College Humor Tackles the Question ‘Is God Made Up?’

The folks at College Humor have answered the question: “Is God Made Up?” And you won’t believe it: the website that mocks everything in sight found a way to mock religion…

How Do You Survive a Christian College When You’ve Lost Your Faith?

Education writer Jon Fortenbury interviewed a student who lost his faith while in the middle of his undergraduate education at a Christian college — and offers a few tips for other students who may find themselves in similar situations:
