A Couple of Beyond Strange Bedfellows: This conversation is becoming more ridiculous by the day. Now, it seems, so-called Liberal and/or Progressive “Christians,” are plugging the anti-religious and anti-Christian ideology and worldview of Dawkins and Harris. It seems Bishop John Shelby Spong, an Episcopalian fellow who has famously rejected every historical and orthodox aspect of Theism and Christianity (yet, for some strange reason, still refers to himself as a Christian) is now suggesting that fellows like Dawkins and Harris are helpful to him as he tries to vainly establish his own “Christian Church wherein everyone knows that God does not exist.” Wait. Are you confused? Well, you should be. Hey Spong … your Church is collapsing! You should really concern yourself with it, instead of unnecessarily incurring the wrath of secular atheists who you foolishly think will buy your religion while they join you in the brushing of us “infantile” believers in Jesus as Savior aside. What a pretentious bunch of hacks. Do any of you seriously think any of this will work in the everyday market place, where people actually work 50 hours a week for a living? Talk about the blind leading the blind.
