Default Re: Christianity & The Demise of America

Well, Barbara, it seems you've hit the proverbial nail on the head. It has that Fabian patina to it. Jesus did, in fact, champion the cause of the poor and oppressed. He came for the salvation of the whole world, among other things, and Jesus elucidated the particular hindrances of each kind of social or ethnic group. The rich dragged their materialism around with them. The self-righeous thought they were "OK" already, and so forth. I heed your caveat regarding the apparent reductionism in the article.
