Beyoncé’s Formation Tour stop last night was plagued with rain and lightning, which at one point caused the show to halt and the venue to be temporarily evacuated (Beyoncé eventually made her way back onstage to conclude her set). This is notable because the show took place in none other than the Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina—a state that has become a hotbed of controversy and ill will in the wake of Governor Pat McCrory passing the effectively anti-trans H2 “bathroom bill.” Was the storm a coincidence or pointed act of God?
Last night, failed mail-order meat salesman Donald Trump decided that, tonight, he’d like to sleep in his own bed. Spotting an opportunity to strike, our great Lord above—the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the original mail-order meat salesman in a way, if you think about it—decided to pull some pranks. And now, Trump is fucked.
Rising inequality. Irreversible climate change. A possible third Grown Ups movie. These are just a few of the challenges facing America in the 21st Century.

There's nothing God hates more than a liar, and that's exactly what Alex Malarkey—protagonist and co-author of The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven—has just copped to being. In an open letter posted on a Christian website Tuesday, the alleged paradise tourist says "I did not die. I did not go to Heaven." Wow, we have a little sinner on our hands.
With our imperfect knowledge and limited faculties constrained, as they are, by the hedges of time and space, we cannot "know," in the narrow, popularly-used sense of the word, which of the Ten Commandments Blake Lively violated that prompted God to turn her birthday into a bee hell, but it was probably 9.
Which ancient, neurotic pervert got more applause at the Oscars on Sunday night—Woody Allen or God?
Right-wing fat guy Erick Erickson fancies himself a theologian, and he whined about being bloodied by "ignorant" lefties after tweeting this. Actually, Erick, your "less than human" drivel is a self-serving anti-evangelical innovation that's at odds with N.T. Wright's position on Christian mortalism. Don't front.
