My Answers To 31 Questions For Atheists

Steve Shives put me on to this series of questions for atheists by apologist Matt Slick. (Unfortunate name, I know, but let’s try not to hold that against him.).  I’ve done this before, with a series from Today’s Christian.

Steve Shives, one of my favorite Youtubers, is talking about Mark Driscoll, the lying sexist homophobe who started Mars Hill Church, which is a big deal among the dudebros of the my friendly neighborhood’s religious right. He’s been kicked out of the church he founded, but I don’t think the church’s board has nominated a successor to continue… Continue reading Local Grifter Makes Shives’s List Of Five Stupid Things Of 8/11
