In this episode of Misfit Faith I discuss the origins of the American Gospel which promises wholeness and wellbeing to those who jump through the right hoops (hint: its source has a forked tongue). We hear from Peter Rollins about the church as a satanic community, and then I answer a caller’s question about whether we should think of God as a magic genie in the sky. I end the show with an impassioned cry for shopping and buying local, but not for the reasons you might think.
