For those of you new to this neck of the woods, we’re covering some classes we took at a “Synod School” first talked about here. In last week’s episode, we told you about our birdwatching class. This week we tackle the Letter from the Birmingham Jail. Quite the change-up, don’t you think? I warn you,… Read More Doing the Right Thing – Presby-style
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. Sigh.
This is my second theology post with a Bizarro comic. I fear if this continues, I’m going to have to add Dan Piraro as a cowriter and give him a cut of my earnings.

My only question would be, what hate-filled hogwash should I choose? But dang it all! As it turns out, sometimes we Christians get… Read More Sometimes We Get It Right
Alrighty gang, our judgment on last week’s Bad Theology post was considered not harsh enough for some readers (though one defended the picture), and I pledged I’d condemn with greater vigor from here on out. Later, I found myself saying, “Meh. I’ll do what I want.” In any case, I want you to know it’s… Read More Bad Theology or Bad Parenting?
