How (and Why) Evangelicals Blow Their Witness With Single Moms

Reading Time: 7 minutes On Mother’s Day, I showed you a major evangelical news site that somehow missed an important story about the single moms in their churches who didn’t find motherhood through adoption. Instead, these women got their kids through unapproved sex or divorce, neither of which hardline evangelicals like much. Evangelical single moms really test evangelicals’ own marketing hype to the limits — and accidentally reveal exactly who evangelicals, as a group, truly are. Today, let me show you how evangelicals treat single moms — and why, and what their behavior says about them as a group.

Evangelicals’ Birthrate Strategies Reveal Very Dark Covert Goals

Reading Time: 7 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday, we checked out some evangelicals’ reactions to the pandemic-related declines in birthrates around the world.

It’s quite an interesting study, linking as it does two personality traits: the dark triad and virtue signaling.

Why White Evangelicals Are Freaking Out Lately

Reading Time: 12 minutes Of late, the news has been filled with stories of the most shocking and heartbreaking kinds regarding middle-aged white conservatives freaking completely out with over-the-top racist antics. Our entire culture feels like it’s teetering on the very ledge of some great and momentous (and necessary) changes. In reaction to it all, white evangelicals are completely, epically, totally, and absolutely losing their goddamned minds. Today, let me show you why.

Church Consultants: How (Not) to Fix Dying Churches

Reading Time: 7 minutes Hi and welcome back! Yesterday, we touched on the topic of church consultants. For the past 15 years or so that Christianity has been in decline in America, this field has exploded — in supply at least, though not really in demand.
