030| Crystal Cheatham: The Bible Came Back To Me

Sometimes you can't find the thing you need, so you have to make it yourself. After years of deconstruction and reshaping of her faith, Crystal Cheatham found herself wanting a place to find inclusive, queer-affirming, non-gendered writings—and Bibles—that she could use in her own spiritual practice. But the resources out there weren't willing hear her pitch. So, she became a resource herself. Founder of OurBibleApp and host of her own podcast called Lord Have Mercy—which deals with God, sex, and the Bible—Crystal is someone you need to know about, and we're happy to make the introduction.

And big news, heathens—you've been asking, now we're responding: the Heathen merch store is now open for business. Every phrase we've ever delighted in during the two seasons of this show has been turned into fantastic shirts, hoodies, mugs and water bottles, phone cases... even a onesie! Visit the Heathen Haberdashery and—heads up!—100% of our profits from the first week of sales, starting today, go to support a 12-bed immigrant shelter here in San Diego. Go get your swag and help make a difference for families working through the U.S. immigration system.
