Sounds like a joke, but it isn’t.
An interesting article here.
A few of his thoughts cut and pasted from the spot I picked this up from:
Clearly, most churches have aligned themselves against non-religious
people. By adopting this stance, Christians have turned off the people
I would think they want to connect with. The combative stance I’ve
observed is an approach that causes people to become apathetic—and even
antagonistic—toward religion as a whole. Many evangelical pastors seem
to perceive just about everything to be a threat against Christianity.
Evolution is a threat. Gay marriage is a threat. A swear word uttered
accidentally on television is a threat. Democrats are a threat. I don’t
see how any of these things pose a threat against Christianity. If
someone disagrees with you about politics or social issues or the
matter of origins, isn’t that just democracy and free speech in action?
Why do Christians feel so threatened?
You need to spread the message of Christianity—the message being
what Christianity stands for—loving each other, helping the people
around you. Those are things everyone can get on board with.
