Let's not have a civil discussion, shall we?

Day of Prayer; the wrong kind joining civility statement?



Uncivil for church leader to remove his name from civility statement?


A leader of one of America's largest Christian denominations wants his name removed from a statement calling for a more civil national discourse. Why? Too many of the wrong sort of Christians have signed the statement.



"The problem is the tent that has grown so large on the signatures of this that they are including people who are supportive of gay marriage and abortion rights," explained a spokesman for George O. Wood, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God, the nation's second largest Pentecostal group.


This boggles my mind.   Is he saying that he doesn't want a civil discussion because people that don't believe like him can discuss something he doesn't believe in ?

Welcome, and why are you here?

I'm sure you have better things to do.
