Offensive faith

 I believe it to be a great mistake to present Christianity as something charming and popular with no offense.... We cannot blink at the fact that gentle Jesus meek and mild was so stiff in his opinions and so inflammatory in his language that he was thrown out of church, stoned, hunted from place to place, and finally gibbeted as a firebrand and a public danger. Whatever his peace was, it was not the peace of an amiable indifference.
--Dorothy Sayers

Is there some reason for you to put this crap in your blog?

Anon 9:00, it would help if I understood what about this post is offensive to you. Please explain so that I may answer. Thanks.

Profound quote. I, too, wonder what people find disturbing about it, as opposed to eye opening.
