The Worst Thing a Christian Could Say Following Yesterday’s Tragedy

It’s not a Poe:

I don’t know if I’m more disturbed by the comment or the fact that 41 people “liked” it… (Thank you to John Meredith for his sane response.)

Is it bad that I can’t even bring myself to get outraged over this? I’m so numb from hearing Christians say awful, insensitive things in the wake of tragedies. I know there are Christians out there who are responding to the shootings in a truly helpful way. No one doubts that. But let’s put to rest this notion that being a Christian makes you a better, kinder, more decent human being. It doesn’t and it never has.

    It is so very hard to read this without calling Poe. I’m struggling to wrap my mind around it.
