Last year I read Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller and I love the chapter where they set up the confession booth @ Reed College. Their twist was when people came in to confess, Donald and his friends confessed to the non-believers for all of the horrible things done in the name of Christianity. Well in that light, I want to apologize for some the bonehead things people do in the name of Christianity: 1. I apologize for TBN. That has to be the worst representation of Christianity on the airwaves. 2. I apologize for Paul and Jan Crouch especially, Jan's pink hair. 3. I apologize for cheezy contemporary Christian Music that copies Britney Spears and others. 4. I apologize for Amy Grant and Carmen. (Enough said) 5. I apologize for Binny Hinn and his goofy hair. 6. I apologize for politics and Christianity mixing together. 7. I apologize for Pat Robinson and his stupid remarks about, well everything! 8. I apologize for Jerry Falwell, ditto! 9. I apologize for Christian T-shirts 10. I apologize for fall festivals, read Gary Lamb's blog for this. 11. I apologize for anything that removes Christians from rubbing shoulders with seekers. 12. I apologize every cheezy Christian movie from Tribulation to Left Behind. 13. I apologize for me and my self-righteousness.
