      Guest Speaker 1.26.17 @ 8pm eastern   01/22/2017

      I am pleased to announce that we have are going to have a Q&A with an ex-evangelical on Thurs, January 26, 2017 @ 8pm.  The Q&A will last for approximately 1 hour.  I will be setting up a subforum for guest speakers as I hope to be able to get some other folks come talk to us. Our guest on Thurs will be Chris Stroop.  Here is his bio: Christopher Stroop grew up a rank-and-file member of the Christian Right in an Evangelical enclave community, Stroop's childhood social milieu consisting mostly of family and people associated with church and/or Christian school. From about the age of 16, Stroop found himself dealing with an increasingly acute crisis of faith that was not addressed properly by the people he talked to about it, and he was subjected to spiritual abuse. Stroop nevertheless went on to earn a BA in history and German from Ball State University (summa cum laude) in 2003, and then a Ph.D. in modern Russian History and Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities from Stanford in 2012. Subsequently, Stroop spent three academic years teaching in the School of Public Policy at the Russian Presidential Academy of National Economy and Public Administration in Moscow, where he kind of sort of almost got in trouble for "teaching Pussy Riot lyrics." Currently, Stroop teaches nineteenth-century European history and Russian Studies classes as a Provost's Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of South Florida and, as a freelance writer and public speaker, speaks out against the abuses of conservative Christianity in general and the the white Evangelical subculture he comes from in particular. You can find many of his writings in this vein on Religion Dispatches. If you would like to support this work financially, please click here (for monthly support) or here (to leave a one-time gift). Stroop's more academic writings can mostly be found here, and you can follow him on Twitter - @C_Stroop.   We are going to use the Q&A forum format.  I will be setting up a special forum just for Chris.  I will open the forum about 15 minutes before the Q&A starts so you can start asking your questions.   We have a few rules.  Failure to follow these rules will get you temporarily placed in the Prayer Closet so we can preview your posts.  If you get put in the PC during the Q&A you will be released once it's over, but lets just follow the few simple rules so none of that is necessary. Rules for Q&A: 1. Be polite.  This is not an event meant for snark.  Chris is taking time out of his busy schedule to talk to us.  He is an expert in the things we discuss here, so let's give him respect, please. 2. One question per post.   Please don't bog him down with a bunch of questions in one post.  We are using the Q&A format so he can easily answer questions.  Putting a ton of questions in one post defeats the purpose.   You can continue discussion on the thread as he answers and ask another question in the same thread if you have one after he answers. 3. Please try to keep thread drift to a minimum during the Q&A.  After it's over, if you want to continue discussion on the topics  and they drift, that's fine. 4.  Be polite! These rules are subject to change as I and the helpmeets think over possible loopholes (cause there is always one person that has to push boundaries)

I've seen the ones of Jesus up to bat with the kids, and carrying the football... sandals and football. Really.

My contribution: Ohio's pride and joy, the big butter Jesus, presented before and after lightning strike.

In that last one, you'd think the son of God wouldn't have a male pattern baldness. Guess we can blame Mary's father for that.

      This is weird. And his head is disproportionately small.

     I have no idea, but that makes sense. I googled weird religious art.

This is a hilarious blog post by a Mormon guy poking fun at some seriously bad Mormon art. Here's a highlight!

       This is awesome! The good thing about being a recluse is that I can hang this stuff up in my house because nobody would ever see it!

Man, this guy really has all bases covered. Smoking cigarettes, snorting cocaine, drinking liquor, injecting something, a HUMAN SKULL just hanging around...  I don't know what that thing on the doorknob is but I assume it's further evidence of his depravity.

Reminded me of something I saw on Patheos years ago so I hunted it down...

Apparently it's something a whole cult about boinkin' for Jesus published, so, even more "welp".

You aren't a true Ohioan if you don't have a picture of yourself and two of your friends making the Ohio State O-H-I-O using big butter Jesus as the "H."

And if you follow back to the site for the full image, there's a gun and some playing cards on the table too.  Gotcha covered.

I recommend the art4god.com site for more head scratchers:

WAS Big Butter Jesus REALLY made out of butter, or was that just its color?
