Bad News: Stephen Baldwin Is Staying

posted by Tony Jones

I am sorry to report that Stephen Baldwin is staying in the United States.  Baldwin, a B-list celebrity and convert to conservative evangelicalism, had declared to Fox News that if Barack Stephen Baldwin and friend.jpgObama won the presidency, he would move out of the country.  We should have known that was too good to be true.  He now says he was kidding.

He still hasn’t elucidated further on the revelation that God gave him during the campaign that Obama is the antichrist…

Hahaha… I confess I didn’t know much about this (unintentionally hilarious) gent — I was just on the age cusp to be paying much attention to pop culture circa “Bio Dome” — until earlier this morning, thanks to the Onion’s “A.V. Club” editorial review of his born-again memoir ( http://tinyurl.com/6e6j77 ). The excerpts from the text reach exciting new heights of faux-humble indulgence/hilarity.

That was a stupid thing for Stephen to say. I’m a Southern Baptist minister and I have no intention of leaving my country regardless who is in the White House. I’ll make my stand and hold my ground right where I always have.

Highly ironic given the controversy over Alec’s supposed statements in 2000.

I saw it live, he was kidding. Shame on you for disparging him when it is unfounded

I think that this is pretty amusing considering his brother Alec said the EXACT SAME THING about Bush.

Too bad he won’t be leaving. That would be one less evangie to have to listen to or read about. Stephen Baldwin wet his pants and punked out after 9/11 and “got Jesus”. I tend to agree with Ted Turner: it’s a religion for losers.

I am glad he is staying. I think it is high time he and Kirk Cameron do a Left Behind Movie together… they are such great actors. (said very tongue in cheek)

Ending Christian Euphemisms: "Fundamentalist"
I've taken some heat in the comment section for using yesterday's post on "unbiblical" and a "higher view of scripture" as a thin foil for my own disregard of biblical standards. To the contrary, I was pointing to the use of the word unbiblical as a stand-in for a particularly thin hermeneutic. Ther
