It is in the moments of inner stillness that come from humility and unknowing that we can sense the presence of God

Only after we start to admit our addiction to certainty can we begin to actually benefit from our innate spiritual lives. Spirituality depends on humility. Humility begins with admitting how short life is, how little time we have, how small our knowledge will ever be about the so-called big questions. It is in the moments of inner stillness that come from humility and unknowing that we can sense the presence of God. Will you help me spread the word on my book that sets forth this vision? Will … [Read more...]

America is now an NRA wet dream– a racist nation of paranoid gun nuts losing our rights and watching our black brothers and sisters brutalized

PLEASE watch this video clip! Here's proof that we are a racist nation losing our civil rights while watching as our black brothers and sisters are brutalized. Yes, we are a racist nation. Period. There is a strong growing fascist movement building in the pro-gun, pro- law enforcement community. Post 9/11 we've become paranoid and deluded turning local cops into over-armed vigilantly storm troopers. America is now an NRA wet dream.Chris Hayes is a friend of mine. Watch this moving clip as he … [Read more...]

“This is what being raised in the southern Bible belt will do to you…If it is ok, I will share my head for the first time to anyone”

NOTE: If you come from an evangelical background and feel anguish you are not alone. Here's proof! I get 20-30 emails and FB messages a day from readers of my new book expressing anguish over their religious backgrounds. I answer all of them. I learn more from my readers than they learn from me. Here's one exchange I found very moving. (Printed here by permission, name changed.) Take hope. Sat, Aug 16, 2014 12:26 pmFrank: It is such a relief to get to share my head with someone. I am not … [Read more...]

How I Trashed Frank Schaeffer in my Novel as an American Hitler and Why He’s Promoting It: Guest BLOG by the Former Schaeffer Family Crossway Books Publicist

Katie sent me this essay about trashing me. It's good so I'm publishing it as a guest blog here. Also: I come out okay by the end! Back in the early 1980s as a very young woman Katie Andraski worked as a publicist in big time Christian publishing at Crossway Books. She did what few evangelical publicity people ever managed to do: Katie convinced editors at Newsweek, The New York Times, and the NBC "Today Show" to publicize the Schaeffer family as we emerged as leaders in the religious right. In t … [Read more...]

Church and State: The Role of Spirituality in Politics, Watch Frank Schaeffer’s UCLA/Hammer Museum Talk

  How did the religious right ensnare my family? I explored this at UCLA at a Hammer Museum talk I think you'll find interesting. Here's my journey from the Led Zeppelin to Ronald Reagan, from a kid in a mission to Congressman Jack Kemp's basement... Nepotism is the order of the day in evangelical circles...P.S. The host introduces me as "Dr. Schaeffer" that's not me! My son John always jokes with me when I go speak at places like the Harvard Kennedy School or Princeton … [Read more...]
