Yet another fabulous article: the post-denominationalist Christianity of Sarah Palin

This one is from the NCR.

Good God, I hate articles like this. It's frustrating to see people quibble over such subtle differences. WAKE UP HUMAN BEINGS, Christianity is freedom - the freedom to engage the world with a heart concerned with things that last forever like the love of Jesus Christ. Being able to measure the world against such an indelible standard is real treat, let me tell yah. John 6:27 saves me from spinning my wheels for something that won't last like monetary success in the eyes of my fellow man and all that it entails.

The anti-denominational folks are in fact creating their own tradition, their own denomination every time they decide to: gather together in one place, on the same day, at the same time. I don't know about you, but that sounds an awful lot like "church" to me.?

I know that, and you know that. But the anti-denominational types? They don't know it.

More to the point, it's encouraging to me that conservative Protestantism is coalescing into a unified front. A fractured and liberal Protestantism is no benefit to Catholics. A unified Protestantism centered on the most critical points of traditional Christianity does two good things. One, it gives the Catholic Church a more solid dialogue partner. Two, it gives Catholics an ally in the culture wars against secularism.
