Jesus Was A Rice Farmer In Japan?

    Well, I guess you really do learn something ridiculous new every day.

The Japanese Jesus Trail

By Duncan Bartlett, BBC News A Japanese legend claims that Jesus escaped Jerusalem and made his way to Aomori in Japan where he became a rice farmer. Christians say the story is nonsense. However, a monument there known as the Grave of Christ attracts curious visitors from all over the world. To...

Creationism Hall Of Fame Coming Soon To Kentucky

    Soon, very soon, Kentucky will officially be recognized as the Mecca of creationism. Ken Ham has his Creation Museum and soon he'll also have a Noah's ark themed water park. Well, it looks like there's a newcomer on the block who's looking to set up shop right between the two, turning rural Kentucky into the premier vacation destination for fundamentalist Christians everywhere.

Another creation science attraction plans Northern...

LGBT Group Cancels Protest Because Church Is ‘Too Nice’

    When I first read this article I thought it was some sort of parody. I honestly had to read through it several times just to make sure I wasn't missing the punchline somewhere. To my pleasant surprise this story is not a joke. Now, granted, the declaration that the protesters gave up because the church was "too nice" does come from the pastor, but, regardless, I hope more churches follow the lead of this one and learn to...

Bob Larson Casts Out Dustly The Demon

    This is a really disturbing video for a variety of reasons - mostly because it involves Bob Larson. But what I'm really curious about here isn't whether or not this woman was possessed by a demon, but rather how much did Larson charge to cast that "demon" out of her?

Do Mormons Have Something To Teach Us About Discipleship?

   

I love Mormons. As the quintessential example of American religion, they've always held a special place in my heart. They're wonderful people and (I mean this in the nicest way possible) their theological quirks entertain me to no end. So, naturally I tuned into Brian Williams' hosted NBC special on Mormonism last night. While it wasn't particularly enlightening, in that I didn't necessarily learn anything new...

Destroying Jesus With A Paintbrush

    This story is both funny and sad. It seems that the elderly woman who took this restoration project into her own hands had the best of intentions, but in her effort to recreate the image of Jesus she created a mess. If you ask me, there's a sermon here just waiting to be preached.
