The Left's War on Christianity and Phil Robertson

The recent uproar about comment made by Phil Robertson, is really nothing more than the lefts continued war against Christianity. While homosexual advocates have tried to redefine Christianity into some amoral and all accepting belief system, Christians recognized Phil Robertson was simply quoting bible scripture (Romans 1:26-32). Further liberals, as a group, are incredibly intolerant;  any belief system other than theirs is targeted for destruction. As an example, homosexual groups are defining Phil Robertson and his bible scripture as intolerant, rather than identifying harmful behavior, because the left simply doesn't know the difference and can't fathom real tolerance; in their world tolerance means acceptance. In other words, the left is so intolerant they simply don't understand the concept of real tolerance is even possible. It is unimaginable to a leftists that you would allow a belief different from yours without trying to destroy it.

Christianity is very tolerant as it teaches judgement should be left to god (this is certainly an area where  Christians often fall down, but this simply demonstrates that they are no better than anyone else);  but that doesn't mean you can't love your neighbor, and simultaneously  identify what has been identified in the bible as unacceptable behavior; or as Rick Warren said "You don’t have to compromise convictions to be compassionate." Further Christianity separates people from their actions; "love the person and hate the sin". During the GQ interview Phil Robertson listed behavior that is condemned by Christianity; it was not a comparison, it's a list; and he follows it up with, “We never, ever judge someone on who’s going to heaven, hell. That’s the Almighty’s job. We just love ’em, give ’em the good news about Jesus—whether they’re homosexuals, drunks, terrorists. We let God sort ’em out later, you see what I’m saying?” (The left knew it was just a list, they just wanted to turn it into something they could make a big stink about; further part of Phil Robertson's ministry is he lived the behavior included in the list and reformed) Again this is impossible for the left to understand for they judge everyone by their belief system, not by what Martin Luther King Jr's called the content of their character. .

The teachings of Christ have never changed, but wayward followers often stray as they try and create a belief system that is more in line with their contemporary mores. These new age sects all eventually fail, while a relationship with the Jesus Christ of the bible, a savior that was all human and all god continues to thrive. The anti-Christians like to point to the Crusades and other atrocities done in the name of Christianity as an example of Christian hypocrisy, but again these were actions carried out by imperfect governments and religious leaders masquerading as Christians and Christianity and define "using the lords name in vain".

The left has been trying to re-direct Christians to worship the state for a 100 years; one way is to redefined Christianity as an amoral, all accepting religion and then judge anyone with real Christian values as non-Christian. The left's weapon of choice is mis- and dis- information, plus in the case of Christianity relativism.  But since the Jesus of the bible is written down and hasn't changed, the left always eventually fails in this regard.When all is said and done people will always return to the Jesus of the Bible; a Jesus of Faith, Peace and Love who told us the way to follow him is to, "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind", and to "Love your neighbor as yourself." Jesus never said to accept the sinful ways of your neighbor, but commanded you love them regardless. This is the way of the Jesus of the Bible and Christianity.
