Does God hate long hair?? Does rock music make you a criminal?? If your wife or sister wears pants will God curse her and cut off her legs?? If this sounds silly to you...you didn't grow up a Fundie.

If you grew up, as I did, in a "Fundamental Baptist Church" you understand what a "Fundie" is. The imprisonment to "standards" and dress codes and whole sermon series about music and haircuts. Stories of women who wear pants, inexplicably losing their legs and, of course...God putting you on the shelf.

I bore the scars of this nonsense, as did most of the kids I grew up with. The sad tragedy is how it twists your view of God into a hateful, angry, capricious, vicious spectre who can never be pleased and really...never did love you, despite what John 3:16 says.

Your host Craig Daliessio, is a former fundie who found grace. A true ragamuffin who lived through a childhood and on into adulthood full of the sick, twisted lies of Fundamental Baptist cultism and found the real freedom of Jesus Christ.

Craig is a graduate of Liberty University and is currently studying for his Masters at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of four books including the soon to be released "A Ragamuffin Christmas...an Advent Journey" and "Sometimes Daddies Cry...what a dad really feels about divorce"

Join Craig as he tells his own story and the story of countelss others who have found freedom from the Fundie Fear.  Craig mixes humor, tenderness, compassion and TRUTH in a perfect remedy for finding the real love of Jesus.

If you shudder at names of Jack Hyles, Bob Jones, Darrell Dunn, PCC, or if you still feel guilty even touching a Bible that's not KJV...this is YOUR place.

If your faith is damaged, or even nonexistent because of scars from the past...this is your home

Join us and find the freedom that the TRUE Gospel presents!
