Zealots and Religious Nut Jobs

I dont know if you pay attention to the news or not but have you seen the story about the Preacher in Tempe Az that is Praying that Barack Obama die from a brain tumor?

I was like "WOW" I could'nt believe what I was hearing. To be honest when you hear something like this you ask yourself "No wonder the secular world looks at Christians as weirdo whacko nut jobs?" Recently I was in Memphis TN. I was just driving around looking for a bank when i saw this huge Church that took up most of the city block.. and standing on the corner was a huge Statue of Liberty holding, not a torch, but a big Cross.

Now some of you are probably standing applauding this, but I was alittle embarassed by it. Again somebody who isnt a Christian would look at this and shake their heads.
all I am saying is that we always say we are under attack but dont you think that maybe just maybe we bring it upon ourselves?.. Im not saying do nothing, just keep your hands in your lap.. but C'mon.. is this the message of Love we want to project. Is this the message we want to send to the outside world? Come be a follower of Jesus and you took can be a weirdo..
NO way ... I like Christine Caine's veiw on this..BE THE CHURCH. we dont have to be over the top. We just have to be Christians not the sterotype of religious nut jobs, which is the catagory I place these two into..
