Benedict Cumberbatch sure knows how to spice up an evening. The star of Star Trek and Sherlock (related: when is a new season airing? It has been forevvvvvver) says that he went through a church-flashing phase while on a childhood summer trip to Greece:"I used to expose myself in front of religious places. I was a very hot, bored boy and was surrounded by people who were older than me who were goading me. So when they got bored or the football went through a stain-glassed window — not to be r … [Read more...]

Church Uses Image from ‘The Walking Dead’ to Promote Their Easter Services

walking-dead-church-ad

When you think Easter, you probably think of dyed eggs, bunny rabbits, and ... zombies? An unnamed church has used images from the TV show The Walking Dead to publicize its Easter services, along with the tag line "why look for the living among the dead?"As io9's Meredith Woerner points out, this could totally be fake, since there's no sign of which church it came from. That said, it's still pretty funny, and far from the worst appropriation of pop culture by a church trying to be cool … [Read more...]

Britney Spears may have broken up with her fiance Jason Trawick and quit/maybe got fired from The X Factor in the past few weeks, but she doesn't seem fazed. This weekend, she attended services at a church near her home in Westlake Village, California. I'm not sure what denomination the church is, but Britney was raised Baptist. Either way, what do we think about her church ensemble? I think the top is really cute, but the skirt's a miss. Hair looks great, though, and it's nice to see Britters … [Read more...]

Before she was a superstar, Fergie was a meth addict. The singer grew increasingly gaunt and paranoid and left the girl group she was part of at the time, Wild Orchid. One day, while high, she wandered into a church and then became convinced that the FBI was outside waiting to arrest her.

The Bates family, who started off as sidekicks to the Duggars on 19 Kids and Counting and then got a spinoff called United Bates of America, are copying the Duggars in another way: opening their own church. The Duggars have church services held at their home, which probably helps them get some kind of tax exemption. Bates family patriarch Gil Bates, however, will be a) preaching to people other than his own family members and b) holding services somewhere besides his own house. Wife Kelly Bates … [Read more...]

A Kardashian Kult Is More Realistic Than You Think

Nope - they already have one, and it's possibly the only family venture they're secretive about.Mom Kris Jenner has talked a lot about being a Christian and taking her kids to church.

mark-wahlberg-family-catholic

Remember when Mark Wahlberg was a rapper? And in that movie Fear? And had a reputation for being kind of a bruiser? Well, no more. The actor, who is starring in the new movie Ted, says that now that he's married to Rhea Durham and a father of four, he's not that cool anymore. "You'd be amazed with what you can do once you stop drinking and going out at night," he said in an interview. "Today I was up at 4.30 AM, played an hour and a half of basketball, then went upstairs. We got the kids out … [Read more...]
