Just a new thing I'm working on through the cunning use of YouTube...

Hi, Rob,

Amen!

You said exactly what I have been thinking the last several days that these protestors to gay marriage are doing us Christians more harm than good. It's too easy for non-believers to paint us all with the same broad brush.

Keep up the good work,

-Larry

I asked Janice to view your video and this is what she wrote to me.......

"I do too and I also think that it is sad that all Christian's are judged buy the actions of a few. Isn't that also judgmental from the other side. I remember when we were in New Orleans and that Sunday was the Gay Pride Parade culminating Decadence weekend. There were all these Baptist protestors and we knew that from some of the signs they were carrying. They were screaming at the gay guys and the guys were screaming back. Alan and I were watching this from a distance and at the same time we both said, what do they think they will accomplish. If you want people to change then model what you want them to do and share your knowledge and beliefs but you can't force it on people. You just need to show them compassion and why your way might be better for them and lead them, don't shove them. We can share that we think our way is better but God did give free will and if you show someone and they choose not to follow you, don't stop loving them and sharing but accept that they will not see your way and move on.
Only God has the power to judge. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
Janice"

Thanks, Larry and Janice... my Pastor had some good thoughts on the video and not all of them positive... but in particular, what he said that struck me the most was the in order to show "authentic christianity" we must also love the bigot.

That slapped me in the face, because there is certainly an undertone in the majority of this vid that misses the mark in that regard (maybe not in he end, but surely through the first 70%). I made that comment to my Pastor, and he followed with: "but they have probably shut off your video by the time you get there."

Yup.

Loving the bigot is one very difficult thing to do.

Well, I guess when you think about it, we must even love the bigots, as hard as that is to do.

I think your video was great.
