Evangelicals do some VERY strange things

Todd Friel is a conservative Christian radio host — often with Kirk Cameron. According to Charisma News: In his new book, Judge Not, Friel exposes evangelical trends such as:
  • Youth pastors who force their students to drink a can of Coke through another student's dirty sock or put peanut butter in their armpits for students to lick out.
  • Pastors who instruct their married couples to have sex every day for 30 days.
  • Churches that applaud when their pastor zip-lines into the sanctuary dressed as Spider Man.

Who knew that these were trends?

I had no idea. The first of these thoroughly grosses me out. Having sex every day doesn't sound like a bad idea if  both participants are “in the mood” and have the stamina (I no longer do). I know — TMI. As for the third item, assuming that the zip-line is kind of cool, would Batman be a better choice?

As for Mr. Friel, he could use some adjustment as well:
With 350,000 Protestant churches in America, our national anthem should be A Mighty Fortress Is Our God. Instead, we are Slip Sliding Away.
In addition to the peanut butter fetish, some Evangelicals are wed to the belief that the Establishment Clause doesn't say what it says but that's just how I see it.
