"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"...doesn't philosophy amount to the sum of all thinkable and unthinkable errors, ceaselessly repeated?"--Jean-Luc Marion

“The opposite of poverty is not wealth; the opposite of poverty is justice."--Bryan Stevenson

Christian Ethics 101

From FeralLiberal at First Draft comes an excellent suggestion. Now if we just had the funds of George Soros to back it up:

"I am sick and tired of (them saying) they somehow have a better understanding of Christianity, of the Judeo-Christian ethic, of values."--John Kerry

I'd like to see a series of billboards across the country with a large picture of the hooded prisoner from Abu-Graib and a caption below it that states:

'Whatever you have done to the least of these my bretheren, you have done it to me.'
Imagine how many "Christians" would be outraged at the suggestion that Muslims and Iraqis be treated as children of God.

It would be worth the outrage it would generate.
