Sign up now for the free webinar 5 Myths About Women, Sex and Porn.

Because of our careers in Music and ministry we have spent the last twelve years in bars, churches, tour buses, counseling sessions, wild parties, prayer circles, and circles of people doing drugs. It's given us a perspective that's too interesting to keep to ourselves, so we write about it on this Blog, and talk about it on this Podcast. Campaigns are projects we are currently working on.

Sharing our Shit (Sounds Disgusting? Usually Is.)

At BadChristian, we get tons of awesome e-mail's from you guys letting us know that every once in a while, we do a pretty good job at connecting them to Jesus, even when it's one of the hardest things you'll ever do. Joey really wanted to share one readers story about how being open and honest turned out better than they could have ever imagined.

Since we have been asked 80 million times, we thought we would give a crack at discussing racism in America, Ferguson and our upbringing in the South in the 80's. Being that we don't know much and are not well spoken, we thought we would bring in a guest who has a lot of interest in the subject. Jake Dockter is a writer and has a blog called Theology of Ferguson. Sponsor info: Harry's Razors promo code: bcpod fro $5 off X3 Watch Music Sponsor: Wild Earth
