Reading Time: 9 minutes Something has to give, when it comes to panicking businesses in decline. They must pick something to cherish and do it right. Sometimes that’ll mean forging ahead with a new customer base they can actually please and which can actually support them as a business. Other times, it’ll mean taking extra-good care of their existing customers. And evangelicals haven’t yet figured out where to land there.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Today, I’ve got a little treat for us: a self-proclaimed apologist who has never met a logical fallacy he didn’t love on sight. Let’s go through his recent apologetics post and see which ones we can spot!
Reading Time: < 1 minute From the American Humanist Association: Following blatant promotion of Christian nationalism by the sheriff of Ohio County, KY, attorneys at the American Humanist Association are warning the publicly-funded office of future legal ramifications. On November 24, 2019, the office’s public Facebook page posted an explicitly Christian prayer, reading in full: “Gracious Father in heaven, we […]

Reading Time: < 1 minute Another press release from the American Humanist Association: Humanist and nontheist activists across Kentucky have joined with attorneys at the American Humanist Association in a warning letter following Governor Matthew Bevin’s (R) blatant Christian proselytization in a recent public video.

Reading Time: 12 minutes Ken Ham says that he totally thinks that families that do not already buy into Creationism will choose to spend their vacations at his park rather than at Disney World or the Smithsonian Institution–and from there become persuaded of his fringe religious beliefs. Shall we see together how likely that pipe dream is to become reality?
Reading Time: 7 minutes Australia, like most countries do, holds a census every so often to figure out how their population is changing over time. One of their census questions asks about respondents’ religious affiliation. And that is the beginning of a story that seems too weird to be true–a story that tells us one reason why the concept of church and state separation is so important.
Reading Time: 10 minutes I couldn’t help but notice a major shift in the tenor of how Christians are engaging with general culture in the wake of the Supreme Court case about equal marriage–and a new discussion emerging from the ashes of that decision. Today we’re going to talk about that shift and what that discussion is, and what that discussion is leading toward for them–and us.
Reading Time: 9 minutes Last time I talked about a recent conference held at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. At the time I was concentrating more on a speech given there by Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) leader Al Mohler regarding reparative therapy. Today I want to delve more deeply into the errors of the conference itself because I think it serves as a firm declaration by evangelicals that despite being consistently defeated in every single way imaginable, they still aren’t ready to give up on the idea of bigotry-for-Jesus.
Reading Time: 9 minutes A few days ago, Al Mohler said something very important regarding the SBC’s stance on gay people. The news came and went fairly quietly, so much so that I barely even noticed it until today. But it’s still important.
