BOB8: Hate Religion?

8As we wrap up our ninth year of blogging, we are offering a retrospective of the best 20 things that I have most treasured about the blog. Here is #8.

Hate Religion, Love Jesus? addressed a very popular video meme that was quite viral at the time.  The post ended up becoming the 5th all-time most viewed blog ever…. and most of it was not even written by me.

Local youth minister Dr. Pat Sprankle responded to the Why I hate Religion, but love Jesus” and offered this punch line:

    Should we love Jesus and hate organized religion, or promote and engage in
    communities of Jesus’ disciples (churches) who love Jesus, serve others and change
    the world? I, for one, will work in my community of Catholic faithful, organized and
    religious though it is, to help bring about Jesus’ Kingdom here on earth.

It is good stuff, Check out the whole post.
