Is Carrie Underwood a Jesus Invoker or a Vigilante?

Carrie Underwood is a big star and she exploded as one of the winners of American Idol.
I find Ms. Underwood to be rather boring and without an invigorating personality, but the fact that her debut country album sold over 6 million copies says something about my taste in music or what country music fans find valuable in the promotional package that is Ms. Underwood’s carefully crafted good-girl facade made of peaches-and-cream and lots of virtuosity in the name of God and His only son.

Don Imus and the Rutgers Nappy Headed Hos

The Rev. Al Sharpton wants Don Imus fired for Racist remarks Imus made on-the-air last week about the Rutgers University women’s basketball team.

I agree with Al Sharpton even though I have written positively about Imus here in the past.

Sometimes there are things spoken that are so inconsiderate and so hurtful that no apology and no excuse can ever erase the psychological and physical damage done.

Imus, and his show Imus in the Morning, allegedly have a well-documented history of Racism and intolerance and he needs to immediately and permanently leave the airwaves:

Which Came First: The Jesus or The Egg?

We know there is a Naked Chocolate Jesus hanging around, in situ, waiting to be eaten or melted. While his future hangs in the balance, I was led to wonder on a twist to the age old conundrum.

Commenter Regret: Why We Cannot Care

Urban Semiotic has been around in some form for over three years. We’ve been hosted here on WordPress.com since the end of October 2006 and we’re loving it.

That regret rears its selfish head when people ask — hours, days, weeks, years later — to have Comments they wrote here removed from public view.

Scobleizer Found Dead in His Grave

Don’t let anyone tell you Jesus isn’t good for business! As you can see in the screenshot below my Jesus Found Dead in His Grave post is hot with a rising bullet on the WordPress.com front page much in the same way our Lindsay Lohan series of articles made us super-popular a couple of months ago.

Jesus Found Dead in His Grave

Big news was broken yesterday:  Jesus and his family have been founded dead in their graves in Israel.

What does this discovery mean for the religious myths that bind us and for the sustenance of the Resurrection ideal to Christians across the world?

How does one now translate God?

Without the Resurrection, doesn’t Christianity become an empty vessel?

How can we begin to live if Jesus Christ has been found dead?

Does His death strengthen our faith?

Or does it weaken it with unanswerable questions that sting us like burrs in our socks?

Jesus is Dead!
