Theology of South Park. Evangelical Confirmity.

A US News and World Report article builds on new research that confirms what I’ve been saying about evangelical conformity. Anna Greenberg vice president of Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research summarizes as follows, “this is a group that is integrated into the mainstream. Evangelicals are just not that much different from the rest of America.”

Meanwhile, a very interesting NYT piece about the “theology of South Park” (yes there is one!), puts it’s finger on what drives the show: adolescent rage against hypocrisy.

Smokey Robinson has emerged from a battle with cocaine to proclaim his devotion as a follower of Jesus and pitcher Miguel Batista is on an intellectual and spiritual search.

And 20/20 crossed the lines of reality TV propriety (who knew such lines existed) with a promo that sounded like a reality-TV adoption giveaway. AND The “American Idol” voting controversy gets a more serious look in a USA Today editorial.

Finally, Jerry Bridges “The Pursuit of Holiness” is enjoying a 25th anniversary and we bring you transcript and audio!

Yours for the pursuit of God in the company of friends, Dick Staub.

PS. And remember, “these are the best of times and the worst of times, but they are the only times we have.” (For Now).
