‘Tis the Season

Some you may remember I’ve mentioned my old post about Life Church being the single greatest traffic draw on this blog. It still is; that post five years ago still gets more hits than any other single post. As you might expect, among those who come here for that post are quite a few who have their own horror stories to tell. This weekend I got a private email from someone alleging serious sex crimes committed by the staff at one of the many Life Church campuses. It appears to have been swept under the rug, but maybe not for long.

Notice how that fits in with the current social media trend? It’s as if this is the season for that sort of thing. I’m not surprised about any of it. We already knew Hollywood was a moral cesspool, and government has always been rife with such shenanigans. And I can assure you that there’s a lot more of it among big religious organizations than you would imagine. On the one hand, there’s a lot false allegations about it among people who are innocent, while the folks who are guilty often face no such suspicions.

But we can expect the revelations to keep coming. It’s just a small part of the hand of God on America. It’s a standard feature of tribulation and wrath for evil secrets to be shouted from the housetops.

    I’m not one to be like “the Bible says this, but look how it translates to modern phenomenon!”…but the housetop thing is interesting, since we depend plenty on transmission towers and satellites to keep e-communication going.

    Well, it is a rough equivalent in terms of purpose. ANE folk would climb up to a convenient high place to communicate with large numbers efficiently.
