Christianity has been hijacked in the bible belt. Have you noticed this where you live?Submitted by fergmx1 on Tue, 05/19/2009 - 12:49
It does not matter if you believe in it or not, there is no doubt the christian faith has been twisted into a megaphone for war propaganda. I live in what is known as the "bible belt" in central Alabama. 99.9% of people here call themselves christians and there is literally a church on every street corner. Yesterday I am picking my 4 year old son up from his daycare at a local church (not the one we attend on Sunday) and as I closed the door to his room I saw what was on the outside of it and almost passed out.(really I got dizzy) Staring me dead in the face was a life size picture of Jesus on the cross with American flags and red, white, and blue everywhere around him. Across the top above his head the caption said " The first soldier that never came home"
Please dont turn this into an endless debate about religon, I am curious if its this bad everywhere or if we are getting targeted because of where we live. This is wrong no matter what religon or faith is used and this is only one example of many as I could go on for days about how bad it is. Here church has been turned into a high school popularity contest all about million dollar megachurches that look like six flags over Jesus. I am almost 30 years old and it was not always this way.
Thanks for any feedback
