Christian witness: God is love, and He hates you

What do you when street preachers appear proclaiming a message of hate?

Jackrabbit's response was to distribute "Love" signs among the audience.

Jackrabbit Goes Down the Rabbit Hole: Fear, Loathing, and "The Laramie Project": Jackrabbit vs. the Street Preacher:
By the time I got back, the hate preachers were in full force, and I suddenly went from wet-my-pants terrified to extremely determined, which was totally a God thing. I started by working the crowd with my big yellow signs, handing them out to anybody who wanted one, and then stood on the top of the amphitheater in the middle of the quad with a huge LOVE poster.

Isn't repentance important? Indeed it is, but I'm not sure that this is the best witness to the need for repentance:

... when a girl in a very short plaid skirt bent over to talk to her friends, he pulled out a camera and basically up-skirted her. He did all this while wearing a "no porn" button on his shirt. I found this very interesting for a man who claimed that he had stopped sinning the moment he accepted Jesus.

I think I prefer the examples of repentance of wicked politicians like John Profumo and Adriaan Vlok.

That's the sort of thing dreamed up by the opposition, that notice.

I'm not religious as you are aware Steve but I do strongly believe in redemption of a secular nature

Profumo was someone who redeeemed himself a million times over with the work he did.

Vlok's gesture of repentance was certainly biblical. I doubt if he was insincere he would have gone to the ends he did
