“Why I Hate Religion, But Love Jesus” – The False Dichotomy

My apologies for the long post, but I thought this video, which is quickly going viral, is in need of some thoughtful reflection. If you have Christian friends and you've been on Facebook in the past 48 hours, then chances are you've already seen it.

As of "press time" the video was already closing in on 1 million views on Facebook after having only been posted on Tuesday. No question about it that's impressive. Aesthetically...

Todd Bentley Cures Cancer With A Punch – Literally

If you were to punch someone in public it would normally be labled "assault". If you're Todd Bentley it's called "divine healing". Additionally, convulsing "vibrating" on the ground after you've been sucker punched in the chest having previously suffered a broken sternum and ribs would normally be cause to call the paramedics.

Extreme Faith

    Is your faith this extreme? Mine's not. I'm a terrible skier. I can stay up. It's the stopping that I struggle with. There's probably a spiritual lesson there, but I'm too concerned with not dying on the slopes to figure what it might be.

Furthermore, I would like to pass some of the...

‘Ain’t No Safe Way’ – A Song About Abstinence

      Sexuality is and always will be a "touchy" subject. Literally and metaphorically. Ask 10 people what they think healthy sexuality is and you'll probably get 10 different answers.

UFOs & Crop Circles Are The Demonic Result Of Abortion

    Go ahead. Think of something totally crazy about Jesus, the Bible, etc.; something nobody would ever believe. No matter how crazy or off the wall your imagination might get it will never surpass what is going on in William Tapley's noggin. First it was phallic imagery at the Denver International Airport. Now, it seems that Satan in the disguise of aliens and UFOs (as the result of the rise in abortions in the 1970s) is forming crop circles in...

The “New & Improved” Junior Christian Science Bible Lesson Show

    If you've spent much time on blogs like ours or Jesus Needs New PR or Christian Nightmares, then you've probably seen a video or two from the old cable access show Junior Christian Science Bible Lesson. If not, here's an example. It was sort of the quintessential corny/cheesy 90's Christian cable access show. Well, it seems that someone wasn't content to let sleeping dogs lie and felt they needed to bring back...
