Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
Good point, Jerry...

The problem I think is that at the moment the Christian Right has the microphone. PLus they are louder and they are less tolerant. Makes it tough for the majority of Christian who don't where thewir religion on their sleeve to compete but why compete anyway because to compete would mean that we would have to politicize our Faith. Once you have done that, you've lost...

But it's looking as if the Christian Left is going to have to at least stand up and be counted, just as we were during the civil rights movement and anti-war movement. I have been giving this a lot of thought recently and am not too sure how we can do this without being confrontational. There are so many folks on thre other side who are running on the ragged edge of becoming violent. Lots of anger. This is what I don't underestand. People who turn it over to the Lord ain't 'sposed to be so danged angry and intolerant...

One thing I do know is that the Christian Left has to spend a lot more time in the New Testament and read the wods of Jesus, who IMO, wouldn't be too happy with many of thre folks on the other side. Those folks don't seem to ever talk about Jesus's words? Hmmmmmm?
