Stuff Fundies Like

Stuff Christians Like is a very funny site. If you grew up in the Christian subculture, it is sure to bring a chuckle or two.

I thought of their site because of a video that Bruce put up. In it, Pastor John Piper is trying to convince the audience that the bible is exciting and interesting. If we don't find it so, it is because the "world" has inverted our perceptions - it is Avatar we should actually find boring.

This is something fundamentalist pastors like to do : find whatever the overall culture is enjoying at the moment and try to bring it down a couple of notches. They can never just enjoy it with everyone.

Their god has insecurity issues.

Ha, I was just thinking about that exactly, how my boredom with the bible would be blamed by my stubborness with God, not hearing the revelations that would be revealed if i would read it enough (with the right fundamentalist inerrantist perspective of course). Higher criticism has made the bible interesting to me again.
