What's So Christian About Peace, Love, And Understanding

We keep hearing from GOP candidates about how the Christian faith is under attack in America.   I just have some questions.

  • What's Christian about attacking people for their place of birth?
  • What's Christian about not helping people who are less fortunate than you?
  • What's Christian about seeking unlimited wealth for yourself while not caring about the financial health of others?
  • What's Christian about editing Planned Parenthood videos to portray something different than reality? 
  • What's Christian about making up a completely fictional account of those videos?
  • What's Christian about misrepresenting the history of this country and our founding fathers?
  • What's Christian about misrepresenting the content of the Constitution or the principles it was actually founded on?  
  • What's Christian about continually attacking people of other religions, colors, or creed?
  • What's Christian about cherry picking bible verses to justify your hate?
  • What's Christian about judging other people while ignoring your own sins?   
  • What's Christian about mocking efforts for peace and working for war?
  • What's Christian about unbridled defense of gun lust and the Second Amendment?  
  • What's Christian about lying and misrepresenting many facets of sound science to justify destroying the planet or allowing children to get preventable disease?   
It seems quite clear that if Christianity is under attack, it's not by the culture or the people that evangelical conservatives are complaining about, but by their own hypocrisy.
