Mocking Christians Not Funny

Baldwin United Methodist pastor writes in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Rev. Dr. Bruce E. Bryce isn't laughing.

Bryce, the congregational care pastor at the  in , wrote an April 24 letter to the editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in which he asks for respect for Christians when it comes to ridicule.

"When a Jew or Muslim is degraded, offended or ridiculed, it's called anti-Semitism," Bryce writes. "When the public display of the Ten Commandments is challenged, it's called civil liberty. When a Christian is humiliated, satirized or dishonored, it's called comedy."

Bryce has wondered if the "Golden Rule" no longer applies.

"Maybe it only depends on if it gets a laugh or not," he writes.

I've noticed a lot of this going on lately. Why the double standard?

Even Jesus was given a label ~ I.N.R.I ~ Come back to center... no cross no crown! Remember he did not label us. Isaiah 49:16 He engraved us in the palm of his hands. Lord have Mercy on us and on the whole world! Put your trust in him and not them. Pray for those who mock and humiliate you. We will all stand before him in final judgment... Peace be with you!
