QOTD

"My faith affects everything that I do, [but] faith without works is dead. ... That's why I fight against poverty. That's why I fight to clean up the environment and protect this earth. That's why I fight for equality and justice. ... God's work must truly be our own."

- Sen. John Kerry, during last night's debate.

It's funny, this. To me, this sums up what I find so unbelievable about most fundamentalist Christians. For all their talk about faith, being born again, having Jesus in their hearts, etc., they seldom seem to actually do anything. It's merely enough to buy a bumper sticker, maybe send a few bibles to El Salvador... that's all that matters. Why actually do anything to improve people's lives?

Maybe it's because they secretly feel that anyone who isn't as lucky as they are doesn't deserve what they've got?
