Bus19 In Hemet, California

I just found out Bus19.org and The Jerusalem Connection will be in my area at the First Baptist Church of Hemet with their national traveling display. I'll have to go check that out.

Needless to say, the "comfortable" and the "fair minded" in our area have found fault. Yet, one letter writer to our local paper's Open Forum writes this:

"A Moral Display

There seems to be considerable criticism of the First Baptist Church of Hemet for arranging the display of Bus 19 with its "political" overtones. So what? The Christian churches' biblical responsibility is not just to point people to God, but also to act as a moral preservative in the world.

Unfortunately, too many church leaders today remain silent on absolute moral issues because they have become politicized. When more unborn babies have been killed in this country than the entire population of Canada; when pornography permeates every area of our lives; when the divorce rate in America is over 50 percent; when one-third of our children are born out of wedlock; when gambling is sanctioned by the state; and when prayer is outlawed and foul language is tolerated in school, it is not enough to just go to church, hear the minister preach and then go to lunch. We need to pull our collective head out of the sand.

Whatever their color, religion or politics, terrorist suicide bombers who kill innocent people are hateful and evil. And when gutless terrorists flew hijacked planes into the World Trade Center, this church showed the video footage of that event, and called it evil.


Mr. Peterson probably goes to this church. I'll have to find some of these people.
