God and Huckabee
It's time to hear from the real Christian America, the majority of Christian people who know what Jesus would do, how he would feel and act. Jesus, the model for Christian practice, is compassionate and loving. Huckabee sounds like the lot Jesus called, Pharisees. At any rate, I at least know this, Jesus would want to help in any way he could; he'd bring comfort, not callous words.
Please, anyone who wants to preserve American Christianity for Jesus, please fire the lot of hypocritical, loud ignoramuses that have risen through the media as the voice of Christian or Moral Majority. Let's hear from the real Christians, the ones who love and the ones who care, just like Jesus.
I'm not in any formal sense a Christian; I don't belong to a Christian or any other church. I'm not big on religion. I am very keen on spiritual practice and matters of the soul. In a Huffington Post piece, a commentator contrasts Huckabee's awful comments and the wonderful multi-religious speeches at the service at Sandy Hook. Then she goes on to say that even if you don't have a religion, if you're an atheist...
See, that's where I'd like to widen the scope a bit. Regardless of your religion or your spiritual practice, your belief or your non-belief, your heart cannot let you say such heartless things to those in grief. Your heart should want to help.
So let's hope this is a tipping point for those who love their Christian faith and their country, for those who follow Jesus; fire those sorry-ass distorters of Jesus' Word and bring back a religion based on the Love Jesus taught.
