Good solid pro-family evangelical Southern Baptists

Charlie Fuqua says he’s just reading the Bible like any good Christian should. And the Bible, he says, teaches that “God’s Law” should be American law. So Fuqua supports a biblical, pro-family agenda of outlawing abortion, reinstating school prayer, deporting all Muslim citizens, abolishing the minimum wage, and executing rebellious children and any prisoner not rehabilitated after two years.

When you tell them you still got to sell them

Christianity Today’s headline style is to capitalize all words. The headline style of the Baptist Press, on the other hand calls for them to capitalize only the first word, followed by lying nonsense pretending that contraception and abortion are the same thing. Yes, this contradicts scientific and medical fact and bears false witness against the HHS while gorging on the delusional, smug self-righteousness that comes from pretending everyone else is a Satanic baby-killer. But hey, that’s what the Baptist Press stylebook requires in a headline. [Read more…]

‘Identity that sends us toward the other with love’

Brian McLaren: “Our biggest problem, though, isn’t our differences. Our biggest problem is that we build identity — whatever our religion — we build identity by enforcing hostility toward the other. In other words, I learn who I am by learning who I’m against. I learn who I am by learning who’s against me.” [Read more…]

‘What is an evangelical?’ part 3,947 …

The word “evangelical” no longer belongs to the old mainstream of Christianity Today and Billy Graham and Wheaton College. Today that word belongs to people like Pat Robertson, Tony Perkins, James Dobson, Bryan Fischer, David Barton and Cindy Jacobs.

Culture warrior baffled by symbol with two short parallel lines

Being a culture-warrior means pretending you’ve never heard of equality: “When I moved to Washington I noticed these small blue stickers with two yellow lines permeating the city. They were on cars, t-shirts, and lamp posts. It wasn’t long before I Googled ‘blue sticker yellow lines’ and discovered it is the logo of the Human Rights Campaign.” [Read more…]

A documented case of false prophecy: Four years later, ‘Letter from 2012’ makes Focus on the Family look ridiculous

Before the 2008 election, Focus on the Family warned real, true Christians against voting for Barack Obama. The religious right group published a colorful “Letter From 2012 in Obama’s America.” It contained 34 specific predictions for what would become of America by October of 2012 (i.e., now). Libby Anne digs out a copy of that letter and examines each prediction. The result is hilarious and devastating. [Read more…]

The Bonfire: A big giant (but far from complete) list o’ Christian women bloggers

Here’s my big giant list o’ links from the other day in a more convenient form. This is not a list of the “top” Christian women bloggers, or the best, or the most popular. It’s just a list — no Billboard-style rankings — of those I’m aware of thus far. Please let me know of any names I’m missing here and I’ll add them to the list. [Read more…]
