Now this is my kinda guy! “Spiritual arrogance” is exactly the problem we’re dealing with here. I would also call it spiritual elitism. “I have the answers and I believe this way, so I’m going to Heaven…and you are not.” To which I can only respond:
Are ya 100% sure about that?
Whatever happened to “Judge ye not”?
Enjoy your fairy tales, asshole. 🙂
Sharing his views on gays and lesbians in the church, the role of religion in public policy and whether non-Christians can go to heaven, Gene Robinson, the Episcopal Churchs first openly gay bishop, conducted an adult faith forum Sunday at Episcopal Church of the Advent in Louisville.
“I know Jesus to be the son of God,” he told a group of about 50 people, “but what a small, limited God we would have if that was the only manifestation. I think Christians should stay away from spiritual arrogance and show more love, mercy and zeal for justice.”
He called on audience members to present an alternative to the activism of the religious right, saying, “I believe that theres a positive role for religion in the world, and weve already seen what not to do.”
