#105 Wondering what atheists do on Thanksgiving

posted by Stephanie Drury

Atheists don’t get much clemency from Christian culture. They are generally thought to be misguided and inclined to despair.

#83 Memorial Day

Memorial Day doesn’t have anything to do with Jesus, but Christian culture sure does get behind it.

#153 Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day doesn’t have anything to do with Christianity, but churches really get into it.

#138 The history of St. Patrick’s Day

posted by Stephanie Drury

Oh, to be an emergent Christian on St. Patrick’s Day. You get to tweet and blog about the missional relevance of St. Patrick, and missional relevance is your favorite subject.

#112 CHRISTmas instead of Xmas

posted by Stephanie Drury

Pro-CHRISTmas campaigners dislike the use of Xmas in lieu of Christmas. Although X has been used for centuries as a sanctioned abbreviation for ??????? (Greek for Christ), Christian culture has a sneaking suspicion this is really a calculated method to nudge Christ out of his own holiday.

#110 Saying “God is moving”

posted by Stephanie Drury

This is a popular saying with hazy meaning. Taken literally you might think God has abandoned his ancestral seat and is swanning about, but you infer from the context that can’t be what they mean.

#109 Keeping Christ in Christmas

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christian culture is alarmed by all things politically correct. God forbid you say Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.

#105 Wondering what atheists do on Thanksgiving

    Atheists don’t get much clemency from Christian culture. They are generally thought to be misguided and inclined to despair. While Christians are busy thanking God on Thanksgiving they have been known to wonder aloud how atheists could possibly celebrate this […]

#58 Ugly Christmas Sweater parties

posted by Stephanie Drury

Very popular with singles groups and college ministries. People who aren’t Christians love Cheesy Christmas Sweater Parties too. Maybe it’s one of the areas where the two cultures intersect. Although at a Christian culture party there won’t be any alcohol, that’s for dang sure.

#51 Fall Festivals

posted by Stephanie Drury

Christians aren’t so sure about celebrating a holiday that revolves around demons and evil. Many of them do research about Halloween’s origins and decide they don’t want to celebrate what orginated as a pagan holiday.

#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
