    So 3 out of 7-10,000 christians aren't hypocrites, and are actually decent people? That sounds about right.

    So you take an article that has not been authenticated as anything but urban legend to condemn christians (who also happen to believe what you consider to be an urban legend)?

    Well, I based my post from the article and history. The bible has never been authenticated and is nothing but urban legend too. But seriously, what do you care? Stop being butthurt because you know I'm right.

    Looks like the story is a hoax.

    A very heartwarming, poignant and apparently fake story has been making the rounds on social media and religious blogs this week.

    The anecdote, which has been shared more tens of thousands on Facebook, features a preacher identified as Pastor Jeremiah Steepek, an individual pictured as a haggard, homeless man with a straggly beard.
    And later in the article...

    Perhaps more tellingly, Snopes, as well as Hoax-Slayer.com, revealed the stirring image of Steepek was in fact a picture of an English homeless man taken by photographer Brad Gerrard and readily available on Flikr and Tumblr.
    Link to article: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3654742.html

    I blame JoeB...
    Antes de que vengas a juzgarme por que escribo el inglés con errores te pregunto: Cuantos idiomas tu hablas?! Solo uno? Y vienes a juzgar mi inteligencia?! Por favor mirate en el espejo y veras en él reflejo la imagen clara de la estupidez...

    If it makes you feel better, I don't look homeless and generally have no one but church staff greet me at new churches. I don't hold it against anyone though, none of us is perfect and most will admit it.

    Adding to that, some people are just shy. I wouldn't exactly call it sinful for a person to be a bit introverted.

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.
