One last thought on Philly
Perhaps this was not her intention, but on the surface it appears that, to Dembe, Christian groups are equivalent to the KKK and the Nazis. Christians are now the same as a murdering band of thugs hell-bent on turning back the clock of racial equality? They are now no different than a regime that systematically slaughtered 6 million people in less than a decade? Now anytime we disagree with the message we must demonize the messenger?
And, this ought to not only be offensive to the ears of Christians, but also to the victims and survivors of the hatred perpetrated by the Nazis and KKK. How awful it is to minimize the pain and loss inflicted on these victims. The memory of the lives that were destroyed by the lynch mobs and holocaust should not be compared to the inconvenience “suffered” by the attendees of the OutFest.
