I sold The Babylon Bee about a month ago. I’m no longer running it, but it’s still in good hands. I thought I’d let you all know what, who, and why. A Christian entrepreneur named Seth Dillon is the new majority owner. My friend Kyle Mann, who has been with the Bee since nearly the very beginning and was head writer since September 2016, has now taken my place as full-time editor and publisher.
Though you undoubtedly follow The Babylon Bee‘s unparalleled coverage of the “prosperity gospel” (sometimes called the “health and wealth gospel,” “gospel of success,” “Word of Faith movement,” “name it and claim it theology,” or simply “using the name of Jesus to get incredibly rich”), maybe you’ve found yourself wanting to know more about this intriguing worldview and the slick, smiley, plastic-looking people you see on TV preaching about Jesus and success. Well, wonder no more!
