I almost caved
I came this close to commenting again at The Village Gate today... I had a subject and first sentence typed before I stopped myself.
What prompted my almost-off-the-wagon episode? This line by another commenter:
the Christian Right is pursuing a fear-based and extremist socio-political agenda that they're attempting to put a veneer of respectability on by cloaking it in religion.
Who exactly constitutes "the Christian Right"?
What exactly is a fear-based agenda?
What exactly is an extremist agenda?
Whatever those things are, they must be very, very bad; how does cloaking them in religion make them respectable?
Do words mean anything anymore?
