Highest Ranking…Fool?

Posted in Christ and Culture,Government & Politics by sosipater on March 13, 2007

How is that for a provacative and politically incorrect title?  Well, congressman Pete Stark from, no jokes here, California does not believe in a “supreme being”.  Ok.  Here is the story.  (No jokes about readers of the L.A. Times either)  Telling quote here:

“When the Secular Coalition asked me to complete a survey on my religious beliefs, I indicated I am a Unitarian who does not believe in a supreme being,” Stark said. “Like our nation’s founders, I strongly support the separation of church and state. I look forward to working with the Secular Coalition to stop the promotion of narrow religious beliefs in science, marriage contracts, the military and the provision of social services.”

Unitarian Universalism describes itself as creedless, meaning that it has no underlying authoritative statement of religious belief. Some members believe in God; others do not.

I’m of the belief that if churches don’t tighten up on doctrine, beliefs, confessions, etc., this kind of nondescript, ho-hum attitute about God will increase… in churches!

Is this the first of many professions like this?  Time will tell. 

Psalm 14:1

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.
