The glaciality of Christianity

Christian churches always seem agonizing centuries behind the common sense of genuinely humanistic people.

They supported slavery during the 19th century in the US, pointing as ever to the Bible to say it was God’s will that blacks be enslaved.

They supported state laws against blacks and whites marrying, and it took a Supreme Court case, in the 1970’s if I recall correctly, to nullify all of those bigoted state laws.

And now it’s the anti-gay push, and once again the Bible is trotted out and selectively quoted and misinterpreted, as it always is.

Wouldn’t it be refreshing if they would just WAKE THE FUCK UP and be more like Christ in every way?

How long, o Lord, how long?
