Religion an Ugly Thing!

The ugliness of religion- "Too often, though, religion worships and serves that which has nothing to do with Him, worships money and serves politics, worships charisma and serves ego, worships intolerance and serves self."

A line from the movie Oh, God!, with George Burns as the deity and John Denver as the grocery store manager reluctantly recruited to spread The Word:

''I don't even go to church,'' says the manager.

And God says, "Neither do I.''

And neither are a lot of other people!

This is a revisit of an earlier post on the recent surveys about the attitude of people in US to religion, church affiliation. Read Leonard Pitts article.

Pastors, we have our work cut out for us!
