Fun Facts of Lent, Day Ten: What do you want to know?

I feel confident that I can figure out 36 more things to say about faith and my church, but sharing all of this isn’t worth much if I’m skipping over the stuff people are actually interested in. So: what do you want to know? Thus far I feel like most of my ideas fall into these general categories:

  1. Episcopal Church history and how the church works
  2. Personal theology
  3. Interpretations of the Bible
  4. Politics and the church (gender/sexuality/separation/etc)
  5. Misconceptions about religion and religious people

Let me know if there’s a category you’d like to hear more about, one you think I’ve forgotten, or just any particular thing you want to hear about. Comments below are appreciated, but I’ll also take responses to Facebook/Twitter and messages to betterthanithought at

And lest you go a day without a legit fun fact: The National Cathedral in Washington D.C. is an Episcopal church. It is open to all and there is a Darth Vader gargoyle on the roof because that is how we roll.

  1. Let’s have more OT Bible stuff……..
    –David having sex with a married woman, has the husband murdered—and yet God doesn’t kill him, thus violating his own law (2 Samuel 11-12);
    –Jacobs’s sons riding into a nearby city (just like the Magnificent 7) and killing everyone there, because the king’s son raped their sister (Genesis 34—-this is one of the best badass lines in the Bible; ‘No one is going to rape our sister and get away with it’);
    –Hey hipsters: God hates tattoos (Leviticus 19:28)!
    –A woman lures a rival king into her tent, gets him asleep, and drives a tent stake through his head into the ground (Judges 4)!

    So much there to geek out on……
