    Ep 28 - Thoughts about Gentrification

    Ep 28 - Thoughts about Gentrification

    I was in San Francisco this weekend and heard the restaurant we were eating at was scheduled to be torn down for new housing development.
    Whether this is true or not, this inspired my thoughts on Gentrification. It's not that I'm against modernization. But there's a lie. We blame big corporations and big developers causing the disappearance of local Chinatowns, but it wouldn't be so easy if it were for burdensome government regulation and fees.
    Look Walmart can afford to pay for regulations and fees to run business, but it's the small business that can't. You think that a regulation designed to hurt Target and Walmart will actually hurt them. It doesn't, it hurts the small business trying to compete.
    I'll admit. I'm a little green on the subject, so let's talk about it on Facebook.

    Episode 27 - What's Up with Polygamy?

    Episode 27 - What's Up with Polygamy?

    This is by no means any proof, but God allowed polygamy in the Old Testament. Yes, even though it was a sin. So what does this have to do with the war on homosexuality?

    Ep 26 - My Most Controversial Statement

    Ep 26 - My Most Controversial Statement

    This is the statement that will get you to hate me. You will unfriend me. Unsubscribe from this podcast. And troll me to the end of my days. I was surprised but it's true.
    Here's the statement:
    For all my life, white people have been pretty nice to me.
    I could lie and say they all were nice but with a well hidden racist undertone. But I have this fault of seeing the good in people.

    Ep 25 - Homosexuality and the Book of Leviticus

    Ep 25 - Homosexuality and the Book of Leviticus

    Spoiler Alert - The Bible is clear...The Old Testament is clear. Homosexuality is a sin. But why? Context is always a good way to understand why God does the things he does.

    Ep 24 - Real Thoughts on Racism

    Ep 24 - Real Thoughts on Racism

    When it comes to my real feelings about racism, I tend to be very jokey about it. I do that because I'm frustrated by the inconsistencies of those who claim they aren't racists and believe that white people are the worst things about America.
    The current debate about racism is less about peace and equality and more about politics. Politically we need to show my opponent is more racist than me.
    If your goal isn't peace and equality, then you're really not serious about ending racism.

    Ep 23 - Ending Racism

    Ep 23 - Ending Racism

    I have a solution to ending racism. It's simple, but it's not easy by any means.
    First, we have to seek peace and become peacemakers. Second, we have to forgive.
    Simple, yet hard, but not impossible.
