Youtube post

The story covered in the youtube video I just posted is both frightening and sad. For people who call themselves Christians to seek credit, because their "prayers" supposedly brought on someone's death, should bring swift condemnation from all Christians everywhere. Unfortunately, this type of lunacy is so commonplace that it no longer gets much media attention. How can we reason with such people? The truth is we can't. We can only hope that in practicing tolerance, compassion, and inclusiveness in our own words and deeds that decent people will be moved to do the same.

Yet, too often, we fail to confront hatred and intolerance with sufficient vigor. In particular, politicians and opinion-makers who pander to base instincts get away with this dangerous demonizing with too little public or political outcry. As the elections loom, it behooves us to look out for hate-mongering, and fight it tooth and nail
