Tear, Sigh, Tear

If I have been embarrassed to associate myself with other Christians, it’s not in defending an allegiance to the person of Jesus, it’s reading stuff like this:


Albert Synder

“There were seven protestors that Albert Synder had been warned about who were planning to picket his son’s funeral. They had never met Lance Corporal Matthew Synder. They didn’t know much about him except that he had been killed in Iraq the week before. And yet they had flown more than 1,000 miles to brandish signs saying things like ‘You’re going to hell,’ ‘God hates fags’, and ‘Thank God for 9/11.’

The 70 member church of Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas stage protests at military funerals around the country because they believe God is punishing troops for America’s intolerance of homosexuality- even when those killed, like Matt, were not gay – and that all of God’s judgments must be celebrated.”

From TIME Magazine’s Article “The Price of Free Speech”


If you’re reading this, and you’re not a Christian, on behalf of Christians…
