Why do we buy into that?

This quote is from an article about the biggest church in North America. I didn't read the whole thing. (In fact, I just skimmed it.) But I think this has a lot to say about America's level of taste. (I always say, why do you think MacDonalds is the most popular restaurant chain in the world?)

"The reason Osteen is so popular is because of the infantilism of America. He feeds the Paris Hilton, Britney Spears culture. It's all me. Benefit me. What can I do for me? How can I feel better? It's all me-centered."

So rather than just pointing the finger at others, I must ask myself how I buy into those kinds of lies. And try to stop doing so.

It's an interesting perspective on religion and it's interesting that you brought up McDonald's. I came across this site that kind of ties into it all for me, (I think).
