I’m clearly not up to speed on this million biker vs million muslim march thing that just happened. Correct me if I’m wrong from my Facebook education on this, but to my understanding, there was to be a million muslim march on Washington which was planned and they had a permit for and then a million bikers were supposed to go down there to stop it from happening even though they didn’t have a permit to have any kind of organized event?

Twelve years ago today I woke up, still ‘intoxicated’ from the night before, to my mother coming into my room saying, “Wake up, we’re under attack.” I remember lifting my head to the window and pushing the curtain aside to see what was going on outside.

Matt Baeher is a Missional Team Leader for Cru, which is the name of Campus Crusade for Christ International in the U.S. Despite his heavy religious roots and my intentional lack thereof, we still enjoy a good debate and agree more often than not on many subjects. Matt is one of the smartest people I know which is why it boggles the mind how involved with religion he is but alas, he is, and I respect him.
During the 2012 Presidential election, one of the many topics debated by those not directly involved with the election was if pastors should preach politics from the pulpit. With regard to this discussion, Matt posted the following on my wall: Continue reading “Should Pastors Preach From The Pulpit? A Response To A Video My Friend Matt Baeher Shared With Me.”
Holy shit! It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on here. Mostly because my life has been hectic as all hell but I should probably take some time out to update this thing. Aaaand that’s all for now!
Fuck it. Tonight I’m gonna rock the fuck out in honor of my friend Steve. He should be here with us, celebrating metal. I’ll drink one for him tonight.
