Does Secretary Kerry Hate Ethiopian Christians?

Posted by addisethiopia on May 7, 2014

Secretary of State John Kerry, stopping in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to visit with U.S. Embassy staff, implied that religious tenets created two thousand years ago were inappropriate for modern society.
 
Mr. Kerry said:
 
This is a time here in Africa where there are a number of different cross-currents of modernity that are coming together to make things even more challenging. Some people believe that people ought to be able to only do what they say they ought to do, or to believe what they say they ought to believe, or live by their interpretation of something that was written down a thousand plus, two thousand years ago. That’s not the way I think most people want to live.
 
LA  la-oe-0323-kapya-kaomaMr. Kerry is certainly provoking, arguably, the first Christian nation in the world, Ethiopia. He used this visit to pursue the ongoing anti-Christian agenda of the global elite. How disrespectful, shallow, arrogant and dangerous! Would Mr. Kerry make similar statements during his frequent visits in the apartheid state of Saudi Arabia? Imagine the uproar, if the foreign minister of Ethiopia came to Washington D.C to tell Americans, “ Some people believe that people ought to be able to only do what they say they ought to do, or to believe what they say they ought to believe, or live by their interpretation of something that was written down three hundred years ago by the founding fathers of the United States.
 
Well, let me end by quoting The Good Book that was written two thousand years ago:
 
The fear of the Lord is seen in hating evil: pride, a high opinion of oneself, the evil way, and the false tongue, are unpleasing to me. [Prov 8:13]
