Found this on a facebook page about politics and religon: Imagine if everyone was this passionate about things that actually matter. (photo shows exicited fans at a baseball game) SALTY: lets see, its acceptable to be a sports fan, but when we become a fan for Christ - the other side uses the full word of fanatic to describe us. OTHER POSTER: as for me, i think it's great to be a fanatic for Christ. Of course, I think that doesn't mean doing silly rah-rah things -- but rather living out one's life based on Jesus values. To start, that means caring a lot about the sick, poor, oppressed, immigrants. It means generally opposing rich, powerful, corrupt influences. It means hating hypocrisy. Those are things being a true Jesus fanatic are about. Certainly, that can't include supporting the Republican party which opposes most of the values Jesus held dear. SALTY: That is a subject for another discussion *********************** thoughts?
