Maybe I Want to be a Quaker

My delightful sister-in-law (or “outlaw” as we have taken to calling each other) forwarded me an article about a recent incident on an Oregon college campus. Someone at George Fox University (founded by the Quakers) hung an effigy of Obama by a noose.

To make it worse, they taped a note tying it to the school’s efforts to increase minority enrollment. Believe it or not, this post is not going to talk about the stupidity, immaturity and overall wrong-ness of the perpetrator(s).

Rather, I want to share the amazing response from the college administrators.

"We absolutely cannot hate those around us and say we love God," said school president Robin Baker. "It is not possible.”

Bravo, President Baker. BRAVO!!!!

THAT is what it means to be a Christian. It’s shame that more folks who do their evil “in the name of the Lo-ward” aren’t reading from the same prayer book
