#132 Facebook fan pages for pastors

posted by Stephanie Drury

What more relevant way to encourage and shepherd your flock than via fan page? These are created either by members of their church or by the pastor himself masquerading as a member of the church.

Feedback on Beliefnet’s blog format

Now you can air any grievances about the blog layout and stuff.

#130 The short engagement

posted by Stephanie Drury

When couples in Christian culture get engaged they are encouraged to keep their engagement short. The engagement period is considered a ticking time bomb because of the difficulty of “staying pure.”

#129 Looking down on denominations that don’t observe Lent

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christians feeling superior to each other is a smug little tendency that’s old as dirt.

#128 Not observing Lent

posted by Stephanie Drury

Evangelicals don’t do Lent. If you ask one of them what Lent is about, there is an excellent chance they won’t be able to tell you. To them it’s a Catholic thing.

#127 Knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt

posted by Stephanie Drury

That pesky shadow of doubt thwarts people at every turn. If only it didn’t exist. Christian culture in particular would like to evolve past it and, as such, they bring it up a lot.

#126 Tim Tebow’s mom

posted by Stephanie Drury

Evangelicals love Tim Tebow, so they love his mom by proxy. She’s like the evangelical Virgin Mary.

#125 The iPad

posted by Stephanie Drury

The iPad has sparked widespread dismay but fortunately for Apple, Christian culture is unaffected. Christians who identify as emergent and/or relevant can’t wait to get an iPad of their very own.

#124 Signing off as Satan

posted by Stephanie Drury

In an attempt at reverse psychology and perhaps to lure you with their hilarity, Christian culture signs things with Satan’s name to show you that, obviously, you should do the opposite of what Satan says.

#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

#207 Marrying young
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
