Is the United States a "Christian" Nation?

December 1, 2004

(archived broadcast )
And what about Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, athiests, agnostics, Unitarians, Catholics who care more about the poor than abortion or homosexuality, non-fundamentalist Protestants, those who are not born again, those who spend more time at football games than church, and those who prefer “Baywatch” over the “Passion of the Christ”? What about gays and lesbians? What about single mothers?
Are we merely guests in a fundamentalist Christian America that, at best, tolerates our heresy?

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.

    “Blessed is the man…his delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law (Word) he meditates day and night.” Psalm 1.1-2
    “Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning.” Lamentations

    Oh Gordon and you are so true to form as well. Sorry if I burst your bubble. But you better hang onto those coconuts.
    Love the poem!
    Again, Happy Birthday! I do hope you are celebrating in style!

    Distantless Journey
    Be not deceived
    by illusions of despair.
    Doubt along the way
    will come and go,
    to go and come again.
    Forget not
    once this journey is begun,
    the end is certain.
    No one can fail to do
    what is appointed for them to do.
    When you walk with him,
    with his word upon your heart,
    behind each illusion
    is the reality of God.
    Travel an instant further
    on the road where all illusions end.
    Now! You are just a step away
    from that ancient door
    that leads beyond the world
    to the Holy of Holies

    Vicky–you are so true to form–try to thump away the protrusion if you can with sly innuendo and feminine, castrative techniques–even, if I don’t have the will–I still have plenty of coconuts that can induce involutary response with a priapistic stamina.
