A new first

Unless you've been living in la-la land you know it's election season. Since the Republican primary was last Saturday we no longer have to suffer through McCain, Huckabee, Ron Paul or Fred. Now we just have to suffer through the Hillary/Obama/Edwards pleas for a few more days. Well, today there was a message on my home phone from some anti-Hillary folks. It was brutal. It lasted almost four minutes and just berated Hillary over and over and over again. I received phone calls last week asking me to vote for Huckabee and McCain, but they were pretty civil. They didn't bash each other. But today's message was one of the most degrading things I've ever heard. The guy on the message did all but call Hillary every cuss word in the book. In the words of the troubled Rodney King, "Why can't we all just get along?" Why do people have to be such jerks?

The problem is that we as Christians do the same thing towards each other. What happened to "they will know that you are my disciples if you have love one for another?" It's no wonder people don't want to become Christians. Add to that the fact that all of the candidates say they are Christians. We've got to do a better job at representing Jesus.
