Shaming the Name of Jesus Christ

April 10, 2006

Ethics Daily has an article today about the hate preacher Fred Phelps. It exposes more about his hateful and unChristian message. The best comment comes at the end from a counter-protester attempting to confront the hate speech of Phelps:

"Mr. Phelps, 'Pastor' Phelps, Mr. Phelps is just looking for publicity. ... I am also a Christian. He is not practicing a brand of Christianity that I recognize. I think he's shaming the name of Jesus Christ."

Amen! We need more Christians like this who are willing to stand up and speak out to confront Phelps and his perversion of the Gospel message. He is shaming the name of Jesus Christ and we must do our best to let people know about the love of Jesus.
