Published January 30, 2022 by Nan Mykel

Keith Wilson (musingsofanoldfart) refers us thusly to :  an interesting post by a minister named John Pavlovitz. He has one of the best blogs on religion and everyday life. Keith

“if Conservatives are going to declare a holy war on writings that are somehow dangerous to young minds or potentially harmful to society, they’re going to need to reckon with the true and full legacy of the Christian Scriptures: the inhumanity, violence, and sexual immorality that accompany the teachings of mercy, compassion, and justice.

“They’re going to need to be honest about its patriarchs with hundreds of wives and concubines, with unpunished sexual assault, with the slaughtering of entire cities in the name of God, with thousands of words used since its distribution to perpetuate bigotry and intolerance….”

and much more, on Rev. John’s site…Thanks for the referral, Keith…
