But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness, you are blessed. And do not fear their intimidation, and do not be troubled, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you yet with gentleness and reverence; and keep a good conscience so that in the thing in which you are slandered, those who revile your good behavior in Christ will be put to shame.  1 Peter 3: 14-16

Dear idiots…

That’s how I want to begin this letter, with a pejorative. It is a true pejorative. Christians who defend “Social Justice” on the grounds that the Bible gives us imperatives to help the poor and unfortunate are idiots. They are a specific kind of idiot, however,...
