  • “John is one in a growing multitude of ex-members. They’re sometimes called the de-churched. They have not abandoned their faith. They have not joined the also-growing legion of those with no religious affiliation—often called the Nones. Rather, John has joined the Dones.” http://www.churchleaders.com/outreach-missions/outreach-missions-articles/177144-thom-schultz-rise-of-the-done-with-church-population.html#.VJ9_jD5llcP.facebook

 

  • This is a shallow examination of “the chickens coming home to roost,” but I like where the writer was trying to go with it. The “demon” within black men in regard to domestic violence and child abuse is no different from the demon within other men. I imagine domestic abuse in the U.S. is lower than in other countries where women have fewer rights. Irregardless, it’s wrong. But I think what she was trying to get at here is the age old question of “Can we separate the person from the product? Can we separate the artist from the art?” I don’t think we will ever all agree on an answer to that question. As a writer, and therefore artist, I have always believed that the artist and the art are inseparable, because the artist creates the art. Everything we put into the universe is a manifestation of some part of who we are, whether we want it to be, or not. Even when your art is your income, you can’t separate the two, because everything is coming from some level of consciousness or unconsciousness. That’s just my two cents… http://www.forharriet.com/2014/12/the-demon-within-black-men-brilliance.html
