John Pavlovitz: I'm a Christian Pastor. Evangelicals Have to Be Defeated in 2022.


I’ve been a pastor in the church for over two decades, much of that in predominantly white churches in the American South.

I’ve spent countless hours in church staff meetings and men’s Bible studies and youth pastor conferences.

I’ve stayed connected on social media with thousands of people still there in those churches. I read what they share and post and amplify and I know how they think and what they believe.

I need you to understand something and I say it without any hyperbole: white Evangelicals need to be stopped, now.

Homemade cream of mushroom soup. Simple and delicious.


I had a package of baby bella mushrooms in the fridge that were about to go south on me so I decided this would be a good time to try making my own cream of mushroom soup. The only change I made was to add a little more flour than the recipe called for and a little dried thyme. It turned out really good. I am freezing some of it to see how it works when thawed. It tastes good by itself, but would be great to use as a base for gravy or to use in casseroles.

I put out my hummingbird feeders today. I wonder how long it will be until I have guests.

Has anyone had any sightings yet?

Rep. Matt Gaetz Votes Against Capping Insulin Prices,

Says People Should Just Lose Weight

On Thursday, the House passed a Democratic-sponsored bill to cap the price of insulin at $35 a month for most Americans, an effort to crack down on price-gouging by drug makers who have raised the price of a lifesaving product used by millions of Americans by almost 500 percent in recent years. Some people now pay more than $1,000 a month for insulin to treat diabetes, even with insurance. Democrats had been seeking a way to rein in drugs prices overall in a broader policy proposal, but it had little chance of passing the Senate. Hoping for bipartisan compromise, they siloed the insulin price control as its own measure. Still, only 12 House Republicans voted in favor of a bill that’s wildly popular with the American public.

Among those voting “no” was Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), the GOP’s leading troll, who has come up with perhaps one of the most offensive justifications for GOP opposition to the popular bill. In his newsletter Friday, Gaetz told his constituents that he opposed the bill because fat people, not Big Pharma, are responsible for driving up the cost of insulin. He suggested that Type 2 diabetes, which is often linked to obesity, could be cured if only people would workout more and lose weight, at which point they wouldn’t need insulin anymore and the drug costs would fall without government intervention.
