Christian Sausage Goes into the Grinder. Again. And Again.17 May, 2009
Religion is, on some level (which I may find in this post), somewhat like sausage. Most people like it but they have absolutely no idea how it got made. Does your average twice-born fundogelical Christian dominionist have even the slightest notion just how many different forms of Christianity were around in the first few hundred years of the common era? Does an Appalachian Pentacostal snake-handler have any clue just how the Council of Nicaea was formed, operated, or came to promulgate the Creed? Does Dobson have a clue? (Okay, I know the answer to that one.)
Christianity was, is, and shall be quite messy. The ten thousand sects of Christianity (each of whom (with a few minor exceptions (see the Unitarian Universalists (who may (or may not) even be Christians)))) know that they, and only they, have the only correct interpretation of the inerrant and ineffable (and how in the name of pluperfect hell can something be both inerrant and ineffable?) word of god(s). And they keep right on grinding the Christian sausage (not a pleasant image at 7:52am (which is when I was (am?) writing this) into smaller and smaller pieces.
So modern Christianity went through a sausage grinder 1900 to 1500 years ago. Then, since the sausage was so damned crappy (must have been blood sausage (with some crispy wafers)), around 400 years ago they started regrinding it. Have they had any luck?

Well, they got the sausage to spell out “GOD” (or maybe “GOO”, not sure there). Does this mean they will stop grinding out new Christianities? Or grinding under those who see through the bullshit? Or has paradolia reached a new low?
