E.W. Jackson, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, says humans who do not accept Jesus follow “some sort of false religion.” Many Christians probably agree with him. Many believers of other faiths apply a comparable standard to their religion, too.
Although Jackson spoke in a church, his words were inappropriate for a political candidate seeking a secular office. He is not running for bishop. Even if he were, his attitudes would attract opposition from co-religionists.
We would not pretend to be theologians, yet if hell exists as fire and brimstone then we fully expect to meet fellow Christians in the infernal regions.
