Almost. Almost. Almost.
Almost got through through a Christian podcast* without groaning in annoyance.
Not “without encountering something I disagree with” but without making a raspy nasal sound and wanting to throw my hands up and give up.
And I was looking forward to unlocking the achievement, too.
Didn’t make the cut this time. Again.
*or book, or whatever, but this time it was a podcast.
This time it was this episode of Theology Nerd Throwdown, which I found my way to through some blogpost or another.
[link notes, if you listen: gender binarism, Christian antisemitism; some discussion of homophobia, abuse, assorted nastiness; very churchy. VERY very churchy.]
“Persuasive power is, ultimately, what God thinks is sexy. God thinks it’s sexy–”
Would you please cease and desist.
Okay well maybe I’ll listen just five minutes more and–
Ahhhhmmm flippant rape metaphor, nope, nope, nope. We’re out.
