Some of my more conservative readers may not care for this, but, oh well...
Relevant Media Group founder and publisher Cameron Strang (whose Relevant Podcast is entering its death throes, apparently, now that Adam is leaving as I just found out this afternoon) turned down an invitation to give the benediction at the Democratic National Convention next week. As you can imagine, he had to say no because it would compromise his position from being 'neutral'. That would make sense, since he works in media and much of his base is still conservative - even though they (we) may be on the liberal side of that swing, his audience tends to be evangelical. By nature, ev's are a conservative animal.
So, which fuddy-duddy Unitarian minister, United Methodist gay pastor, or Earthen Priestess did the DNC finally pick to replace Strang? Donald-flippin'-Miller! Yes!
For the uninitiated, I say skip the over-hyped (but still decent) Blue Like Jazz and head straight for Searching for God Knows What. I talked briefly about both of them here and here.
