Statement on Hate Groups

The front page exposure that hate groups have been receiving is very troubling. Many people want to loudly condemn the groups that they despise, and then remain quiet about the ones that generate from their own side of the political isle.

We here at Ed CONDEMN ALL HATE GROUPS. Whether it be white supremacists protesting in Charlottesville  (or any place else for that matter), or antifa and their plans for mass uprising starting November the 4th, hate groups serve no useful purpose.

We fully support the 1st Amendment and the rights of all Americans to peacefully protest, but too many times the gatherings of hate groups do not fall into the category of peaceful – and that is just not acceptable.

Matthew chapter 5 verses 43 and 44 says,  “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’   But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,”

As Christians, we need to pray for those who make up these hate groups, but we certainly shouldn’t sit idly by and say nothing and pretend that all is well. Stand up and let the Love of the Lord be heard – the hate groups have no problem making their beliefs publicly known.
