Church and Christian organization contracts/covenants are one big fat con job and you, lowly person, are the one who is being conned.
Personally, it’s been kind of fun to watch the evolution of the Wartburg ladies; I don’t believe for an instant they would have written that sentence when they started out. Somewhere in Nietzsche, probably The Antichrist, there is a great observation to the effect that you don’t know how rotten Christianity actually is till you’ve been close to it. Point! to Friedrich, then.
