Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters,since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. – Colossians 3:23-24, NIV On one level, this is a damning critique of critiquing culture • Read More »

Four guys were hanging around a coffee shop on a Saturday morning in 2006, solving all the world’s problems in just a few hours. We’d known each other from college, and all of us shared a passion for technology, Christ, our families, and our country. Oh, and Salma Hayek. Her too. We decided to start • Read More »

The Environmental Protection Agency has rolled out extensive new regulations to stop the spread of the free press in order to stop it before it becomes a danger to the Washington, D.C. ecosphere. “We need to look at the lifecycle of the press corps in terms of how it interacts with the other parts of the • Read More »

Another “Mohammed Cartoon Festival” is in the works, this time in Phoenix, Arizona. Unlike the last one, which was held on the property belonging to a Texas educational institute and therefore “gun-free,” (funny how the jihadists didn’t get that message…), the organizers of this festival are encouraging participants to come armed. Jon Ritzheimer is the organizer of Friday’s • Read More »

I wholeheartedly endorse everything Frank J. Fleming talks about in this article, 5 Rules for Victory in the Culture War. I watched “Christian culture go from something that was *almost* accepted by the mainstream (The Jesus Freak movement) into something that is openly derided and mocked by the trendsetters and culture mavens of our society.

Not to rain on your free-speech parade, but…

Just about a year ago, the Nigerian Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped, raped and sold into slavery an entire school of 12-15 year old girls, due in large part to their Christian faith. The reaction from the Obama administration was swift and self-righteous: It immediately asked millions of Twitter users to express their outrage • Read More »

Mrs ExKev is watching a special on Fox about how radicals like Ward Churchill and Bill Ayers influence the thinking and policies of our nation’s universities.  Me? I’m not watching it. More liberal readers of this blog may be surprised to hear this (as they all pretty much believe we on the right watch Fox • Read More »

Creating Christian Media For Men

September 7, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Creating Christian Media For Men | Filed in: Culture, Kevin, Marketing, MSM and New Media, Religion, Technology.

Or CCMM, for short. I’ve been rolling around ideas inside of my brain about getting men back into the church, and getting worship services back to being like worship and not like a concert.  1. Break the Fourth Wall. And the Third Wall. And the Second Wall, too.I realized what modern church worship really is • Read More »

A Church for Men

And now for something completely different.  Despite having grown up in the church, going overseas on a mission trip and being trained as a bass/baritone, I don’t listen to contemporary Christian music, or CCM as it’s commonly called.  Why? A number of reasons.  An almost complete and total lack of soul. Listen to the CCM, • Read More »

It appears that the dextrosphere is panicking over the fact that an iconic worldwide brand closely associated with a nation of immigrants uses immigrants to sell its product.   For the record, as an immigrant to the U.S., I thought this Coke commercial was pretty neat. It’s a good reminder that people come to this country • Read More »

Rand Standing

It’s a long, long time since I’ve been excited about a political candidate, because they’re hasn’t been a candidate that does things that encourage excitement. Rand Paul is making waves, and I’m liking it.  First off was his inspiring filibuster against assassinations of American citizens on American soil that galvanized the left AND the right • Read More »

Phil Robertson quotes the Bible in an interview with GQ and humbly emphasizes that it is God that judges man, not him.  He’s kicked off his own show, despite A&E’s history of forgiving controversial reality stars.  Ethan Krupp, Obamacare’s pajama-clad poster boy, was accused of racism and anti-Semitism and proudly describes himself as a “liberal • Read More »

If you were unfortunate enough to watch KPNX’s 6:00 news show yesterday, you would have been treated to one of the most blatantly pro-Democrat “stories” of the year running as their lead story. Apparently, according to CNN, 2013 won’t be known as the year that the IRS was used as a weapon of political chicanery • Read More »

Rob Long writes TV shows for a living, and he’s good at it. He’s also a conservative, so when he talks about the realities of reality TV, we should listen.  A&E will cave. Some weasel-worded press release will go out, some oddly-constructed sentence about “faith” and “love” and some other stuff is probably right now • Read More »

It was never a question of “if”, it was only a question of “when.” Phil Robertson, one of the stars of the hugely popular “Duck Dynasty” show on A+E television, has been suspended indefinitely from the show for “anti-gay” remarks he made in an interview with GQ. “It seems like, to me, a vagina — • Read More »

The Magical Negro is typically but not always “in some way outwardly or inwardly disabled, either by discrimination, disability or social constraint,” often a janitor or prisoner. He has no past; he simply appears one day to help the white protagonist. He usually has some sort of magical power, “rather vaguely defined but not the sort of thing one • Read More »

I realized this morning that over the new few weeks, I’ll be hitting the trifecta of center/right radio in the Phoenix area.
