I hate being called a bigot. I was recently called that because of my biblically-held belief that marriage is between a man and a woman. But the reality is many Christians ARE bigots, but not like this. Many Christians have this antagonism toward Muslims. While those who practice the Islamic faith have been responsible for terrorism around the world, that doesn’t mean we should ignore the words of Jesus to love our enemies. The reality is many Muslims are searching for truth. I’m told by many who work in the Muslim world that more Muslims are turning to Christ today than ever before. If we really want to turn the tide on bigotry, show love for those it doesn’t make sense to love. It’ll speak volumes to our kids.
