My pastor's passionate and intelligent sermon yesterday on Broken-ness was complemented by the many broken artifacts the congregation had brought in.

Scattered amongst the broken statuettes, contracts, pencils and Christ in the photo above, are pictures of Rachel Corrie, Oscar Romero and Tom Fox (far right).

Say more.

It's coming. I'm going to run some excerpts from her sermon.

Thanks for asking.

Tom Fox is getting a lot of negative publicity on conservative blogs. As is the course with these right wingers, his christianity and motives are being questioned. Thank God for your church.

“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”


“And it is to this you were called; because Christ also suffered on your behalf, leaving you an example so that you should follow in His steps…”

-The Apostle Peter

I prefer someone make comments rather than post articles. Don't do it again without asking first, Mr. Palestiniangetitwrong.

I've just deleted a comment (which I am loathe to do) not because I object to its comment but because I don't want people pasting articles in comments. At least without asking.

The gist of the article is the author was complaining about Rachel Corrie, calling her a terrorist sympathizer. He/she said:

"Her act was not one of peace, but of suicide. Clearly Ms. Corrie spent too much time in the company of suicide killers and their supporters."

If the author wishes to post comments along these lines, this is fine. Just don't paste articles.

My response is that I find the essay suspect, that I've seen no evidence that Ms. Corrie was anti-semitic. Further, one could say that Jesus, who associated with zealots (who advocated violent overthrow of their Roman oppressors), might also be identified as one who spent too much time with "terrorists" and that his death is his own fault.
