Although the primary target audience of this website is the large number of wierd so-called "Christians" in America who have "G.O.P." and "GOD" confused, liberal Americans who may not have much interest in religion personally can no more afford to ignore what some 70% of Americans believe than "people of color" can afford to ignore America's white majority (or gays can ignore the straight community). So long as one group is the overwhelming religious majority, and the other has been the dominant ethnicity in this country for centuries, and will fight to keep that privilege for years to come, nothing good can come from trying to ignore them. What this Jesuswouldbefurious.org website is all about is challenging the very large number of white, conservative Americans who call themselves "Christians" to WAKE UP.
       
        First, we challenge the political and the religious conservatives of America (including its powerful Roman Catholic wing ) to stop calling themselves "Christians" unless and until they are ready to start acting like followers of Jesus of Nazareth.
        And then we challenge all these so-called "Christians" to wake up to the fact that Jesus was a liberal, not a conservative, so in order to be his followers, they need to actually follow his example and his teaching, and become the liberals in our day that he was in his day.
        And finally, we challenge conservatives to come to grips with the fact that their opposition to abortion and to gay marriage is not the open and shut case that they imagine it to be, as they might learn if they could only pry open their eyes, their ears, their hearts and their minds.


Commercial-free :

Although we could have made money over the 20+ years that we have been online, by allowing cash-paying advertisers to assail our guests with all kinds of distracting commercials, we have chosen instead to pay all of our expenses ourselves. So we hope that you will appreciate the very unique experience of being able to read page after page after page of informative, insightful and moving material without ever being annoyed by such avoidable distractions.

If you are a smartphone viewer, we are sure that you love your smartphone as much as we do ours, but you wouldn't want to skip a chance to see a movie in a theater in order to watch it on your smartphone, would you? As great as smartphones are, they are no match for movie theaters when it comes to entertainment, nor for computers (or tablets) when it comes to studying serious issues seriously.
        If you had access to a tablet or computer, you would probably already be enjoying our lengthy, but very rewarding webpages on that device. So what we would suggest is that (after reading through this tip) you switch to the formal view of this site by clicking on the computer link, and then use the "share" option on your phone to mail a link of that page to a mailbox on your own computer ( and/or to those of your friends, if you like), as a reminder to visit that page at some more convenient time, when you are at your computer and are better able to explore the whole expanse of this great website.
           In the meantime, if you can't wait 'til later, just nudge the icon above to take you to the computer view right now, which we have at least tried to make as phone-friendly as we could.
