This is the sixtieth installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section. Let’s have some fun!
Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a video titled What if Starbucks Marketed Like a Church?, produced by Richard Reising. Reising is an Evangelical who supposedly has a passion for “today’s church and reaching the lost for Christ.” In other words, Reising’s “ministry” is the same old Evangelical shtick with a fresh coat of fuchsia paint.
This feels like it comes out of parks and recreation but it is missing something…
Okay maybe a few things. Churches need to stop trying to be hip, it just creates actual hell on earth.
At least the makers have realised how wierd church meetings can be!
I followed the link to his website and it is very telling that this guy is a marketing expert. I suppose that is what God needs these days.
