I’m reminded of Karl Marx who at one stage declared: “I, for one, am not a Marxist!” such was his frustration at what was happening in his name. Many other people have despaired at what is done under the banner of Christianity.
When the Bern romance became a spititual movement it unfortunately lost a lot of common sense. This seems to be what humans do when they get caught up in a Belief system.
