...if this movement actually took off. Then Christianity could actually become a force for good in the world!

It would be totally cool. It was one of many topics a pastor & I were discussing over a beer tonight. (Yes, you read that right.) There are many people who take the words written in red- the ones Jesus' said- seriously. You won't see them headlining the news, but they are there, working as a force for good in the world.

Just a few of the organizations founded, run, and /or staffed by Christian volunteers of the non-flashy variety, living out the words in red: Sharing & Caring Hands. The Simpson Shelter. Meals on Wheels. Habitat for Humanity.

And remember the well-deserved bad press the government got for their poor response to hurricaine relief efforts? Well, UMCOR- a church relief organization- just earned an award and grant for long-term efforts in flood relief. These are people from - gasp- mainstream religion- walking the walk, not just talking, not just writing out checks, and doing it in a rather organized fashion.

It's too bad that the legalistic, clinic-bombing, gay-bashing posers hijacked the name "Christian". Talk about some difficult people to love. Perhaps we should mark their bibles with the words that Jesus' said circled & underlined with a Sharpie, and drew little stars next to the main ideas "Love your neighbor as yourself", and "Get the log outta your eye before you try to get the toothpick out of someone elses'"...
