11 Election Tweets to Amuse, Infuriate, Enlighten, and Amuse You

An uncomfortable number of hosts and guests on MSNBC’s election night coverage made reference to hitting the bottle. Even the Clinton era made a ghostly appearance in the form of James Carville who Zoomed in from home with a half-empty bottle of Pappy Van Winkle over his shoulder. We get it. But besides getting likkered up, what have we done with all this anxiety and nervous energy? Brought it to Twitter of course. There were far too many insight…

Reuters’ Sarah N. Lynch broke a big story on Monday morning highlighting one of the more outrageous examples of the Trump administration’s penchant for rewarding supporters and punishing opponents: A U.S. Justice Department anti-human trafficking grant program is facing internal complaints, after two nonprofits were denied funding in favor of two less established groups whose applications were not recommended by career DOJ officials. The groups i…

Encyclileaks: Was the ‘Laudato Si’ Leak a Sin or Just a Scoop?

In the days before the release of Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment, Laudauto Si, the level of hype among the Catholic journalists and religion writers on my Twitter feed approached Star Wars levels with astonishing rapidity. A papal encyclical arguably hadn’t been the subject of this much conjecture since Humanae Vitae in 1968, far before the dawn of social media. Conjectures piled up upon assumptions, and thousands of writers were loo…

Evangelical Prof’s ‘Biblical Comma’ Tweet Exposes Paradox of ‘Respectable’ Evangelical Anti-Intellectualism

…ccasional contributor to Tim Keller’s The Gospel Coalition and a classic Calvinist theobro, is known to prefer the ESV translation of the Bible, which replaces the term “slave” with the essentially made up euphemism “bondservant.” In other words, this fan of the “unedited” Bible is aware of modern edits and prefers certain ones over others.

November 8th was, for so many of us, the death knell for any claim white evangelicals as a group had on caring for “the least of these.” It wasn’t a trickle, but a landslide of white evangelicals who helped to usher the real-life Biff Tannen to the seat of power. My social feeds have been full of expressions of disillusionment, like those of Yolanda Pierce and Brandi Miller here on RD. And indeed, as we see from the roundup of responses below, ev…

…e terrorist actions in their attempts to create their desired collective salvation. On January 6, 2021, it probably seemed to a number of participants and supporters in the Euro-American Nativist Millennial Movement that they had finally achieved the critical mass of adherents to overthrow Congress. There are many varieties of millennialism. As I wrote in The Oxford Handbook of Millennialism: “A nativist millennial movement consists of people who…

With respect to the latter, child marriage; female genital mutilation; sex education; medical neglect due to beliefs prescribing faith healing only; anti-LGBTQ conversion therapy; promotion of Christianity in public schools; and the lack of sensible regulation of homeschooling are all singled out for attention. As the report states, “unfortunately, but unsurprisingly…

2021 National Prayer Breakfast: A Kinder Gentler Christian Capitalism

…Stop the Steal” campaign until protestors stormed the Capitol on January 6, 2021. Furthermore, while the NPB remains largely Republican run, twelve current Democratic members of Congress signed off on using their names as “honorary” representatives and senators for this year’s breakfast. In his bestselling book, The Family, and the Netflix documentary of the same name, Sharlet detailed how by “introducing powerful men to Jesus, the Family has mana…
