'What do you think about Western civilization, Mr. Ghandi?'
'I think it would be a good idea.'
That joke's crux is what I DON'T like about Christianity. I don't like the way it allows people to not think. I don't like the way it's used to ENCOURAGE people to not think- which is in no way what Yeshua ben Yosef taught.
Sometimes, I think of the shortest verse of the bible when I read about the exploits of these enemies of personal freedom and self-worth swathing themselves in the cloak of religious authority.
What's the shortest verse in the Bible, you ask?
With thanks to rfrancis for drawing my attention to this.
