Moral Outrage

What passes for Christianity

Millions of Americans claim to follow Jesus. Some even claim that we are a Christian nation. Yet every generation seems to crucify Christ all over again, to nail him to the cross and parade him through the streets with a crown of thorns on his head.

What passes for Christianity is often not the genuine article. Most often, a perverted version of Christianity gives the appearance of moral credence to war and conquest.

We have a responsibility to the truth, to justice, the earth, and toward one another that must supersede all else, if we are the moral beings we purport to be. That is why each of us is endowed with a conscience. We must decide right and wrong for ourselves and struggle against the swift current of public opinion more often than not.

Within the religious hierarchy, oftentimes the high priests of fraud are treated like deities with a direct conduit to god, entitled to power and privileges that ordinary citizens do not have. They are no better than fortune tellers dressed in bright robes.

Once again they have diverted the masses from the real path to salvation and led them astray. They have made a mockery of humankind’s quest for understanding and justice.

It was they who, in the words of song writer Woody Guthrie, “laid poor Jesus in his grave”. They do it every time.

—Charles Sullivan, social justice activist

WHICH THE BIBLE FORETOLD THAT HE WOULD GATHER HIS PEOPLES FROM EVERY TRIBE KINGDOM, WALK. FELLOWSHIP NATION. BROTHERHOOD TALK ANND TONGUE. THAT HIS KINGDOM WAS NO PART OF THIS WORLD BUT ALSO THAT HIS KINGDOM WOULD BE ESTABLISHED IN THE PRESENSE OF HIS ENEMIES. AND THAT IT WOULD HAVE NO BEGINNING OR END. ALSO THE WE SHOULD DO UNTO OTHERS AS THEY WOULD DO UNTO US. BUT THAT WAS NOT LIMITED TO TO RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS EITHER. BECAUSE BEFORE HE BECAME A MAN AND WAS SACRIFICED HE WAS GOD AND WAS WITH GOD AND WOULD BECOME GOD BOTH IN THE SPIRIT AS WELL AS THE FLESH.

  2. […] His enemies call him a tyrant and a dictator, but he is neither. Hugo Chavez is a tireless champion of the poor and a committed Christian socialist. The only difference between Chavez’s type of […]
