In Olympia, Washington, an atheist group decided to take a pot shot at baby Jesus by placing and anti-religion placard in the state Capitol – right next to the manger scene. The attack was lead by Dan Baker and the Washington members of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a national group based in Madison, Wisconsin.
This event has brought at least one reality to the forefront: Christians don’t handle attack very well. It’s in times like these that the world tends to see the worst in the church. And for some reason, Christians get pretty nasty when they are offended.
Mr. Dan Baker is welcome to say and do whatever his wants. I personally recommend dressing up as a Bizzaro Santa to promote and ring his winter solstice bell. His actions will not change reality: God is God.
God is not offended by Mr. Bakers actions. Actually, God loves Him and probably giggles at the misplaced efforts of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
I pray that Christians can learn to embrace those who offend us and pray for those who persecute us.
