Currently, one of my favorite blogs is the progressive Christian pastor John Pavlovitz’ blog Stuff That Needs to Be Said. There have been so many times I’ve wanted to reblog his wonderful, very readable articles, but alas, his blog features no reblog button. Therefore, I will just provide the link to his latest.
There is so much truth in his posts. Every time I read them, I find myself nodding vigorously in agreement. There is so much I can relate to in them.
The Christian Right has indeed become quite terrifying, as they have weaponized a religion that was intended by its founder to be peaceful and based on love in order to achieve an evil and heartless political agenda based on power and greed. It has become more like a cult than a religion, but sadly, a lot of people are buying it.
