On Christians

[Christianity] It seems to have remarkably little to do with the things that Jesus Christ actually taught. Especially among Christians in positions of great wealth and power, the idea of reading the Gospels and keeping Jesus's commandments as stated therein has been replaced by a curious process of logic. According to this process, people first declare themselves to be followers of Christ, and then assume that whatever they say or do merits the adjective "Christian."
