A big answer for many Christians is no one, Thank GOD!

GOD gave us brains and expects us to use them. We need no Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell or James Dobson to tell us what we think.

But they are very, very good at what they do. Like most con-men and hucksters, they are remarkably successful at pitching their snake-oil.

Re: a spokesperson
Thanks but certainly not warranted.

The things I say are not that unusual. There are many other Christians right here in EvCland that say exactly the same things.

The key point is that independant critical thinking and the type of mass distributed dogma represented by the 700 Club are diametric opposites. The 700 Club is designed to answer all your questions. The approach of many Christians is that one should question all your answers.

Christianity is a belief. It's a Faith. And it is a personal relationship between the individual and GOD.

There are many folk out there today saying pretty much the same thing. You can find one such organization at The Christian Aliance for Progress.

Pro-family values
Gay marriage is an example of Christ-like behavior. How is the Christian right wing supporting it?

Christian Family Values
Same sex marriage is simply one thing on the list of pro-family values of the right Christian. Others on the Christian pro-family values list are abortion rights, condoms in the schools, sex-education in EVERY school and so on.
