An astute and accurate commentary. I wonder how anyone can preach fear and hate of anyone and still consider themselves Christian. I consider the more extreme examples closer to Satan infected terrorists then Christian.

Sounds a lot like the hardcore left. Fear, demonizing, misrepresentation, etc. of those not in lockstep with their agenda.

I won't watch this video. I can tell by looking its some silly, tent revival, snake handling, drivel. I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ and the Holy Father. I look for Them, and listen , for Them, speaking to me, every day. Im hardly pure, and wrapped in white, but, if, in some small way, I serve a purpose, I will carry on.

Does the unconditional,love I have for my son and my lady, have purpose to Him? Will it matter , somehow? With my life, for theirs, be a tipping point? IDK, and don't care. But something tells me, that somewhere, somehow, Me n mine matter. That's twixt me and God. Ain't no fire and brimstone, lepers and scourged, matters to me. Laugh at me, disparage my Sky Daddy, call my Faith a "fairy tail", talk all the "enlightenment and new knowing" all one or many may.

Oh , Hell, I've heard them all. All the insulting and demeaning tripe. Pointing at idiots , like in this video, as representative of Christian Faith. Talking to me, you'll never know of my Faith, don't discuss it with strangers. I view people through the same suspicion they would view me, knowing my Faith. I won't trust you. Dont ask me if I believe in God. None of your businesses. Nor will I EVER offer my beliefs up, outside anonymity, with anyone not close to me.

Why is that? Shouldn't I be shouting from the rooftops? "Rubbing it in your face" , blub blub, ad nauseum.? Nope. Look to Islam for that, and atheism, and devil worship, and whatever else , making a point about "free expression". What God tells me, is, to cherish my son, love my woman, and protect her , should it mean my own death, and live the life I have. I'm happy with that, have ZERO need to spread it to anyone else, but if you butt in on me, and shout your beliefs on me, secular or not, I'll bloody your nose.! Leave me n mine be! Don't use some fire breathing, wannabe, delusional, apostate, as an example of what I am. I am a man. Human. Given gifts I treasure, and will defend, with my life. I give thanks to God, for those gifts. Don't care who rolls their eyes at that.

Wanna try and stick your nose in? Challenge my Rights to my Gifts? Attack my life, given by God, and spew " where's your Sky Daddy now"? ...I'll show you. He's right here, in ME! Its MY job, to take care of the gifts He's given me. No different than things one may have received as birth day, or Christmas presents. Responsibility to take care of these gifts, is ours, alone. .How precious are YOUR gifts? Whomever you pray to(or not). ......

I do not question their faith. Faith in the almighty seems to make some people feel and act as better persons. I am puzzled by some Christians that encourage hate and fear. That seems contrary to the Christianity I am familiar with.

I am not puzzled by hatred from other faiths because hating seems to be part and parcel of that religion. At least the part of the religion that encourages people to blow thing up and kill innocents and unbelievers.

I object to people threatening me if I do not believe. What I believe is my concern and not theirs. They can leave me be.
