More often than not, Christians are always seen as serious/uptight/doomsday-like creatures by the rest of the world. And in the instances that “Christian jokes” come up, they’re often considered trite and corny. And the saddest thing of all is that late night shows in the US, and even local columnists have used Christians as “punching bags” for their jokes and sarcastic commentaries.
Along came Jonathan Acuff and his humorous (and controversial) blog Stuff Christians Like which he says is “about the funny things we Christians do. And what they just might reveal about our faith.”
His entries poke fun at such varied things like
…the side hug (aka the safest hug for Christians)
He’s become quite controversial in some conservative circles, but as long as you don’t take it seriously and you remember that this is a satire blog, and it’s all in good, clean, “Christian fun”, it is a fascinating read. And you might find yourself saying “Haha, yes, I do that!” to every other entry.
Because of the tremendous following of this blog, it’s already spawned a book, which you might be able to find at some of the OMF Lit Bookshops. You can also follow Jon Acuff on his Twitter account for daily bursts of hilarity.
