Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
OK, Jim, I haven't studied all the nuances of right-wing Christian theology. Wouldn't want to. But it's more than obvious to me that their triumphalist concept of Christ is not at all like mine. Did I assert more than that?

I *have* a pretty extensive education in theology and church history, as taught in a couple of highly regarded Roman Catholic institutions. As my own personal beliefs developed, I found a small number of fellow-believers within the Catholic Church (such as the aforementioned Berrigan brothers), but couldn't help but notice that most of the people with whom I shared the most basic values were Quakers, Unitarians, Black Protestants of various denominations, beatnik Buddhists, and ~ mostly ~ agnostics/atheists/freethinkers/Deists.
