“An Eternal Oxymoron”

Here is a very good article on the ever-growing intersection between Christianity and pop culture.

I really liked the following excerpts:

“At this point in history, American evangelicals resemble the Israelites at various dangerous moments in the Old Testament: They are blending into the surrounding heathen culture, and having ever more trouble figuring out where it ends and they begin.

It’s always been a stretch to defend Christian pop culture as the path to eternal salvation. Now, they may have to face up to the fact that it’s more like an eternal oxymoron.”
The article is only a couple of pages long, and is well worth the time it takes to read. You’ll still have plenty of time to catch Dancing With The Stars.

I actually read that article, and thought it was one of Slate's more thoughtful and serious offerings. Do you read Slate regularly?

Rachael,

No I don’t. I only read it every now and then. I do appreciate the sarcasm that is a feature of a lot of their articles.

Luke? Appreciate sarcasm? Surely not.

Veronica,

Yeah, it doesn't seem very likely, does it?
