Carrie Underwood Addresses Her Atheist Haters: “If You Don’t Like It, Change The Channel”

Just last week, Carrie Underwood released her new single “Something In The Water,” but unlike most of her newly-released tunes, it wasn’t exactly met with open arms. Carrie’s song, which affirms her belief in God, conversion and baptism, focuses on the strength she found from Christianity, which has left some of her atheist fans le…

Pole Dancing For Jesus Is The New Christian Workout

 

If you thought pole-dancing died when Miley Cyrus got on the pole, you were wrong. The true death knell is Pole Fitness For Jesus, a pole-dancing class for good Christian ladies in the sleepy town of Old Spring Town, Texas. The women in the Pole Fitness For Jesus class strut in high…

Dina Lohan isn’t worried about her daughter Lindsay’s legal troubles because “God has a plan.” [PopEater]
Apparently part of God’s plan is for the Lohans to open clothing boutiques in Venice, CA, and New York City’s SoHo. Wait, isn’t this the plot of that “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” spin-off? [RadarOnline]

Girl Talk: I Was Raised A Fundamentalist

In my life as a 27-year-old media professional in New York City, the subject of God is not one that comes up a lot. Even when it does, I am reluctant to join the conversation, because my vocabulary is often different from that of almost everyone around me.

Why Are Women More Into God Than Men?

This is interesting: a new study done by Trinity College confirmed that more women than men believe in God. In a survey of Americans who claim to be unaffiliated with any religion, 19 percent of men were nonbelievers while only 12 percent of women were.

Sex Will Bring You Closer to God

A pastor in Texas thinks the best way to get closer to God is to have a ton of sex (if you’re married, that is). Rev. Ed Young, pastor of the evangelical Fellowship Church in Grapevine, Texas, issued a “sexperiment” challenge to his congregation of 20,000: sex every day for seven days. Sex, Rev. Young…

So I’m Engaged: Wherefore Art Thou, God?

In my opinion, getting married as a religious person is much easier than getting married as an Atheist or an Agnostic because deciding who is going to officiate the ceremony is so filled with confusion, it would just be simpler to say, “Well I guess Father Tom will take care of business.”
