Christianity Made Me Talk Like an Idiot
No, Christians aren't idiots, at least no more than the average person.
Seth Andrews was a devout Christian for thirty years, and his IQ didn't change when his religious label changed. He wasn't an idiot, but strangely, he often sounded like one.
In any other context, most Christians would likely smirk, scoff, or recoil at reenacted crucifixions, the drinking of communion blood, and scripture verses about golden hemorrhoids, apocalypse dragons, and child abduction in the name of God. So what gives?
Are these notions "normal" only because they are familiar? Do they make sense? And do they cause otherwise reasonable people to sound like idiots?
Read the book and decide for yourself.
Confessions of a Former Fox News Christian
Seth Andrews idolized Rush Limbaugh. He listened to Glenn Beck. He read Ann Coulter. He watched Fox News. He was an evangelical Christian tethered to right-wing media, constantly on guard against the liberal/humanist/atheist attack on "Traditional American Values."
Today, Seth is a liberal/humanist/atheist.
This books explores the Fox News culture which informed the Christian Nationalist opinions of his past, and examines how Fox is helping to shape and reinforce right-wing opinions on religion, race, government, foreign policy, war, protest, abortion, LGBT rights, and the Constitution.
It's also the story of one man's personal journey into a larger and better world.
Every day, impressionable young minds are conditioned to blindly accept wild biblical tales of talking donkeys, enchanted shrubbery, 900-year-old humans, blood magic, flying chariots of fire, and the often alarming and morally offensive edicts and actions of an ostensibly good God.
In this autobiography, Seth Andrews explores his years as a fundamentalist Christian (and religious radio host), his struggle to reconcile his faith against the facts, and his journey into one of the most popular online atheist communities on the world.
