Ladies And Gentlemen: Judaeo-Christian Values

It was the result of having multiple pastors tell me, essentially, the same story about quoting the Sermon on the Mount, parenthetically, in their preaching — "turn the other cheek" — [and] to have someone come up after to say, "Where did you get those liberal talking points?" And what was alarming to me is that in most of these scenarios, when the pastor would say, "I'm literally quoting Jesus Christ," the response would not be, "I apologize." The response would be, "Yes, but that doesn't work anymore. That's weak." And when we get to the point where the teachings of Jesus himself are seen as subversive to us, then we're in a crisis.

We're still going to let them tell us that their religion must determine how we apply laws though, right?

      I can’t agree that they’ve lost the plot. I think that they never had the plot.

      For them, adherence to Jesus’ teachings were just a marriage of convenience. As reflected in their enthusiasm for the Old Testament. Now, it’s no longer convenient, so it’s been abandoned without a second thought. I’m betting without alimony or child support (how woke!) either.
