I ran across this remark the other day and it hits the nail squarely on the head. Capon is an episcopal priest and cook.
“Christianity is not a religion. Christianity is the proclamation of the end of religion, not of a new religion, or even of the best of all religions… If the cross is the sign of anything it’s the sign that God has gone out of the religion business and solved all of the world’s problems without requiring a single human being to do a single religious thing. What the cross is actually a sign of is the fact that religion can’t do a thing about the world’s problems – that it never did work and it never will.”
Robert Farrar Capon
Here is a link to an interesting interview from a few years ago by Tim Brassel of Christian Odyssey. Capon has quite a few books in print and I am looking forward to delving into them.
