Five Christian theologies scarier than Halloween

My new column at the Washington Post On Faith proposes five scary Christian theologies we should reject: dominionism, hell and damnation, “creation science,” and submission.

People are sending me additional ideas.  Post yours to this blog and I’ll upload them as they come in.  Let’s see how long a list we can get.

Graphics welcome, like this one:

One Response to Five Christian theologies scarier than Halloween

  1. Anti-environmentalism, (non)sex-ed, Bootstrap mentality. These are kind of politicized ones though. I am writing a kind of series on twisted Christianity, so I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
