How Billy Graham prepared the country for Donald Trump

photo religion.blogs.cnn.com photo www.nydailynews.comhoto,  Billy Graham, prepared the country for Donald Trump, as it were.

Is It Time to Dump the Word “Evangelical”?

According to Wikipedia “Evangelicalism is a worldwide Protestant movement, maintaining that the essence of the gospel consists in the doctrine of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ's atonement.” The truth is something else. Let me rephrase: Evangelicalism is a worldwide Protestant movement, maintaining the essence of personality cults consisting in the doctrine of profitable empire-building in order to control mentally damaged certainty addicts.As old Schaeffer family friend and once leading … [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!" 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'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...]
