Fighting Ministers


Episcopal ministers participating in role-playing exercises in order to learn how to be more assertive and not always be "knuckling under to overbearing parish members." Here they're participating in the hostility exercise, acting out how an argumentative church group might behave. Source: Life - May 19, 1958

My parents took my siblings and I to a Baptist church when I was very young. As I entered my teens I became aware that the lessons of peace and harmony within the church and the political reality were so at odds with each other. That and the fact that I tended to wear my hair really long seemed to draw a bad vibe from the upper crust members.

Reading the dialog in the article reminded me why I tend to dismiss organized religion as, how did Marx say it?, "Opiate for the masses."

I always thought television was the opiate for the masses, although now the Internet might have supplanted it.
