Selectively Fundamentalist...

I just posted a different political cartoon on my other blog. As I said there: forgive me. I'm truly not "anti-Republican." And I'm really tired of politics. The "Right" is just getting the brunt of my ire these days because they are the most overtly manipulative of Christian values. If this was the 1960s or 70s, I'd be going after the Left for their selling out to a completely Social Gospel, synonymous with the Democratic Party's political platform.

But I digress...

Shane Claiborne writes in The Irresistible Revolution about "selective fundamentalists" who pick and choose what to be fundamentalist about.

He contrasts this with a wealthy German businessman he met in India, who sold everything he owned and went to live and work with Mother Teresa in Calcutta. THAT's the kind of fundamentalist I pray to be...

...but God help me: my apartment is comfy and my car is an `05.
