A friend asked me today, “Why do Christians love to hurt each other so much?” I had to explain that Sunday morning originally had a monopoly with roots in European feudalism. People were required not only to obey their government leaders, but also to “love” them, just how Sunday morning leaders demand allegiance.
Turf warring is profitable. It is the business model used in illegal narcotics, prostitution, and piano tuning. Guilds were common place for many trades during the Middle Ages.
The more ancient guilds grew, the more interested local governments became in controlling them. Now, it’s Sunday morning’s turn.
