Christianity Today by Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin
Once again This is posted to remind us that many oppose what we believe and although we suppose they are in a minority their voices are so strident they overwhelm us with noise.

When I was coming out of the hall I saw several lesbian activists gathered outside. They came up to me and stated with tears in their eyes that those like me crucified Christ and burnt Jews in gas chambers. I tried to tell them something about Holy Scriptures and its moral truths, while they cited at me the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. They were ‘Christian workers’ though. But do they really need the Bible? For them the basic criterion of faith is public opinion, sealed in law at best. In a word, the truth is what we like. And if it is accepted by society, you dare not let out a peep in protest. They wouldn’t crucify Christ. They would simply put him in prison for ‘extremism’ and forbid the Jews to wear plaits so that they may not propagate masculinity and religious fanaticism.
Thank You Father for sharing your experience
