Still dealing with a damaged throat, it sucks but here’s another episode. Shorter than I’m used to doing but I’m working within my limitations.
In this episode I tell the story of the Cleansing of the Temple, my favorite biblical story. Now I’m a non-believer but this story has such a clear and “good” ethic to it that I can’t help but love it. It has a clear anti-capitalistic message and shows Jesus at his angriest, which I also appreciate greatly.
I tell this story in order to lead in to, what I see, as perfectly valid criticism of modern American pseudo-Christians, their leaders and their practices.
This is the first of a little mini-series dissecting some particularly toxic strains of ideology present in many so-called Christian denominations today.
Coming soon will be Dominionism and the “Southern Strategy”.
