a snarky take on Christian power structures

Who doesn’t love a good dose of authoritarianism? We’ve seen Trump’s desire to rule without boundaries. We’ve seen it in Jerry Falwell Jr. and other Christian leaders exercise it. No one seems to like the idea of authoritarianism, but Christians continue to accept and embrace it in the local church. The church was never meant to be an exclusive club ruled by an iron fist and a Bible. It was also never meant to be run by tyrants called pastors, yet it happens every day from a majority of clergy in America. Do we have to stand for this? No. Let’s talk about how this happens and how to move past these little men that are drunk on imaginary power. It’s not the way the church was meant to be run or practiced.

The Evangelical Toilet

a snarky take on the demise of evangelicalism

Evangelical voters rejoiced when their Orange Messiah was elected. They continue to speak of his greatness in making America great again. All of this alining of faith and politics in a move for power has come at a cost. What does the future of the evangelical church look like? In this power grab, leaders have lost sight of their biblical mission and even more importantly, their congregations. Church attendance is declining during the Trump administration. A price must be paid, but will the evangelicals even care. They’re playing the short game, but the long game is leading them towards their own demise. Is it too soon to say that evangelicalism has officially gone down the toilet?

A snarky take on abuse of power

Absolute power corrupts absolutely. With the firestorm that has come out against a sexual predator, Harvey Weinstein, we take a look at how he’s no different than our commander and chief. Both are powerful men who abuse women. Is this any different in the church? Nope. Power corrupts here as well. With pastors acting as presidents overs their congregations, how can the church change to make sure the power plays and abuse don’t happen anymore? Tune in to find out more.

A snarky take on how to keep calm and carry on

Is sanity possible in this era of batshit-Christian-craziness and Trumpism? Yes, it is possible and essential if we want to stand against it.

Jesus and Guns

A snarky take on Christianity’s love of guns

With another mass shooting in America, what will it take to create real and lasting change in regards to gun control? Christianity’s love of God and guns seems to be intrinsically bound to one another in a messy American orgy of beliefs. How can followers of a pacifist Jesus justify their love of guns and violence? It’s akin to having both a wife and a mistress. You just need to make sure your belief systems don’t ever meet up. What can or should be done about gun? We’ll discuss exactly how to journey forward in the Christian chaos.

A snarky take on protesting

A rundown of Trump’s assault on the NFL and how that factors into American Christianity. Do we worship Jesus or worship the flag?

A snarky take on Christian advertising

A rundown of those cheesy, yellow, “Thank you Jesus” signs that you’re seeing in people’s yards around the country. What does it mean? Why do they exist? If you know the show, you’re certainly in a snarky ride to tear down this innocuous movement to spread Jesus through yard signs. I’d rather have a Jesus Yard Gnome. Join us for this look into how Christians would rather bumper sticker their faith instead of actually living it out.

A snarky take on Christian communication

In the wake of all of this religious division and Christian insanity – or Christinsanity (stop trying to make fetch happen!), I had a listener ask for advice on how to talk with people that didn’t believe the same way they did. Let’s talk about how to talk with people who don’t believe like you. If we can see the common humanity in the ‘other’ we can walk out our faith in a meaningful way. Being hateful and angry is so 2016. So how do you evangelize the right-leaning conservative Christian? Join us to find out how to talk to people.

A snarky take on on the flaccid state of the American church

A rundown of the travesty of Hurricane Harvey and the glaring lack of response from Lakewood Church, Houston’s (and one of American’s) biggest churches. While Joel Osteen hides away in his mansion thousands suffer. What should Christians do when their churches fall short? What happens when business-as-usual gets in the way of a mission. Hint: nothing good.
