Defrocked former ordained minister exposes the hypocrisy, corruption and mean-spirited lack of compassion that permeates the church in America today. The book identifies and exposes the holierthanthou attitudes that seem to afflict all major organized religions today, resulting in well publicized cases of greed, corruption, sexual scandals, financial irregularities, and hypocrisy.
The book explores the unbelievable repressive atmosphere existing in many major religious groups and details the author's sufferings and eventual ruin at the hands of a religious sect. The message to the corrupt church is clear ... the time is passed for the holierthanthou.
The author proposes, not that the church be forever condemned or ignored, for it represents the only real path for the growth and maturing of human spirituality, but that the church recognize the nature and extent of its self deception and the need to embark upon self-cleansing and revocation of the holierthanthou approach.
This is a must read book for seminarians and anyone involved in organized religion. It is at least an eye-opener for us to see the church as it really is in America today; holierthanthou with a great need for healing and transforming.
