Stuff Christian Culture Likes


My religion podcast

posted by Stephanie Drury

The Grapes of Rad podcast I was on the other night is up now. Religion was the theme and we kind of told our stories and people called in to tell theirs and talk about what they struggle with and what they’re glad of and what they’re resentful of. So you can listen to it here and leave them a comment if you like.

Steph, you just keep getting cooler and cooler! I’m glad that one day way back when I found your site while doing a google search on the correlation between Christian culture and Coldplay.
Sincerely,
A fan from the blogger.com days

Maybe I’ll try again later, but I didn’t get very far…I couldn’t make it past the guy talking about his catheter. TMI, dude.

Sorry Tony! I think that’s as gross as it got. But then we talked about Glenn Beck and Revelation so maybe it did get grosser? haha

OK, I’m listening now, and it’s actually quite interesting as a cultural window. Based on the first few minutes I would never have imagined those guys grew up in evangelical Protestant homes.
This is really foreign to me. I grew up in a thoroughly secular home and came to the Cristian faith as an adult, so the whole “questioning what you grew up with” thing is in the entirely opposite direction for me. That’s part of why I enjoy this blog…it’s a fascinating glimpse into a world I didn’t really know existed. I knew about the ticky-tacky Jesus Junk phenomenon – - I used to get high and watch TBN in college – - but that people raised with that stuff sometimes grow up to ask intelligent questions about it is a revelation. Thanks!

#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
