Religion Prof: The Blog of James F. McGrath
The Blog of Dr. James F. McGrath, Clarence L. Goodwin Chair in New Testament Language and Literature at Butler University, Indianapolis
I was reminded yesterday of the above quote from Tim Gombis, part of which I shared here before. It seemed to me to deserve to be turned into a meme.
The error is also subtly borne out among more careful Christians in “non-violent” (passive aggressive?) ways, like character assassination and suspicion-casting.
Those fundamentalists don’t realise that stopping the actual act from happening does nothing for the hearts/minds of the “sinful” people whom they should be trying to help. Violence doesn’t solve anything; it just makes things worse. It seems they missed the memo from Jesus.
