Congratulations, Christians

This past weekend I spent some time at the Leadership Training for Christ convention in Kansas City shilling for Cats for Christ. If you don't know about LTC, it is a network of big conventions for youth held all around the country in which kids from elementary through high school participate in dozens of different Christian-themed events like art, writing, Bible bowl, puppetry, drama, sculpture, and etc. We generally go to help get the word out about campus ministry at K-State and state school ministry in general. This convention probably had around 1,500 participants.

Anyway, all of that is to set up this: walking out to the hotel's parking garage, I passed a guy who was talking on his phone. These are the words that I heard: "...it's a big convention of Youth Crusaders for Christ or something. I feel like I'm going to burn!!"

Congratulations, Christianity. This is the image you continue to sell to the world about who you are. Regardless of what you think you know about the true nature of your faith, these words will continue to be the perception that defines to a vast majority of non-believers what Christianity is about -- judging and condemning others.

And who can blame them. For this is exactly what many Christians have told the world that they are.
