"Do You Have To Be RIGHT To Be Religious?"

Blog or Website
Presbyterian Minister and Blogger Rev. Bill asks the above question and makes this point on his blog:


"It seems that everywhere I turn these days I get the feeling that unless I am politically right wing I can not be Christian. My exchange of ideas with PBS Watcher this week made me feel he was not so much interested in reading what I had to write as he was interested in belittling me because I did not agree with him. This is a pattern I see in the "religious right" -- they feel that their opinions are the only ones for Christians to have...

This is a shame, because I believe we can all have different opinions -- God can speak to us in different ways -- and we can still all be faithful Christians. In fact, I doubt if some people would be faithful to how God has spoken to them if they follow what I believe. I know I would not be faithful to what God has spoken to me if I follow what some others believe."

Thanks for the link! I appreciate your visiting my blog. It's hard to find p[rogressive Christians these days! O -- and it's Rev Bill -- Rev Mike has a homeletical hash house near Charlotte -- we are both Presbyterians (though have never offically met). That might have caused the confusion. His url is http://blog.revmike.us/

D'oh! (he says slapping his forehead) sorry for the typo, that serves me right for blogging late while tired. Thanks for the mention on your blog today, and I'll keep checking it out...and I'll add you to our blogroll here...

Not a problem. Mike at http://blog.revmike.us/ is younger, much better looking, smarter and wittier than I -- so it was indeed a compliment!
