The New Viagra Commercial Is Disturbing

The new commercial from Viagra is … There are so many words to choose from that would perfectly fit the description: irritating, embarrassing, awkward, and disturbing. There I was, watching some post-season Major League Baseball, all alone, in my basement (okay, man-cave) doing my homework when this tall blonde British woman starts looking me in the eye and telling me how I should consider consuming pills that help me get… okay you get it. It’s a commercial for Viagra and it’s among the most uncomfortable of all the commercials I’ve endured in 28 years of life on earth. It...

A Convert’s Journey with the “Rapture”

In my journey across the Tiber, the discoveries of the truths of Catholicism truly overwhelmed me.

Jesus Was No “Myth”

Many are familiar with the famous “Trilemma” of C.S. Lewis, that Jesus was a Lunatic, a Liar, or Lord. That is, Jesus was either crazy, a deceiver, or was actually telling the truth about His status as the Son of God.
