The thing is, Christianity isn't about being all the things she described.

The Church is not supposed to be anti-gays, it is to be against sexual immorality in all of its forms, including homosexuality, while also seeking to comfort and heal those that wish to be comforted and healed.

The Church is there to struggle with them, or that's the dream.

The Church is not anti-feminist, it is about having proper roles. In Jesus's day, you could consider him part of their "feminist" movement.

Birth control is something to struggle with. On Democrat/Republican, Hillary Clinton is Methodist, George W. Bush is United Methodist, and I'm a lifelong United Methodist. So you have Democrat and Republican at the highest level, and libertarian Conservative myself.

The Church is not anti-science or education as the first educational institutions are thanks to the Church.

The thing is, I think she's among those who think like Ghandi, "I like your Christ, not so sure about your Christians."

I know that there are people who do need a break from what it is sometimes. I think lately you've needed a break from it.

Anyways, it reminds me of the Tony Campolo Birthday Story as he tells it (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWlMV-UmueM)after saying "Wouldn't we all" in response to where the man behind the counter says "No you don't, I'd go to a church like THAT" after Campolo had said that he "goes to a church that throws birthday parties for whores at 3 o'clock in the morning," he says "I don't know where we got this church that's half Country Club."

Me neither. It is about a mentality and a renewing of the mind and thinking about the things mentioned in Philippians 4:8 (http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=philippians%204:8&version=NIV) and making the Church like that.
