Governor's Christmas Card Draws Criticism
A Nashville pastor is questioning why Governor Bredesen chose to paint a picture of a teenage Muslim girl for his annual Christmas card. Bredesen's card shows a young Muslim girl that he met in Afghanistan last March. Pastor Maury Davis of Cornerstone Church told a Nashville TV station that the governor's message is convoluted and could be interpreted as an insult to Christianity.

cbcpreacher, this governor didn't keep religion out of it did he?

Trying to put an obnoxious cult in a good light is bad, even better if he had this on his Christmas card.

and even better yet, he gave this as a site,

I'm surprised at the response here. The issue is not that it was "a girl". Christ has been replaced, not by a fictitious reindeer or Santa, but by a figure of a religion that is not only not christian, but directly opposed to it. Also, again, if it were an undiluted, narrow road presentation of the true meaning of Christmas from a governor, people would be crying "separation of church and state".

The good pastor would have been more effective if he would have quietly asked the governor for the name and address of the young woman in order to have his church pray for her, or perhaps sneak a Bible or Gospel Tract to her, instead of playing the politic card and making himself a heroic Christian soldier on center stage.

If he puts on the EID stamp, which apparently is again available
then that would be bad.

It was first issued in 2001.

Anyway, just like a bad penny or demon it is still around.

Only if elves santa and reindeer were bad or worse in the first place, which of course they are not.

I think the Gov was a bit wishy washy on this one - but its no worse than elves or santa or reindeer.

It would have been great for the Gov to use a real Christmas message - but among politicians such a thing is almost unheard of.

I guess no one seems to have any problem over the massive amounts of cards that feature santa, elves, snowmen etc...but yeah..this picture of a young girl on a Christmas card?? It can't be!!!!
We need to lighten up a bit, and it really only matters what was in the heart of that gov when he used this picture, if it truly was to show that God cares about all, then great....I think some pastors just need to stick to feeding their flock, now that would be a novel idea wouldn't it!!
Merry Christmas!

WOW! If a Christian had said that God loves only Christians we would be branded as narrow minded and arrogant, not to mention prejudice. There would also be a lawsuit and a bill would be written to outlaw Christmas cardws with the REAL message of Christmas on them! Just goes to show that everything but the truth is politically correct.
