And this, Andreas, is a masterful reply. Thank you.
Now, I can hear our Kirk pals exclaim in horror that none of these represented actions committed by people truly transformed by the Spirit of God within them. I'd agree. Then I'd ask them to acknowledge that Islamofascism isn't what most Muslims believe, approve of, or participate in. Here, we'd likely disagree. Then I'd ask the Wilsonites if they would consider thinking long and hard about the teachings and distortions, the character and the conduct, of their leaders, whose wrongdoing hardly needs genocide behind it to be roundly and robustly condemned by others around them.
At this point they'd suggest that I ask my husband for greater understanding, call me a moonbat Intolerista, and come up with other silly ways to use "Mix" in describing me. And I?
Well, there's that thing about acting in a way that produces fruit that confirms the character of people truly transformed by the Spirit of God within them . . .
God is good. Sometimes God's followers -- and that includes me -- act atrociously. They often get to because no one takes them to task -- not in the church, not outside of it. I'm thankful for background on the Kirk, pray that what we see posted here is accurate, ask for wisdom in confronting it, and renew my commitment to speak out against bigotry in 2008 and beyond. How I'd love to be joined by the mighty men of Anselm House.
