This must stop."
I fully agree, I attended Racial Sensitivity and Sexual Harassments training for many years and I thought that people had grown out of that ignorant way of thinking and living. My how wrong I was! Hate in any form is not something that a person who claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ will tolerate in themselves or others. And the only way to overcome Hate is with LOVE! I have heard preachers that preach hate and judgement and that is so far above our pay scale that everyone should know that it is not right to behave or talk like that! You and I don't have the right to judge another. We can discern and should, especially as to what is right for you and me! Not be used to measure another! I Totally Agree with Bishop Lowry, THIS MUST STOP!!!
We adults should be teaching our children and grand children that this is not right! I hear the ignorant remarks by so many in the coffee shops and other places and I suppose they think they are being cute, I don't know. But it is not right by any stretch of the mind! If you are guilty, please STOP and if you hear it from someone, we should attempt to educate! When we hear our Leaders calling others names and spewing hateful remarks, we should not accept that from them or anyone else. THAT IS WRONG! Most 3 year old children know that it is not right to call someone ugly names!
Thanks for reading and I pray that you will find it in your Hearts to do your part to Stop this way of talking and acting. Grow continually in the LOVE of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit remembering the GRACE that He has given YOU! God accepted you with your many flaws and we should do the same to others!
Your Brother In Christ, Pastor Ken
