I Like Your Christ, But ...

Hey thanks for blogging by. One of my old childhood buds, another PK with the same (former) dubious PS distinction ... oh, for the uninitiated, PK=Preacher's Kid, and PS=Prodigal Son ... well, we were having this long talk, rambling on and on, discussing extraordinarily long, run-on sentences, and ...

LOL, no, just kidding. We were Facebook chatting and talking about having been raised in stiflingly strict, stodgy, very religious homes, going (forced to go) several days every week to very religious churches, both of us living in parsonages under intense scrutiny by the 'religious flock' and, well, here we go again with the run-on sentences, but ...

Vern, my ol' buddy from back in the day, figured if there wasn't one already, it'd be great to have a blog for PK's. And also for anyone else who loves Jesus and His true teachings of unconditional, nonjudgmental, all encompassing Love, but can't stand organized religion. So here it is, folks. This blog is where you can come, read and comment, you can rave and rant all you want, share war stories of how the church crippled you with its falacious misrepresentations of what Jesus was and is all about, you can share with others how finding the True Way happened in your life, you may feel free to suggest topics for The Old Silly to post about, and as you can see, you are more than welcome to write lengthy, run-on sentences. My editor's cap is on the shelf, ok?

So. Gonna let you go, no rants, upliftings, or sermons to deliver, just a good kick-off post. Leave a comment, if'n yeruva mindta, ahd shorely 'preciater, yasser.

Before you leave, here's the rest of the quote for today:

"I like your Christ very much. But I don't much care for your Christians."

Somehow, I think that Jesus would agree with the Mahatma, hmm?
