Blog Spotlight: Stuff Christians Like

Stuff Christians Like is written by Prodigal Jon who has a self-titled blog in addition to Stuff Christians Like and also participates on a few others. This is one of the blogs that I haven't been following for all that long, but it seems like at least once a week (sometimes multiple times), he posts something that I want to pass on. So far, my brother and sister have been seeing a lot of this guy in their inboxes.

A big part of this blog is Christianity and focusing on Christ and the bible. Just last week, he did a great post about faith being inconvenient. This was a serious post, with a few joke-y things mixed in. Most of the time, it's the other way around, though.

Some of my favorites lately have been a post about what happens when you hand out fire on Christmas Eve, Claiming songs from the '80s for Jesus, How Christian is your cubical?, People who use their iPhones during church, Pretending to like C.S. Lewis, and How Christmawesome is your Christmas Sweater?

I will tell you right now that you will laugh out loud. Especially at the first one. If you have ever been to a Christmas Eve service, you probably have some sort of feelings about the whole everyone-hold-a-candle-and-try-to-sing(possibly-in-German) thing. Also, if you haven't, you will probably not find it quite as funny, but you will probably still giggle. This is one of those blogs that makes me explode with laughter. And then forward it on to friends.

If you can't laugh at Christians (yourself or others), don't click through to these articles. If you have a good sense of humor, though, definitely go check it out.

This is one I already added. But I don't read. But should. Because it's funny. But I never read my feed. I suppose I should feed it directly to lj somehow. And then. I would read it.

I liked those! The fire and iPhone was hilarious, as were the 80s song. The CS Lewis thing hit home for me (been there, done that on the pretending to like something just to be a "good" Christian).

Read some of his other entries...interesting fellow. I added his feed to my LJ :D

I like the fact that he can make a joke out of stuff without being completely offensive. Reading his blog at work has caused me to have a few coughing-fits-to-cover-the-laughter. :-P

Is that a play on the "Stuff white people like"?

And to note, I don't think I've liked anything on SWPL

Never heard of that before, but possibly just a play on it based on the words - not the content. :)

It is, actually. There's a whole set of of these social commentary blogs originating from one or the other, I assume. My favorite was "Stuff Black People Hate", but I stopped reading my feeds a long time ago due to lack of time. I posted about the set of them in the spring.

Stuff White People Like is funny and unnerving at the same time. Definitely worth a read.

I love the blog about Christmas Eve candles! Haha. Thanks for the link, I'll definitely have to take the time to read more of them.
