In this episode of The Happy Rant Ronnie and Barnabas, sans Ted, wander to and fro through a variety of topics:

1. Jesus apparently needs a $100 million PR campaign
2. But does Jesus want a PR campaign? Will it do any good?
3. Is viral kindness actually kind?
4. Is therapy booming because the church is failing? (pastors as counselors, therapists as hired friends, and outsourcing honesty)
