Pat Robertson’s Women Warriors Leading Spiritual Warfare In Zimbabwe

…, 49-year-old real estate broker and grandmother, wipes the feet dry and kisses them. At the heart of this women’s conference is the concept of “spiritual warfare,” the idea that God has anointed his “generals” to defeat Satan and bring the world to Christ. During this pre-conference prayer session, the group prays for a “mega-breakthrough” and for God to “take down the enemy.” It’s not a war of flesh and blood, conference speakers are quick to po…

And at…

Sacrifice

…the three I mentioned before: ihram, sa’iy and tawwaf, (sacred posture/dress, walk-run between Safa and Marwa, and circumambulate around the Ka’aba). After performing these for umrah, with the umrah/ hajj tamattu’, I can clip a bit of my hair, (or the men can shave) and then end my ihram, returning to “regular clothes”. As I said, I do plan to take this break (even if I make a second umrah). I mean I am hoping to stay in the spirit of place witho…

Pretty Girls Like Trap Church: A Movement at 2 Chainz’s Atlanta Pink House

Last week in Atlanta, Georgia, an unassuming house on 1530 Howell Mill Road that had been painted bright pink in promotion of rapper 2 Chainz’s latest album, “Pretty Girls Like Trap Music,” was whitewashed back to its original eggshell hue. For the past several weeks, the Pink Trap House installation had been a lot of things to different people.

#VanillaISIS, White Tears and the Adventures of Captain Moroni

…followers are Mormons, including a “Captain Moroni” (recalling, as Jana Riess reminds us, the “military stud muffin of the Book of Mormon”). The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has officially condemned their efforts while maintaining that the standoff is “not a Church matter.” Most major news outlets and current events blogs have commented on the Bundys’ Mormonism, but we should attend to how these sources are commenting. I’ve written…

The Battle for the Meaning of Religious Freedom Day

…the history of the world. The Project Blitz manuals have been clear that passing legislation based on their models—whether it be posting In God We Trust in public schools and government buildings, or resolutions commemorating everything from Religious Freedom Day to Christmas—is intended to become easier as they systematically build political momentum toward more controversial legislation, like religious exemptions from providing health care to LG…

Pseudo-Historian David Barton in the Times and on The Daily Show

…tewart on the Daily Show (video below, after the jump). Barton’s slipperiness was evident in both, though only Stewart seemed plainly frustrated by it. Those of us who write about Barton have been busily dissecting his appearances and Right Wing Watch has posted a great multipart analysis here. Rather than explore the disagreements between the “self taught historian” and “professional historians” who “dismiss Mr. Barton, whose academic degree is i…

Forgiveness

…ever be as funny as he, so you’ll have to take my word for it. Still the lesson was learned, we are not meant to sleep away the pangs of the difficult fast. In fact, that is part of this arduous act of devotion and to sleep it away is a contradiction. He made me reflect on the topic I had already chosen for today: forgiveness.
