I was recently taken to task by a poster at another site who stated that this crime was a result of the policies of the church and there liberal leanings. I suggested Jesus was liberal. I was informed that he may have been, but not on issues that are facing America in 2008. Things like prostitution, gay marriage, euthanasia, abortion, higher taxes etc.
It is true that Jesus did not have to deal with these issues. I would not be brave enough to venture a guess on how he would. I can however, be certain he would not have killed innocent people to get his point across. Those that invoke God's name in violence such as this are simply wrong. Has human life become so cheap that we will now murder for our political beliefs? For different points of view? In a church? Has politics gone so haywire that we are now consumed by those we disagree with to the point of murder?
The whole country should be outraged at this act. It is not a blue state or red state issue. The people of Tennessee have been through enough. Let this church mourn for its members and pray for the injured. Do not suggest that they now pray to the very God who condoned this action.
