So, you’ve found us. We’ve come out of hiding. Well to be fair, we weren’t actually hiding as much as just sitting around waiting for you to call. We’ve been here all along but haven’t updated the site since we went digital in 2008. And since that turned out to be such an amazing year, it only seemed fitting to come back before the next recession. They say comedy is all about the timing.
It’s already 2020 and yikes what a year, see what happens when we leave? Well the good news is that we’re back! Well, almost.
We have assembled a slightly younger and even more clueless crew to carry on the mantle.
Feel free to poke around this site and get reacquainted with some of the articles. And before you try to send us a message through one of our broken links to tell us… we know, these articles are old and out of date, you can’t leave comments, and most of the links don’t work. But that’s what happens when you are about to turn 50.
That’s right! Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of The Wittenburg Door and we can’t wait to share what we have in store. But unfortunately, you will have to. Just a little bit longer. I promise.
If you are a previous fan, contributor, or would like to be, send us an email. We have lost touch with everybody. Assume we have no way of contacting you if you were a previous subscriber or contributor. The previous gang lost the Rolodex.
We’d love to get in touch with all of you, old fans and new. Some say satire is a bit tricky these days, but I think we are up for the challenge. Let’s see what happens.
The new Doorkeepers are at your service.

Welcome back !
I just read an oddly relevant article.
God bless and get to work plese
Hi Frank, Welcome Back !
You are officially our very first comment on our new site. Congrats! ( Sorry there aren’t any prizes for that ). Larry Norman was one of those special guys for sure.
BTW “Get to work please !” was something my old boss used to say a lot. You aren’t my old boss are you ?
Wow, I can honestly say you were one of my first Christian influences…which is weird because you existed as a parody of Christian culture. How “meta” is that? Anywho, glad you’re still alive and kicking around.
Hi Doc ! Welcome Back ! Your mom always warned you about the company you keep. Glad we rubbed off on you a little. Now, go tell both of your friends. 🙂
Praise God. You are needed now more than ever. Make us laugh, Brethren (and Sestren).
Wow! At our (almost) darkest hour a hero appears! Any holes you can poke in the Christian establishment might let in some light (to steal an image from Leonard Cohen). I read Jon Bloom’s Erasmus essay and that seemed pretty relevant also.
Well, this is one good thing to happen this year, at least. Good luck*.
* Which the reader may interpret as
1) may factors beyond our capacity to predict produce a generally favorable influence on the outcome of choices you will soon make using your God-given free will, or
2) may the predetermined outcome of God’s sovereign will for your immediate future prove agreeable to you, despite your limited capacity to grok the breadth of His divine plan.
Wow, nice to see Jesus isn’t the only one who can resurrect!
Pretty sure I have all, or most of, well, maybe a couple of dozen of the hardcopy Door magazines that I managed to save from my wife’s cleaning frenzies somewhere!
Look forward to seeing what you guys have going forward…you know, before the Covaids shuts down religion thereby cutting off all humour along with your income.
Great to see you back!
We had our own version of the infamous door at Fresno Pacific College (now University) in the 80s, albeit not really satirical.
I was a subscriber to the print incarnation of the Door for years and I’m excited to see you back.
Looking forward to what you have to offer.
Jeff! It’s a sign of the times
Finally! I have waited years for this moment in time, ever since I purchased a subscription to the Door for $30 and received ONE issue before you went belly up and left me high and dry without wit and sarcasm in a world gone mad! Am I bitter? Yep! Did I ever learn to forgive you for taking my money and going dark? Nope! But now we finally have an opportunity for you to make it up to me after all these years. Don’t blow it!
Welcome back. I must say congratulations, you were one of the many who purchased the most expensive last issue of the Door Magazine. It’s a collectors item, and worth at least 25 bucks now on the dark web. But seriously, since we are in the business of making blanket apologies for other people, please forgive those who’ve trespassed against you. It was those other guys, those reckless Doorkeepers of times past. We, however aren’t like those other guys. We hope to make your wildest dreams come true. BTW , we wish we still had that 30 bucks too.
So excited to find you! I was late to the game, but when I finally found you, I loved you. I submitted a piece in 2007, and you printed it! I was thrilled! Then you disappeared. I kept checking back, and now, here you are! YAY!!! Godspeed, New Crew!
