  There’s an ongoing joke among the Evangelical circles I’ve associated with regarding Bible college that says, “Ring by spring or your money back!” Though the ‘money back’ part isn’t exactly true, there an underlying, not-so-subtle expectation among Christian young adults that they might happen to meet their significant other while attending Bible college. The expectations vary among individuals, and it would be disingenuous of me to say that every Christian goes to Bible college specifically to get married. Many Christians… Read more

Christians all over the world unanimously agree that the books of the Bible are divinely inspired by God. But between Protestants, Catholics and Orthodox Christians, there is much disagreement in which books are considered to be inspired. While they all contain 27 books in their New Testament, they vary in how many books are included in their Old Testament canons. While the Protestant bible contains 66 books in total, the Catholic bible has 73 books as well as additional passages… Read more

***SATIRE*** Well, it happened. Catholics all over North America have had enough of that Francis-guy and pushed the Vatican to hold another conclave in a rush to choose the next Pope. But as it turns out, it wasn’t someone anyone had expected. As smoke billowed from the chimney of St. Peter’s Basilica, the sky darkened and the sound of roaring guitars, wailing drums and piercing synthesizers could be heard resonating behind the Vatican City walls. The new (un)holy father happens… Read more

***SATIRE*** Calvin Wesley, a Bible-believing follower of Christ and devout Protestant, was on his way to Winnipeg, Manitoba to visit friends and relatives for the holidays. Typically he would fly to and from his hometown in Vancouver, British Columbia since the short flight, though more expensive, just made much more sense timewise. But due to unprecedented flight restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, he decided to make the 24-hour road trip for the first time. Little did he realize his… Read more

From a non-Catholic Christian perspective, anything to do with giving honor or veneration to the Virgin Mary or saints can be quite intimidating. The first thing that usually comes to mind is the first of the Ten Commandments, “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before. You shall not make for yourself a graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that… Read more

***SATIRE*** On a livestream episode of The Vortex, viewers were greeted with an unprecedented surprise. The signature bass-driven intro jingle suddenly had a slightly different, yet familiar, sound. Most of the crew at Church Militant thought nothing of it in the moment. But as it turns out, the techs in the sound engineering accidentally played the wrong music track — which turned out to be the intro theme music from the popular 90’s comedy television series Seinfeld. Michael Voris, host… Read more

***SATIRE*** It’s not everyday a modern pope makes such a bold statement on something as simple as a drink. But it appears Benedict XVI has felt the spiritual calling to set the record straight. The Pope Emeritus has come out of retirement and assumed the papal chair while reading a letter of exhortation titled, “Capulus est Vita,” which translates in English, “COFFEE IS LIFE.” A Vatican spokesperson states, “Papal infallibility is like that really amazing tool you’ve bought from the… Read more

I’ve been a longtime admirer of Pope John Paul II even during my Evangelical years. The recently released report on former Cardinal Thomas McCarrick may shake other admirers as it has revealed that he (among others) was complicit in enabling Cardinal McCarrick (an accused sexual deviant and abuser) to rise up in the Church hierarchy. Some believe JPII’s experiences with communist smear campaigns against the Church in Poland that involved false accusations of clerical sexual abuse have influenced him to believe… Read more

***SATIRE*** Well, the 2020 U.S. Election has taken an unexpected turn for many Republican supporters, but some have not thrown in the towel yet. In light of Trump taking legal action over the possibility of fraudulent votes given to Democrat Joe Biden, many Republican supporters are adamant that the election is far from over. “This election was stolen!” shouts an outspoken Brude O. Viepürz, who happens to identify as a die-hard Republican-voting Protestant. “It was foretold that the man of… Read more

***SATIRE*** Archbishop Vigano is no stranger to controversy. He is most widely known for calling out Pope Francis for negligible church leadership. Little did everyone know that Vigano is also an avid rock musician walking around in clerical garments. Turns out the veteran Catholic cleric has been former Genesis drummer and vocalist Phil Collins this whole time. Now everyone can see his true colors shining through. After enjoying the success of being one of the biggest pop-rock artists throughout the… Read more
