Cross burning in God's name
But Nathan, how can you say that? Aren't all Christians God-fearing sinners who follow Jesus' commandments to love God and love one another? Don't all Christians follow Jesus' examples of hanging out with the outcasts of our society and lifting them up and telling them they'll be first at God's table? Don't all of us go pray in a closet and seek to know and understand God everyday through our faith?
Folks, Exhibit A, from DailyKos:
Can someone say "Christian Terrorists"?
Three crosses burned last night in Durham, NC. Rev. Fred Phelps and his family from the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS were in town to show God's love by protesting the presentation of the Laramie Project. He does this through websites such as GodHatesFags.com and coincidentally one cross was near a "gay-friendly" church.
What is it about North Carolina and Baptists these days? First alienate church members opposed to the advocation of politics in church, then alienate Muslims, and then bring back haunted symbols of civil rights to persecute homosexuals.
That's love if I've ever seen it. [/sarcasm]
