If I Were a Christian

Daily Kos’ DarkSyde has posted a rather poetic essay titled If I were a Christian. It echoes most of my own thoughts on the subject, only it’s written far more eloquently than I’ve ever been able to. It basically spells out the hypocrisy and moral vacuity of the religious right, and serves as a reminder that what Jesus actually taught is a good thing. The world would be a better place if more people actually lived by his teachings, instead of the way most self-identified “Christians” live.

DarkSyde has previously written another pair of excellent essays titled Why I’m an Atheist and What It’s Like to be an Atheist, both worth mentioning here.
