Consider these numbers (at the time this was written):
* 478 of the 535 members of the U.S. Congress identify themselves as being some kind of “Christian.”
* Seven of the nine members of the U.S. Supreme Court identify themselves as a “Christian,” with five of the seven more specifically identifying themselves as practicing Catholics (Alito, Kennedy, Roberts, Scalia, Thomas).
* Polls show consistently that around 80 percent of the citizens of the United States identify themselves as some kind of “Christian.”
* In most of the states in the U.S., being some kind of “Christian” has become a veritable litmus test for election to public office, with the result that the majority of governors and state legislators are self-professed “Christians.”
It is the greatest irony, as well as the greatest hypocrisy, that not one of the hundreds of millions of men, women, and children claiming to be “Christians” is practicing the religion as it is set forth in their bible. In fact, as I have demonstrated in this book, it is impossible for anyone in the world’s societies to be living her or his life in conformance with the principles that are attributed in the New Testament scriptures to “Jesus” and the apostles.
