Censorship & The Religious Right
Editorial Comment by Bill:
In our newsletters we often reprint from other sources news and opinion related to sexuality, relationships and other moral and social issues, some quite controversial. Often we make no comment on these reprinted articles. While the views we try to clearly state in our own articles may help the reader determine what reprinted opinions we do and do not support, reprinting without comment should not be construed as an endorsement or a criticism of these opinions, but rather as an attempt to inform and stir up thinking and dialog on important issues.

As with the news items that follow, we sometimes reprint items that are critical of Fundamentalist Christianity or the "religious right". We want to make it clear that in doing so we are not implying criticism of the total spiritual perspective of this branch of Christianity nor of the individuals within it. We only seek to bring into the open the failure of "conservative" Christianity to adequately understand and articulate serious issues of spirituality and morality, especially as they relate to sexuality.

Much of "liberal" Christianity can also be criticized, especially for its failure to understand "personal faith", in its zeal for such issues as social justice.

Were it not for the efforts of both conservative and liberal Christians, however misguided and legalistic both have been, especially in the areas of political and social reform and many works of mercy (medical care, for example), the world we live in would be a much worse place. ("Let him who is without sin cast the first stone.")

The Christian Coalition Dangerous to Your Freedom
"The two greatest failures in sociological America are the churches and the families. Any institution that must go to the government for enforcement of its mores and dogma admits failure to win the hearts and minds of this country's citizens. The self-styled Christian Coalition, another creature of the power-grabbing Pat Robertson, while deploring the large role of government in our lives, asks government to macromanage our spiritual lives according to the minority fundamentalist dogma the coalition finds its own congregations failing to follow. Christianity, like charity, begins at home". - William C. Meazel, letter to editor, U.S. News & World Report 6/12/95

So many people are leaving the Church so they can find God. More often than not church doctrine, not biblical Christianity, is more of a hindrance than a help for those on their spiritual paths. So people seek God and yet often just find man's tradition and rules in Christianity. No wonder they turn to more fulfilling direct spiritual paths to God such as many New Age teachings and others whose ideas seem much more spiritual and less man's silly rules. Again, these rules have no biblical basis and people flee Christianity for the wrong reasons. So many people are leaving the church so they can find God
