In June 1995, I found myself hanging out with Moby in the back of his tour bus, parked outside of First Avenue in downtown Minneapolis. He was in the middle of his headlining tour for Everything Is Wrong, which was named “Album of the Year” by Spin magazine. And he talked to me about his “ambiguous” faith in Jesus Christ.
Re-reading that interview 18 years later, I’m struck by how much his “liberal Christian” faith then resembles my progressive faith now. I’ve evolved. I’ve changed. And I wonder where Moby is at these days, if he’s entered the ranks of the atheist and agnostic, like so many of my other post-conservative and post-liberal friends. Or maybe he’s still holding on in some way. Maybe I’ll look him up and find a way to get back in touch.
