A preacher to preacher letter

https://revolsen.com/2017/05/17/an-o...church-pastor/

Giving franklin graham the title of "preacher" is a bit over the top, he is nothing more than a right wing nut job perverting religion to excuse his unwarranted hate for those he doesn't like. This small time preacher put graham in his place.

"I have to say, though, that I was a little confused by your summons. Of all the things that worry me, loss of religious freedom for Christians in America isnít one of them. I canít say I have ever experienced anything in this country that could reasonably be called a restriction on my religious liberty, much less persecution. When you started talking about attacks on Christianity, I thought you might have been referring to the racially motivated slaying of pastors and lay people at Mother Emmanuel church in Charlotte some time back. Or I figured you were referring to the slaughter of Coptic Christians in Egypt this past Palm Sunday. Thatís what I call persecution. But having to pay a judgment for refusing to bake a cake for a same sex couple in violation of the law against discrimination? This you call persecution? Thereís a letter in the Bible, written by the Apostle Peter (ever heard of him?). Heís an expert on persecution, having been on the receiving end of it more than once. He says you donít get divine kudos from suffering the consequences of breaking the law-even if you are a Christian. Moreover, there is a Christian fellow named Paul (aka Saul) who wrote a letter to a church in Rome nearly two thousand years ago. He said that if your enemy is hungry you should feed him (thatís in the Bible too). So wouldnít it have been the Christian way to have baked a cake for the same sex couple in your example, even if you deem them enemies (another assertion I donít quite understand)? Iím confused.

But in any event, Frank, letís get over this persecution complex. Stop with the drama already! You are not under attack just because you have to follow the rules like everyone else. Look, I understand the owners of this establishment you mention in your speech donít approve of gay and lesbian people getting married. They donít have to approve of them. But if they are going to do business in this country, they have to follow the law against discrimination-just like the rest of us. If you donít like the rules, donít join the game. Itís that simple. Furthermore, I donít understand why baking a cake for people whose conduct you find personally offensive is such a big deal. Heck, Frank, if all of us small church pastors refused to bury everyone whose conduct we didnít approve of, the country would be ten feet deep in corpses!"
Thanks from Hollywood

And therein lies the problem. MOST of the people that call themselves "Christian" have little or nothing in common with the man they claim to worship. Most use their religion to justify their own bigotry, hatred and narrow mindedness. Far removed from the teaching of Jesus.

This man isn't necessarily a liberal, he's just a REAL CHRISTIAN !!!
Thanks from Hollywood and GhostRider

What's the quote from the Dali Lama?
Something like, "I like your Jesus very much, your Christians not so much."

It is amazing watching someone condemn a whole group of people. Especially when it would be impossible for you to say you have even met 1% of them.

You even upper cased MOST. How is it you met all those people? How is it you came to this knowledge that they are all narrow minded bigoted haters? Just reading what you said the only hate I see is coming from you. Very telling that you have the capability to pass such judgment on such a large group of people that you have never even met. You are without a doubt a great asset with that kind of ability.
