Hatred is not Christ
Hate is not tempered by religion; Christian hatred is just as deadly as Islamic hatred. At this blog a post was made about the Thanksgiving proclamation of President Obama. I have already addressed the inconsistency in Ingrid’s accusing Ravi Zacharius for not using the name of Jesus and her excusing George Washington of the same oversight. Of course her unredemptive hatred for the sinner named Barak Obama continues to be fed by any news item that fits within her political crosshairs. But when you hate, and when you print and project hatred, you invite even more breathtaking examples of disrespect and hatred. This one comment that she approved was under the post to which I linked:
“At the White House outdoor "Thanksgiving" photo-op, Hussein Obama pardoned a 45lb Jaindl turkey to live forever more in Disneyland. The symbolism is eery. Why? Shades of the concentration camp commander in "Schindler's List" who practiced pardoning in a drunken state, but resumed shooting inmates from his balcony. Too harsh, you protest? Not really. Just imagine those jive turkeys as you and I. With an outstretched hand, Obama will give a thumbs up or thumbs down, Nazi style, to pardon you to live forever more in his secular Disneyland where there is no right or wrong except as he defines, or he will condemn you to a forgotten world of irrelevant indignant religiosity, and/or death at the hands of the executioner.”
Every time I believe I have read the most vile and despicable things from a professing believer, I am taken aback by something that is profoundly unchristian and hateful. I will assume the commenter is young and that time will change his heart, but I cannot turn a blind eye to the forum that trains young hearts to hate. Hatred is powerful and contagious. Brethren, even if you participate in the political arena, remember to be Jesus and not an unredemptive partisan voice.
The gospel dies where hatred begins...
