I have already posted about the ‘well respected’ Christian Jerry Falwell but while it may take some doing to usurp his position, other outspoken and very un-Christian Christians in American have gained media respectability.
I’m not talking about the obvious nutters like the Koran book burner Pastor Terry Jones or The Westboro Baptist Church’s Fred Phelps but people that are regularly chosen for media comment or even have their owns media spots and shows.
I can only describe such people as the Christian Taliban and one such darling of the airwaves is Ann Coulter.
She once stated "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity."
With attitudes like that in the popular media what chance will Christianity have of ever giving the peace they would claim their faith would bring?
Without each of us taking the personal responsibility to make peace then surely it can not happen but unfortunately many, including the religious do not want peace.
Lets be honest, if the second coming of Christ even happened and a bearded man of Middle Eastern appearance in a long night shirt was introduced to these guys, do you think it would cross their mind for a second to consider what he had to say about anything?
