My friends, this is my family’s former home church. My grandfather was deacon there, my mother is buried there. I have friends who go there. I have criticized it before. I will not cease from my efforts. Dennis Terry is not what he claims he is, but if members begin to question, they will be removed. Until someone removes him, he will attempt to fill Jerry Falwell’s shoes.
“I don’t care what the liberals say, I don’t care what the naysayers say, this nation was founded as a Christian nation…There is only one God and his name is Jesus. I’m tired of people telling me that I can’t say those words.. Listen to me, If you don’t love America, If you don’t like the way we do things I have one thing to say – GET OUT. We don’t worship Buddha, we don’t worship Mohammad, we don’t worship Allah, we worship God, we worship God’s son Jesus Christ.”
Terry is no stranger to outlandish statements about those whom he deems less than human. He doesn’t sound orthodox, nor American.
This nation was not intended to be a theocracy, but Terry and even Santorum would seek to make it so. This country will lose its soul in these attempts, to make it a theocracy, and so will we.
I think of people like Muhammad, Elvis, others… who had they submitted to Christ, had they taken their talents and passion for those talents to service of the Church… I ponder how different this world may be today. I wonder, if Terry took his passion for inflammatory, and wrong, rhetoric, and turned it to Christ, how better might Baton Rouge – how better this world, may be.
