An Open Letter to Brian Habeth of Wooded Hills (How Did that Rapture Work Out for You After Iraqi Freedom?)

Brian Habeth from Wooded Hills had a birthday the other day. In addition he also recently sent me a message warning me about my soul. This is an open letter that is a response to Brian and Wooded Hills. When I think of the extreme charismatic theology and Christian nationalism that takes place at Wooded Hills, if that is what being a Christian is like, well then Hell will be like Heaven for me.  Continue reading

It wasn’t Roe vs. Wade that brought them about, instead it was the threat of evangelical schools losing funding due to their embrace of segregation. Finally The Wondering Eagle heard of a demon sitting in Germantown, Wisconsin for Trish Stern to dispatch the high school youth group to combat.  Continue reading
