Outen the lights

This is my last post as The Amish Jihadist. While it’s been fun, and the lovely people at The Other Journal are wickedly awesome (thanks, guys!), it’s never made a lot of sense to me as to why The Amish Jihadist should have an online presence. That move in and of itself makes for a […]

Allen Verhey: The Death of a Christian Ethicist

In 2004, I moved back to NC from the lovely yet cold city of Chicago. I had recently attained the somewhat coveted status of ABD and decided to relocate back to God’s country. Looking for work, I began teaching at Elon University as well as working as a teaching assistant for a number of courses […]

“No higher than the epiglottis . . . “

Denmark is banning halal and kosher slaughter of animals, because such killing requires that the animal be conscious when killed. They want them to feel it, I guess.

After Crucifixion: A Keen Book (and interview)

Trans Soul Rebel (does god bless your transsexual heart?)

After thirteen plus years of screaming to Against Me! (only thirtenn–I know, I was late to the party), I finally got to see them two weeks ago in VA Beach. It was, of course, stellar. It slayed all things. If you’re not yet on board, pick up their new album Transgender Dysphoria Blues. It’s badass […]

‘Effing Feminists? Possibly. Not sure. But Probably.

I recently posted this over at Eating Anarcrow and received numerous emails attacking both the creator of the t-shirt and my ”advertisement” of her shirt. Apparently, I am ”supposed to know better.” Pfft. That’s a hoot. While it very well may be the case that I should know better, it’s precisely because I don’t know […]

Oi to the World! (now bugger off)

First of all, Oi to the World! was written by The Vandals, not that obnoxiously horrible “I don’t know when to stop singing, so I’ll just keep belting ‘oooohhh’ throughout ever ‘effing line in a song” crappy singer Gwen Stefani. But, I guess, since the song is about unity I should be nice. And it’s […]
