Love it!

Thank you for never shying away from the hard topics! We need more people brave enough to speak Truth, regardless of what society may think about it! So grateful for your voice!

Disappointed.

I thought by the name of this podcast that this would be a welcoming place for Christians who may not fit the norm. Instead, I found the opposite. Whether through her podcast or her Instagram, Blake promotes divisiveness and shares a lot of right-wing conspiracy theories. I was so saddened to see this, as I had hoped this would be a place where Christian “outcasts” could gather to work through religious trauma and focus on our relationship with Jesus. I’m amazed that a podcast titled “Confessions of a Crappy Christian” can give off such holier-than-thou vibes. Sending Blake lots of love and praying that she can find a way to be more welcoming to Christians who have been cast aside from the church, especially LGBTQ+ Christians and marginalized groups.

Horrible

Truly one of the worst “Christian” podcasts I’ve ever had the displeasure of listening to. Don’t waste your time that you can’t get back on this. She got one thing right though - the title is true. CRAPPY CHRISTIAN.
