A couple of months ago, I saw Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist) give a talk on how Christians co-opt just about everything in secular culture. For every great musician, or book, or movie… or fast food logo… there’s a Christian equivalent.
I got his point after a few examples. But then he kept giving more. And they didn’t stop coming. The message was clear: There’s no bit of pop culture too irrelevant to turn into a promotion of Jesus:
Pastor Says Florida School Board Should Say No to Atheist/Satanist Book Giveaways Since They’re Not “True Religions”
In a piece that’s light on facts and heavy on ignorance, Pastor Troy Schmidt writes that the Orange County School District should ban atheists and Satanists from distributing their books, but still allow Christians to give away Bibles.
He’s referring to the recent controversy where the district is considering banning all book distributions by outside groups because atheists want to participate and the Satanic Temple created coloring books for the occasion.
