do christians (h)ate the world? OR (the european civil wars)

    Any notion that we do not belong to this earth, that Earth is a fallen universe, a prison for our soul striving to liberate itself from the material inertia, is dismissed as life­ denying alienation.  -- Zizek Over the course of the last ten years, Hollywood has been producing plotline after plotline that somehow either claims the end of the world (apocalyptic; think 2012 ) or some sort of ecological crisis (the day after tomorrow). this addiction demonstrates to us not s … [Read more...]

God the Capitalist Meets Job and his Violent Loss of Materialism…

Is not Job the narrative about the conundrum of pain, suffering and loss? Is it not a query into the permanency of suffering found within the human condition, and how ultimately this 'thing' is something that is part of our experience that does give answers? What if resting within this story resides an anecdote of the suffering inherent within material wealth, excess and accumulation?When we encounter Job we are met with someone who is 'right in the eyes of the lord' or 'he had it going on' … [Read more...]

God is a [pro]stit[ut]e

Doctor Daniel Paul Schreber complains of the compulsive thinking that he is forced to endure, a process of "having to think continually," in opposition to "man's natural right of mental relaxation, of temporary rest from mental activity through thinking nothing." Never a moment in which not to think and feel. Machines within me, engines in hyperdrive, factories in constant overproduction. Bataille argues that nature and capitalism alike are driven not by scarcity, but by excess, a superabundance … [Read more...]

  Desire is the Desire of the Other - LacanLove your neighbour as yourself - JesusImagine a cupcake sitting on a table in front of you. The cream topped pastry tempts and haunts you with its delectable experience. Its voice beckons you: consume me. eat me, whole. in that moment the cupcake became your other. now, the other is that which has the ability [and most of the time does] tells you what you think, how you live, how you interpret reality, relationships and … [Read more...]

god (h)ates fa(g)s?!

 God hates fags, really? I have been told this is true. But what does God have against cigarettes? I mean, OK, maybe the carcinogenic properties probably aren't that healthy, but who doesn't have their addictions? Is this enough to merit people standing in the streets, making placards (using a full spectrum of variegated coloring, much like the "rainbow") and promoting violent behavior against smoking fags? I mean that is simply ludicrous.Why are so many people justifying their … [Read more...]

the c(h)urch is killing the (o)ther [Video]

INTRO: the other is that which is different to us. that which is foreign or even monstrous to us and our sensibilities. historically, the church has struggled not only to engage with the other, but also to allow the other to maintain that which makes them other. this video is about why that needs to change (Turn your speakers up!) Quote at the beginning of the Video:As opposed to the official feast, one might say that carnival celebrated temporary liberation from the … [Read more...]

why feminine castration is like church on sunday

The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath - Jesus, Rabbi from NazarethIs not defending Sunday as a day to meet with God simply re-instituting the temple in that it promises some sort of mystical experience in a specific time and place? The geographical implications also claim that God could then only be experienced in 'this' specific context. What we cannot do is assume that our geographic place has no bearing on who we are, what we believe and even why we believe it. Take for … [Read more...]

the boy who broke the law and lost his father…

 if there is anything revolutionary within christianity, it is everything that lies outside of it. meaning, that christianity at its best must be receptive to the 'trauma of the secular', rather than resist it (as it has historically).the anarchic kernel within christianity resides not in the creeds, not even in the bible itself, but rather in freud and lacan (or psychoanalysis). who, as people, resisted christianity (aka, conversion), however, in the present future their ghosts are … [Read more...]

Video: God is Falling Apart

This is a series I am working on (this video is a rough cut; sorry about the lighting!!) - we will be working on these with camera crews. But wanted to give you a taste. - It is a challenge to see the crucial necessity of theology to reinvent itself, work alongside other ideologies (politics, economics, philosophy and etc.) or it might not otherwise survive. Also, it is a challenge to see God in a completely different light - a G|od who is fragmented...website: … [Read more...]
