When you're an authoritarian shitheel, "Fear" trumps "Love", all the time!
No thanks! Jesus & The Divine should be LOVED, not FEARED!
No wonder your form of the Faith is going down the tubes. The Gospel of Love and a Loving God is faaaarrrr more effective than "Fire & Brimstone".
Barabban churches (CoGC, UPCI, LDS, IBC, SBC, AoG, etc.), are wrong! Christian churches (ECUSA, PCUSA, ELCA, MCC, PNBC, etc.) are right!
To be a Christian is to be loving, kind, humble, charitable, forgiving, not hateful or bigoted.
I may be a NeoPagan but I have a VERY DEEP RESPECT for genuine Christianity and Jesus himself. Jesus was cool.
