For the longest time I was anti-Christian, because the liberal message therein.
After some more extensive research, I think the truth is that Christianity is too complex for most people. They try to turn a large and subtle religion which contains within it hidden and deep truths into a measly soundbite supporting leftist agendas. They take Biblical references out of context and lack the context or intelligence to fully understand it, of course naturally trying to twist anything they find in favor of leftist causes.
I think the Catholics may have been right to a large degree, with Martin Luther doing a disservice to many. The intelligent would have been able to learn Latin and do the research, read the great theologians and understand the full implications and meanings. The illiterate were capable of knowing the core message and what was necessary from priests, icons, and a message which was communicated frequently and part of daily life for the medieval peasant.
One example: after reading the mass-printed translations, the proles went on a chimp-out, destroying a great deal of beautiful religious artwork because they misunderstood a commandment regarding idols. They read something apparently straight-forward, misinterpreted it and inverted the meaning, and went around destroying works of great beauty that had previously served to education them on higher meanings. The mistakes continue to this day.
Some say despite this, the core message is simple enough: try to do good, realize you make mistakes, seek to know God and repent your sins. The left has decided that the most important part of this is "do good" with "good" meaning "support a leftist agenda" and then decided the God part isn't so important and sin doesn't really exist, except where it means anything anti-left, because all leftist choices are equally good: like sodomizing your neighbors dog or sodomizing your neighbor - it's all free choice yo!
