Conversion Story Chapter I: Childhood

When I started this blog, I posted that I wanted to share the story of how I became a Christian.
It’s been some time now — several months — since I said I would tell the tale, and now the time has come to begin it.

My single mother developed a strong left-wing belief system when I was about seven. I had previously been exposed to a range of religions, mostly Hindu-based, in smatterings since early childhood, but I had been too young to understand that they were all different from one another.

Catholic blogger is likely much more successful than he knows

Middle of the night close collaboration for Christ

Like the grassroots instigators of John the Baptist and Jesus, I wait in my digital desert contemplating the perfect lifestyle demanded by God so that when the time comes, I will be ready to carry it out with ardent zeal.  Until then, my blog is my camel’s hair cassock, my facebook account is my feast of locusts and my 140 character limit tweets are my wild honey.

Editor’s note: People tend to forget that Jesus personally reached only an infinitesimal portion of the earth’s population during his short, earthly existence … never traveling very far, and never writing more than a few letters in the sand. Yet Jesus saved countless generations.

Ann Barnhardt is a brilliant, ultra-conservative, Catholic “firecracker”

by Doug Lawrence

A friend sent me a link to Ann Barnhardt’s website, and I’m still in awe. This brilliant Catholic (convert) woman knows from where she is speaking, on a host of very timely and relevant subjects, and she isn’t afraid to step up and say it, loud and clear!

Here’s an example (not necessarily the best one):

Q: Ann, What do you think of the Marines who peed on the dead Taliban?

A: I have little sympathy for men who live their lives wiping their anuses with their bare hands after bowel movements, and who view as the pinnacle of human pleasure inserting their genitals and depositing their semen into the feces-laden rectums of boys and other men, who suddenly get squeamish about dead bodies being sprinkled with a bit of urine – which is sterile by the way. Those dead Taliban were probably the cleanest they had ever been in their adult lives after being showered with the righteous tinkles of those Marines. Ooh-rah. That is all. Carry on.
