Broccoli Is My Personal Jihad

It’s entertaining to poke fun at our religious freak friends. But now it’s time for a little positivity in the religious arena. This put a smile on my face and my hope is that it will do the same for you :) One Nation, an American Muslim community website, held a contest called One Nation, [...]

Next Level Church–Give Us A Shot!

Over the years many churches, like many other businesses, have faced the same problem. How do you market your product and increase your customer base. To be honest this is where churches never cease to amaze me. In the past I’ve seen Christian martial arts exhibitions, catchy billboards, and other assorted gimmicks. But pastor Robbie [...]

What Would Jesus Smoke?

Back in the 1990s many US Christians adopted the phrase “What would Jesus do?” (often abbreviated WWJD) to guide them in their daily lives. Since then the phrase has evolved in many spin-offs like “What would Jesus Drive?” and “Where would Jesus shop?” The list goes on and on. Recently, legislators in Illinois have been [...]

Rest In Peace My Faithful Fowl

It saddens me to announce that Tom, the beloved fowl of faith, has passed away. Tom was a regular member of the Lambs United Methodist Church in Wales Township Michigan. People remember Tom for his warm heart and selfless personality. He regularly spent his Sunday afternoons at the church greeting visitors and attending service. Yes, [...]

House Of Onesiphorus Reaches Out

Now here’s a refreshing religious story for a change. The Rev. James Snyder, pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, has a common-sense approach to combating abortion. Instead of using scare tactics and condemnation, Rev Snyder has resorted to using his mind and his heart. Yea I just saw that pig fly by too! Pastor [...]

Nick Vujicic–A Miracle Of God?

Ah now this is a story that has DANGER written all over it. I can run with this story in a dozen different directions, most of which will get me hate mail :) But we are professional amateurs here so let us begin. Ok, what do you call a person with no arms and no [...]

Nun Arranges Booty-Call For Dying Man

Imagine this: You’re 22-years-old and suffering from a genetic, degenerative disease known as Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy (DMD). Survival beyond the early 30s is rare and your condition worsens with every day. The muscle tissue in your body is slowly wasting away and you are becoming weaker. It’s a truly devastating disease in which we have [...]

Little Mosque On The Prairie

Now this would have to be one of the more unique sitcoms that I have seen in quite some time. Little Mosque is a comedic look at a small Muslim community living amongst the 'white-bread' locals of a little prairie town. As to be expected, both groups are somewhat weary of the other and hilarity [...]

Muslims “Pissed” Over Bubbly Incident

Recently the NSW Art Gallery in Australia awarded the "NSW Young Australian of the Year" award to Iktimal Hage-Ali, an attractive young Muslim leader. Hage-Ali is part of Prime Minister John Howard’s Muslim Reference Group and serves as a Muslim voice for the community. She fights for Muslim’s rights and even voiced anger at attempts [...]

Muhammad Yunus On The Daily Show

In case you’ve been living under a rock, like I have, here’s a clip of Muhammad Yunus on the Daily Show. Muhammad is a Muslim born in Bangladesh who has recently won the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize for founding the Grameen Bank and it’s concept of microcredit. Microcredit extends small loans to poor people who [...]
