End-Times Watcher Sees Satan in an Energy Drink

…ter in the Hebrew alphabet and has the numerical value of six. Therefore, according to Weick, Vav Vav Vav is 666—the infamous number of the Beast. The 666 theory does not, drinkers of Monster will be glad to hear, hold up. Here is the relevant passage from Revelation 13:18: “let anyone with understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a person. Its number is six hundred and sixty-six.” The author of Revelation meant tha…

Believing in Johnny Cash: An Open Letter to Atheists

…y September 12 since he died, I think of him. Few musicians have been as successful as Johnny Cash. In a career-spanning six decades, he became more than a household name; he became a legend.  What was behind this success? It wasn’t his skill as a musician, or his music industry savvy. It wasn’t even his voice—although few voices can match Cash’s for emotional authority. I would argue that it was the stories he told. More to the point, it was his…

If Bad-Ass Nuns Ruled the World

…me people off here. I don’t shy away from the fact that I think the Catholic Church’s current stance on women is absolutely terrible. It is antiquated and frankly misogynistic that women can’t be priests in this day and age and I am very upfront about calling out Pope Francis on that fact in the introduction. That said, I don’t want that controversy to take anything away from the women’s stories here. At the end of the day this is really about the…

Gay Republicans Question Conservative Credentials

…e “gay community” gets special carve-outs. They oppose the Death Tax, but according to their own website they oppose it because it “discriminates against gay and lesbian couples for whom there is no marital exemption.” They opposed the health care bill, and again according to their own website, because it “does indeed discriminate against gay families.” Which is sort of a strange complaint since Perkins and the religious right oppose or support la…

The Older You Are, The More Likely You’ll Marry Outside Your Religion

…despread secularization and assimilation in the US to evangelicals who are concerned about “missionary dating” (I promise it’s not dirty), many religious communities are trying to figure out how to enjoy the great religious tolerance of America, while at the same time preserving their religious traditions and the strength of marriage. What’s the most important take-home message for readers? I think the most important finding from my 2,500 person n…

Rethinking a Classic from the Conservative Contraception Canon

…me and do it over again… well, I can’t even finish that sentence without succumbing to a churning stomach and a desire to just get away, run out of the room, go absolutely ANYWHERE else, do anything to keep 2003-2004 from ever, ever coming back. I love my son, but I would claw at the eyes of 2003 and 2004, if years had eyes and they were chasing me. I’d whack them across the kneecaps with a fireplace poker, if years had knees and they were trying…

Why Tony Campolo’s LGBTQ Reversal is Evangelicalism’s Tipping Point

…han Graham. While he generally eschews partisan politics (save for his unsuccessful run for Congress as an antiwar Democrat in 1976), particularly in the life of the church, unlike Graham, Campolo is an unapologetic progressive and long-time critic of the so-called “Religious Right.” “What scares me is that Christianity in America today sees nothing wrong with being allied with political conservatism,” he told The Progressive magazine 10 years ago…
