This is how Christianity gets a bad name: A pastor running for Congress in Georgia is making national headlines for stating that Islam isn't a religion and isn't protected by the Constitution's guarantee of religious freedom.
Jody Hice has based his political career on his Christian faith -- fighting to display the Ten Commandments at a local courthouse, and organizing fellow pastors to endorse Republican political candidates from the pulpit.
But the truth is that Hice's fear-mongering about Muslims has nothing to do with Christianity, and everything to do with political extremism.
We need to show he doesn't speak for Christians right now, while his words are still in the news.
