from blogging it is quite likely because I am busy over at Sojourner’s God’s Politics Blog. I have been busy on a couple of threads over there, and will post some of my comments here (before their moderator delets any more of them!) for safe-keeping.
I read and comment there because I like their focus on Social Justice, but am frustrated by their employment of state mechanisms to achieve what I believe to be the peculiar mandate to the church. I find it cowardly and irresponsible to say the poor or the needy, “Sorry but I gave at the (tax) office.” Look, I pay my taxes, Jesus commands me to do so, but I just don’t expect them to do any good, and I think that was His point.
