They Call Themselves Christians

I don’t know but when I went to catechism school we were taught that Jesus taught love and understand not hate and bigotry.
‘Christians’ Create Grisly Haunted House Claiming Pulse Nightclub Victims Got What They Deserved

Chicago doesn’t tend to be one of the cities one thinks of when one thinks of the religious right. Unfortunately, they do exist here, and some of them decided to do something unspeakably disgusting and cruel for Halloween. Calling themselves “Christians,” which they aren’t, they put together a haunted house with 10 rooms – one of which showed the mass shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando.

Pulse was a club frequented by the LGBTQ community, and there are many on the religious right who seem to think that the victims of that horror simply got what was coming to them. The so-called “Christians” who put this atrocity together called it, “THE ROOM: A JOURNEY TO HELL.”

What’s the implication there? It’s pretty clear. In each of the 10 rooms were scenes in which people supposedly made choices that would send them to hell. The inclusion of the Pulse shooting indicates that the group who put this together believes that the clubgoers who were brutally murdered that night went to hell due to their “choice” of living the “homosexual lifestyle.”
And it gets even worst…
The haunted house was to happen at Fernwood Elementary School, which is part of Chicago Public Schools. An elementary school is not an appropriate venue for anything like this, even though children under 13 were supposedly prohibited from going through it. CPS very wisely decided not to allow the haunted house at all, according to the Windy City Times, and a spokesperson for CPS said:
“The event organizers mischaracterized the true content of the event, and we did not approve any association with the activities the organizers have now advertised. The event will not be held on CPS property.”
I know lets lie to get our bigotry into the school.

Yeah, these so called Christians give all the other Christians a bad name. The other churches in the area should speak up, their silence means that they condone this hate.
