    One big difference, between the woman at the well and modern day people: HE was Jesus, and you’re not. He knew the woman’s sins without her telling Him. Even still, Jesus often met with prostitutes, tax collectors (who were pretty unscrupulous) and even Pharisees (religious leaders who he reserved his harshest rebukes for). The Bible doesn’t detail him rebuking each of them, so it stands to reason he probably didn’t on every occasion.

    Instead, look at how Paul treated the people of Athens (Acts 17:22-31) who worshiped idols and even had an idol dedicated to “an unknown god.” He was kind and understanding, he even complemented them on being very religious. While Christians should stand against sin, especially in the church, we should stand against sin in our own lives and remember the greatest commandment is to love God and the second is to love our neighbor, not judge and condemn them.

    If you are reading this and you are not a Christian, please understand that Pat Robertson does not speak for all Christians, or even most Christians. The Bible talks a lot about the Jewish religious leaders in the time of Christ known as Pharisees, unfortunately, Pat Robertson seems to have missed these large sections of the Bible because he is in fact a neo-Pharisee who is more interested in misrepresenting Christians and more importantly Christ, in order to maintain some level of notoriety and power.

    While we believe that Atheists, and all people who do not know Christ, have a void in there life that can only be filled by Christ, it does not necessarily mean that they are miserable. Furthermore, Jesus does not hate gay people or anyone else for that matter.

    That being said, we only wish to be afforded the same religious freedom that other groups are afforded in our celebration of Christmas.
