"...They've read the scriptures that talk about the importance of welcoming the stranger, they've read the scriptures about the importance of caring for the poor, and when they see that no longer on the lips of those who are in religious authority, they see that the God we present is bankrupt, and that we're theologically thin in our ability to even speak our own story."

The religion they present is bankrupt! Which is why the number of people who claim 'no affiliation' is increasing. For years religious institutions have bankrolled preachers/speakers/pastors that has said the things that itching ears want to hear. The leaders have more allegiance to the institution than to Jesus Christ! They are not presenting God at all!
