    But I disagree with the 'Many' in your sentence

    Many alleged Christian churches and teachers will pick and choose what their flock "should believe" and if it doesn't fit in with their political ideology, they will change the Bible to meet their politics.  
    I would change the 'Many' to 'All.'  The Bible is choc-o-bloc with conflicting 'advice.'  There is no way any one can interpret the Bible into one cohesive narrative that makes any sense.  (My guess is that all religious texts are the same in that regard.)

    Unfortunately, the truth is that liberal Christians are guilty of as much parsing as their conservative brethren.  We just happen to give them something of a pass because they more closely align with our politics.

    Full discloser--I grew up in a liberal church, lived through about 20 years of self-inflicted fundamentalism, and am now an atheist.
