Stumbled across this recently:

Progressive Christian Beliefs

I agree that the face modern Christianity presents to the world isn't always the best. However, I don't think we need to dilute the central teachings of Jesus to look good in response to Television.

The public stereotype of Christianity must change; what I value in Christianity is in danger of being lost, as Christianity, as portrayed on television, resurrects the heartless, rule-based purity culture that Jesus himself rejected. I have no theological degrees to contribute, and offer these thoughts not as an authority, but in an appeal to your own thoughts and prayers, that we may move forward together.

(Emphasis mine)
