The Pope Abroad
by R. D. Ashby
Bookmark and Share
  The pope represents
only the failure of Christianity
in the denominational sustainability
of Roman Catholicism.
For Christianity to be a light among men,
it cannot be divided within itself
into a hundred separate sustainable brands,
as it is.

In showing forth the 'light of Christ',
or purporting to, we witness again
that strange anomaly
that to all Christians, divided as they are,
there is an implied unity among them
when facing the non-Christian world.

Meanwhile, the non-Christian world,
including that of Islam,
looks at Christianity, and sees its divisions
for what they are, discounting it
as a serious option for faith.

A Muslim or Hindu can rightfully say,
"OK, suppose I believed in Jesus
as the sole revelation of God, then tell me
which form of Christianity must I assume
to live my faith? I am more truthfully disposed
in retaining my belief, to count it as
a denomination, equally,
along with the Atheists and the Agnostics,
the homosexuals,
of humanity's claim to the truth,
which is what Christ claims,
as do all the brands of Christianity."
