One of the constant critiques that is off base is that the conservative Churches are political and responding to "outside forces".
Why does the Anglican Church have a Commissioner for "social justice"? This term is a communist codeword. Sorry, but this critique is pure insanity as liberation theology itself is a Marxist attempt to subvert whole denominations.
The Anglican bishop from NYC complained based on conjecture that her peers "beat their wives". Perhaps the comment was made in the notion of probability that in any large gathering of men a certain percentage will beat their spouses.
The NY Sun pointed out that in NYC Anglican church membership is down 4%. One can go to a Church and hear sermons on the UN and recycling. The job of a house of worship is generally the spiritual needs of its members. What does recycling have to do with those needs?
I want to point out my disgust when I was forced to listen to far left BS at a reformed Temple. The absurd claim that Vegetarianism is Judaic is odd considering
there are whole sections of the Old Testament that deal with what animals you can eat and sacrafice. The rest of the sermon was on global warming which also has nothing to
do with Judaic worship.
One can joke about the more conservative preachers having the nerve to talk about scripture in a house of worship. Who put the scripture in the sermon... Oh wait wasn't that what we were supposed to be talking about in the first place before leftist clowns grabbed the pulpit.
I imagine myself as a thinking if an actual sermon was read the members might react with "who put the Torah or the Talmud in the weekly sermon?". Sorry the leftist critics of the conservative Churches fail to grasp that those Churches do talk about scripture as if it were quaint. I also have not witnessed Conservative Churhes knowingly violating immigration law or sections dealing with private individuals engaing in foreign policy.
This critique of the left is BS.
