If you’ve read Irregular Times articles for any length of time, you’ll know that the writers here can be fairly dour, glum, down in the mouth, pessimistic, cynical, jaded and bleak at times. But next to our regular visitor and commentator Tom, we’re downright rosy. Seeing some of the same trends we see, Tom has [...]
It’s often said in authoritarian religious circles that “God is NOT mocked!”, “God CANNOT be mocked!,” or “God WILL NOT be mocked!”. As an empirical matter, the God character and His supposed standards are actually mocked on a regular basis. In the first decade of the 21st Century, two religious leaders predicted that such mockery [...]
