[quote:Kay 72054:MV8yNjY0MTBfNDY5OTQ5OF82OEE2MTlFMg==] Re: Orphanages from Wikipedia: Orphanage From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia This article is about the institutions for orphans. For the band, see Orphanage (band). An orphanage is an institution dedicated to caring for orphans (children who have lost their parents). The term is sometimes also used to denote institutions where children reside without cohabiting parents, irrespective of the life status of the latter. Though various practices encouraged support of orphans -- Jewish law prescribed care for the widow and orphan, and Athenian law supported all orphans of those killed in military service until the age of eighteen -- the first orphanages, called orphanotrophia, were founded in the first centuries AD. The care of orphans was particularly commended to bishops, and during the Middle Ages, to monasteries. In many times and places, orphanages have been founded to provide an alternative to child abandonment. ============== So, see, first known organized care of an orphan (first orphanage) was done in the first centuries AD, commended to BISHOPS. That is a Christian term, a Christian institution. [/quote]
Kind of embarrassing for the modern right-wing church. I guess that's why they ignore most of what Jesus actually taught and focus mainly on his sacrifice and death.
"Passion of the Christ," anyone? Right-wingers loved it, because deep down, they enjoy seeing a peace-loving leftist who championed the poor sacrificed for the sake of the audience. The more torture, the better - it's what they'd secretly (or openly) like to do to all progressives.
Christianity is a death cult. It's all about the brutal killing of a wise and compassionate man for the sake of buying unwise and uncompassionate people a free ticket to "everlasting paradise."
Christianity? No thanks. Jesus wouldn't approve.
