Better Angels

"...all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature." ---Abraham Lincoln, First Innaugural Address

Right Christians

I know I do a lot of what seems like Christian-bashing here, so it might be easy to assume that I myself am not a Christian. I am, in fact, a committed Episcopalian. I was confirmed this summer, after leaving the Roman Catholic church I was raised in.

It's the Christian Right I unapologetically "bash," as I can not stand their perversion of Christ's message. Christianity has been co-opted by these lunatics and the Christian Left has been marginalized. So it was with great pleasure that I read about Church Folks for a Better America. They state:

We grieve that our nation is not standing for “liberty and justice for all,” nor treating Iraqis as we would be treated. We believe that accountability begins at home, that wise leaders know their mistakes, and that honest leaders admit them. Fear and resentment will never guide us to a just and lasting peace. Any nation that hopes to be “under God” must live for a positive vision of world community, not a blind response to terrorism that tragically makes others see us as if we were terrorists ourselves.

CBFA is currently raising funds to place an anti-war ad in a major newspaper. Drop by and give if you can, and help give the Christian Left a voice again.
