GUEST,Frank BS: The flaw in Christian Theology (210* d) RE: BS: The flaw in Christian Theology 05 Feb 05


The difference between Moyers and Limbaugh is that Moyers is a real journalist and not a propagandist. All anyone has to do is catch past episodes of his show "Now" to see that. He has had many guests on his show such as Grover Norquist that disagree with him but Moyers has managed to keep an open mind and a constructive flow of dialogue allowing for those that disagree with him uninhibited expression of their views. Limbaugh has never done that. He suppresses everyone who disagrees with him by out-shouting them.

The King James version of the Bible was written to appease the differing factions and sects of it's time. The scribes chose their language in translating from Aramaic and Greek carefully so as not to offend and retain the status quo. The Bible has always been used as an attempt to control the laity although it's original purpose may or may not have been for that reason.

It has and is being used as a propaganda tool for political purposes and maybe for religious ones as well.

This doesn't invalidate its lessons if taken as metaphors rather than facts.
