Thanks to Will for his latest post. I think it might be worth your time if you are interested in hearing some troubling information about US prison stats/systems/etc. Great quote below in reference to how the Gospel and the US interact.
There are many who believe that the message of Christ is designed to make them and their children safe. I am not sure where someone would get that understanding from, but I do tend to wonder about someone whose theology is based on safety, comfort or contentment. I find little in the message of Christ that causes me to believe that I will not have to be involved with 'them', whoever you tend to define 'them' as.
