Such charity in thee,“Rev” Ken. A great preacher once noted that “you don’t have to be a dummy or a numbskull to be a fool.” Now we know.<quoted text>
If you would take a bit of your precious time to learn something about the origins and mythology of the common origins of the ancient Teachings, you would know something more than just Christian thought about itself.
This has absolutely nothing at all to do with either atheism or "new age."
Bill Maher? Weapons?
Paranoid Fundamentalist Catholicism at it worst.
Those Liberal Churches in which you are entombed have strayed so far from orthodoxy that their members feel that their church left them. Universally, the Liberal Churches are losing members in droves. Bang up job your’re doing there,“Rev.” Ken! No wonder they turn to Catholicism or evangelical alternatives.
It is those "mainline churches" that have deviated from the spirit of the 16th Century Reformers. Sometimes, one cannot distinguish Liberal Churcher views from the Democratic National Committee’s handbook, save for the “Christian” veneer with which they anoint their leftist agenda. What’s next? Jesus was just a barefoot Marxist?(See Jeremiah Wright!)
But, above all, dearest “Reverend”, the crux of it all: Is your Christian community adhering to the commands of the Gospel proclaimed by Jesus and properly interpreted by the Scriptures? No more questions to ask.
