Let's keep Jesus and drop the other stuff

I wonder what our Christian friends think about this: Religion off the agenda in 'church of laughter'

For those who are curious about Christianity but disillusioned by the institutional Church, there is a novel solution - drop the religion.

The Rev Ian Gregory, a cleric well known to readers of The Daily Telegraph for launching the Campaign for Courtesy in an attempt to improve manners, has embarked on a new project which he calls "Christianity without religion".

Out goes the "archaic mumbo-jumbo" of church services and the "silly arguments about things that don't and shouldn't matter"; in come chats about anything that makes you feel good and the world's first dedicated "laughter room" because "laughter is as important as prayer".
I've always felt a little guilty for laughing easily - and quite often inappropriately - but a Jewish friend told me laughter is a blessing. And she's right, laughter is a blessing, it's one of the best things in life. So maybe Reverend Gregory is onto something.
