After reading the ruling of the courts recently that Westboro Baptist Church’s protests during funerals and others places are constitutional, I’m seriously contemplating starting a website called
Christians Against Christian Jerks
I wonder if http://christiansagainstchristiansjerks.com is available.
I’m not timid in saying that I really dislike them people. Sorry.
You’ve heard me already write and rant about the paradox of Christian jerks:
…“Christian jerks” are a tragic paradox – especially when they think they are doing the Kingdom a great favor.
Let’s contend for the Gospel but let’s not be jerks in the process. Nowhere do I read in the Scriptures, “Contend for the gospel as a jerk.”
But watching this video (below) this morning, I got that really sick feeling in my tummy again. Like really sick. Obviously, I wasn’t there and I don’t have the full context but what’s been reported by others is that a rally with Christians was gathering around the outside gates of the White House and Muslim man shows up to also pray, and several Christians then gather around – hurl insults, shouting “Jesus, Jesus” and even throws some crosses on the ground – as the Muslim person is praying.
…just as the rally was dying out, a Muslim man who showed up to pray in front of the White House. He was quickly surrounded by a large group of protestors who shouted an array of insults at him: mocking him for drinking Starbucks coffee, telling him to go back to his country and even throwing tiny crosses at his feet as he prayed.
I know you wouldn’t do this but here’s my question:
If you were there, what would you have done in response to these Christians?
And one of my readers send me this link. Wow. I’m sure there’s some context for such hatred. Please tell me there’s some sort of context…
“Go back home…”
