American Jesus Madness – 1st Round Results

American Jesus Madness – 1st Round Results March 22, 2019

I think my favorite matchup this round was the United Methodists vs. United Methodists because the result to turned out to be eerily – sadly – close to real life.

On a more cheerful note, there are some upcoming matchups in the next round that I’m particularly looking forward to including Shane Claiborne vs. Jerry Falwell Jr.’s Love For Trump (another eerily resemblance to real life) and Jesus vs. Romans 13.

How those matchups will turn out is, as always, up to you.

So, check out the results below and the bracket challenge leaderboard below that, then head back here at 9am CST to start casting your votes for the Salacious 16 round!!
