Bible under attack

Bible under attack

The modern world has put the Christian Bible under attack:

• In New York City, the school board does not allow the Nativity scene but allows the Jewish menorah and the Islam star and moon emblem in classrooms.

• There is an online magazine that calls for radical Islamic jihadists to kill Christians. Some Muslims believe the Quran — the Muslim Bible — teaches them to kill anyone who refuses to convert to their religion.

• Pastors in some Christian churches increasingly are fearful they may have to let the government review their sermons for sexual discrimination or other things deemed intolerant.

Insulting and disrespecting the deeply held religious beliefs of Christians is fair game. The prejudice against Christianity is loud and clear.

Judge Robert Bork, in his book “Slouching toward Gomorrah,” states, “Why does America feel God won’t punish them? If He doesn’t, he will have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Western civilization was founded upon the Bible’s principles. Much of our thought, wisdom, philosophy, literature, art and ideals come from the Christian Bible. We even determine our dates in history by B.C. and A.D.

We are living in a godless America. Beware the wrath of God!

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
