Today in aggressive religious ownership: Farah warns Carrie Underwood not to 'profane' Jesus' name

by Jeremy Hooper

For her support of marriage equality, WorldNetDaily founding editor Joseph Farah is accusing pro-gay country singer Carrie Underwood of blasphemy:

God did warn us not to profane His holy name.

I don’t think that just means misusing His name as a curse word. I think we do that when we represent ourselves as followers of God but betray His Word.

That’s blasphemy – and there’s just too much of it coming from people claiming to be Christians.
FULL: CARRIE UNDERWOOD AND THE LOST CHURCH [WND]

I love how the deeply conservative Christians, the ones always making self-victimized claims about their religious freedom being under attack, are so quick to place a stranglehold on Jesus and his supposedly lock-solid teachings whenever any other Bible believer puts forth a differing view. Many might assume that a thinking God who instilled within his children the capacity for deep thought and analysis might actually want folks to explore the realities of the natural world through a prism deeper than personal interpretation of a handful of multi-translated, man-written passages. Unfortunately far too many with the loudest Christian voices have determined that religious freedom means condemning as I do, or else.

Carrie Underwood represents millions of Christian Americans who are SICK of the way people like Joseph Farah have hijacked the church conversation in this country. Brava to the gifted, big hearted "American Idol" winner for speaking up when silence would've been the far easier option.
