Get Out and Vote!

Share on TumblrTweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someonePrint this page

On the eve of Super Tuesday, I have only one message for you… get off your butt and vote! Sure, there’s plenty of reasons as to why not vote, but I’ll give you three compelling reasons to go out and vote.

I know. I know that you’re feeling disenfranchised about the whole electoral process and I’m with you on that. It’s a broken system run by broken people… but the same could be said for the institutionalized church. A handful of you show up a few Sundays a month to waste an hour of your time, so I digress. Here are my 3 main reasons to get out and vote.

Here are my 3 main reasons to get out and vote:
  1. It’s your minimum, basic, civic duty as a citizen of this country. Voting is like paying for parking tickets, watering your lawn or being picked for jury duty. No one enjoys it, but it’s kind of like the kale…  we know in the long run that it’s part of the greater good. So hold your nose and enter the voting booth.
  2. There are other issues and candidates at stake. I hear your pain, no one wants to go on a double date with the Orange Don or Crooked Hillary. I completely understand. They’re like that couple that keeps texting you to hang out. When it comes to voting, there are more pressing issues on the ballot than those dysfunctional two with power issues. I voted early and there were 26 other issues on the ballot. If you can’t stomach the options for commander and chief, just remember that there are other things going on in the country and your local community. Let your voice be heard.
  3. If you don’t vote, you have no right to complain for the next four years. Yes, I know that harping and complaining about politics is an American pastime, but if you don’t go and vote I’m not going to let you have that right. You’ve been revoked. If you can’t bother to get up off your butt and vote… you just need to remain silent for the next four years in regards to politics. I’m sorry, but it’s true. Shush.

Needless to say, voting often doesn’t make a huge difference in the big races, but in the smaller local races, it can be a big deal. Complain all you want about so many things… but just complain to yourself as you wait in line on Super Tuesday to vote.

A snarky take on voting differently

Snarky Faith 9/20/16

black_download_button_aa22c4b316be6f4bc130

A rundown of how we, in America, find ourselves stuck within a two-party, political system in regards to voting. Could there another way? If we don’t like options A or B… is there a point in voting for options C or D. Ho do we vote differently? Too often, we feel like our vote doesn’t make a difference, but every vote has the opportunity to change the future. Is there a viable alternative to a two-party system? If so, how do we incite change? Join us to hear what that could look like as we skewer through life, culture and spirituality.

A snarky take on Trump: the Orange Messiah

Snarky Faith 6/14/16

A rundown of the Trump: the Orange Messiah and his courtship with the religious right. The new messiah looks little like Jesus and yet we see Christians flocking to him for all the wrong reasons. Call it what you want, but some Christians are in need of a bit of a wakeup call (and maybe some therapy).

#TrumpBible Brilliance

Most times the internet is a vast wasteland of selfies, memes and adorable kitten pictures, but there are those special moments in time when everything converges into something spectacular. Thank you internet for birthing the #TrumpBible hashtag. It’s an amazing and evolving bit of social genius.

All of this stemmed from Donald Trump side stepping a question about the Bible in an interview last week. When asked what his favorite Bible verse was, he declined, saying “I wouldn’t want to get into it. Because to me, that’s very personal…the Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t want to get into specifics.”

In response to his dodgery, the internet has come to the rescue, which is how the #TrumpBible was born. I’m always up for some good snark, and the idea of re-imaging the Bible according to the Don, is brilliant. So far on Twitter, there are over 10,000 tweets…err verses and counting. #TrumpBible is a prime example of the internet getting it right.

Here are a few brilliant examples:
