As a Christian myself...

...I often pray that I be given the strength to refrain from purging the church with blood and fire. Like these idiots:
Cory Burnell wants to set up a Christian nation within the United States where abortion is illegal, gay marriage is banned, schools cannot teach evolution, children can pray to Jesus in public schools and the Ten Commandments are posted publicly.

To that end, Burnell, 29, left the Republican Party, moved from California and founded Christian Exodus two years ago with the goal of redirecting the United States by 'redeeming' one state at a time.

First up for redemption is South Carolina.

By the way, why are so many so-called "Christians" so obsessed with ancient Jewish law? The ten commandments were superceded by a much briefer set of rules, and if these so called "Christians" really wanted to make their point, they would insist on public display of the new rules:
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
So there.

  1. It's very simple why they use the Old Testament. Because most cannot abide the the 'New'. Like you pointed out, you do the first two and the rest are covered.
    Most people like to over complicate big-time!
    She wants to seperate. Let her! I beleive Jesus wanted us to LEAD by EXAMPLE.
