Matthew Dowd, the former GOP Political consultant who turned into an ABC political analyst, just tweeted out what is perhaps the stupidest tweet I’ve ever seen.

You ready for it?

IKR. Instapundit rightly responded that “Christian isn’t a synonym for nice.”

I actually think this is more common than we might think. I think for a while now, even Christians have confused being Christian with being nice. But that’s not how I read the gospels. Being Christian doesn’t mean being nice, it’s being loving. And love sometimes means hard truths. Christianity doesn’t being a door mat.

And this view is pernicious because it essentially takes Jesus Christ out of the equation. So now you can be a Christian without following Christ. But that’s the thing. You can’t. There is no Christianity without Christ. Sorry for the hard truth. I guess I’m not being nice.
