Rhett and Link’s Breakup: The Source of Much Controversy!

Rhett and Link have been successful, but they have also caused some controversy. Some viewers, for instance, complained about their newfound spirituality. Rhett addressed this in a March blog post on Medium.

Rhett remarked, “Keeping our Christian religion to ourselves was getting pretty unbearable,” and went on to explain how leaving the church had opened his eyes to the underprivileged communities’ struggle to have their voices heard.

Several posts on Reddit have been inspired by Rhett and Link’s contentious choice. When they found out the couple had broken up, several of their followers had a hard time dealing with it.

They stated something like, “It felt like a stab to the gut, and I don’t know why since I am going through my own spiritual wondering,” and then opened the floor to audience members for further discussion.

Dividing from the Bible

Most of the turning points in Rhett’s deconversion are tied to shifts in his perspective on the Bible and the way his own tradition interprets it.

He starts off by explaining how he joined a group of “Young Earth Creationists” (those who believe the universe is only about 6,000 to 10,000 years old) while in university.

He dismissed evolution through natural selection out of hand because it seemed like a last-ditch effort to explain how the universe we live in could have formed without an intelligent designer.

Apologetics books aren’t written for those who are still on the road to destruction; they’re written for those who have already been saved.

It’s certain that they’ll end up collecting dust on the bookcases of believers who can finally sleep well thanks to the fact that someone put their thoughts down on paper.

At about the 24-minute mark of the episode, Rhett compares the development of human DNA to two pages of an instruction manual getting stuck together, but with the headers and footers still in place to show where one page ends and the other begins.

Wow, you really nailed the analogy. Endogenous retroviruses are present in humans and other primates, much like the coffee stain that resurfaces in updated versions of instruction manuals to attest to shared ancestry.

YouTuber Rhett McLaughlin spent his whole youth and early adulthood trying to be the model of a likeable Christian.

McLaughlin and his best friend and business partner Link Neal produced hundreds of episodes of the YouTube series “Good Mythical Morning,” in which they reminisced about their biggest high school pranks and argued about who was the greatest superhero.

McLaughlin was generating the nonexplicit, humorous, and uniquely internet-y stuff for an expanding following while also trying to make peace with a decade-long faith deconstruction.

McLaughlin, 44, calls himself a “hopeful agnostic” following the “unravelling” of his beliefs. His first CD, “Human Overboard,” is a recounting of his inward quest.

To distinguish his new musical endeavour from his upbeat YouTube videos, McLaughlin used the stage name “James and the Shame,” which is a play on his middle name.

McLaughlin, who looked much more serious than his 17.7 million subscribers are used to, told Religion News Service that he doesn’t consider any topic too personal for his therapy-turned-country-music enterprise.

McLaughlin used his post-pandemic spare time creating lyrics as a kind of self-care after receiving great feedback on the channel’s deconstruction series in 2020.
