Five Things Every Christian Should Do on Easter

Let’s just get something straight: Easter is not for Christians. And all God's people gasped in unified protestation…"SAY WHAT???  So who exactly is Easter for then, pray tell?" Well…that guy of course.  Easter is for that dirty guy that reeks of alcohol who is passed out under the 9th street bridge.  Easter is for that [...]

Sunday Christianity

‘Sunday’ Christianity is, perhaps, one of the most dangerous kinds of religion (at least for it’s followers).
