Drive-By:Doxacon 2014

We've talked a lot about Christian groups who just don't 'get' S-F/Fantasy and try to hammer the genres into what they consider 'lawful'...So imagine my surprise to learn about Doxacon.

No... Doxacon is not a purgative.hmmm.  Well, maybe it is...The central idea behind Doxacon seems to be centered in this quote by St. Basil

EDITORIAL: Why is Christian Science Fiction Generally Such Rubbish?

Republibot 3.0's picture

Why is Christian SF such junk? Seriously? Ask anybody if they can even *think* of any Christian SF, and they'll probably only be able to come up with the "Left Behind" books and *maybe* CS Lewis' "Space Trilogy." But then again, they may not. It's actually comparatively obscure among my fellow Christians. Many of my friends at church have never heard of it, and brother, they *love* the Chronicles of Narnia.

Republibot is *not* a religious site, however as sites like IO9 and The Friendly Atheist and a zillion others have pointed out, there are several Christian groups trying to crack in to the whole “Science Fiction” thing with books and movies and TV shows and whatnot. Most of these commentators are aghast at the concept, and a few of them are frankly apoplectic about it. That kind of reaction always seems like a fertile ground for discussion.
