Pretty sure this opened a can of worms....

I am a christian...but I am still shocked that a polititian would say this!!

During his inaguration he said..if you are a Christian you are my brother or sister, if you aren't a Christian then you aren't my brother or sister..but I would like you to be.

I agree someone can be your sister in Christ...but I cant believe he said this as the new governor!!!

  • There is no legislating intelligence, common sense, logic, reasoning or even social decency.

    IMO, most Christian denominations encourage the inclusion of fellow man and neighbor....not just certain people.

  • Scroll down ria, there are 3 other posts about this :-) Also, it was his inaguration day, but he was speaking to a church crowd. He wasn't making a speech in front of the capitol building like the article showed.

  • I don't agree with him, but he has the freedom to speak his opinion in a church.

  • And he still was elected governor? What's wrong with that picture? Hey, I've heard it all.

  • he's breeding intolerance and ignorance. he's a pulic official "for the people", not "for the christian people"..speaking to a church or not, he still has a political oath to consider.

  • A. His words were inappropriate. He is the governor and represents the citizens of the state Christian or not.

    B. He was wrong. We are all children of God Christian and Non Christian alike. Therefore we are all brothers and sisters.
