Yes, MLMs Are A Cult (LSP #71)

Reading Time: 7 minutes I saw a video lately about multi-level marketing schemes (MLMs) and their similarity to classic religious cults. I want to show you this idea in detail–and maybe offer some hope for those who love people who’ve gotten sucked into this predatory business model. Today, Lord Snow Presides over the weird similarity of cults and MLMs!

Hallelujah! Pat Robertson Has Heard from Jesus About Another Election!

Reading Time: 7 minutes For a group of people who really hate evolution, fundagelicals sure have evolved on their views of Donald Trump. And we’re not talking about micro-evolution, here. We’re talking about mega-huge macro-evolution. Except macro-evolution isn’t a thing, or so they say. Anyway, I was so struck by this story that I decided we needed to run a special off-day edition of Roll to Disbelieve.

Churn Rate: When They Are Grown, Apparently They DO Depart From It.

Reading Time: 11 minutes Back when I was Christian, there was one Bible verse considered to be the ultimate Christian parenting guide–one that, by itself, was all anybody needed to know when it came to raising children. I bet you already know which one I’m talking about! But it’s also one of the Bible’s many false promises. Today we’ll touch on the way this verse has changed meaning over the years, as well as why it gives Christians unnecessary frustration–and unwarranted confidence–in their future. And along the way, we’ll marvel together that it is one of Christianity’s biggest names who is giving us this insight today!

PRATTling in Christianese.

Reading Time: 12 minutes Quite a few Christians cherish and use these failed, long-debunked arguments–and they are not interested in abandoning them or even questioning them, much less in learning why they’re not effective. Today I want to talk about these shopworn, moth-eaten arguments: what they are, where they come from, and why Christians cling to them so much.

If Phil Robertson is a Christian’s Idea of Joyous, Then I’m Happy to Be Miserable

Reading Time: 10 minutes You know, it seems like very often one of the accusations that get hurled at non-Christians is that we are obviously very miserable and sad because we don’t have the “joy” that Christians feel. This accusation is usually news to us, since most of us are pretty happy without Christianity; I can attest that my own life became much happier once I discarded the indoctrination I labored under as a Christian. So today we’ll be talking about joy and happiness.
