Will Samson find a match on OkCupid?
Will Samson find love?
Let’s find out!
This is Samson.
Samson is strong. Samson is very strong.
But Samson is lonely.
Samson opens an account on OkCupid.
This is what Samson’s profile says:
Hi! I'm Samson and I am a spiritual warrior and judge. I never drink, shave or cut my hair. Also, I can kill a lion with my bare hands. Seeking: A woman who understands me. Religious preference: Parents are hoping for a nice Jewish girl, but I'm open.
When I first had the idea of a Bad Theology series, I knew I wouldn’t lack for examples.
It’s just that… well… shoot. I wish it wasn’t so gosh-darned easy.
This was found on Facebook last week. As in, the week before Easter. Holy Week.
I’ve skipped a couple weeks of Bad Theology posts. Did you notice?
It wasn’t that I wasn’t finding plenty examples of Bad Theology, only I got involved in setting up a Facebook page for this blog. But now I’m back.

Time for round two in our quest to find a Bumper Sticker worthy of a good Theologian. Please drive safely and use your blinkers.
- Jesus Christ: the only product you need…
It was only a matter of time before our Bad Theology series turned its gaze upon our cars. What we found there could fill a book, my friends.
In fact, the real question became: Is it possible to find good theology on a bumper sticker?
Let’s take a look, shall we?
- First up, a van with conflicting messages:
