Justin Bieber As Messiah and Anti-Christ

I couple of months ago I had posted a link to a post written by the brilliant Yancey Orr, a good friend of mine who is currently an Anthro lecturer at the University of Queensland. Yancey just wrote another wonderful piece that highlights (as does much of Yancey’s work) exactly what anthropology, history, and philosophy can bring to the examination of our modern culture (and thus ourselves). In this piece, Yancey is, on the face, comparing Bieber and Christ. Quietly, though, he’s asking you to examine the values that you hold dear (or more realistically, those that we no longer hold dear).
