Pharisee Watch

I really like Religious Right Watch, a most excellent blog, especially after this post: The least Jesus asks is not what the Religious Right asks.

I agree with sum-up: What is the Christian morality behind a system designed to limit an individual's ability to fulfill Jesus' mandates? I'll tell you: a misguided one more obedient to the societal conservatism and scapegoating at the heart of Religious Right political movement than to the words of Jesus of Nazareth.

Like I've tried to say many times... so many Christians seem to just miss the point. In the tradition I grew up in, I think so many people focus on the "Southern" rather than the "Baptist".
