In a speech yesterday the newly elected governor of Alabama said to a group of people meeting in a church, If you do not believe in Jesus you are not my brothers or sisters. Their has been a storm of criticism of him because of this remark. Was he wrong to say it? Should he apologize?
First even governors and presidents have freedom of speech.
President Barack Obama often refers to Jesus and to Christian beliefs.
Many groups refer to others within that group as brothers and sisters.
Many soldiers feel other soldiers are brothers. I consider those I was in combat with as my brothers.
Many black people refer to other black people as brother or sister.
The bible specifically says that all Christians are brothers and sisters.
Does a person lose the right to these feelings on being elected to public office.?
Something to consider.
