"Being Christian" is on one level a character study of the Pastor Hillcox. He is a complex man who has learned the arts of manipulation from his abusive father and is profoundly insecure at his own core. His actions as a young man and his relationships as a mature and successful church leader are symbolic of how, in extreme religion, the emphasis on sexuality demonstrates its leadership's ambiguity and poor understanding regarding sexuality as functions of biology, love, and control. His ability to hold all others accountable while never failing to excuse his own many flaws and sins holds up to the light the manner in which ideologues manipulate their own intellects to maintain understandings that are self-contradicting and beyond proof.
More than simply exposing right-wing Christianity on ideological and theological grounds, "Being Christian" allows us a look at the inner workings of the men (and it is mostly men) who lead their congregations to extreme and dangerous beliefs.
A must read!
