  •  "...stay out of my church!" The very words of JC ! (3+ / 0-)

    Try as I might, I can't find the story of how Jesus started a church, then appointed these religious bigots clowns, or Fox News to be Sargent at Arms.

    The actual J. Christ of biblical notoriety pretty much went out of his way to include all people. People who in this day and age (and his, too) were considered lower than "us." Tax collectors, the lady at the well, Zacchaeuss, the criminal executed on the next cross over, just about anyone.

    Nothing says "I understand religious freedom" like "stay out of my church."
    I'm inclined to think that J's only real explosion of righteous indignation, the thrashing of the money changers, might be applied to Fox, most Christianists, and the bulk of Republican politicians, should he happen by.

    I think that Republicanism is revealing itself as a personality disorder, not so much an ideology." -- Naomi Klein

      We cannot call ourselves a civilised society if we refuse to protect the weakest among us.

        bumper sticker slogan with the little 'Calvin pissin' on a Ford/Chevy/whatever' decals I still see around here (usually on pickup truck back windows).

      (not too long after St.Paul converted)  wondering why Christian churches were all so big on buildings. Everything in the Gospels seems to be contrary to edifices.
