The Holy Post

Happy Birthday to the podcast!  To celebrate the 1st anniversary of the Phil Vischer Podcast, Skye makes some funny voices, Phil gripes about celebrities and their ridiculous houses, and the gang covers the big news from the Boy Scouts as well as a surprisingly deep conversation about living the Christian life.  Happy Birthday!

Is theater a form of religion?  What does modern theater (Book of Mormon, et al) say about what we believe, and how can a Christian respond?  And as if that isn't fascinating enough, the gang then jumps into a discussion of how some demographers are predicting falling birthrates across the modern world will result in A) economic catastrophe, and B) the decline of secularism!  Hoo boy!
