June 5, 2012, on this blog: What ‘teaching hate’ does and doesn’t look like
At a church that isn’t condoning, teaching and practicing hate, if a kid says that word in public, then everything screeches to a halt. The music stops, the audience gasps and lapses into an awkward silence. The child’s mother rushes up front, grabs the kid by the hand and drags him out the back for a lecture about never, ever using such hateful words — Do you hear me?
That’s what it looks like if you’re a church that doesn’t teach hate.
