Bulletin Board Material

Welcome to this weeks edition of Christians Behaving Badly. Our special guest this week is Reverend Terry Jones, of Gainesville Florida. Reverend Jones and his mega church of about 30 or so loving followers of Jesus have announced that they will be burning the Koran on September 11. This is to further demonstrate their belief that “Islam is the devil’s religion”. He cites constitutional protection for this event. It’s the same protection claimed by flag burners.

Burning Koran

Jihadist Recruiting Poster

Those who’ve ever been involved in a sport that receives press coverage, have probably heard the term “Bulletin Board Material” This refers to negative remarks by a member of one team about an upcoming opponent. Invariably, the coach of the team that has been so dissed, will put the clipping containing said negative remarks on a bulletin board for his team to read, in the hopes of stirring anger and hopefully increasing the motivation of his own team. Coaches hate it when their players give bulletin board material to the press.

Reverend Jones is giving some prime bulletin board material. In fact, I’m willing to wager that a picture of him holding a flaming copy of the Koran will become the Jihad’s best recruiting Poster. (As if 72 virgins in Heaven weren’t enough)

Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should.

I hope the government doesn’t try to prevent the good reverend, because he does have a constitutional right to do this. I hope he decides not to because it isn’t Christ-like. He should abide by the words of the one he claims to follow.

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor’ and ‘hate your enemy.’

44 But I say to you, love your enemy and pray for those who persecute you,

45 so that you may be like your Father in heaven, since he causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Even the tax collectors do the same, don’t they?

47 And if you only greet your brothers, what more do you do? Even the Gentiles do the same, don’t they?

48 So then, be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

Just sayin’…
