Convergence Christians, Gay Cakes and Dental Drama (CultureCast)

eric-elnesOkay, who spiked the CultureCast punch with Aderall? These guys are all over the map today…hey look, shiny!

This week we dig around in the gray matter of Eric Elnes, pastor of the online faith community Darkwood Brew, author of the Phoenix Affirmations (and many other books), and most recently, prophet and advocate for what he calls “Convergence Christianity.” If’n you ain’t yet in the know about what exactly that is, read the twelve-point manifesto here.

Then we dive into Amy’s latest Fear of the Week: Dentists. Not the most original fear, but certainly understandable after he dentist took a file to her face as an experiment.

We touch base on the whole anti-gay cake baking drama in the Pacific Northwest and we have a little debate about who among us is the most humble (hint: we pretty much all lose that one).
