The BadChristian Podcast

Sex is either treated as overly-sacred or overly-vile.  This influences how parents manage nudity in their household amongst family members and how “private parts” are treated and discussed.  Would society benefit from everyone just chilling out a bit?  If nudity wasn’t so taboo, would people’s sexuality benefit? In other topics, is it weird that God would just beat the hell out of someone for not listening to Him and Muslim salvation tracks vs. Christian salvation tracks.  Don’t forget the Damn News!  Is it fair for a transgender male athlete to label himself female and compete in females athletic events?

Which may mean we don't believe what we think?  Matt doesn’t think he really believes a lot of what he intellectually accepts as true. Oh, and he doesn’t think you do either...about abortion, hell and gay people. Matt also makes some bold statements concerning parents of LGBTQ people.  Joey and Toby are present too, don’t worry.  Lastly, Emery has the “bus blues.”  Are we witnessing the end of Emery?

Does Joey have too lofty of expectations with his marriage?  Especially given he’s been depressed lately.  I mean, how long can his wife survive that sad stuff?  Toby cried himself to sleep a few times lately due to struggles in his marriage and Matt claims most guys wouldn’t have stayed married to his wife as long as he has but also calls his wife a treasure.  Lastly, Joey teaches his mom that that “Prayer of Jabez Book” is a fraud.

As a society, we have serious problems with being too serious.  We disagree with people but we want to destroy them as well?  It’s crazy.   It’s getting out of hand when one person’s life and legacy can be defined by 140 characters.  Also, Joey steals from a restaurant.

Toby thinks worship music deals too often with pain and struggle, especially when the song-writer lives in a first world country, plays the music with expensive instruments and state of the art equipment.  I mean, how bad can things be, right?  Joey sheds some different light on this observation.  In addition, Matt, Toby and Joey discuss patriotism, constipation and "Things that Make Toby Angry."  Lastly, our guest Bradley Hathaway discusses his new album "Flesh Eater" and its unorthodox, risky and potentially seen as risque' expression of sexuality.

George Mekhail, gay affirming Pastor, wrote a letter to mega church Pastor Judah Smith, (City Church, Seattle) asking for clarification on his ambiguous statement about church inclusion during a sermon.  "Is City Church gay-affirming" George writes Judah Smith. "Will City Church affirm, baptize and marry gay people?"  No answer after a few months. During this episode, George Mekhail highlights the importance of churches being clear on where they stand with gay inclusion, while Matt, Toby and Joey take this episode to try and practice that same level of clarity.

During this episode, you get a snapshot as to why BadChristian exists, how much money is made through this operation, where that money goes and why Matt, Toby and Joey spend a lot of time on things that make no money at all.  The headliners of this episode however, are the hosts of BadChristian.com's newest podcast, "Reconstruct: The Collective Reconstruction of Our Faith."  Join Dan Koch and John Raines on Reconstruct Podcast as they provide resources and community for people who are rethinking and reconstructing a faith in God.

On this episode we discuss a recent article from Christianity Today in which Anglican Priest, Tish Harrison Warren, claims that there is a "crisis of authority." She feels that bloggers like Jen Hatmaker and Rachel Held Evans don't have, but need formal accountability to be qualified as "teachers."

While Matt and Toby are on the road to perform new music from the upcoming Matt and Toby album, they have been rethinking what qualifies as appropriate interaction with females.  Reva, an employee and friend of BadChristian, shares the tour bus with six other guys and it's surfaced a lot of interesting thoughts and reflection.  For example, can it be disrespectful to make such an effort to be respectful of "THE GIRL that's present?"  At one of the shows, Toby goes on a verbal tirade towards a young lady that heckles him during the Matt and Toby set.  Lastly, Matt doesn't take showers and Joey ends this podcast with the saddest bomb of a low note one could ever imagine.

What do you do when bad stuff happens in your personal life?  Joey describes his warped strategy which entails thinking of the absolute worst thing that could ever happen in this life.  That way, he can take comfort in his current circumstances "not being so bad."  And the main event?  Scottie Henry from that heavy band, Norma Jean, opens up about his confusion on why former band mate, Josh Scoggin quit the band; they never even talked about it. Scottie also talks about life after Norma Jean, what it's like having a job outside of music and catches us up to speed on his new band, Holy+Gold.
