The new Twitter avatar of the SBC's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, which was modified to incorporate the Arabic letter "N," for the word Nasrani, or Nazarene, which ISIS militants were spray painting on Christians homes. The Arabic letter is now being used as a sign of solidarity with Iraqi Christians by many in the West.

Also: "Fifty Shades of Church." A Catholic media war brewing? Solomon's Temple in Sao Paulo. And a New York Times reporter tweets about "ruthlessly" crushing anti-LGBT sentiment. It's fatwas everywhere these days

    Bring it on, Mr. Barro. Do bring it on quick.

    Your bosom buddies in the Roman Empire called for the same thing, but we Bible-believing Christians survived all the same.

    But give it a try if you wish, O evil-ish one!!

    There is no religious messags for churches in 50 shades of gray.

    Seriously, this website is scraping the bottom.

    Doc,
    Did you get the impression from Mr. Barra’s tweet that he issued a call for violence? Your response of “Bring it on…” indicates violence is what you want. I hope I misunderstood your post, because Mr. Barra’s tweet said that anti-LGBT ATTITUDES should be stamped out, not the people holding them.
    Perhaps a journalist should refrain from making his beliefs/feelings known publicly, or perhaps he could have worded his tweet more gently, but he did not advocate stamping out Christians or anyone else.

    Is that like loving the sinner but hating the sin? The tweet was inappropriate regardless of whether he literally wants violence against those with anti-LGBT views.

    Good thing kashrut isn’t mentioned in the 10 Commandments. This franchise is closed Saturdays, right?
