As the seeds sown in the emergent mud bear fruit…

You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Matthew 7:16


Bart Campolo announcing he is agnostic does not surprise most people. After all, his father Tony Campolo is the head of Red Letter Christians, an Emergent Church founder of a model based on “did God really say” approach to truth being relative.

No, what is interesting (and the reason we share this here), is the words Bart uses to describe his departure from faith Christianity belief …his tribe.

We have clearly crossed the bridge of “I Can’t Believe This is Happening”…

I can’t believe our faith has been attacked to the point that Christians are cowering under the fear of government. Priests and men of cloth are beginning to preach communism every Sunday and support Islam.

I can’t believe the number of mosques that are mushrooming around the country literally overnight. But then we are tolerant in America to the point of foolishness while most Muslim countries do not tolerate Christianity except until recently, Egypt…

I can’t believe our schools in many states are now bowing down to Islam while forbidding our Christian traditions, national anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, and our flag…

I can’t believe that we lost our country to Marxists and everybody seems to be preoccupied by the latest episode of their favorite reality show, sports team, vampire show, and witch show…

Church of the Disillusioned

On Sunday, the inaugural Sunday Assembly in Los Angeles attracted more than 400 attendees, all bound by their belief in non-belief. Similar gatherings in San Diego, Nashville, New York and other U.S. cities have drawn hundreds of atheists seeking the camaraderie of a congregation without religion or ritual.

The founders, British duo Sanderson Jones and Pippa Evans, are currently on a tongue-in-cheek “40 Dates, 40 Nights” tour around the U.S. and Australia to drum up donations and help launch dozens of Sunday Assemblies. They hope to raise more than $800,000 that will help atheists launch their pop-up congregations around the world.

Richard Dawkins’ Faith Festival Invitation Protested by Scottish Christians

Renowned author and biologist Richard Dawkins has been invited to speak at the faith-themed Faclan Hebridean Book Festival in Scotland, and some local church groups have questioned how the atheist professor’s presence would benefit attendees.

The festival, which will take place in November in the Scottish town of Stornoway, on Lewis Island, explores belief and faith in the various ways it is presented in literature, which includes anti-theist works such as Dawkins’ own The God Delusion.

A Canadian atheist has filed a $5,000 lawsuit against his municipal council because its members recite the Lord’s Prayer at the start of every meeting, which causes him “anguish, discrimination, exclusion, rejection and loss of enjoyment of life.”
Peter Ferguson, supported by a representative of the Secular Ontario group, says his lawsuit is not an attack on Christianity, as he doesn’t believe “in the Christian savior God, nor any other god or gods, nor in any supernatural being or ‘higher power’ whatever.” The Kimberley, Ontario resident claims his grievance is more about getting local officials to comply with the law by dropping the long-held council tradition.
