Religious Left by mhari

It's about time!

Finally someone is getting it together to let everyone know that the Religious Right does not speak for all the Christians in America. Check it out:

Sign the Jacksonville Declaration of the Christian Alliance.

I especially love their attempt to extrapolate what Jesus would say, according to the Religious Right:

"You are strong and powerful; your ideals are noble. Make war to spread those ideals."
"The end is near - So it doesn't matter what you do to my Father's creation."
"Heal the sick - Provided they can pay."
"All are welcome at the table - As long as they are the same as we are."
"Follow me - And help me form a government to force others to follow."

Good stuff. I really hope these folks can get off the ground. At any rate, I'm just happy to see them speaking up.
