Comedy Before the Seat of Scoffers

Introduction  And just when I thought I had nothing to post Brian Mattson rushed to my aid with an interesting third part in his, “unplanned series on Christian conduct in the public square.” Which means I will do a second piece in so many weeks on Christians and comedy.

Of Pharisees and Dissected Frogs

Over the past few years, really since the election of one Orange Man, it has been a pretty common refrain that late night comedy is simply not funny.
