Christian outlets seek to trash Obama with a decade-old interview

Reading Time: 2 minutes The opening paragraph in a Christianity Daily report dated April 5, 2022, report reads, “The former president’s religious beliefs were often shrouded in mystery, which is why one political commentator took it upon himself to do the research.” Despite referring to Obama as “the former president” the author, Olivia Cavallaro, would have known that the […]

Where Mark Driscoll’s Been Lately (LSP #80)

Reading Time: 7 minutes From the beginning, I figured Mark Driscoll began blogging to help bury his disgrace. When he arrived to Patheos, he prompted a tempest-in-a-teapot.

News from the World of Gozer. (Update Time!)

Reading Time: 7 minutes I’ve been reading a lot lately about the strange shift in right-wing Christians’ morality over the last ten years. As I read, I found myself wondering how that shift has applied in realtime to the various Christian leaders who’ve been caught misbehaving.

It’s 2017: How Did Charisma’s 2016 Prophecies Go?

Reading Time: 8 minutes Well, gang, it’s the beginning of a new year–which obviously means that all the Christian charlatans are coming out of the woodwork with their new crop of false prophecies! But wait, they haven’t even looked at their 2016 prophecies yet to see how accurate they were! Fine, fine–we’ll do that for them today, and I’ll even show you why Christians of a certain type really get into prophecy.
