I think that Mr. Douthat (Bad Religion) has rightly pointed out the avoidance of the challenges Christianity presents (whether our personal decisions are "righteous") about personal responsibility, but he seems to downplay the challenges to religious institutionalism itself, that I think is also a core lessons of Christ's message and life.

Okay, so what about the people of the country actually benefitting from health care reform? Oh -- don't care about that, huh?
