You know what I am tired of? I'm tired of Christianity getting a free pass when we blow it because of our claimed 'theology' of forgiveness. It's become a lived into reality that we (Christians) can be some real jerks (edited for the orignal word I used, for those with sensitive ears), and just move on with a simple apology in the name of our faith. We conjure up some weak theology mumbo-jumbo, and viola! ...our slate is clean! Like magic!

I call bull-dooky.

But I can only call it because Jesus, my rabbi, did first. If you seek his most brutal teachings, his most harsh rhetoric, his most direct critiques - they weren't to those who didn't believe, but to those who did.

The religious were called out for their false pietyfor their public displays of self-importance, and their preferential treatment of their own kind. BY JESUS. 

Oh, its in there kiddos... it's all in there.

 

Refreshing that finally a Christian actually knows a little thing or two about his own holy book.  Corporate Randian Jesus is a complete fabrication by the evangelical movement.  As I've said for years, American conservatism (including libertarianism) is incompatible with biblical Jesus.
