To the neo-nazis and other hatists:

August 9, 2012

Listen to this:

“Blessed are the gentle; for they shall inherit the earth.”

“Blessed are the peacemakers; for they shall be called sons of God.”

On this basis, the followers of Jesus, such as I am, can know with surety that our Redeemer will never endorse– nor will his faithful disciples ever rightfully defend –the murderous acts of neo-nazis and other hateful pretenders who, being deceived by the devil, claim allegiance to some mythical, self-appointed  “white Christian nation.”

For the Lord of our created life has redeemed: homo sapiens of every tribe, of every language-group, of every ethnicity and every nation.

So therefore we, gentle, peacemaking followers of Christ, say– as our Lord spoke when He taught us:

“Blessed are those who mourn; for they shall be comforted.”

This blessing goes to  the Sikhs in Wisconsin who mourn their slain loved ones.

This Christian mourns with you.

Know that our God will judge those who claim to speak or act in his name, but do not know Him.
