Can I be honest? I think many of us who are engaged in the blogging world (Christian or otherwise) are suffering from a disease. Not a disease like HIV or diabetes. Maybe it’s not even a disease. Maybe it’s a […]

Her little hands held the Bible like she needed every word to be true, like she’d seen enough pain and felt enough heartache in the ten years that she’d been alive to know that there must be more. Her fingers […]
I found this video over at Christian Nightmares. At some point in this video, the Christian teacher says to the group of women… “I don’t want to see your boobs!” Why? Because women should be modest. And boobs aren’t modest, […]
Take One For The Team from Justin McRoberts on Vimeo. I love Justin McRoberts. We met for coffee once. It was one of those meetings that felt divine on some level. Instant camaraderie. Similar stories. Similar passions. He’s got way […]
It’s a cliche: What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… And over the years, the ad agency who came up with this clever slogan has created a number of commercial campaigns that have caused many of us to giggle, shake […]
This post is the continuation of yesterday’s post about prayer. You can read Part 1 here. I think about the last time I prayed prostrate. Almost two years ago. My friends Angie and Todd had learned a few days before […]
I wrote the following essay 18 months ago, at a time when Jessica and I were struggling to make ends meet. This is part 1. Part 2 will post tomorrow. It’s Tuesday morning and I am sprawled out in the […]

According to scripture, upon returning to heaven after his death and resurrection, Jesus sat down in a chair next to God. I imagine them sitting like this often, watching the events on Planet Earth and making commentary. My guess would […]
Effective? Love that Ron Jeremy makes a cameo. With sheep. Not sure why the puppet is there, but all in all, it’s a decent ad that might serve as a good reminder to parents. Found here. Thanks Matt.
According to Smoking Gun… Meet Robert Norton Kennedy. The South Carolina man, 51, was arrested Saturday morning for assault and battery. He is being held in the Horry County jail on lieu of $5000 bail. According to the suspect’s forehead, […]

When I learned that a part of Mike Huckabee’s response to Osama Bin Laden’s death was “Welcome to hell, bin Laden”, I thought it was a joke or a misquote or a line from a Toby Keith song. Since it’s […]
The special effects alone make this work watching. And the “man on the street” portions are great, too, though they’re completely scripted and poorly acted out… But the BEST parts… the very BEST parts of this video are the Hell […]
Art credit: Karen Bates. So Rachel Held Evans has her hands full this week. Not only is she trying to “restore unity,” she’s also attempting to raise 1000s of dollars for clean water in Africa. So please, let’s help her […]
The conversation happens between Bill O’Reilly and Pastoral Counselor Jack McKinney. I’m not familiar with Jack. But he handled himself pretty well, considering he’s on The O’Reilly Factor. Hell is such a weird topic to discuss, whether it’s being preached […]
No, this isn’t old. Like the good patriots over at American Jesus point out… What’s perhaps most incredible about this video is the fact that it’s not one of those classic late 80′s, early 90′s videos from a bygone era […]

The following review is by Adam Ellis The fact that Rob Bell’s new book is considered controversial is as much a testimony to the marketing prowess of HarperOne (not to mention the unintentional marketing prowess of some critics), as it […]
I don’t know about this. It’s well-made. But does the church setting/denomination really fit the theology? Maybe it does. It just seems that a Catholic/Lutheran/ Episcopal or whatever kind of church this is (my point being: it’s not Rick Warren’s […]
I’m sure they meant to add “twice removed”… Sent to me by Jarbas.
This post is written by Eric Olsen… Last week, I created “Good Friday”, a parody of the infamous Rebecca Black’s song, “Friday”. This video achieved brief mainstream notoriety when celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton posted the video on PerezHilton.com. To be […]

What the crap is Pat talking about? Poor Pat. Why doesn’t he just retire? Or why doesn’t somebody retire him? I don’t think he should be shot like a lame stallion. But he should leave broadcasting for good and perhaps […]
Uh oh. Heaven is keeping a close eye on what’s happening in Vegas. All you silly sinners who actually believe the advertising ploy that your sin “stays in Vegas,” you’ve been duped! Apparently God’s been keeping impeccable records on all […]

Like the guys at American Jesus, I’m not sure what this church promotional video is trying to communicate. Thoughts?
I found this at Dangerous Minds. It’s a clip about the dangers of rock-n-roll from 1982’s Rock: It’s Your Decision. I can’t tell you how many of these types of sermons I sat through as a child. Barry Manilow gets […]

So what is this trying to say? That Darwin loves Jesus? That they love each other? That they make out sometimes when adhered to a car’s bumper? Or perhaps they meant that Jesus loves Darwin? What do you think? Sent […]

This sign was sent to me by Chris (he also snapped the picture). He found it in the bathroom of a Christian bookstore in Alabama. This sign begs a few question though: 1) Do you think Jesus washed his hands […]
I know very little about Japanese animation, mostly because I’ve never been much of a fan. (Hated “Speed Racer” when I was a kid). However, from what I can tell, this is pretty well done. It kept my attention throughout, […]

This is pretty funny (if you know anything about Seventh Day Adventists)…
The father of the young singer in this video sent this to me! And he told me to be nice. As if I’m ever mean?! Well, his daughter can certainly sing better than Rebecca Black. All in all, not a […]

I’m not sure this is what Jon Acuff means by “Jesus Juking”. I think this might just be good ole fashion passive aggressiveness. Or perhaps this is juking Jesus.
