"All we have is our stories," writes novelist Schaeffer (Crazy for God, 2008, etc.) in this entertaining,energetic new memoir. He follows through on this point by filling his book with story after story, all told with the clarity and catchy pacing of a born raconteur.... An intriguing, readable memoir aimed squarely at the post-faith modern era." (KIRKUS Review) ***“Part of the impact here, admittedly, is a result of who Frank Schaeffer is and of the platform from which he writes. That … [Read more...]

 Please WATCH my 4 min "answer" (such as it is) to the Bernie Sanders cult, note-- NOT to Bernie, whom I respect but to some of his unhinged followers who are (seemingly) effectively working for Trump and Vladimir Putin.Politics is about paradox and imperfection, not various forms of Jesus Saves... Take it from me as an ex-fundamentalist: I know the stink of fundamentalist certainty addiction from the inside. Been there, done that!People who want everything will always get … [Read more...]

White Christian America sees Donald Trump as their modern Moses

 "White Christian America sees Donald Trump as their modern Moses" writes Steven Rosenfeld in an important AlterNet article: "Threatened to the Core by Fading Power and Demographics, White Christian America is Going All in on Trump."That’s the takeaway of pollsters who specialize in tracking religion and American life and were initially startled as Trump beat a handful of preachers or their sons in the early primaries, namely Scott Walker and Ted Cruz.

Trump: “defending American (white) Christians”

 Love her or hate her we know more about Hillary Clinton’s faith than about any political leader's faith since Billy Graham was kissing up to Nixon and praying with him in the oval office. This was before Kissinger took over that pray-with-Nixon task while Graham ran for the hills to cover his Nixon-endorsing butt after Watergate.Post-Nixon, Billy Graham told my dad (the late evangelical evangelist and religious right founder, Francis Schaeffer) that he'd sworn off politics, let alo … [Read more...]
