Why I Love the Internet, Part XVIIXLC

The other day, on a long drive, I was listening to a podcast of This American Life. The specific episode, "Heretics," was about Bishop Carlton Pearson, who was a protégé of Oral Roberts, and who later renounced the concept of Hell. His new doctrine was called the Gospel of Inclusion, and the change from the traditional Fire 'n' Brimstone preaching he had grown up with cost him most of his parishioners.

I googled the phrase "gospel of inclusion" and clicked on one of the links that came up. I've highlighted the interesting parts of what popped up on the first search result. Enjoy the hilarity.
