"A Church that doesn't provoke any crisis, a gospel that doesn't unsettle, a word of God that doesn't get under anyone's skin, a word of God that doesn't touch the real sin of society in which it is being proclaimed, what gospel is that? Archbishop Oscar Romero (1917-1980) "Never let other people define your reality or put you into bondage to their ways of thinking." Jerry Maneker.

AN EXAMPLE OF SOME CLERGY RHETORIC OF HATE
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In this case, a video is worth 100,000 words. I can write and talk incessantly about the hateful rhetoric that emanates from all too many professing "Christian" clergy and laypeople, but this video puts a reality to that claim that no amount of words on my part could do justice. Why would anyone be intimidated by such a hater like this, and what does it say about those who would attend any church, or listen to any sermon, that he or those like him preached?

I am so sorry that this man is filled with hatred so blinding.
Me, too, Kelli, and I'm also, as I'm sure you are, more than sorry for all the damage he has done to those who listen to him and for those who are victims of his and his ilk's rhetoric of hate.
Also, thank you for referring to this blog on your excellent blog. I'm taking the liberty of linking to your blog. Best wishes, Jerry.
Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it
up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your
blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing.
Do you have any recommendations for beginner blog writers?
I'd certainly appreciate it.
