Today's letter - I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here is more insightful than Jesus

Dear Governor Schwarzenegger -

Last night on I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, Heidi and Spencer Pratt talked a lot about their relationship with Jesus and the importance of being Christian. Heidi talked about her dream of becoming a missionary while showing that she didn’t have the skills to survive a couple of days in a relatively posh jungle. Spencer talked about trying to channel Jesus with all his heart mind body and spirit, while verbally and physically assaulting his campmates.

Daniel Baldwin had a Celebrity Monologue and called this “Convenient Christianity:”

“It’s real convenient to tell people how Christian you are, and yell out ‘Praise God’ and ‘God Bless’ ... and then climb up poles and knock water bottles out of their hands and tell them that you’re going to kill them. Where is the Christianity in that?”

I know exactly what he is talking about. I get hate mail that makes me want to wash my eyes out with holy water. So-called Christians running around shooting doctors and bashing homosexuals, preaching love and tolerance for their neighbor, but acting quite differently.

"And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Ephesians 4:32

Regardless of what people say, God knows what people do in the voting booths.

Please, Governor, help Californians realize that what they did with Prop 8 was wrong. Instead of just talking about doing the right thing, I wish you would actually reach out and join the fight for marriage equality.

Sincerely,
