"Attack upon 'Christendom' "

We are, the fundamentalists and right wing politicians insist upon reminding us, a 'Christian' nation.

And yet, in all four of the Gospels, I cannot find one instance of Jesus condemning prostitutes; or, for that matter, prostitution. He was, in fact, frequently condemned for spending so much time with them, which hardly showed the proper condemnation of their "profession."

But then, I suppose, Jesus wasn't fighting AIDS.
