When I cannot write a blog article for you, I always try to refer you to the best written items I can find among the works of other writers. While surfing the Internet tonight, I ran into a real gem written more than 20 years ago. The author is Bruce Bawer, and it is Chapter 1 in a book entitled Stealing Jesus: How Christian Fundamentalism Betrays Christianity. This chapter is just as true, up-to-date, and insightful as it was when it was first written, and it plainly shows many of the key problems with Christian fundamentalism and conservative evangelicalism in the United States. I would classify this item as a must read.
The print is small, so you will need to engage the ZOOM feature on your computer to read it. The easiest way to do that is to hold down the Control Key on your keyboard, keep it held down, and press the + Plus Key as many times as needed to bring the article into comfortable print size. When you are finished, just press the Control Key again, keep it held down, and press the – Minus Key the same number of times that you did the + Plus Key. That should get you back to where you started.
