A hard punishing God who whips his congregants into submission to whatever definition the leader of the church may desire. It seems that interpreting the Bible is a many stop shop. It all depends on what the leaders' political position is that defines how they read the Bible. It is sickening to me that these leaders pull selective passages from the old testament to hate on different groups of people while ignoring the other passages that do point right back at them. It is a selective worshiping process that has evolved. If you hate you can find a church that will hate right along with you. Just forget that passage in the Bible where it says all the other laws are contained in love thy neighbor. Republican Jesus doesn't hang with that anymore.
I find that organized religion has seen it's end coming and is fighting hard to keep what relevance it has left by morphing into what placates our baser instincts. Turning humans against humans is now a somewhat popular protocol for keeping a church thriving. Well, everything has a price and if a church has the inclination to politicize it's doctrine then it has to pay the piper!
