How about a slow clap for Jim Keller of West Reading, Pennsylvania for an excellent letter to the editor?
I am thinking about converting from agnosticism to Christianity, but I have a question: Am I to understand that as a Christian I can deny basic humanitarian assistance to penniless, homeless refugees from the Middle East, the same part of the world that Jesus called home, as long as I demonstrate proper outrage because Starbucks’ seasonal coffee cup isn’t Christmasy enough?
Yep. That’s how it works now. You also have to call a thrice-married, lying, bigoted presidential candidate a champion of your faith while treating his actual Christian opponent like someone who’s out to persecute you. It’s in the rulebook.
