It's not hate speech. Please, let's not further accelerate the decay of the word 'hate.'

It's just sharply critical and inaccurate speech.

Thanks Aaron,

I came here for the same purpose--you beat me to it. Christians of all people should have better command of our use of language.

Um ... Sam .... 

 

I don't believe it is a Christian calling it a hate crime. It's in the title of the article.

 

Thanks

Yeah, it's interesting that the folks at The Blaze worded it that way. I don't know much about them but I suspect that either the writer of the piece is very sympathetic to Christians or that they chose this language intentionally in order to try to fuel, well, a blaze.

Oddly the piece identifies the following as an example of "offensive comments."

“I’m Jewish, I’m not a fan of any other religion than Judaism.”

As a Christian--shucks, just as a non-idiot--I don't find this offensive at all. I'm fully convinced that everyone should choose a religion they believe is better than the rest!

The Blaze is Glenn Beck's news site. I don't go there often, but most all of the articles I have seen posted by friends have very provocative titles or first sentences to draw in readers.
