Christianity is for the underdogs.  It's for people who have the odds stacked against them.  Christianity is actually for everybody, of course, but only the underdogs ever receive it.  Being an underdog doesn't necessitate your participation in Chris...

Remember in the 90s, when Bill Clinton was going through the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how everybody said they "don't care" about his personal life, as long as it doesn't interfere with his ability to do his job?  Remember Chris Rock (was it Chris Roc...
