An Opportunity for Grace in the Face of Hateful Protest

My wife, rev. Amy Piatt, bringing refreshments to protesters and comforting upset congregants.

There’s little in this world that gets me going more aggressively and quickly in life than someone yelling at or denigrating my wife. Yesterday, a pair of fire-breathing evangelists did both. Fortunately, my wife isn’t me. I was down the street preparing for a lecture I was doing this week. Rather than taking their emotional [Read More...]

Worst. Interview. Ever.

AJ and CDP

So I did this interview for “Not That Kind of Christian,” the new book I’m writing and trying to crowd fund. What a disaster. This is what happens when you’re not dealing with professionals.

Christian Panders, Fundies for Sanders, Bible Slanders (CultureCast)

NTKOC

The CultureCast crew took a few minutes away from enjoying their waning days of Portland sunlight to drop some tracks this week, straight from their mouth-parts to your ear-pieces.

Romal Tunes, Slim Moons and Kim Davis Swoons

romal tune

To be clear, cohost Slim Moon totally didn’t take his pants off and show his butt on air; it just worked for the title. But since it’s a podcast we could also be lying. On the anniversary of 9/11 the CultureCastaways reflect on fourteen years since the attack on the Twin Towers and what it’s [Read More...]
