“by leaving too many corrupt ministers in the pulpit”? How about religion itself is corrupt. The scientific facts disputing just about every aspect of the bible is beyond dispute. People are sick and tired of the “bully pulpit”! Religion has to realize that it no longer has the automatic power and control over a person’s very existence, especially in our youth. The internet has allowed for many truths and exposed lies to come in to plain view. We are a fast becoming a secular nation of free thinkers. The dogmatic stranglehold religion has had on individuals is diminishing at a rapid pace. One can only hope that someday all religions are banished to the historical epoch of myth and superstition. Today religions come at us with charity and smiles. It was no long ago just the opposite was true when people weren’t allowed to challenge religions without fear of severe punishment and possible death. Certain religions today still hold that apostasy should be answered with death. Religion’s archaic preaching’s are no longer valid and people are becoming more and more enlightened every day. There once was a period of time when religion did indeed rule the world; it is no mistake that these times are referred to as the ‘Dark Ages”. By the way – Christianity has been preaching the “time is fast approaching “for centuries. Jesus himself purported to say to his own disciples, “that the time shall pass before their lives end”. Before anyone decides to attack me, I ask only one thing – READ YOUR BIBLE! Don’t just read a nice little passage hear and a nice passage there, read the entire bible, objectively. Have the courage to start thinking for yourselves. If there was a loving God, he would want you to find all the answers you seek. Read authors like Bart Ehrman, Christopher Hitchens, Richard Dawkins. Go to youtube and listen to opposing views. Do your own research and stop following blindly! There is a reason the 97% of the member of the American Academy of Science consider themselves “Not Religious”. Our greatest minds, Albert Einstein, Steven Hawkins, Neil Tyson-DeGrasse, Mike Sherman, just to name a few, are all atheists. The majority of our Founding Fathers considered themselves Deist at best. We were not founded as a Christian nation that some people would like you to believe. Read the US Constitution! The only time God is mentioned is when they are making a clear distance from him. Read the First Amendment, The Treaty of Tripoli. Read Thomas Paine’s Common Sense! Ignorance of religion and following blindly is no longer acceptable.PS - We are a Republic/ Democracy - NOT A THEOCRACY!
