Judging a person for their portrayal of a fictional character...

I watch the news pour in
About the tragic passing
Of Heath Ledger
He was an actor
Who did well
But how do we measure
The worth of one
Over another
He played parts
That might be called
The most disturbing news
I heard though
Was about a church
Protesting his funeral
I could not imagine
How a group could judge
Him for playing
A certain role
Good lord is that what
We've stooped to
Rest in peace
Heath, sad to see you go

Portrayal or reality - God directs us to love one another as He loves us. I think this 'church' is not one that promotes His word nor love. Makes you wonder about what message is being sent to this congregation in other aspects of life.

God bless you. Kathy

So call Christians don't go to Church
for worshiping God anymore.
Pointing fingers is their main purpose now
even among themselves.
I know all Church people are not this way, but
I hear a lot of this profiling stuff going on.
I have a friend who smokes, but his Church
forbids him to join; he can come to Church,
but because he smokes he can not join
Most of the people that go to his Church are overweight
FAT, they really pig out my friend said.
Isn't it a sin to go home and eat 10 candy bars in
one setting?
Yes, it is very disturbing.
Love ya Lynn
