Description

Snarky Faith is a space where we irreverently wrestle through, life, culture and spirituality. It’s a lighthearted skewering of religion in culture today. Take that all that mix it in with a little music and you’ve got Snarky Faith. The questions or even answers are never the point – it’s all about the conversation. Snarky Faith is on WCOM LP 103.5 Chapel Hill/Carrboro, NC Tuesdays 5-6pm EST www.snarkyfaith.com

The Problem with White Jesus

The problem with white Jesus is that it gives us an excuse to worship a white (or orange) Trump. Christianity was never meant to be tribalistic in nature because, at its core, it&#8217;s meant to be inclusive. Christianity should not &#8230;<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=p7LTVwFFFV0:oDOJMLddSM0:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=p7LTVwFFFV0:oDOJMLddSM0:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=p7LTVwFFFV0:oDOJMLddSM0:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SnarkyFaithRadio/~4/p7LTVwFFFV0" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Most of the responses have been along political lines, but recently, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III decided to insert scripture as a justification for separating families from their children. Now, it&#8217;s not surprising that Conservatives are using religion to justify their &#8230;<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=vxUwziQHYyw:xVIm1U-O6Ws:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=vxUwziQHYyw:xVIm1U-O6Ws:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=vxUwziQHYyw:xVIm1U-O6Ws:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SnarkyFaithRadio/~4/vxUwziQHYyw" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Our show this week is dedicated to VBS and why it so consistently misses the mark. It&#8217;s basically just a Christian marketing exercise.

That&#8217;s just a fact. If you&#8217;re not onboard with me, this show may not be for you. We&#8217;ll delve into the deep recesses of Christian conspiracy theories in the age of Trump.

Before they begin to bask in the afterglow of their own self-congratulations, bigger questions remain. What has this move actually accomplished? What about the Palestinian Christians? &#8230;<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=Wldd2OzmDeE:wv7aoop4fSc:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=Wldd2OzmDeE:wv7aoop4fSc:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=Wldd2OzmDeE:wv7aoop4fSc:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SnarkyFaithRadio/~4/Wldd2OzmDeE" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Evangelicals rejoice every time orders or legislation like this are signed.

Killing Christianity: The Legacy of Evangelicalism

With the culmination and climax of their pursuits in the man and character of Donald Trump, any amount of spiritual or ethical morality has been long evaporated. Their quest for power has come with many costs, the most paramount being the erosion of congregations across America.

Topping that list is racism. It&#8217;s our country&#8217;s original sin. With that being said, how can Conservatives idealize America as a country founded on Christian values? Jesus certainly wasn&#8217;t a racist, so why do so many of his followers still cling &#8230;<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=nCcMP28wdcw:4HY0ZOIK_UY:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=nCcMP28wdcw:4HY0ZOIK_UY:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=nCcMP28wdcw:4HY0ZOIK_UY:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SnarkyFaithRadio/~4/nCcMP28wdcw" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

No, not that one. No, not that one either. Okay, fine. There’s a myriad of toxic issues with Christianity in America, and today we&#8217;re going to delve into the cult of Christian celebrity.

Too often do we overlook the quality of faith-based films. I’m just kidding. This isn’t that kind of show.

This is becoming all too common. The shooting in Parkland, Florida is just a symptom of a larger problem plaguing America.

Chris was a pastor for 22 years before he had enough of the hypocrisy and bigotry in the church. He completely walked away from ministry and almost everything Christian, yet he couldn&#8217;t shake his love of Jesus. His message of grace may be in line with &#8230;<div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=yyp9xz1VDrg:e7rECRMlZyg:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=yyp9xz1VDrg:e7rECRMlZyg:63t7Ie-LG7Y"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=63t7Ie-LG7Y" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?a=yyp9xz1VDrg:e7rECRMlZyg:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/SnarkyFaithRadio?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/SnarkyFaithRadio/~4/yyp9xz1VDrg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>

Who’s Right in the Gun Control Debate?

They’ve practically given themselves this label as a badge of honor. They reject science as an affront to their own religious beliefs and faith. They&#8217;ve learned to not think. Does it have to be that way?

Whether it’s defending your private jets or defending an indefensible President &#8211; it’s all sick, blind, twisted and evil.
