#2 Sending Emails That Are Supposedly Written By Their Baby

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christian culture sends many emails and Christmas cards that are written as if they are from a baby. This is considered funny and/or cute. Here is an example of an average message that a Christian culture baby would write:

Emma wants to tell you…that she’s going to be turning 1! She (and mommy and daddy) are praying for a healthy birthday and thanking the Lord for this brand new year in the life He created!

Love,
Emma (and mommy and daddy)

Now I’ll be buggered if 11-month-old Emma can

1. type
2. pray
3. anticipate a birthday

But Christian culture seems to find it so absurd that it is funny. This is a hallmark of membership.

this one’s popular with all kinds of mommy/daddy identity people on the internet. Christians have no where near cornered the market on this piece of stupidity. The only thing that’s worse is stuff that is supposedly authored by a pet.

Sobé wants to tell you…that he's the new Dalai Lama! He (and millions of Tibetans) are praying someone will rescue him from this schizoid evangelical culture! Kill mommy and daddy if necessary, to install Sobé on his rightful throne.There is an actual, literal throne with lots of sparklies, right?Love,Sobé (and Madonna and Tim Robbins)

#210 Mandatory chapel at Bible college
Most Christian colleges require students to attend chapel services. Chapel is not an option, it's part of the curriculum. If you don't fulfill your chapel quota, you don't graduate. Though Christianity purports to operate under the auspices of grace and generally claims that church attendance isn't

#209 Perceiving persecution
Christian culture is vigilant about persecution. Jesus said being persecuted goes with the territory of following him, and some of those followers are really on the lookout. Christian culture sees persecution in all sorts of things and they often say they're under attack. The institution of marriage

#208 Missionary dating
When someone in Christian culture meets a delicious non-Christian they will usually assume a missionary position with them. Missionary dating is when you date a non-Christian for the express purpose of proselytizing so as to instigate their conversion. Youth group leaders heartily disapprove of mis

Christian culture gets married young. The reason isn't entirely clear, but the general consensus is that it drastically lowers the risk of fornication. You just can't fornicate if you're married, and that takes care of that. Fornication is Christian culture's natural enemy. Bible colleges (aka
