When I owned the Bookstore, with nothing but true love and affection for those people who did shop there, the singular lesson I learned about "Christian" retail and publishing is that it is what it is because that's how people are willing to spend their money. People who wants something different from a Christian bookstore than what you can find at any ol' Christian bookstore aren't willing to spend their money on the stuff they say they wish was in there, and the people who are willing to spend their money on what they wish was in there don't want what's actually good for them: they want what they want to make them feel good about who and what they are.
That's why Joel Osteen and Joyce Meyers are such big hits, and why they make tens of millions of dollars every year. They are delivering the goods.
That's also why this is a hobby for me and not a way to make a living: nobody is going to pay for this stuff. When we sound the horn that the problem is not gay activism but that the church abandoned marriage a long time ago (here and here), we didn't get even a HT from people who are now actually saying it publicly.
What I am not asking you to do, BTW, is to pay me or Dan for anything. Our collective problem is that we simply cannot shut up, so paying us to do what we're going to do until they come for us to take us away seems like asking you to do something for nothing. But I want you to think about this carefully, and ask others to do so also: even if you are not spending your money on TBN merchandise and the next Osteen book, what are you spending your money on, and why? And if you can't explain it, then I think you're probably not as upset about the state of the local church as you might say that you are.
