    Thanks to the lazy/cheap shot mentioned earlier on Twitter (I assume the same one I saw, it implicated Karen S Prior for reasons that only makes sense in Very Online bubbles) I’m ordering Russell Moore’s book. I’m saying this as someone who was criticizing evangelicalism 30 years ago in my teens and reading Ron Sider long before it was cool. You don’t survive the church in the Clinton/Gingrich era without getting a little bit of a tough skin.

    Good on John Fea for noting that it’s not just the Christian Nationalists who cherry-pick history.

    Student Debt is a monster and to be fair I don’t think it’s sensible to ask an 18 y/o to fathom paying off an overpriced college for decades. The University tuition system is broken-by-design, and not just in the US. Yet I can’t imagine “Can’t Someone Else Do It?” is going to be a long-term answer.

    Yes, you saw the same cheap shot I did…
    I was glad for Fea’s piece…if anything, I’m more worried about how the far left is affecting academia than I am the far right…

    one thing to keep in mind is that, being the weaker sex, some women have become verry good liars. Don’t be tooo quick to reach a conclusion…..

    I’d have to challenge your statements on women…and if you’re referring to the article about James MacDonald…you have identified the wrong person as a serial liar…

    Thanks, I Thought so. I gave up on Twitter early last year and am absolutely not missing it. I keep an eye on a tiny handful of people (Beth Moore, you’re a saint; KSP, you too) but the site was otherwise a cesspool long before Elon bought it out. Things like this drove me away for good — the pointless sneering and double-separation turns normal people into raging fundies.

    Outside of a tiny number the right avoids academia, DeSantis or Moscow Idaho being exceptions. Instead they build their own alternate universes like PragerU or documentaries no one except the already converted watch. The far left seems to be taken more seriously by gatekeepers, facts and research be damned.

    I would beg to differ and say that women are the stronger of our species.

    “He predicts that many pastors in the future will have day jobs or side hustles to protect themselves — rather than because the church can’t afford to pay them a salary.”

    That was me, and now I’m incredibly thankful.

    Actually teaching what the Bible says has never been more counter- cultural…it’s just that today, one of the cultures it’s counter to is the churches …

  9. Michael says:

    I go into every service knowing that it could be my last because of what I am compelled to speak.
    So far, the grace and perseverance of my congregation has proved me wrong…

    How Jack Hibbs can say that anyone who does not believe the United States was founded as a Christian nation is “anti-faith” and “anti-founding fathers” and not comprehend that most of them were freemasons is a choice to idolize an idea to promote an agenda. He might as well say that Jesus was a white guy with long, straight, light brown hair and blue eyes. So many ughs. I so appreciate the Linkathons!

    Thank you, Kristi!

    yes, we bare children, clean toilets and budget. However, physically we don’t have the muscles or analytical ability that the other sex has. That is how it seems to me, anyway…….
