I do my best to respond to some common questions about abortion. Will making abortion illegal actually reduce abortions? Even if abortion is wrong, don’t you have to be a Christian to understand why it’s wrong, and is it right to impose a Christian view of morality on others? Do pro-life people only care aboutContinue reading “Episode 37: Answering Questions about Abortion”
The Supreme Court agreeing to hear Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is a bigger deal than you think.
Can God make a rock that God can’t move? I used to think it was a stupid question. But after thinking about it more, I realized the answer tells us something very important about God.
I’m cautiously optimistic about Carson Wentz, but I’ve never loved him. Chris Ballard has taken way too much heat this offseason, and has proven once again that his patience has led to the Colts being in the best possible position. What’s not to like about Tim Tebow to the Jags? Aaron Rodgers needs to stickContinue reading “Episode 34: Colts’ Offseason, Tim Tebow, and Aaron Rodgers”
Mike Tomlin is a great coach. But if a whole unit gets in his doghouse, he might make a bad decision, and that bad decision might cost him the game.
In this episode, I respond to a viral video made by Skye Jethani and Phil Vischer, arguing that Pro-life Christians should not see Roe v. Wade as relevant in their voting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvWD7ykNjCc Summary: 1. No, Christians are not turning a blind eye to “un-Christian policies” because of Roe v. Wade. 2. Of course Republican presidentsContinue reading “Episode 32: Yes, Roe v. Wade Should be a Voting Issue for Christians”
Is Trump bad for the GOP? Are evangelical Christians moving to the left? When we vote, are we making a binary choice or expressing our ideals?

My friend Matt and I take a few Facebook discussions to real life—well, podcast life, which is a good bit closer to real life than Facebook! We discuss some of our agreements and disagreements about “Defund the Police,” BLM, Aunt Jemima, the “Progressive Elites,” cancel culture, and more.
There’s enormous pressure on corporations, universities, and public figures to release vague statements aligning themselves with the Black Lives Matter movement or condemning racism, but in such a milieu, these statements become more about proving oneself than about advancing meaningful ideas. As an example, I discuss a recent petition for my Alma Mater, Hillsdale College,Continue reading “Episode 28.7: Shibboleth”
A lot of statues across America are coming down right now. I discuss the obvious problem with the “erasing history” argument, but explain why I think removing statues and monuments is nevertheless a bad idea.
I discuss some of my revised thoughts on the killings of Eric Garner, Tamir Rice, Freddie Gray, and others. This is the fifth and probably the most difficult mini-episode in this series.
It turns out the BLM movement stands for a lot more than the fact that black lives matter, and I can’t get behind all of it.
I’ve seen a lot of people defending, excusing, or refusing to condemn violence, destruction of property, and theft. Here’s why that’s a bad thing. Part 3 in my miniseries on race, police violence, the BLM movement, and more.
I discuss the killing of George Floyd, the 2016 killing of Daniel Shaver, and the instances of non-lethal police brutality we’ve seen in the last few weeks, arguing that there seem to be systemic problems with how police are trained in America, and the issues are not just racism, even if they disproportionately affect blackContinue reading “Episode 28.2: Problems with Policing in America”
The first in a series of several episodes on a lot of different things going on in our country today. Among other things, I discuss Phil Vischer’s video on systemic racism, which you can find here: https://youtu.be/AGUwcs9qJXY

I ask Andrew Koperski, a Dolphins fan, what he thinks of the success Ryan Tannehill has had since being traded from the Dolphins to the Titans. Is he as good as he looked this year? And what will this mean for the futures of the Titans and Dolphins?
Lamar Jackson is the clear MVP of 2019, but is he a long-term face of the Ravens franchise?

Chris joins me for the second time to discuss why he’s excited about Kanye West’s latest album, which is full of Christian themes and topics. Chris discusses this album along with some of Ye’s older music, and talks about how his recent conversion seems to be the culmination of a long process of spiritual searching.
This podcast is loosely about politics, football, faith, and theology. I started it because I enjoy telling people my opinions on all of the above areas, but also because I enjoy a good discussion. For that reason, this podcast will have episodes where it’s just me talking and spouting my crazy opinions, as well asContinue reading “ABOUT”
