There's something rotten in the 'house of the Lord'

During a daily Mass last week, Pope Francis called ideological Christianity "an illness" that doesn't serve Jesus Christ. Instead, it "frightens" people and pushes them away from religion.

Organized religion overall seems to be an illness - and a control mechanism.

He's right, imo, about Christianity not serving Jesus Christ.

Of course it doesn't. It's a control mechanism that exists to shape and manipulate the thinking of its adherents, in order to control their behavior - and in this way Christianity operates very similarly to other organized religions of the world.

Promises of reward (the divine dangling carrot), threats of punishment (the divine dangling sword of Damocles), and all the while dictating to the masses of followers WHAT to think, not encouraging people to question this doctrine or its leadership, but to only question themselves and all those who do not subscribe to their belief systems.

Genuflect, stand up, sit, genuflect, stand up, sit. Repeat. Ad nauseum. Full story...
