  •  Another example of codifying and spin (none)
    This is a great example of another codified word.  "Christian."  It has seeped into our subconscious that "Christian" is synonymous with narrow-minded, sanctimonious individuals spewing hate from the pulpit, trumpeting morality while trolling for hookers while nobody's looking.  Why is this?  Because the most vocal claimants to the word have been the worst examples of it.  Moderate Christians need to stand up and challenge these poor examples of their faith and say, "How dare you call yourself a Christian when you don't espouse the most basic tenets of Jesus' teachings?"

    That church and state intermingling another poster mentioned is starting to happen.  Fundamentalist Christians are starting to be the tools of the state that they are trying to influence.  When your church gets into my state, my state will get into your church.  It's like a Reese's cup, only without the chocolate.
