Maybe he's just inarticulate -- a compliment? -- but John Edwards needs to learn the basics of Christianity and get a little humility rather than presuming to speak on Jesus' behalf.
"I think that Jesus would be disappointed in our ignoring the plight of those around us who are suffering and our focus on our own selfish short-term needs," Edwards told the site. "I think he would be appalled, actually."
Edwards also said he was against teacher-led prayers in public schools, but he added that "allowing time for children to pray for themselves, to themselves, I think is not only OK, I think it's a good thing."
So John Edwards thinks children should be praying to themselves rather than to God? Who knows. It's also not clear how America is corporately "ignoring the plight" of "those around us", since the Bible never talks about corporate charity, only individual charity. A guy who owns the most expensive home in his county has some room for improvement in the charity department himself.
After his anti-Christian blogger debacle you'd think John Edwards would want to stop digging, but apparently not. Alas, lecturing and pontificating aren't going to get Edwards out of the hole with Christians.
