I am Charlie — Je suis Charlie


No, obviously I am not. He’s dead now, because of two morons who didn’t believe in their religion enough to let it win the argument on merits. Because the moment you pick up a gun to answer an opinion, a

About faith crises


Last weekend I was asked whether I had ever had a crisis of faith. This wasn’t the first time, but I had to ask for some room to define, to interpret the question. I will write about my chain of

This post was first published at Nine Moons, where you can go and read comments and post your own. My wife and I have 5 kids. Our daughter (one of them, not the one who has a 5-month-old son) is
