Tuesday Youday: Jason Cornell

Talk about creative leadership – this is a perfect example of a peaceful way to “attack” your enemy. I’ve experienced the protestors from Westboro Baptist Church firsthand, at the 2001 Churchwide Assembly in Indianapolis, and it’s not a pretty sight. There were little kids on the side of the street screaming “God hates fags!” over and over again. It was a complete turn off to me, and had I not known who Christ really was myself, I would not have ever given a second thought to Christianity. No matter how you feel about homosexuality, I think it’s hard to see how the words “God” and “hates” can be used in the same sentence. The God I know hates no one. Instead, God responds out of amazing acts of love.

This student used his creativity to love his neighbor and challenge their actions all at the same time. Brilliant! Job well done, Jason!

    You know T, I imagine there are TONS of places where this could happen in Atlanta. All it would take is some research and organization – I\’m sure we could pull it off!

    Wow. What an amazingly beautiful way to show support for all of the people that they are hating, and all of the yelling and hating that they are doing on the other side of the street is probably driving people to give who would otherwise have just ignored the whole issue! He uses love and creativity! That's a really inspiring story! Are there places in Atlanta where the same tactic could be tried?
