“A warm welcome to Zingcreed, the international Christian-atheist polemic. This post is a publisher’s blurb about a book on Trumpism and the  US church. I’ve sent for a review copy and will publish this on Zingcreed as soon as I can.  Two previous posts on Trump (details below) have become more relevant as time passes, […]

I was bowled over by the latest version of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, and I urge all readers of Zingcreed to see it at the first possible opportunity. I loved the original 1973 film so much I bought the DVD. A second film version was made in 2000 which I haven’t seen, but the 2012 film […]

Here in London the Kingdom Church of Camberwell is the latest church of African origin to get headlines for all the wrong reasons. Chilli pepper in toddlers’ eyes to ‘drive out the devil’, drinking petrol at services, faith healing ceremonies which leave perfectly healthy members of the congregation writhing on the floor, gay-bashing, throwing children […]

My old friend Gary Eagling, working as ‘Eagle Spits’ on Saturday nights in pubs in the Nottingham area gives all his proceeds to a charity for homeless […]

“In the Judaeo-Christian tradition the rich have always got a lot of stick. It starts with the Jewish prophets of old who condemned the oppressors who took the land away from the poor  (Lev. 25), who took away wages from the day labourers (Jer. 22:10), who took away their dwellings (Job 20:19) as well as […]

The perfect disaster for disaster capitalism by Leonardo Boff (Brazilian Liberation Theologian) 2020-03-21   The current coronavirus pandemic represents a unique opportunity to rethink the way we inhabit the Common House, the way we produce, consume and relate to nature. The time has come to question the virtues of the order of capital: unlimited accumulation, competition, […]

“Seventy seven, seventy seven!” I like the sound of that – it rolls off the tongue! That’s my age now and with it come certain  questions: “Am I a boring old fart?” “Is one’s age just a number that doesn’t really tell us anything of interest?” “Are you just as old as you feel? ” […]

“A warm welcome to Zingcreed, the post-Christian blog written by a science teacher that isn’t afraid to take on the big boys or criticise the church’s most sacred beliefs.
