  1. Hahahahahaha, this is great (and very useful for a TV project I’m working on). I was researching Rachel Held Evans and stumbled across this. If I may I suggest an addendum – pine unironically for cheesy Christian culture. I saw Stryper a couple years ago and it was not only flippin’ awesome but theologically uplifting AND multi-generational.
