Larded Layity; Porky Pastorate!
Still no notice taken how the Supreme Court just liberated the churches
in the Citizens United ruling. God made the Jews wander forty years until all the slaves died in the wilderness. Then came
free people into the promised land. You just can’t give freedom to slaves, neither can you give Christ to an idolater.
God told them they were sacrificing to Egyptian idols in their wanderings forty years, not to him. Now the gift of freedom
to shout about abortion and antiChristian policies during the days and weeks leading to election has been bestowed on the
church from on high.
What does the church do? If only, like the daughter in True Lies, “How
lame?” of the court’s gift would the church cry out, then, at least the gift is acknowledged. Worse than an ingrate,
the church is oblivious, not recognizing the gift.
Contented bloated fat churches let the culture spin away into debauchery
with hardly a protest. Corpulent churches are silenced by tyranny over their political speech in effect fifty years. Fat churches
have let their flaming political oratorical muscle atrophy. Chunky churches exist to entertain and flatter. Harsh political
conflict, that can make a difference and exercise away the blubber, is shunned by America’s rotund rectors.
This current crop of fat ministers is no more to be blamed than the Jews
leaving Egypt. The pastors who knelt to receive Lyndon Johnson’s muzzle of national communion bear the greater blame.
But shouldn’t the next generations have shown at least the resistance to know when the muzzle has been removed? We the
church are just pathetic. Pass the potatoes. Forgive the abortions. Ignore the corruption. Oh, and don't fight back
when the political elite denigrate you and your congregation and blaspheme Jesus. Have a pork chop.
