A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

"You've got to stand for something...: or you'll fall for anything" is the title of a country music song by Aaron Tippin. I was reminded of that when I saw this article on The Wall Street Journal's Houses of Worship feature today. While the article is an interesting account of a mystery writer's quest for "spirituality," the following paragraph shocked me (though it probably shouldn't have):


Although she calls herself a Christian now, Ms. Barr acknowledges that she might not be so considered by other Christians, since she sees Jesus (like Buddha and others) as a prophet to be emulated rather than as the one true son of God. But she says her fellow Episcopalians in Mississippi are comfortable with her position. "They're very open-minded about people thinking about and questioning things. I talked to my priest, and he said, 'If you come to church and you pray, you're a Christian. Period.' " [emphasis added]


What the heck are they teaching in seminary nowadays? It really doesn't take a whole heck of a lot to be a Christian. Really, it doesn't. But now even that appears too much for some Episcopal priest in Mississippi.
