Is it really Christian?
Comment by Juli - 24 Jun 2007

.... I just felt strongly compelled to share this with people I know would feel as I did upon seeing this. This week's Sunday morning newspaper (Daytona Beach News Journal) had a front page headline that read: "Your State Attorney: Man of God, Man of Law." Beneath this headline is a huge color photograph taken of a meeting room where men are seated around a long table. The camera is angled from the ceiling, from a position right beside a large mounted deer's head, which serves as the foreground on the left side of the entire picture.

The caption reads: "State Attorney John Tanner, center, leads a staff meeting recently in his office at the Justice Center with one of his bow-hunting trophies on the wall looking over the proceedings." I would not be surprised if this "man of God" requested inclusion of this proof of manhood in the photograph, and would be even less surprised that few people will even consider the contradiction involved.

I know I should no longer be stunned by this kind of thing, yet I suppose after 55 years and counting of still being stunned, I will continue to be. It's only one small example of the reason we are so easily discouraged again and again, and why it's so incumbent upon us to make every effort to trust in God's ways and not man's. There's just an endless stream of callous disregard for the lives of God's creatures by people who clothe themselves in God's name.
