The Siren Song of Yesteryears: 1950 Called, They Want Their Values Back Ah, the “good old days.” You know, that fairy-tale epoch when kids respected their elders, everyone went to church, and Christian values were the compass guiding America’s moral ship. It’s a narrative as touching as it is fictitious. Don’t forget—these were also the days of segregation, rampant misogyny, and ‘duck and cover’ drills. Yet, the nostalgia junkies would have you believe this was a golden era of Christian... Read more

The Forehands: Not Your Typical Spiritual Guides Let’s get one thing straight: Karl and Laura Forehand aren’t here to sell you the same old, tired spiritual clichés. Nope, they’re here to wrestle—wrestle with beliefs, wrestle with trauma, and maybe even wrestle with you a bit. So, buckle up, because this episode of Snarky Faith is about to get real. Deconstruction: More Than Just a Buzzword Ah, deconstruction—the buzzword that’s been making the rounds in spiritual circles faster than you can... Read more

Intro to Narcissism 101: Meet Your Self-Obsessed Spiritual ‘Leader’ Before you can dodge a bullet, you’ve got to know it’s coming. So let’s sketch out our villain: the narcissistic pastor. A charisma factory built on a foundation of self-obsession and emotional manipulation. Imagine a spiritual leader more concerned with collecting “Amens” than saving souls. Narcissistic pastors are not accidents; they’re products of a church system that practically rolls out the red carpet for them. The church environment often prioritizes charisma... Read more

The Never-Ending Cycle of Abuse: The Magical Reappearance Trick Christianity has a knack for resurrecting careers that should be as dead as Lazarus pre-miracle. It’s like a magic trick, only the rabbit pulled out of the hat is an abusive pastor. The routine is old but somehow still gets applause: a scandal erupts, the leader puts on a public performance worthy of an Oscar—complete with insincere sobbing and rehearsed humility—and poof! After a “season of healing,” they’re back, front and... Read more

So, NASA dropped a report on Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAPs), and the world went nuts. Finally, the eggheads are going to tell us if E.T. is phoning home, right? Wrong. Turns out, the report is a masterclass in how to say a lot while revealing very little—kind of like that pastor who can preach for an hour and still not get to the point. But hey, it’s NASA; they must know what they’re talking about, right? Well, let’s pump the... Read more

The Jimmy Fallon Paradox: A Public Persona vs. Private Reality We’ve all heard the recent buzz about Jimmy Fallon’s toxic workplace allegations. The guy who’s been making America laugh every night apparently isn’t as jovial behind the scenes. This got me thinking—doesn’t this sound eerily similar to the dynamics we often see in churches? Pastors who are charismatic in the pulpit but tyrants in the boardroom. It’s like they’re playing a role, and once the cameras are off, the mask... Read more

Ah, Sunday mornings. You could be in two places: a church with stained glass windows illuminating verses you’ve heard a hundred times or a bustling convention center where adults dress up like Marvel superheroes and no one’s judging—well unless your cosplay game is weak. Comic-Con and church, two institutions as different as the Pope and Deadpool, and yet, strangely similar. Both have devoted followings, iconic figures, and the strange ritual of dress-up. But before you say, “Hallelujah, they’re the same!”—hold... Read more

9/11, the day that stopped the clock on American innocence and set us on a path of “righteous” retaliation. Sure, this Sunday, churches all over America will lower their flags, hum ‘God Bless America,’ and hold those signature moments of silence. It’s theatrical patriotism at its best, but let’s not kid ourselves—this isn’t a Christian reaction, this is a political one. Before we get lost in the ceremony, let’s remember that Christ was the guy who told us, “Put your... Read more

Hey, Snarky Faith fam! If you’re looking for a book that will shake up your spiritual world, look no further than Seeds of De(con)struction by Nat Turney. This isn’t just another faith book; it’s a spiritual manifesto that challenges, enlightens, and uplifts. Let’s dive in, shall we?
