ahh....finally a minister that will give the Westboro Baptist Church some competition for the most hateful group of people anywhere...

aren't there hate speech laws? Religions of hate should be required to confine their hate to the inside of their buildings where people choose to sit and listen to it.

How sad. I can't believe anyone would send a child to school dressed like that.

This, from 1949's Rodgers & Hammerstein musical South Pacific:

You've got to be taught
To hate and fear
You've got to be taught
From year to Year
It's got to be drummed
in your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught

You've got to be taught
To be Afraid
Of people whose eyes
are oddly made
And people whose skin
Is a different shade
You've got to be carefully taught

You've got to be taught
Before it's too late
Before you are 6 or 7 or 8
To hate all the people
your relatives hate
You've got to be carefully taught

This poor kid! Child Pollution should be illegal. I swear, her father should be charged w/ Child Endangerment, and counciled for idiocy.

You've got to be carefully taught. By the time you're six, or seven, or eight. To HATE the people your parents HATE. You've got to be carefully taught.

Note to everyone... although they may call themselves such, these people are NOT Christians. They're in for a shocker of monumental proportions when they shuffle off this mortal coil and head for the Choir Invisible. Cause the Choir Director is gonna be kicking their sorry, hateful asses straight into an eternal lake of fire for preaching and spreading hypocracy in His name.

You can bet that if kids showed up at school in t-shirts that said "Christians are idiots," this guy would pitch a fit of Glenn Beck proportions.

I would just like to note that in my earlier post on this topic I did not capitalize Christian and put it in quotations, because I have serious reservations about the true nature of a lot of "christians" adherence to the true principles and teachings of Christianity. I am a Christian myself, and even though I know I fall well short of the mark of where I should be, I at least try to follow the teachings of love and acceptance that Jesus taught.

Ugh. I can't even think of anything to say. I am just appalled.

According to what I read on Yahoo! it isn't just this one child but several others (including high schoolers) affiliated with this church that were also reprimanded for wearing this shirt to their schools.

I was going to send you this article, but was too disgusted. Now I see you're already on it.

This is 100% on the parent. Where did the child get the shirt in the first place? The parent(s) knew what they were doing, and knew what the outcome was. Why make your child the victim of ridicule, school punishment, drag her out of class, etc, just so you can preach your message.

The idea that a "man of God" would encourage this T-shirt is appalling enough. For a 10 year old to willingly (I assume) put it on and go to school is sickening.

The chances of the Sapp family knowing even one Muslim are zilch. It's likely a fundy church. He won't be losing any members. If anything they will be picketing the school about "free speech."

WTH?? As a parent, there are many things I would never do. At the top of that list is teaching my child to hate. I believe in acceptance of all races, colors, creeds, religions and so on and am raising my child to do the same.
I am a Christian, but would NEVER force my beliefs down the throat of anyone. If someone has different beliefs than me, I'm happy for them. Believe in what you want -- God, Allah, Buddha, The Force -- just don't be hateful toward those who believe differently [or toward those who don't believe in anything at all].

This bullshit is the exact reason I ran from Christianity a long time ago. Being a Buddhist now I believe in karma. This guy is really putting some negative causes out there for which he will have to answer for with his life condition. Good luck on that one.

Nothing like a hypocritical "christian" spreading THEIR word. It's shameful that there are still people in our country like this "pastor".
