“Could my 7-year-old already know he is gay?” That was the title of a worried mom’s Reddit post about a week ago. Her young son hadn’t used the word “gay,” but he had indicated an interest in other boys, and yet he seemed afraid to talk about it. The mom wanted to know how best … Read more
One of the silliest, most fun things I ever wrote is back online by popular demand…and this time, it’s got a full-length special commentary to go with it!
Is it wrong to ask “Did God really say that?” about the things we heard growing up in church? Some people say it’s “the Devil’s oldest trick.” But watch out—because this story has a plot twist.

I posted this just now on Facebook and wanted to share it here: I’ve spent the morning being devastated and speechless once again at the terror that one human being can inflict on so many others. As someone who’s lost a family member to gun violence, news like this always feels personal. But an attack … Read more
