An excellent question

After a Christian from the Orthodox Presbyterian Church attacked and killed Jews in a San Diego synagogue, others at his parish were quick to clarify that their pastor didn’t lend fuel to the shooter’s fire. But Matthew Loftus asked a good follow-up question to pastors and parishioners. It isn’t enough to not preach hate, he said. The real question is: If people steeped in racial hatred attended my church, what would they have heard in the last five years that challenged such an attitude?”
