Truth Can Hurt

Tonight I read this quote while surfing through the links on my blog which I check daily. How does it make you feel when you read this? Uncomfortable? I think Bono from the band U2 is right on. Jesus likely wouldn't be hanging out at one of our "high-steeple, few-people" churches. "He didn't come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." Yes, He'd be with the hurting masses looking on them "like sheep without a shepherd" with arms and heart extended.

Bono writes:

"If Jesus Christ were on earth you'd find him in a gay bar in San Francisco. He'd be working with people suffering from AIDS. These people are the new lepers, just like the turn of BC / AD. Don't touch them, walk away from them. If you want to find
out where Jesus would be hanging out, it'll always be with the lepers." - Bono of U2
