I'm an Episcopalian married to a Reform Jew. We're doing just fine.
"The economic differences among the country’s various religions are strikingly large, much larger than the differences among states and even larger than those among racial groups."

I think it's interesting that the article puts much more emphasis on discrimination than it does on culture. Jews are certainly much more discriminated against than Baptists, for instance.

I'm just relieved this topic had nothing to do with the "prosperity gospel", which is one of those areas I'm having difficulty with Unity over (although they are not the only church that preaches it, and it's not a liberal vs conservative christian thing-Joel Osteen preaches it as does Pat Robertson, even if they don't use the term "prosperity gospel").

To the one we are the smell of death; to the other, the fragrance of life. And who is equal to such a task?”
