And this man calls himself a Christian????

http://www.dallasvoice.com/joel-burns-responds-arkansas-school-board-member-encouraged-gays-kill-1049804.html

This is the most disgusting thing I have ever read, coming from a man who claims to be a Christian? What kind of human being is this?

  • There are many different opinions out there when it comes to what it means to be a Christian. Sadly there are those who feel that forcing their understanding/interpretation of righteousness or purity onto others is a valid qualification - those who forget how much Jesus himself had issue with the legalistic, dogmatic Pharisees of his own time, that love is our highest calling, not judgment....

  • Some of the most upsetting things I've read recently have been from people who claimed to be Christian, and this doesn't seem very Christ-like to me. They should be praying for these families that are burying their poor children, teaching people to be tolerant of others, and not spreading hate. IMO

  • "Extreme Christian" ? I find it fascinating that those that fall all over themselves and call people FOUL names like Bigots and Hateful when some refers to Muslim extremists as terrorists have absolutely zero qualms lumping all Christians in with the crazies and giving NO qualifications............Ironic?
