Saturday Ramblings, May 24, 2014

Football Temples, 4,000 year old dinosaurs, The Church of Beyonce, and the return of the firing squad. Happy weekend, fellow imonkers. Did you know that in the history of the International Religious Freedom Act, there is only one person ever banned from entering the U.S.? His name: Narendra Modi. His occupation: He was just elected prime minister […]

Saturday Ramblings, May 17, 2014

Satanic broccoli, baptizing Martians, and Godzilla as a Christ-figure. Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers. First, some lighter news.  Here in Indiana, we are anxiously awaiting the next round of the NBA playoffs, where the valiant and virtuous Pacers battle the Evil Empire (aka, the Miami Heat) for the Eastern Conference championship. And the Oklahoma City […]

Saturday Ramblings, May 10, 2014

Hello fellow imonkers. I hope you are enjoying your Saturday. The last few weeks I have poked fun at Chaplain Mike’s fandom of the Chicago Cubs. But since I respect Mike more highly than almost anyone I know, I have vowed to lay off. For a week. Did you know that one-fourth of American Hispanics […]

Happy May, fellow imonkers. First, a quick baseball update (Chaplain Mike loves baseball updates): As of Friday, the Chicago Cubs have played 26 games (out of a 162 game schedule) and are only 9.5 games behind first place. If my math is correct (highly unlikely) this means that at this pace they will only be […]

Saturday Ramblings, April 26, 2014

Hello, imonkers. I hope you are enjoying your spring. First up to bat: Chaplain Mike’s Chicago Cubbies celebrated the 100 year anniversary of Wrigley Field on Wednesday. If you know Cub history you will not be shocked to learn that they lost. After taking a three run lead into the ninth. And being one out […]

Saturday Ramblings, April 12, 2014

Happy Saturday, imonkers.  It finally feels a little like spring in the Midwest.  And, good news for Chaplain Mike, as of Friday afternoon the Cubbies are only four games out of first place! Did you know there is a new documentary promoting geocentrism? Star Trek’s Captain Kathryn Janeway (aka Kate Mulgrew) narrates it, and it features […]

Saturday Ramblings, April 5, 2014

Happy April, imonkers.  Tuesday was April Fool’s Day.  Did you pull any pranks?  Have any pulled on you?  Do share in the comments. Make them up if you have to. I have a friend who calls April 1 the Atheist Holiday (referencing Psalm 14:1) but I find this extremely uncharitable.  But did you know how […]

Saturday Ramblings, March 29, 2014

Hello, imonk family.  I hope it is starting to get warm wherever you live. Several of the imonk writers (myself, Chaplain Mike, Lisa Dye, Damaris Zehner and Joe the Plumber) were let out the asylum long enough to meet for breakfast this week.  And Pope Francis met with President Obama this week. Of course, the liberal […]

Saturday Ramblings, March 22, 2014

Happy Saturday, imonkers.  Those of us in the states are in the midst of March Madness, that time of year when athletic teenagers make obscene amounts of money for tv networks.  And Monday was St. Patrick’s Day, of course.  Did you wear green? Drink green beer? You know, if you were Hindu, the day would […]

Saturday Ramblings, March 15, 2014

Welcome to the weekend, fellow imonkers.  It is now about two months that I have had the privilege of writing the ramblings, and I think Pope Francis made the cut every week.  But since Martha had two wonderful posts on Francis of Monday and Tuesday of this week, I will refrain from all pope-talk.  If […]
