They’re followers of a political religion that embraces elitism, disdains democracy, and pursues power for its members the better to “advance the Kingdom.” They say they’re working for Jesus, but their Christ is a power-hungry, inside-the-Beltway savior not many churchgoers would recognize.
Scarily, probably more “church”goers would recognize this political Jesus than salon.com knows.
But one quote that jumped out at me was this complaint from the pastor of North Congregational United Church of Christ, in Columbus, Ohio:
Is there public worship? Is it open to the public? Are there trained leaders who serve the church? C Street really has none of those marks that make it a church.
I wonder where he got those three marks as the marks of a (true) church? Well, at least he knows there’s three!
Let the ranting begin!
