.................right here amidst the bible belt today I watched a really touching "Jesus Ad." Yes sport's fans the church is having to resort to TV commercials in the southern United States. I'm in east Tennessee. The church supported infant baptism for a thousand years. When most of the public rejected the concept that an innocent child might go to hell they stopped. The scripture is still there. They hunted, tortured and murdered witches for thousands of years but when the general population found out there was no such thing as witchcraft...they stopped doing harm to innocent young women. The scripture is still there. The church supported and sometimes accomodated slavery for more than 5000 years but when it was no longer in the vogue they stopped. The scripture is still there. The bible is written with the submission of women as a sub plot. The church supported that for thousands of years but about the time the civil rights act was passed in 1965 they shut up about it. The scripture is still there. Gays have never been accepted by any church. They have been placed at the bottom of civilized mankind's totem pole but recently some churches have supported inviting them into their congregations. The scripture is still there. To anyone who is so thick that they cannot see that the church will do or say anything in order to keep folks dropping around on Sunday mornings...I'm sorry for you.
