    It is invariably a shock to evangelical Christians to hear or read about someone who has turned his back on the "faith, which was once delivered unto the saints." The quick justification from most believers of such an announced occurrence will be to piously point out that anyone who turns away from Christ was never a real believer to begin with. Or as an insider might say it, "He was never born again."

  9. I was so impressed with Misty's kindness, strength and perspective. At 4 years old Misty gets a virus, which leads to a social anxiety disorder called Selective Mutism. This prevents Misty from being able to speak. She is only able to speak with her parents and brother, but not her older sisters. Misty copes with this through most of childhood. She spent many days playing by herself and being, as she put it "in her head". As early as 11 years old she notices depression. By her senior year in high school, it gets worse. Exposure to an atheist cousin has an impact, but she feels a calling to be a nun. Her years experiencing selective mutism pave the way to her calling as a cloistered nun, taking a vow of silence. Misty's mom thinks she should be a writer (spoiler alert: she is now a reporter for two newspapers....and she loves it!). Tragically, her mother is later diagnosed with cancer and not long after passes away. Misty wonders if God wanted her mother to die, since her mother didn't think Misty should be a nun. Misty learns to grieve without God's help. She grows closer to her father. Her religious and political views change...and it turns out catholic boys aren't necessarily the best boys to date.

  12. Tweet This week’s episode features a conversation with author Ronna Russell, whose book “The Uncomfortable Confessions of a Preacher’s Kid” has just recently come out. We talk about Ronna’s backstory, growing up as a preacher’s kid in evangelical churches. But what happens when things don’t go the way they’re planned, and all the pieces don’t fit into the nice “churchy puzzle?” Ronna has worked her way through some absolutely amazing and traumatic experiences, and this episode will be helpful as much as it is empowering for those who grew up in church, and who have since walked away from it all.

  13. [NEWS] US Appeals Court rules that US House of Reps chaplain cannot be ordered to allow atheist (Dan Barker) to deliver invocation. [NEWS] Uganda govt has proposed legislation requiring religious ministers must have training from recognized institutions, and report their source of income. Ministers heads' explode. [SIAS] Rep Steve King after facing months of criticism about his comments advocating white supremacy and nationalism, he now "better understands" the sufferings of Jesus. Being publicly shamed for making openly racist statements is basically the same as being tortured and nailed to a piece of wood until you're dead. Practically identical.
