Commentary: What would Jesus really do?

NEW YORK (CNN) -- When did it come to the point that being a Christian meant only caring about two issues,­ abortion and homosexuality?

Ask the nonreligious what being a Christian today means, and based on what we see and read, it's a good bet they will say that followers of Jesus Christ are preoccupied with those two points.

From the comments on the commentary:

Quote
Roland Martin's attack on Pro-Life Christians was really uncalled for. How can a Christian NOT be concerned while little babies are brutally MURDERED every day by Abortion? Mr. Martin, as long as innocent babies are allowed to be killed, the life issue will be our #1 issue!

Why do I get the feeling this person missed the point entirely?

Because he has? Because he's fallen into the trap the RR has set and sprung?

Ya know, I was thinking about this earlier today.  It seems that fundie Christians have become so wrapped up in their own agenda that they have forgotten the teachings of the One they claim to follow: "All right, if Moses said so, stone the woman, but let one person among you, who is completely without sin in mind or deed, throw the first stone."

Words to live by.

That being the case no stones would be cast.  Even Saul,  whoos, Paul could not live up to that.  He had to have James (brother of Jeus?) stoned to death.

Yes - people would have to learn to just get along, wouldn't they?  Wink

Along those same lines, we have "Those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" and "do unto others as you would have them do unto you."

Tis too bad, really, that many people today have forgotten these three important nuggets of wisdom.
