Reading Time: 7 minutes No deed exists that is so disgustingly harmful and hypocritical that evangelical Christians cannot excuse and allow it somehow. It simply needs to be committed by someone they view as important and necessary.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Today, let’s look at what Thallus wrote — or rather, at what later Christians said Thallus wrote, and why it’s just not convincing as a source.
Reading Time: 7 minutes We’re about to start a new topic that I expect to last a while: 1st-century writers. First, though, let me show you why this topic is so important to me. See, these 1st-century writers’ utter silence about one particular subject rattled my faith in Christianity in a way that I would never recover.
Reading Time: 11 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday (and the day before, really), we touched on a post by evangelical Josh Buice, who appears to be a very fervent Calvinist. At one point, he tries hard to assert that his brand of Jesus-flavored authoritarian misogyny (JFAM) does not represent oppression of women at all. I disagree in the strongest possible […]

But they got a huge amount of support from Calvinists all the same. Calvinists spoke their language — and then turned it against them.

Indeed, a vast number of Christians consider themselves to be very logical people who only adopted their various (contradictory) opinions as a […]
Reading Time: 5 minutes Today, I offer you a quick lesson for your Degree in Christianese at Fundagelical U: How to Speak Endtimes.
Reading Time: 8 minutes Today, I’ll show you how atrocity apologetics follows right along behind this bizarre and grotesque doctrine, and why evangelicals just can’t get away from shocking abuses committed by people who try to use it as a guiding principle for life.
Reading Time: 10 minutes In an interview, you see, Al Mohler defended slavery as a practice. He did it for a very simple reason, and one he can’t escape any more than his tribemates can. Today, let me show you what the story’s about and how it highlights one of the most important golden calf idols of evangelicals: Biblical literalism.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Now, I want to show you why resurrections, as a concept, are so silly. Christians have never, ever, ever, ever demonstrated a single one of their miracle resurrection claims as true. Today, I’ll show you why they can’t, and why that matters.
