How to write for Christian Pollution
Want to write for us?
What We Publish
Christian Pollution publishes philosophical arguments, current events or news, personal experiences, polemics, humor, and articles reflecting humanist values. For articles to be accepted, they must be revealing of Christianity’s negative impacts and/or political agendas. Though Christian Pollution is not opposed to the personal freedom to believe in Christianity, the publication aims to reveal this faith’s social mandates, principles, and values causal to many issues. All articles must reflect this goal.
Topics of Interest
Personal narratives reflecting Christian issues such as being raised in a cult, interference in life, sexual oppression, gender oppression, exposing religiously driven groups or businesses, etc. There is wide birth in personal narratives but some key points to keep in mind would be your experience, how Christianity caused harm, and how you survived or overcame this experience.
Philosophical arguments are a key component of understanding Christianity’s issues such as ontological arguments. While you are welcome to submit discussions of this nature, it is best to remember our audience comprises of lay persons who may not understand philosophical jargon, making necessary the writing to be understandable and clear. More than clarity, stories that are most desired are those that relate to people on a practical level such as explaining how a Christian philosopher uses philosophy to confuse individuals or how Creationism promotes racism. While you may submit a discussion concerning the cosmological argument, it should relate to a Christian problem and not simply rehash philosophy.
Current events or news are welcome but please do not simply repeat a story posted on CNN or the New York Times. All current events should be detailed discussions of the happening and should produce a unique viewpoint. For example, a new law in Texas banning abortion might want to discuss the connection between this law and Christianity, showing underlying motives or outcomes unexpected.
Social commentary or mixing article themes are welcome but please do not rehash topics and make personal rants unless they are done in a unique way. For instance, if you want to write about what bothers you most about Christianity, you should do this in a creative way that captures the reader's attention. (See example.)
Poetry is a great way to share emotion and any poem you have that is related to Christian Pollution is acceptable.
