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.

Whether it's about politics, the church, sports, sin, or how much we hate Gamecock football, please join the discussion. We welcome all comments, whether you are rude, nice, right, wrong, interesting, or annoying.

Fat Jokes

Breaking news - the guys at BadChristian have decided that based on listener feedback, there will no longer be any jokes made regarding obesity, overeating, or Joey's huge (literally) problem controlling his weight. We don't want to offend anyone, and especially not Christians. We apologize for any hurt that's been caused from all the jokes up until now.

Wait, you didn't believe any of that, right? Keep reading to see why Toby thinks we should all just lighten up. Pun intended.
