Ok, maybe that last blog entry was a little harsh. I don't mean to beat up on everyone that believes that Jesus is listening to their prayers. The people that quietly go to church, read the Bible without twisting it's words to suit their needs, and truly do what Jesus would do are the real Christians, and they do deserve our respect.
My problem is with the people that use Christianity as a weapon to hurt others. That is NOT what Jesus would do. Jesus spoke of love, compassion and forgiveness. The people that voted for Bush on moral issues, know nothing of these values. According to the Bible, Jesus loves all. Unfortunately for the right-wingers, that includes homosexuals, doctors that perform abortions, pacifists, treehuggers, etc. If they really want to follow Jesus' teachings, how about starting there?
