Memo: Hate won’t stop Christians from praying for victims of the San Bernardino shooting

Rampant Christophobia seemed to be the order of the day after Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Tex., and other GOP presidential candidates announced they were praying for the victims of the tragic shooting in San Bernardino, Calif.

Liberals of all stripes went ballistic after Cruz made his announcement, and the hate flowed freely from all corners.  Members of the media, liberal politicians and even some “news” outlets engaged in some of the most shameful and over-the-top attacks against Christians in modern memory.

The New York Daily News, for example, tweeted this:

Newsbusters’ Kristine Marsh posted tweets issued by left-wing journalists and politicians, including one from Washington Post columnist Gene Weingarten:

A trip into the dark underbelly of the left-wing Twitterverse revealed a number of angry tweets, many of which are simply too profane and obscene to quote here.  Reading the tweets, one can almost imagine the individuals involved pounding on spittle-flecked keyboards, their faces red, their teeth clenched in anger.

Two tweets issued by Mike Dickinson, a far-left wing politician who once sought the House seat formerly occupied by Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., read:

In 2014, Dickinson said he was okay with exterminating five million Americans.

Dan Savage, the gay sex columnist and “anti-bullying” activist who once told Bill Maher he wished all Republicans were “(expletive deleted) dead,” issued this:

I’ve seen the term “prayer shaming” thrown about, but this isn’t “shaming,” it’s hate – pure, unadulterated, blind, seething hate.  Personally, I’m not aware of a single Christian dissuaded from praying because a bunch of angry leftists hurl insults and profanities.  It’s more likely those Christians would be encouraged to pray even harder – specifically for those tossing the insults.

These messages of hatred, however, have done one thing – they’ve helped to ensure that the ever-widening gulf between liberals and conservatives will not be bridged any time soon.
