Thats what Christians Do

Michele Bachmann attended an “anti-gay church,” quipped a perturbed commentator.  Another derided the prayer given by Rick Perry stating that what we need now is not prayer.

Why are you so Angry?

God asked Cain this question when he had rejected Cain’s offering and Cain became angry and sullen. Perhaps the same question could be asked of many of us today. Many people are battling with anger.

Who is a Christian?

Christian Jihad.  Christian Terrorist.  White Christian Conservative.  These are a few of the headlines that were associated with Anders Behring Breivik.  It seemed as soon as the violence in Norway took place people wanted to find a label to associate this man with.  The first thought that many had was this attack was made by a Muslim Jihadist.  Then, news came out that the man was a not Muslim, but rather Christian.  Once this became clear the previously mentioned headlines began to take shape.
