    A long time ago someone pointed out that christian churches which promote racism, hatred, policies that hurt the poor, etc. are promoting gross forms of heresy against the teachings of the founder of their religion. Churches once knew how to deal with such things - they would brand the miscreants as heretics and launch campaigns to expose and eradicate them.  Granted, in the old days their methods were often extreme, but they mainly relied on reason, logic, and persuasive preaching; the rack and the stake reserved mostly for recalcitrant leaders. And when torture fell out of favor they still had the first three to fall back on.

    So where are the mainstream churches today? Why aren't they railing in their pulpits and blasting forth from their radio and TV stations with condemnation of these heretics?  What about the black churches?
