Here is an interesting blog entry on an anti-semitic political flier by a preacher in Memphis:
Nikki Tinker, a black Christian Democrat lady, who is challenging Steve Cohen, the Jewish white guy the flier is critical of, has renounced the flier saying:
“My faith teaches me to love, not hate,” said Tinker, who is Christian.
I was talking to a friend who was upset about this flier and the lack of criticism it has been getting among evangelical Christians. Almost all evangelical Christians are strongly offended by hate literature of any kind. 1 John 3:23 clearly states what Jesus commands of His followers:
23And this is his command: to believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ, and to love one another as he commanded us. 24Those who obey his commands live in him, and he in them.
