The BadChristian Podcast
Toby's kids are already complaining about gifts they got for Christmas. Matt and Joey share about some spiritual experiences they have had. In the process, Toby is reminded of his vision of an angel with a battle axe! And in the news, RC Sproul Jr. (yes JUNIOR) gets a DUI and resigns. Also, 2016 is so terrible that it's killed Prince, Bowie, George Michael and Carrie Fisher, and even a stewardess who survived a 30,000-foot plane crash in the 70's. Happy New Year, everybody!

Matt, Toby and Joey’s alma mater Winthrop University makes the Damn News.  Students there protested the name of Winthrop’s main building Tillman, as it was named after a racist that supported lynch mobs. Is this type of “erasing history” disadvantageous?  Does it encourage people to forget the real atrocities that happened to minorities in America?  Mistreatment and humiliation of a nursing mother or not?  Catch your spouse cheating? Film the cheating and post online. This guy did. The Damn News folks!

Matt’s babysitter and friend Kayla has been in church her whole life but no longer considers herself a Christian. We talk about being adopted, her conservative upbringing and times at Hillsong college. We also talk about acting a fool when there’s open bar. We discover why Toby was crying cow tears while cutting the grass. And we're pretty sure if anybody from our show stops being a Christian, it will be pastor Joey. And in the news, farts and lasers prove to be a deadly combination.

A hurricane is headed for Charleston, but Joey is just calmly broadcasting from bed with his big gulp and funyons. Toby is disappointed that our show did not make “The Wolf List.” Mega church pastor Andy Stanley is willing to let go of inerrancy to reach millennials which got us thinking about what we’ve let go of on our faith journeys. And in the news...bald is sexy and Denzel Washington strangles Aretha Franklin.

In this jam packed episode, Matt doubts the science behind resurrections and questions food morals. Joey doesn’t think people poop in heaven. Toby isn’t sure about anonymous giving or the specialness of birthdays. Matt also kicks off McDonalds Appreciation Month and introduces us to the charming expression “vagina smasher.” And in the damn news...have you ever wanted to get high and lift weights? All your dreams may be coming true!

We talk to Greg about his becoming a YouTube phenomenon, the transgender bathroom debate and his unique communication style. Despite his likability, we challenge his approach in calling unbelievers out for their sin, his belief in the need for America to be Christianized and his brashness at the risk of sounding unloving. Toby also may finally be on board with Joey’s belief that lying can often be a good thing.

What about praying for the dead and the ridiculous “unspoken request?” More importantly, we catch up with Dan and Nate from Sherwood to discuss their new record and tour as well as debut a new track from the album.

Jason Soto (Cookbook) of the critically acclaimed hip-hop outfit, L.A. Symphony joins the podcast to talk hip-hop, the deconstruction of his former evangelical faith, the ensuing treatment he received from the church, his conviction of authenticity and where he’s at now in his music career. Joey also saw a cat trying to commit suicide and another pastor makes an unnecessary awkward joke to find common ground. Check out Cookbook’s music and hire him to be a coach.

We talk about Emery’s early church touring days and how, according to Toby, the Holy Spirit put a quick halt to playing any more church venues. We talk about Aaron Gillespie using certain words on our podcast and how it cost him some concert dates. He lost money but did he do the right thing? We have some audio troubles and also, Matt runs out of time and has to leave.

The three discuss the pointlessness of thank you cards, what gender of massage therapist Joey prefers, a new way of looking at “human resources” and another mega-church pastor biting the dust. Also, they agree that if they live to be 90 or older they will spend their final days partying it up and not worrying about what medications might damage their livers.

The three reflect on Matt’s unique emotional response to his miscarriage a year ago and the grand finale? Matt sets out to prove that the “miracle of life” is a myth. Also, we discover that Toby would like to be stranded on a deserted island. And a lot of talk about the feelings and thoughts of carrots.

Also in the show, if cussing isn’t a sin, do we want our kids cussing in K-5?  Matt, Toby and Joey discuss their different approaches in parenting when it comes to the “bad words.” Joey also does month of pre-marital counseling with a couple, does their wedding and gets zero. Stiffed. Matt wants a ticket for peeing in public and Toby is now a one-man-wedding service provider.

Church infrastructure is failing pastors.  Why are they given the benefit of the doubt when it comes to extra-marital affairs? Was it a misdirected zeal for the sake of the gospel when Tchividjian’s elders tried to keep his affair hidden?  Why are narcissists attracted to the Pastoral profession? Also, Joey kicks alligators, Matt has a theory about Stockholm Syndrome in pets and we have a short interview with BC clubber Silas George.
