Very unwise....I think I might understand where he could have been coming from....maybe he meant that he wished everybody could experience the goodness that is Christ...but for him to say what he said doesn't endear people to Jesus....nothing wrong with professing your faith in Him, but what he did isn't good discipleship IMO...

He is in a position to lead by example...to whom much is given, much is required..

He dropped the ball

I wonder if he'll say that to the Buddists and Shinto owners of Honda and Hyanduai that have factories in Alabama?

Seems like Alabama has a long history of electing kooks for governor.

The majority of the electorate in AL are kooks.  It takes a kook to elect a kook.

Well now that's the CRUX of the issue isn't it?

By one type of Christian, which type are you referring to?

And didn't Jesus himself tolerate others?

There is only one type, one that adheres to or is striving to adhere the teachings of Christ.   I said striving because none of us are perfect and we fall short.  However, if I don't follow or strive to follow his teachings then I am not a Christian but rather a wolf in sheep's clothing, a false prophet.

Just saying I am a Christian does not make me a Christian anymore than my saying I'm Cholly makes me you.  :shrug:

:lol: :o :lol:..............yeah, couldn't agree more with BOTH points you make here, B4L.

My very first thought when I heard about this was where do they FIND these clowns and how do they get elected to high office in Alabama?  What is fascinating about this is that just literally MOMENTS before addressing the crowd at Dexter, the dude had just been sworned in as governor on the steps of the state capitol building. 

Like several of you here, I have visited downtown Montgomery, and all you have to do is walk across the street from the capitol building, and you're at Dexter.  I think this guy was trying to ingratiate himself with the black congregation at Dexter who were gathered there on MLK Day.  He was also quoted saying something about how he doesn't see "color"  ::),  and that all who have accepted Jesus as their lord and saviour were his "brothers and sisters".

So, in my humble opinion, this was a classic example of a southern, white male politician trying to endear himself to an audience of negroes and it backfired. 

And, btw, dude can keep his so-called "Christian" values of bigotry, discrimination, death penalty, etc., to himself.  ::)

All I said when I heard this was "Here we go again!" :no:
 Yeah,He "apologized", alright..... for his words offending anyone. Not for seeming to be intolerant of other faiths.
 Certainly, one should be able to tell a Christian by what he or she does. A tree is known by its fruit and I guess we will see the "fruit" in the next 4 years.

He should have apologized.

A backhanded appology.

One of those "IF any of you were offended, I'm sorry" type excuses for an appology instead of a REAL "I'm sorry for saying what I said" appologies.

He also threw in that lame "I'm an evangelical baptist and we baptists use a language that other people that aren't evengelical baptists don't understand..." insult to everyones intellegence. >:(

TYPICAL for the mentality of a teabagging right-wing religious zealot. ::)
