The Hobby Lobby family visited the Pope. And I’m sure they gave him the gospel, right? Right?
I don’t mean to pick on Hobby Lobby, but I’ll admit I’m not as keen on them as are most Christians (after all, if they’re such staunch believers, why all the Santa Claus and Easter Bunny junk in their stores?), and you can’t deny the irony of this.
Hey, look! New Age Mormon Glenn Beck is reading (and praising) The Circle Maker.
The Archbishop of Atlanta has apologized for his $2.2 million home.

Thom Rainer released a list of “twenty of the most influential evangelicals in America“. The title is extremely misleading: when you only ask 30 people their opinion on such a topic and don’t define what you mean by “evangelical” you end up with a list that includes everyone from T.D. Jakes to Ross Douthat (who is Roman Catholic) to Beth Moore to Al Mohler. To the people who are a bit aflutter over this list: Calm down. Just because Thom Rainer foolishly published a list compiled in ignorance is no reason to raise your heart rate.
