This article left me shaking my head. I’ve met Jay Sekulow in person years ago and he seems like a sincere guy, but his stand against so many things borders on obsessive. I’m not even sure if he agreed completely with his callers.

But one thing is true – Christianity (at least among the lines of Augustine and Calvin) allows no inner-goodness in humans. Buddhism teaches that good and bad spring forth from people. The Christian scapegoat is “I was born this way because God curses Adam for disobeying Him” (not Satan as some atheists would have you believe).

But if you can replace this toxic Christian theology with a better one that gives credence to both aspects of human nature, then perhaps there wouldn’t be do big an issue. The problem is Christian fundamentalism and evangelicalism as a whole.

I side with the Buddhists.
