An excerpt from this issue’s Letter from the Editor: 

Maybe there were some nice things in our little Christian world—and I mean nice things, but when we look back at it, we’re all such morons and we get sidetracked with the crummy parts.

That’s the thing with nostalgia, it’s basically always an illusion. You’re never actually longing for some forgotten experience, you’re longing for what you remember it as. And every time you feel nostalgic for something, there’s a good chance you’re going to alter that memory of itby remembering it, according to “Science.” Pretty soon you find yourself wistfully longing for a yesteryear that never was.

    Is the article about Jennifer Knapp expressing approval of the lifestyle she’s chosen since initially breaking out as a Christian music star?

    By the way, I actually contend that Veggie Tales has been short-changed a bit in the rush to sweep Christian culture back under the rug (and believe me, some of it needs to be swept under that rug ASAP). It had quite a few good qualities, even artistic ones. Certainly more creative than Thomas Kinkade. You can read my little apology if you google “In Defense of VeggieTales.”

    I think our position on homosexuality as sin has been pretty clear.

    Your staff covers a bit of a range politically and some articles have been clearer than others. But I’m glad to hear it.
