Some Liberals are Christian






Just read a column by Joel McNally who makes the astounding claim that some Liberals describe themselves as Christian. Apparently Mr. McNally feels that the Right Wing and Christianity are too closely tied together, and it's not fair. Poor Liberal Christians.

Of course these same liberal Christians apparently have little problem with ABORTION or with GAY MARRIAGE. Now I go to Sunday School most weeks, and it seems like Christianity has an opinion on those issues.

He also quotes Kurt Vonnegaunt, atheist, on why we don't want the Beatitudes hung in the court room in favor of the Ten Commandments. Well, the Beatitudes aren't law; they are religious statements, relating to our ultimate destiny. The Ten Commandments, on the other hand, are both divinely inspired AND civil laws. So they belong in our courtrooms, while the Beatitudes belong in our hearts. Simple.
