  1. Bring it on, Mr. Barro. Do bring it on quick.

    Your bosom buddies in the Roman Empire called for the same thing, but we Bible-believing Christians survived all the same.

    But give it a try if you wish, O evil-ish one!!

    • Doc,
      Did you get the impression from Mr. Barra’s tweet that he issued a call for violence? Your response of “Bring it on…” indicates violence is what you want. I hope I misunderstood your post, because Mr. Barra’s tweet said that anti-LGBT ATTITUDES should be stamped out, not the people holding them.
      Perhaps a journalist should refrain from making his beliefs/feelings known publicly, or perhaps he could have worded his tweet more gently, but he did not advocate stamping out Christians or anyone else.

        Is that like loving the sinner but hating the sin? The tweet was inappropriate regardless of whether he literally wants violence against those with anti-LGBT views.
