Moral Contradictions

Wait, there's more to Christianity than just abortion?

From Yahoo, "Christians take on might of US religious right".

"We are here because we can no longer stand by and watch people speak hatred, division, war and greed in the name of our faith," said Patrick Mrotek, founder of the Christian Alliance for Progress...

..."The religious right has been extremely successful in taking control of the language of our faith and using it to promote an extreme and divisive political agenda," said the Reverend Timothy Simpson, director of religious affairs at the Christian Alliance for Progress.

"We think that most Americans, especially people of faith, are ready to hear from Christians who are tolerant, and who understand the many ways that our faiths impact our views of public life," he said.

Amen. I'm glad I'm not the only one who is a Christian yet is turned off (or sometimes flat-out rejected) by hard-line Christians.
