Hacker Hates This Blog

If you all came on my blog yesterday you noticed there was a nasty virus trying to entice you to click on it. This is the second time this same virus has pestered my blog. Just a note – if you ever see anything like that, DON’T CLICK IT! Thank God my awesome blog guy, [Read More…]

“Fallout” from Q

I posted my full talk here from Q. Although the response on my blog (and many other sites) has been overwhelmingly positive, there have been just as many harsh words written about what I said. I knew this would happen (duh!), but it’s so ironic to me that many of the people writing that crap about [Read More…]

Getting Attacked is like Riding a Bike

Yep, that’s what I feel it’s like. Let’s be honest, I’ve been on a really good run recently with great reviews/conversations/interviews/commentaries/mentions/quotes/etc about my book and work. I’m not naive enough to think this will continue forever.    And it hasn’t. And recently, it really hasn’t. But here’s what I’ve realized through this recent wave of [Read More…]

A Whole General Session Devoted to “Exposing” Me

This video is from a recent United Kingdom Anglican Conference that occurred last week. One of their main stage sessions was titled: Evaluating the “Love is all you need” approach of Andrew Marin Yep, that’s right … they had a whole General Session on me, how I live my life, my book, and my theological [Read More…]

Part 6: United Kingdom

You’ve already mentioned some conservative concerns about your approach and your response to them but, given the debates in the Church of England, the wider Anglican Communion and other denominations, what do you say to those who are concerned you are undermining a traditional conservative stance on this topic? I do not hide the fact [Read More…]

I Blocked Someone Today

This morning was the first time that I have ever blocked someone making comments. I had previously warned her three times publicly, and many other commenters have done the same. I have warned her about her comment length, the aggressiveness in which she comments and the blatant scape-goating that is always present. Here are a [Read More…]

What Did You Say?

Earlier this year I got to meet a very well known New York Times Bestselling author who is a Christian, published by a Christian publishing house, who writes about Christian themes. I’ve sat on this post for some time because I wasn’t sure what to do with this information. I was going to call him out [Read More…]

Part 2 – “who put YOU in Charge?”

Here are points 3-5 in answering yesterday’s question, “Who put YOU in charge?” 3. There is no other national voice doing or saying what I am. This is not to say that there are not other people around the country talking about this topic! I am not being cocky with this statement. There are plenty [Read More…]

Part 1 – “who put YOU in charge?”

In light of the last few posts and the string of passionate comments in those posts, I want to talk about a question I get asked a lot: “Who put YOU in charge?” Sometimes I get that in a completely sarcastic tone, sometimes an angry tone, sometimes it’s just a genuine query. I’ve never really [Read More…]

The Best Advice I Have Ever Been Given

I love reading interviews, especially when the person being interviewed is asked, “What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?” because I’m fascinated by the words that stick with a person for a lifetime. Unfortunately for me, I’ve never been able to answer that question because no clever words of wisdom have ever really [Read More…]

I Heart Haters (Or at least I try)

So I guess I couldn’t just go off quietly into the holidays now that I actually have some free time post-book editing. I’ll post about that in the upcoming days, but let me just tell you I went on a couple 60 hour stretches where I only got anywhere from 2-4 hours per sleep per [Read More…]
