Christian activist Randall Terry has reappeared in the news in recent days as the spokesman for the parents of Terri Schiavo. Terry, founder of the anti-abortion group Operation Rescue and the Society for Truth and Justice, appeared on Fox News at least four times in the past four days -- on the March 18 edition of Hannity & Colmes, and during live coverage of the Schiavo case on March 20 and March 21. But Terry has a controversial past that was not fully disclosed in any of his Fox News appearances or on the March 19 edition of National Public Radio's Weekend Edition, which aired a brief clip from Terry. In all but one of those instances, Terry was identified only as the Schindler family spokesman.

For the rest of the story, go to .

Here is one of his quotes:

"Let a wave of intolerance wash over you. I want you to let a wave of hatred wash over you. Yes, hate is good.... If a Christian voted for Clinton, he sinned against God. It's that simple. Our goal is a Christian Nation. we have a biblical duty, we are called by God to conquer this country. We don't want equal time. We don't want Pluralism. We want theocracy. Theocracy means God rules. I've got a hot flash. God rules."

My opinion? I sure wouldn't want this guy being my spokesman. I wouldn't want him running the country, either. He has his right to speak out, and we need to defend that. It just seems a shame to me that there is a substantial number of Americans that take him seriously!

Lots of non-Christians are tolerant, or at least fairly tolerant of Christians, and vice-versa. Is Randall Terry an exception to the rule? I don't believe he is saying things most Christians would like to say but are afraid to. I don't believe most Christians have that kind of hatred in them.
