29. Churches are clubs that anyone can join....although
some will have to hide their true selves. People are often lonely and desire love, acceptance, and inclusion. Churches provide that and probably it is more the group effect than any spirituality that brings people into their tent. I can think of no way to make these religions follow the teachings of Christ and the Constitution of the U.S. which would be to love one another, help the poor, and stay the hell out of politics.
