The American Church, Orwell Style

11 February 2008

An interesting article here shows us afresh, as if we did not know already, what kind of top-down force is required to keep illegitimate authority afloat – lest public opinion be mobilized to rein it in.

If you are currently on the staff of a certain church of my acquaintance, you have recently been instructed to sign something not terribly different from this in order to keep “order” in the church, notwithstanding the terrible abuses of authority that have taken place over the past year or so.  

If you speak out, your job is in jeopardy.  Does this similarity not move your needle at all?
