On DOWN... 

Towards the end of 2013 I realized I had some big decisions to make about my ministry-especially my music. I was getting ready to release a compilation (20 songs from 20 records) of the past decade in 2014. It was very clear to me that I had to decide what the next decade would look like musically.  I’m exceedingly proud of and grateful for what I’ve done but, I’ve DONE it.

Contemporary Christian Music has never appealed to me and I was at a loss of how to convey Christ in my music after releasing so…

To Whom It May Concern... 

To whom it may concern: I so desperately wish you could have held on just a little while longer, to have lived to see the day that the world's heart grew big enough to accept your kind-maybe not entirely yet but enough to allow you to grow to accept yourself enough that you'd never let a handful of cowards, bigots and hatemongers rob you of the joy, blessing and eternal bliss God has designed for you. I know you are in Good Hands and I pray that your passing, and the passing of way too many others just…

On The Religious Freedom Act 

I, Paisley Yankolovich  have a relationship with Jesus Christ. There is no religion in my life, therefore I need no Religious Freedom. I am called by my Master to be a servant and slave to all. Therefore, what one looks like, what one smells like, what god one worships (or what devil) and who they choose to love has NO BEARING on how I am called to love, serve and minister to them anyway the Lord makes able.

 

If anyone claims to be my brother or sister in Christ know this: I am called to hold YOU…

On "The Normal Heart" 

Watching "The Normal Heart" is ripping my heart out. And it's reminding me once again why I started this ministry and why I will NEVER suffer ANYONE who has no clue what it is like to be gay debate the moral, psychological and spiritual issues involved until their moral, psychological and spiritual shit is spotless.

 

And don't say Jesus made you perfect because He did not save you to pass judgment on ANYONE. (See Ephesians 6:12) Please, my well-meaning brothers and sisters, watch this film, be…

A Great Christmas Gift 

Last night I received this letter on Facebook from someone who I have never met face to face but has been a huge support nonetheless. Sometimes Facebook doesn't suck...

 

Dear Mr. Yankolovich,

I'm about to pull the plug on my Facebook account, and I have a few words I'd like to say to you before I do, so here goes....I'm by no means a religious man. I never have been, and to be honest with you, the chances of that are changing between now and my death are quite slim. Anyhow, the holidays bring out…

On "Noah" - The Movie 

I knew that when I left the house today to see Darren Aronofsky’s “Noah” I was going to be doing a blog this evening.  As someone who continually criticizes Christian-made films (I have not yet seen “God’s Not Dead”) but praises secular visions (“The Last Temptation Of Christ,” “Jesus Christ Superstar,” “The Ten Commandments”), I knew this $130 million Hollywood epic would be ripe for scrutiny and it did not disappoint.

Darren Aronofsky, famous for “Black Swan” and one of my top-ten faves, “PI”, has…

On The Arizona Religious Beliefs Bill 

How is it not obvious to Christians that a message is being sent out, "We don't want you." Well, the message coming back is clear: "You don't want our business? We don't want your God."

Christians should be challenging this because it makes us look like Nazis-didn't they put up similar signs about Jews?

Shame on my gutless, bigoted, Bible-illiterate brothers and sisters who think something good happened here.

Real Christians should be rallying and revolting to make damned sure we're not mistaken for…

A Great Prayer 

Lord Jesus, wherever we look we see a world that needs your love and compassion.

And we know we are called to move, to embody your Spirit, to bring comfort to the suffering.

May our passion for people be as Yours, self-sacrificing and all-encompassing.

Let us be Your hands and feet, Your voice and touch, Your smile and strength.

Teach us to love as You love-without condition, without wavering, without fear.

Grant us the courage and conviction to DO DOMETHING that will reach those reaching for you.

Not…

GLEE As Cinema Verite 

I first started watching GLEE to have something in common with my kids. I
had an ongoing love/hate relationship with the show. I loved the way it
introduced transgender themes, I hated how it butchered ROCKY HORROR as an
obvious Halloween ratings ploy.

Tonight I cried violently for an hour straight as this popular TV program
said goodbye to one of its main characters and, sadly, the actor who
played him. I intended not to watch the episode as I am vehement in my
stance against artists who commit suicide or die of…
