According to George Barna, the famous Christian researcher, Christians are nearly exactly the same as non-Christians in their attitudes and lifestyle behaviors. Thus, it was America's heterosexual, nuclear family sins... 1. gossip 2. gambling 3. Harry Potter 4. shopping on Sunday and treating it as any other day rather than as set apart for the Lord 5. grumbling about not getting desired answers in prayer: lack of faith 6. "holier than thou" moral superiority Phariseeism 7. tolerance of unspiritually discerning church leaders 8. racism 9. sexism: patriarchal over-exaltation of male "domination" & dictatorship over women & kids 10. lack of concern for homeless people 11. lack of compassion for all poor people 12. lack of solidarity with persecuted church 13. lack of care for widows & orphans 14. materialism, keeping up with neighbors 15. evangelism-phobia 16. incest 17. wife-battering 18. physical child abuse by hetero fathers 19. mental child abuse ...and many other sins, not just gay marriage, gay sex, and abortions... ...that CONTRIBUTED TO the events of 9-11. IMHO.
