I have recently begun to read a popular blog called "Jesus' General" and it just may be a keeper in my daily reading. It is, after all, a finalist in The 2008 Weblogs Awards. And, I've been following a rather interesting set of entries addressed to Pastor Steven Anderson of the Faithful Word Baptist Church.
Here is an excerpt from Friday's letter:
"You have it all....a wife, Zsuzsana, who is training up your children in the ways of Our Lord.
I found an example of the latter at Zsuzsana's blog. It's in a story
about a recent shopping trip she made with your four and five-year-old sons. Heck, I'll let her tell it:My kids had the following conversation at the store yesterday, very loudly, and within ear shot of several other customers:I'm very impressed by that exchange. Not only do the children identify whom they hate, but they also attempt to rank the people and groups according to the level of hatred each deserve. That's fairly sophisticated thinking for that age group. At this rate, they'll be ready for a pair of steel-toed witnessing boots by the time they hit seven.
John (4 years old): Barack Obama, and the devil, and the government are worser than anything else in the world.
Isaac (5 years old): Mom, John actually told me that he thinks Barack Obama is worse than the faggots.
Ah, precious moments!
Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. - Proverbs 22:6
But, I'm also very curious about how you taught them to hate The Gay. After all, as Christians, we define homosexuality as a behavior rather than an intrinsic characteristic--so you couldn't really say something like, "they are men who love men," because loving
is not, in itself, a behavior. So how did you do it? Did you really sit
your 4-year-old and 5-year-old down and explain various homosexual sex acts to them?
Pastor Anderson and his entire crew are deserving of a Knuckle-Dragger Award nomination or something else, yet to be named, to celebrate their success in failing to invite others to Christ. Yep. True American Taliban And Christian Pretenders.
Jesus, save me from your followers!
