Not very Christian way to behave

Published 22/05/2015

What is it with the (allegedly) "Christian" Church?

In recent years, we've had two "Christian" world leaders declare an illegal war on Iraq; we've had sexual abuse revealed in the Catholic Church (we all knew, they just never admitted it).

Now I see a cake shop owned by "Christians" has been taken to the courts for anti-gay discrimination.

DUP politicians have now come out (forgive the pun) to say this decision should not have been made against the shop because the owners have a right to their "Christian" attitudes and actions.

Where - or when - exactly did Jesus say he espoused such kinds of attitudes, or these actions?

None of these things seem very Christian to me.
