COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– Some advertisements that have been on bus benches for three years are now under scrutiny in the City of Colorado Springs.
The ads read “Jesus is Lord” along with the name of the church that placed the advertising, Charis Christian Center.
“I asked them why we could no longer use the name of Jesus. They said because, ‘If you use the name of Jesus we must allow hate messaging,’” said Charis Christian Center Pastor Lawson Perdue.
The Mountain Metro Transit said a recent complaint put the advertising policy under review.
The words and actions of Jesus should never be considered hate. There are some poorly educated or confused ‘Christians’ who pretend to speak for Christ, and they are wrong in their hate.
A more fundamental question for America is how we allowed ourselves to be taught that government has a role in censoring hate. When others get to define what ‘hate is’ then they control all media.
“26 And he said to them, “Why are you afraid, O men of little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm. 27 And the men marveled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?”
“37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
In the news lately “Jesus is Lord” bus benches are to be stopped because if the Colorado Springs Transit Authority allows that, they’d have to allow hate speech. Jesus is hate speech? In Sweden and Canada sermons have been branded hate speech.
