utterance.”

Furthermore, “The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today.”

Other tongues. Supernatural gifts. Any meeting could indeed be “Hard To Forget”!





‘The dirty, rotten, filthy, stinking rich’

“The rich are a class of clones, an elite cabal of likeminded individuals, an assembly bonded in groupthink, a gaggle of Republican gangsters. Therefore, George Soros isn’t rich.” Read the rest here.
