A snarky take on the American eclipse

A rundown of the conservative Christian insanity over the eclipse. If natural sights and wonders lead you to condemn others while you profit off your careers you have definitely taken a wrong turn (spiritually). Instead of navel-gazing, we need to see the obvious evil in the world today and seek to find ways to deal with it. Here’s a hint… there’s more evil in the White House, in our churches, and amongst the Trump supporters than there is up in the skies. Stop looking for up for answers and engage well with the problems of today. Hypocrisy may pay the bills for Christian leaders, but it steals your soul and has nothing to do with God’s kingdom.

A snarky take on Charlottesville, VA

White nationalists and counter-protesters gathered in Charlottesville, Virginia. Violence ensued. How should people of faith respond to racism in America? We’ll talk through 10 every way days we allow racism to still happen. We live in a crazy world and sanity, humanity and compassion should drive us forward into the future. Hopefully.

A snarky take on the antisocial, personality disorder that plagues the church

A rundown of the sociopathic nature of the American church. Let’s talk about Franklin Graham’s man crush with Putin and the rest of the crazy. The Christian church has lost its way and there’s nothing right with the right. So what should be done now? How do we fix this disorder that plagues faith?

A snarky take on the bumpy road of faith.

A rundown of the journey in and out of faith with Max. Max was raised in the Orthodox community of Riverdale in the Bronx. Buckle up as we talk about that tenuous road of faith that is seldom gets talked about. That idyllic path of belief and faith is rarely a simple, straight path. There’s a part of Max’s story that speaks to all of us.

How to Fix the Crazy

A snarky take on Christianity’s Trump problem

A rundown of what you need to do to stay sane in the face of a crazy world. Yes, the world is nuts, our President is crazy, but so is the American Church. Join the conversation about why our Americanized version of advocacy makes no sense. Whether we’re talking about religion or politics, the answer to crazy is finding places where you can invest yourself in places that actually matter. Social media advocacy has no place unless you’re willing to step into the messiness of life. Change only happens when we invest deeply. Anything else is just self-indulgent narcissism. So get off your ass and do something.

Easter Doom!

A snarky alternative take on Easter

A rundown of why Easter should be a paradigm for the American Church. Something needs to die so it can be reborn. We are stuck within such an institution of crazy and power grabbing that we’ve fallen miles away from our original mission. We need demolition and death before we can be thrust the church into resurrection. So let’s exit the crazy, hypocritical, greedy, hateful, narcissistic Christianity that has become the norm of the American Church. If Easter tells us anything, we need death to move towards life. So let’s leave behind the crazy of the American church and look towards something new.

Why Creation Care Matters

A snarky take on creation care

Why should creation care matter to Christianity? Join us for part two of our talk with activist and author, Matthew Sleeth as we talk about why care for the environment is an essential ethic woven through scripture. Sleeth talks about how engaging in activities from gardening to environmental activism can connect us to the Creator. Creation care is a beautiful spiritual discipline that has long been lost in many Christian circles and one that the religious-right is downright antagonistic against. But there is always hope for renewal.

And there’s always What’s Good // What’s Bad chronicling the interweb’s best and worst along with a little never-ending,  Neverending Story treat (for the children of the 80’s).

What’s Good // What’s Bad

Share on TumblrTweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditShare on Google+Share on LinkedInShare on FacebookPin on PinterestShare on StumbleUponDigg thisEmail this to someonePrint this page
This weekly feature gives you the best of what’s good and what’s bad out there in the snarkiverse. This content is explored more in-depth on our weekly radio show, Snarky Faith, so you should check that out too. Without further adieu… here’s your rundown this week of the good, bad and ugly of the interwebs. Enjoy!

•  First, Christians didn’t want to bake wedding cakes for LGBTQ couples, but now a right-wing pastor, Lance Wallnau, is claiming that an ‘anointed cake’ freed a man from homosexuality. What’s next, donuts that cure heresy? Wait, I may need a dozen of those. Either way, this is Pat Robertson level craaaaazy. [JMG]

• An Alabama church wants to have their own armed police force. I thought the Bible was supposed to be the sword of the spirit, but apparently, someone’s been watching a little too much John Wick. This is what happens when the non-violent Jesus isn’t sexy enough and the church feels that all of this trusting in God business is way easier when you’re packing heat. Who would Jesus Shoot – WWJS [Huff Po]

• Enough of all the bad, want to hear a story about how the government is actually working together to make a positive change? Full Frontal with Samantha Bee aired a segment about the passing of a bill that will allow thousands of rape kits to be tested. This renewed my faith (briefly) in humanity and government.

•  We’ve got Nerf darts all over our house, but I’ve never once picked one up and thought, “I bet this can break the sound barrier.” Apparently, I was wrong. So much for being soft and safe.  [Uproxx]
