Purple Church - Woodsporn/Hayseed EPs


Stephen Carradini
I hadn’t even heard the “Woodsporn” EP before I was impressed with Oklahoma City band Purple Church, because anything that comes handnumbered, hand-printed and sporting a mini-zine (complete with fold-out mini-poster!) as liner notes is pretty impressive.

Why do liberals love Islam, hate Christianity?

Letters to the Editor

Martin Morrell
I have several comments regarding Kurt Hochenauer’s Feb. 9 Gazette Commentary “Counterpoint: Separation anxiety.” Hochenauer worries that discussing religious ideas could “dumb down” our students. As dumbed-down as our public schools already are, it’s hard to believe that discussing anything could dumb them down any further.

Denomination divisions

An amendment that would allow the ordination of gay clergy has some Presbyterian ministers talking schism.


Greg Horton
The Presbyterian Church (USA) moved closer to ordaining LGBT candidates for ministry last month. The Twin Cities Presbytery in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area became the 87th presbytery to ratify Amendment 10-A, which changed previous language that only allowed for married or celibate candidates to be considered.

Divine digs

The new owner of a century-old church in Midtown is determined to repair the building and inspire parishioners’ lives.


Greg Horton
Frontline Church held its first service in its downtown location on Christmas Eve in 2011. Although the building at N.W. 10th Street and Robinson Avenue is a new site for Frontline, it was originally the home of First Christian Church, beginning in 1911.

Like a prayer


Gazette staff
A bill recently passed by the state House would allow churches to speak to you about getting your soul to heaven before they blow your ass to hell. Authored by Rep. Mike Ritze, House Bill 2988 seeks to give church officials legal authority to smoke your candy-heathen ass in a place of worship if they deem it necessary.

Killer Joe

Finger-lickin’ great.


Rod Lott
When cast in the right role, which is rarely and does not include Magic Mike, Matthew McConaughey can be an electrifying onscreen presence. His breakthrough bit in 1993′s Dazed and Confused is one of those times; Killer Joe is another.
