Please pay attention to my friend Brandon Robertson--and pray that this young evangelical leader is the future of American religion. Watch him defend gay rights on this MSNBC clip. The days of the bigots at Christianity Today magazine, who's editor wrote to President Obama demanding the "religious liberty right" to discriminate against gay men and women, are numbered. The future is with the young evangelicals who are actually following Jesus, not the bigots.Frank Schaeffer is a wr … [Read more...]

Christianity Today is scared of Peggy, Tony and Bart Campolo (and me) and wants to help evangelicals brainwash their children more effectively

Christianity Today is scared of Tony, Peggy and Bart Campolo and wants to help evangelicals brainwash their children more effectively so they won't turn out like Bart.The "method" is always the same. Bart isn't a Christian anymore so we need to blame his parents (while pretending not to) and improve the way we indoctrinate our kids lest they turn out like Bart or worse yet, like Frank Schaeffer.To do that the first thing we have to do is lie about them, dismiss the backsliders and make … [Read more...]

Gordon College Expels Dietrich Bonhoeffer Because He’s Gay — Christianity Today Magazine Won’t Hire Him Either…

"Gordon College Expels Dietrich Bonhoeffer Because He’s Gay -- Christianity Today Magazine Won’t Hire Him Either!" is a headline that would have been insane but understandable in Germany in 1939. Does it make sense in America of 2014?A few weeks ago I met the president of Gordon College. We both happened to be attending a reading by Charles Marsh (Commonwealth Professor of Religious Studies at the University of Virginia) from his new book Strange Glory: A Life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. The even … [Read more...]

Dietrich Bonhoeffer Was Flamingly Gay– Deal With It

Evangelical icon and martyr Dietrich Bonhoeffer is arguably the greatest moral giant to emerge from the German resistance to Hitler. He was a brilliant theologian, an evangelical Christian and flamingly gay. He'd be denounced today by people like Sarah Palin and Franklin Graham as unequivocally hell-bound.If Bonhoeffer is in hell because he fell in love with a man--at least in "hell" as it is imagined by American evangelicals -- he's there with the Jews who were gassed in spite of his best … [Read more...]

The Only Difference between the Late Fred Phelps and the Evangelical Establishment (Not to Mention Christianity Today Magazine) is that Fred had the Guts to Act on His Evangelical Convictions

Fred Phelps is dead. There’s only one interesting thing about Phelps: He was the mirror that respectable evangelicals hated to look into. The only difference between Fred and, say, the editors of Christianity Today magazine, is that Fred was really, really rude, made less money and got arrested more often. But in the essentials of his Calvinist evangelical theology, Fred was a good mainstream evangelical.If you believe in Calvinist theology -- Phelps stated that he held to all of the Five P … [Read more...]

Frank Schaeffer On Francis Schaeffer, Os Guinness, L’Abri Fellowship and the Evangelicals

Who were Francis and Edith Schaeffer really? Why did Os Guinness slam me personally in Christianity Today magazine for writing a book about growing up in L'Abri Fellowship and my take on the evangelicals? Here's my interview that sets the record straight as to my parents legacy and the failure of the evangelical world to understand who they were.Note: My new book on faith, life and freedom in Christ will be published May 15. Print and E-books all formats on Amazon  WHY I’M AN ATHEIST WHO BEL … [Read more...]

Do Evangelical Leaders Really Believe Their Own BS?

Let’s be honest. Sure some smart young people who “come to Christ” are deeply sincere. Then life happens to them and they come to see that nothing is quite as true as it was cracked up to be that night they got "saved." Then they have a choice: stick with the program, because that’s how they earn their living and/or they now are known as “Christians” so backing down is hard since their identity is on the line-- or bail.Some bail. They lose jobs, friends and family. Most who don't bail and sti … [Read more...]

Within 10 Years You’ll See Articles Supporting Gay Marriage in Christianity Today Magazine

 I’ll make a prediction: within 10 years or less mainstream evangelicals like the editors of Christianity Today magazine (and whomever/whatever is running the Billy Graham empire et al) will “come around” on issues like gay marriage equality, choice for women and premarital sex. They’ll suddenly find they're really, really pro-immigration too!They won’t do this out of the goodness of their hearts, let alone on moral grounds, but because these folks can’t figure out any other way to e … [Read more...]
