Sunday Sermon.. Don't be an a-hole like Pastor Terry Jones.

Just a quick reminder for Terry Jones, the Christian pastor who came all the way from Florida to nearby Dearborn Michigan this week just to stir up shit  and bring attention to himself.   Any good Christian pastor needs to be familar with this passage. from St. Paul's Letter to the Ephesians 4:29-32. 
29) Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. 30) Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. 31)  Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.  32) Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you.
 Now that doesn't sound very close to how Jones behaved in Dearborn. 
Jones repeatedly provoked the crowd and insulted them. At one point, he ignored police requests by ambling down to the front of police barricades while taunting his opponents.
Well, hopefully while he was here he at least had a chance to break pita bread with fellow alarmist Debbie Schlussel and load up on baba ghanoush and lamb shawarma on Michigan Ave.
