Archives For “hate


So a few weeks ago, I asked via Twitter who I should “hate.” The answer was swift, and universal: Tyler Stanton. And by “universal” I mean that one person, Rob Shepherd, replied. Therefore, as duly nominated, and elected, by a majority of one (don’t worry, Rob, your time is coming), I hereby bring you my stinging ire. My flaming flagon of Haterade for Tyler Stanton!

Why do I “hate” Tyler? Let me count the ways:

Calcific Bursitis, how do I hate you? Let me count the ways:

You, who have no place being there, have taken up residence in my wife’s shoulder. You were not invited in, and yet unlike the vampires of lore, you pushed your way in. What gives? If I could rebuke you like those TV preachers say, I so would.


You have made her shout, cry, scream, plead, beg, cajole, for some kind, for any kind, of relief.

You have made her long for the pangs of childbirth! Because at least childbirth has an end. It’s a known commodity. You, Calcific Bursitis, are a parasite–hijacking nerve fibers, forestalling the use of an arm, singing a song of woe…

One that goes to 11! And not in a good way.

But your day is coming. It may not be soon enough–as soon as we’d like it–but it’s coming!

For someday, as with all suffering, you will have to give way:

“And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (Rev. 21:3-4, ESV).

In the meantime, I hate you, Calcific Bursitis, and all that you do.

While you make us hurt now, these sufferings are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be.

Calcific bursitis, thou shalt die! But we, ultimately, shall not!

How has God met you in your place of suffering?


Alright. I need to get this off my chest. It’s been seething inside of me since I read it (in one sitting!).

I “hate” Bryan Allain’s new eBook, 31 Days to Finding Your Blogging Mojo.

Today, I was going to try to shock you by saying how much I (sometimes) “hate” Jesus. Only that wouldn’t be entirely true. And you know what they say about a partial truth… Anyway, it’s more like I “hate” the things He lets me go through–I mean He’s always up in my grill, in my business, telling me to take up my cross. I feel like the one who’s gotta do all the changing in this relationship! On account of He’s “Christ Jesus, the same yesterday, today, and forever.”

Man, does He push my buttons!

Goodmornoonevening, everyone! Welcome to the return of Wednesday Haterade! The “Hate” was on hiatus last week on account of a disk crash at VPS.Net. Thanks, VPS! You’re awesome! NOT!!!! (Thankfully, my awesome host, BlogRocket Hosting is dropping VPS like a potato grown in the fields outside Chernobyl).

But you didn’t stop by to read about my hosting woes, right? You came for the “hate!” Well, shame on you! Don’t you know it’s wrong to hate?
