The Shelf Life of Spong

The Shelf Life of Spong May 21, 2006

“The issue for me is that God seems to be on the wrong side of most issues,” Spong said in a telephone interview. “The public God we see today is mostly opposed to abortion and gay and lesbian people, and I find that really rather fascinating.”

Thirty-some years ago, God was mostly mentioned in the context of the anti-war and civil rights movements, Spong said.

“That was the public voice of Christianity,” he said. “Now it’s the Religious Right, centered in the South and basically homophobic and anti-female.”
