Letter: Church does wrong in the name of God

Body: 

To the editor:

I am angry.

What type of church would support the severing of family ties?

The Church of Scientology?

David Koresh and The Branch Davidians?

Jim Jones and the Peoples Temple?

Cults.

What is frightening is, we have just such a "group think" church in our own backyard.

I am angry at a church that encourages cutting ties with family who are non-members of the church.

I am angry at a church that pacifies parents with fake smiles and a gung-ho, thumb- up attitude, while stealing their children.

I am angry at a church that brainwashes our youth.

I am angry at a church that takes credit for the success of a well brought up child.

I am angry at a church that promotes chaos and conflict within a family.

I am angry at a church that pits son against father and brother against brother.

I am angry at a church that controls its members with faux concern for their souls.

I am angry at a church that fails to show empathy.

I am angry at a church who hides behind a spiritual agenda using it for monetary and material gain.

I am angry at a church that equates how much money you give to whether you will go to heaven.

I am angry at a church that does all of the above in the name of God.

The church may have a different name, but the Kool-Aid tastes the same ... .
