This is what I am talking about

We have become a parody of ourselves. The term Church has so become a part of our psyche that it has become a position or status rather than a relationship.

This article talking about the interesting Ms Kanck's possible replacements in the South Australian Upper House refers to one candidate as a "Church Member" as if it is some type of status or qualification. What about the Philatelist Mr Stevens or the Egg Decorator Sally Parsons. I am not even sure if the term Church Member is not used as a pejorative.

Interestingly the term Christian was used in the first C in much the same way that Church Member is being used here, down to the fact that being a Church Member is still little understood.

The sad thing is that many Church Members are unaware of the fiction they are perpetuating.
