"I spend a disproportionate amount of time deconstructing what people think it means to be saved. I want to… create doubt if I can. That might sound cruel, but I’ve found that it’s one of the most loving things I can do. People think they are Christians because their parents were, because they were born Christians, are Republicans, are Conservatives, aren’t as bad as their neighbor, or are from Texas. Every one of those responses and more have been given to me as an answer to the question, ‘Are you a Christian?’"
