The Shallow Faith of Tim Tebow. Will the Celebrity Christian Athlete Weep For the Women Ravi Zacharias Abused and Raped?

As the Ravi Zacharias scandal continues there is one aspect that is particularly troubling. Its the silence by Tim Tebow. Tebow described the scandal plagued evangelist as his personal hero. Meanwhile he has not acknowledged the Miller & Marten report documenting sexual abuse by Ravi Zacharias. And as such he has not empathized for the victims of rape and sexual abuse whether it be in Canada, Georgia or Thailand. That is damning, especially for an individual whose ministry focuses on human trafficking. In an Instagram video Tebow was near tears as Ravi Zacharias was dying of cancer. Will he weep for the victims that Zacharias abused? Continue reading

Not a Snowballs Chance in Hell! Some Questions for Jerry Prevo After an Apology for a Snowball Fight at Liberty University.

A massive snowball fight instigated by Jerry Prevo led to complaints to the health department for Liberty University violating COVID-19 social distancing guidelines. Jerry Prevo was quick to apologize for violating the governor’s executive order. And yet here is what is troubling. Prevo is willing to apologize when he wants to and is selective about it. In the wake of the violence at the United States Capitol he has not apologized for the operating Falkirk Center which continues to spit out poisonous toxins of Christian nationalism which is what led to the January 6, 2021 coup attempt. Will he own the mistakes of the Falkirk Center and apologize for the problems its creating? Not a snowballs chance in hell.  Continue reading

Jeff Dornik is Promoting Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Anti-Semitism and Conspiracies. He Illustrates Why White Evangelicalism is a Cancer in the United States

Today’s post looks at Jeff Dornik promoting Marjorie Taylor Greene on Twitter. The founder of the GK Pastors Network and Freedom First Network is pushing a proponent of warped conspiracy theories. Greene is the Q Anon supporter in Congress who has called for Democrats to be executed and says that a plane never hit the Pentagon on September 11, 2001. Greene has also said that school shootings like Stoneman Douglas in Parkland, Florida were staged as a false flag attack, mocked those who survived; and pushes anti-Semitic conspiracy theories involving Jews and space lasers resulting in California’s wildfires. Anti-Semitism starts by ridiculing and marginalizing Jews and denying their humanity. His promotion of Marjorie Taylor Greene is sick and in this blogger’s view indicative of why white evangelicalism is cancerous in this country. The best thing many people can do is leave evangelicalism. Jeff Dornik and culture war evangelicals show why faith is not about God. Its about using faith to obtain political power. Continue reading

Dare We Ask the Question? Was Ravi Zacharias a Sex Tourist in Bangkok? Did He Abuse Women in Thailand and Southeast Asia?

In the report on Ravi Zacharias by Miller and Martin there is one aspect that is particularly troubling and demands further inquiry. It has to do with Zacharias travels to Bangkok, Thailand. Is it a coincidence that out of all the places he could have purchased property he chose to do so in the city known for its international red light district? And with the time he spent in Bangkok this blog would like to ask while writing books is the ultimate reason Ravi Zacharias traveled to Thailand is for sexual vacations? Was he a sex tourist who spent time in the massage parlors of the red light district in Bangkok?  If he abused women in Georgia what was he capable of in Thailand? These are questions this blog post is asking. Continue reading

What White Evangelicals and Christians I Once Knew Taught Me About Faith in the Trump Era

This is a hard post to compose, but its something that I have been meaning to do for a while. The Trump era was painful, chief among it was being at the receiving end of bullying, abuse or seeing such disturbing hypocrisy. Today’s post is about Steve Papez, Chad Hart and Josiah Jenkins and his family. Its about people in ministry I once looked up to who showed me who they really were these last few years. In this case the bridges have been burned and they will never be rebuilt. And with that I find peace especially with leaving such people in my wake.  Continue reading

When Tyler Ethridge was coming to Washington, D.C. for Donald Trump’s Save America rally he believed he was traveling to a combat zone. That D.C. would be similar to Beirut or Baghdad. As a Christian nationalist pastor Tyler was all in for his Lord and Savior Donald Trump. This post is about his activity in the days before the riot and what his alleged behavior was at the Capitol itself on January 6, 2021. Tyler had allegedly participated in a coup attempt and invasion of the Capitol for the first time since the British did so in the War of 1812. Continue reading

After the January 6 Insurrection Liberty University Remains the Only School That Will Not Rescind Donald Trump’s Honorary Degrees. Plus Questions for Liberty’s Police Chief Richard D. Hinkley in Light of the Violence at the Capitol

Liberty University today is the only school that has not rescinded its honorary degrees to Donald Trump. Its still standing by them. Liberty, in the view of this blog, owns some responsibility for the riot in constantly supporting Trump and feeding his ego. And today they are continuing to do so even after five were killed and two police officers committed suicide. Liberty’s behavior is even more insidious in light of new details about the violence at the Capitol. In addition to the dead there are over 140 police officers that are injured. This raises questions about Richard Hinkley and how Liberty’s Police are viewed. But also due to fraternal culture in law enforcement how can Liberty’s Police stand by and stay silent in light of the violence and death of their brothers in Washington, D.C.? Does, “But Gorsuch” “Trump” Liberty’s or D.C.’s Police Officer’s lives? Continue reading
