They like Jesus but not the Church

Dan Kimball argues that the people he meets like Jesus but not the church. That is, they have one of a number of objections to the church while Jesus is regarded with respect. The objections are:

  1. The church is an organised religion with a political agenda.
  2. The church is judgmental and negative
  3. The church is dominated by males and oppresses females.
  4. The church is homophobic.
  5. The church arrogantly claims all other religions are wrong.
  6. The church is full of fundamentalists who take the whole Bible literally.

I am not so interested in Dan’s solutions what I am interested in is, has he got his analysis right? What do you think?
