“The Devil Wears Nada” Reviewed By A Christian Humanist and A Christian Anarchist (something here is not right)

Click here to read a review of The Devil Wears Nada by The Christian Humanist. And/or . . . click here to read a review of The Devil Wears Nada by Jesus Radicals. Both are solid reviews, and I say that not because they are relatively positive (with stellar criticisms) but because they actually read the book. I know. Incredible, right? But you can’t always count on reviewers reading the material–even from the so-called professionals. I won’t name any names, but... Read More

“Don’t Call it a Comeback!” (He’s been here for years)

This may well be the year of Satan. A number of books, films, and presidential candidates seem to suggest we have yet to give up on our fascination with Old Horny.

Primarily, it’s a book about the co-opting... Read More

The Devil Wears Nada (“Ain’t got no reason to be ‘shamed!”)

What happens when a high-strung Mennonite armed with an overpriced education goes on a search for Satan in order to prove the existence of God? Disappointed parents. “Really, Tripp? Is this why you went to graduate school?” asked the equally high-strung and very southern mother who continues to pronounce my name with two-syllables (think “Tre-yup”). “No,” I responded, “I went to graduate school so I wouldn’t have to work.” Or,... Read More

That Guy Ain’t No Johnny Rotten (or Derrick Jensen, or John Zerzan, or Perry Cox)

“I won’t be satisfied until the last ‘christian anarchist’ is hung from the guts of the last ‘national anarchist’.” –An anonymous anarchist that, I hope, will go through much of life relatively unsatisfied. Check out the quote just below it from the same source (once you click on the above link, you have to scroll down the page a bit to find the quote), “I’d rather roll with church-burning Norwegian black metal neo-nazi... Read More
