You should be [worried for your grandson’s soul]. If there’s any way you can get that child away from that… his father telling him that… If there’s any way you can get him enrolled in a Christian school or get him into some, you know, they have daily Vacation Bible School and things. Or youth group.

There’s all kinds of things you could do to kind of get him into some positive influences.

As if atheist parents are automatically bad influences on their children.

Of course, if an atheist grandparent ever suggested taking a child out of a religious school and away from his religious parents, you can bet Robertson and his colleagues would be crying “Christian persecution.”

Maybe someone can bring that up in a letter to the show. It seems to be the only way to get through to him.

For Certain Christians, Lying for Jesus is Justified in the Abortion Wars

Leviticus 19:11 makes clear: "Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another."There's quite a bit of the Bible that conservative Christian activists tend to leave out, but Biblical prohibitions against lying are routinely given short shrift by those intent on seeing God's will done on Earth. We don't have to look far for examples of it -- from Christians arguing that LGBT people are predators to politicians pretending that being gay is a choice, these lies are common.The Washington Post has a good look at another popular outlet for faith-based lying: the abortion debate, and the notoriously deceptive idea of "crisis pregnancy centers." Reporter Petula Dvorak examines the work of one Virginia activist, Pat Lohman, in particular.shutterstock_296153609
