The News-Sentinel asked: What is your favorite religious or spiritual quote? Why do you like it?

“You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” — Anne Lamott

Crossing the two to three thousand year old bridge from today to the biblical era is a risky business, fraught with difficulties, most of which are invisible to today’s Bible readers. Consequently, too often we find in the Bible what we want to find, not the original intent, so deeply obscured by our cultural understandings which we overlay on the Bible.

Rev. Steve Kindle of Stockton is the author of “Marriage Equality: Why same-sex marriage is good for the church and nation.”
