What Christianity Isn't

Every so often I am astounded.

I have received e-mails from my denomination today about assisting the people of Haiti. As I write this, there is aid being collected by people all over the country. A large number of people doing this are people of faith. The faith they have, no matter where they fall on the theological spectrum, is about caring for others as Jesus would want us to. This is what Christianity is.

In this You Tube clip from Pat Robertson speaking about Haiti, we learn what Christianity is not. I am not sure what religious tradition Robertson is now, but it's obvious that he's given up Christianity.
