Here's an excerpt.Blessed Are Those Who MournAn Excerpt from ALOOF: Figuring Out Life with a GOD Who HIDES By Tony KrizWe religious folks work very hard to try and conjure up God’s presence. We will do about anything we can to infuse enough God-feeling into an event to get people to show up. W … [Read more...]

The Religious-Right’s Genius For Picking “Winners” : Are the New Atheists Paying Evangelical leaders like Franklin Graham & Mike Huckabee To Make Jesus Look Stupid?

So here's my question: Are the so-called New Atheists paying evangelical leaders like Franklin Graham, Mike Huckabee and D. Michael Lindsay to make Jesus look stupid? Or as I write in my new book WHY I AM AN ATHEIST WHO BELIEVES IN GOD: How to give love, create beauty and find peace (Chapter 9, page, 45): Sam likes to call me out of the blue and casually mention the latest dumb stunt perpetrated by the Religious Right, the Roman Catholic bishops or the Republican Party, as if I have anything to … [Read more...]

Daily Kos Wed Jan 14, 2015 at 10:56 PM PSTLetting God Out of the Box by metalnunFollow for metalnunReflections on Frank Schaeffer’s “Why I am an Atheist Who Believes in God - How to give love, create beauty and find peace.”I wanted to write a formal “review” of this book, but initially couldn’t think of anything to say other than, “Fabulous book!  Everybody should read it.”  On second thought, while I absolutely LOVE the book, I predict that most atheists and C … [Read more...]

Does church help you to become the sort of person you’d pick to be stuck on a desert island with?

When I first joined the Greek Orthodox Church in 1990 I argued the finer points of theology and church history with my long-suffering evangelical mother and sisters.
