Rock Legend Tom Petty Slams Catholic Church And Conservative ‘Christians’ For Un-Christian Behavior

Tom Petty is a really good song writer and musician. I like that he is speaking out on issues even more. He has blasted the Catholic Church and Christians for supporting war and violence in our society. I like the idea of seeing him as an alternative to Ted Nugent. Nugent gives rock and roll a bad name and reputation.
I heard on a radio station the other night that he blasted the idea of pop culture idols who won their fame in a game show. He is right. Such stupidity makes a fool of those who learned through trial and error to develop a style of music, singing and song writing. Shows such as American Idol have bastardized our pop culture.  -Otto

Could Tom Petty be the counterbalance to Ted Nugent that many Americans have been looking for? It certainly seems that way considering the Heartbreaker blasted the Catholic Church and so-called “Christians” who aren’t acting very Christ-like in a recent interview with Billboard magazine…..
…..The legendary rocker talked a great deal about religion during the interview, pondering why those of the Catholic faith still give money to the Church knowing that it’s being used to shield pedophile priests or cover up their crimes. “I’m fine with whatever religion you want to have,” Petty told the publication.

Petty then went on to criticize alleged Christians who thirst for war and defend killing people like conservative “Christians” do today.
Religion seems to me to be at the base of all wars. I’ve nothing against defending yourself, but I don’t think, spiritually speaking, that there’s any conception of God that should be telling you to be violent. It seems to me that no one’s got Christ more wrong than the Christians.
The Catholic Church has been rocked for decades by the massive pedophile priest scandal that has resulted in thousands of molested and abused children around the globe. The image of the Church has taken a major hit over the years because of it, but they still rake in the cash from Catholics who seem not to care that their money is helping the Church prevent victims from getting justice.
Meanwhile, Conservative “Christians” here in America are bloodthirsty. They support perpetual war, guns everywhere, and senseless violence. The current border crisis involving refugee children has revealed conservative “Christians” for what they really are as they hurl racial epithets and threaten violence against them in the most un-Christ-like manner. In addition, conservative “Christians” want to punish poor people severely by taking food stamps and health care away from them, which is something else that Jesus wouldn’t do.
