Stuff Christians Like--Satirical Websites

One of my former youth passed through town this week and casually mentioned a website he thought I should check out. Rarely have I seen a site that is as "spot on" as this one: Stuff Christians Like. If you're like me and you grew up in the deep south, attending a smaller church, and totally caught up in Christian culture, then you will laugh out loud at Jon Acuff's observations.

Post #1 is about how Christians like to rip off the secular world for their use. He is quick to point out how this is exactly what he is doing in ripping of the popular (and controversial) blog, Stuff White People Like. From topics like unspoken prayer requests, Braveheart, camp experiences (here, here, and here too), mixed bathing, and even Psalty the Singing Song Book, he covers the gamut of my life from age 5 to 18.

Kudos, Jon Acuff. I will lift up an unspoken prayer request for you in Sunday School this week.
