What I don't like about the evangelical right

scroll down to July 27, 2006

I orginally started this post with a comparison between malls and mega churches. It is something that has been coasting in the back of my mind for awhile.

A friend of mine thinks it's not malls or superwalmarts, it's country clubs. Controlled, sterile environments with no reality to the real world, sort of like a gated community.

"New Life's building has all the grace and charm of a Super Wal-Mart, but its inelegant bulk is swallowed up by the vast open spaces of the Rocky Mountains. Across the valley, the Air Force Academy's jagged, jet-age steel structures are clearly visible below the Front Range. Just down the road is the campus of James Dobson's Focus on the Family. Dobson and he are good friends, Haggard says, though they lead with very different styles."
