Degenerate Christianism

Andrew Sullivan:
It's staggering really that modern American Christianism supports wealth while Jesus demanded total poverty, fetishizes family while Jesus left his and urged his followers to abandon wives, husbands and children, champions politics while Jesus said his kingdom was emphatically not of this world, defends religious war where Jesus sought always peace, and backs torture, which is what the Romans did to Jesus.

At some point these charlatans need to be chased out of the temple. Which these days means the Republican party.

Very well put! Thanks for sharing it Russ!

Pretty much why I've written off organized religion. Of course I was raised episcopalian, and I think mom and dad always looked forward to breakfast after more than the service itself, so I didn't have far to fall.
