And they often do. I take 50% of what I said back. Going to church beats the heck out of going bars, and some people in church actually get the message that loving, obeying, and trusting God is where it is at and start actually doing it. Rituals have next to zero meaning.

The Easter sermon President Obama and his family heard today at nearby St. John’s Episcopal Church slammed conservatives as being racists, sexists, xenophobes and homophobes.

The AP story says the sermon, led by Rev. Luis Leon, was based on the Gospel of John and the Resurrection of Jesus, but the report managed to omit the part where Leon criticized the “captains of the religious right.”

Leon used his sermon to encourage parishoners to look forward and not be stuck in the past, and he added a political edge with criticism of some right-leaning conservative Christians.
