I’d never heard of Jed Smock before a Facebook friend linked to this post. He appears to be a wingnut preacher who travels from college campus to college campus, recently appearing at Grand Valley State here in Michigan. And he says things like this:
“I dismiss the god of Mohammad because he is a tyrant. A tyrant by definition is a law unto himself; he is above the law. On the other hand the God of the Bible submits himself to the same Moral Law to which he expects man to submit, thus making him a moral Governor. Also, Allah is not a loving God. If there is a God, he should be a loving being.”
For crying out loud, has he ever read the Bible he claims to believe in? Seriously?
