The Belmont Drive Missionary Baptist Church had a strong message for the citizens in Hood River, Oregon and muslims and many on the left are incensed by it.
The churches outside reader boards display 2 messages. One says, “Wake up Christians. Allah is not our God. Muhammad not greater than Jesus.” The other says, “Only the bible is God’s word. “Holy book.” Koran is just another book.”
One Godless local said ““I literally had to stop and back up and make sure I saw what I saw and I was profoundly offended and upset by it.”
The mayor even took issue with the sign the Hood River Mayor, Paul Blackburn who said, “I was really annoyed and sad.”I am annoyed that in this political season there’s a solid case of ugly going on. I think it norms up this kind of behavior like ‘oh it’s okay to be a bigot now,’” he said.
This mayor could not be more wrong. Nothing in the sign was bigoted.
The Pastor has responded to the criticism’s.
Pastor Michael Harrington said
This one guy wrote in here that I’m a terrorists almost. You ought to see what he put in here!” Pastor Michael Harrington said as he read from the letter.
Harrington is defending the messages he put on the sign. He says everyone is over-reacting.
He says, “I’m not politically correct. I’ve never been politically correct, but I think I’m Biblically correct and that’s what matters to me.”
He also insists that he doesn’t hate Muslims and he is trying to educate people about the real GOD.
“It isn’t against any particular denomination. It’s just the fact that I have taught and will continue to teach that I have one God, one way of salvation, and one Bible that’s holy,” he said.
