    It would be refreshing if people of faith spent more time practicing their faith than advertising it.

    I'd like to think Jesus would be kicking some serious politician hypocrite *** if he were around today.

    Here is just a theory, because I do see alot more advertising than practice as well..... Could it be that people who have more social issues than whats average turn to religion? Not to sound like Im saying all religious people have social issues because I know thats not true. Lets just say a person with a superiority complex may have trouble fitting in socially and then turns to god in hopes to better themselves, which may actually be a step in the right direction if practiced, but may take years to overcome completely. ...I know there's many other issues outside of superiority complexes. I picked superiority complex because that to me seems to be the one of the top issues with Christians.......It may be that people with that complex turn to religion to further their feeling of superiority....so maybe thats a bad example. Just through in any socially inept sort of issue,...alot of those types of issues are because of poor communication, which may lead to lead to some sort of resentment to society which even further pushes them away from the social norm. These people may turn to god for help, and may be practicing but just arnt there yet, and the advertising is part of them not being quite socially acceptable. Could this be something?

    I'm sure that plays a part, but in all honesty, I think its simpler than that.

    I think its easier to have a bumper sticker than abide a philosophy. I liken it to flag burning.

    You see its real easy to get angry about people burning the American flag and want that to be against the law. Its infinitely harder to realize that flag represents freedom, so to make burning the flag illegal is a bigger disrespect to that flag than burning it. That relates back to our discussion, because its easier to wear a cross and call yourself a Christian, than actually going out and working with this less fortunate, for example. Symbols are easy to use, its way harder to live by the meaning behind them.

    That cop should probably lose his job. That was some pretty horrible police work. All he had to do is ask for her registration.

    Alright not to be provocative but I don't understand the WWJD saying. Jesus apparently didn't make the best choices and ended up nailed to a cross.

    You're looking at that saying way too literally. It doesn't mean someone should go around claiming to be the son of God or anything of that sort. Jesus was supposed to be kind, selfless, giving, loving, etc. WWJD simply means look at the situation and think about how you should react in regards to displaying those same qualities.

    I wish more Christians approached issues facing them and the country with a WWJD approach instead of how they do now.

    First, you have to define what a Christian is. Going to church, proclaiming yourself one, and criticizing others do not make one a Christian.
    Who is a Christian? A hypocrite who talks the talk, seeking temporal power over others, or a humble man who quietly tries to walk the walk by doing his best to love his neighbor as himself?
