Radical Christianity

 There are those who would use the tragedy in Orlando for political gain calling the actions of one mentally ill man an example of "radical Islam" and condemning all Muslims.
Some would have us exclude Muslims from our country for fear or "radical Islam".
Should we then exclude all Christians for fear of "radical Christianity" as exhibited by people like Eric Rudolph?
Around our nation so-called Christians have been preaching violence against the LGBT community for years.  Is this the type of nation we want to be?  Are hate filled Christians any better than hate filled Muslims.
Who was it that said "let he who is without sin cast the first stone"? Oh, right, that was Jesus, wasn't it?

Martha, thank you for sharing these truths in an excellent post which definitely deserves to have wider readership than any of us get on our photo blogs. I usually wimp out and don't bother to try to do more than my usual Pollyanna-ish posts both because I don't have your ability for succinctly expressing the truth and because I am too lazy to try. Thank you for being a better person than I am and for sharing this.
