A great people deserve their rights: Hello, Talibangelicals and Catholics? | AMERICAblog

Great points here from AMERICAblog. The Far Right element in the Religious community has completely lost their way. They have no clue anymore what it means to be "Christian." They don't care about helping, just maintaining their power and status.

They clearly have no intention of living like Christ:
"I'm having a big problem with the focus of some churches. Has anyone told some of the religious right and Catholic Church members that times are tough, and people need help? While they continue to waste massive amounts of resources on supporting right wing politics, people are homeless and children go hungry.

Fortunately, there are churches, like the two little open and affirming to the LGBT community UCC churches I attend in the Tulsa area, who focus on things like feeding the homeless, local HIV/AIDS ministries and the 'Food 4 Kids Backpack' program where we deliver backpacks of food to local elementary schools so children who are 'food insecure' do not go hungry. Whatever the reason, some kids are not being fed properly by their parents. I don't care why they aren't being fed, but I feel like one hungry child in the United States is ONE CHILD TOO MANY!"
