…dia. Conjectures piled up upon assumptions, and thousands of writers were looking forward to a sleepless night of encyclical reading followed by the bleary-eyed composition of hot takes and appearances on talk shows and radio on the morning of June 18, when the Vatican officially released it to the world.

Is Proselytizing Ever Okay? Are We All Proselytizing All The Time?

…e the church is apparently immaterial to Kristian, and I probably couldn’t come up with a more obvious example of unexamined Christian privilege if I tried. I’ll also just note in passing that justifying a practice on the basis of its being “very old”—the appeal to tradition—is a logical fallacy. The cruel practice of slavery is “very old,” but very few people are willing to openly argue for its validity today. In any case, the occasion for Kristi…

Republican Lauren Boebert Jokes About AR-15s and Jesus — And Yes, She’s a ‘Real’ Christian

In the aftermath of the Buffalo and Uvalde shootings—and the 54 mass shootings (and counting) that have happened since—America’s right-wing Christians have been busy defending their “god-given” right to own AR-15s.
