The irony, the predictable reality Young was laughing to himself about just days before, is their comments were in response to a video in which the Fellowship Church pastor explained the difference between the three-word phrase and the organization, endorsing the former and disavowing the latter.

Texas Adoption: New Law Restricts Placement For Gays, Non-Christians | Austin, TX Patch
New York's recent legalization of gay marriage is being hailed by many as a watershed moment in the history of the fight for equal rights for same sex couples. Whatever the long-term consequences of this decision may be, chances are, in the near term, it will be met with increased opposition from Christian conservatives. Their efforts, which reveal a fundamental misunderstanding of the nature of marriage, are misguided at best and sinful at worst.

While not an outright ban on adoption by non-Christians, the majority of agencies working with the state to provide services do reference Christianity, either officially or on their individual websites.
Who is a Christian terrorist? I accidentally stumbled into a debate a while back, in which I was informed that there is no such thing. It seemed that a list of just a few examples might be a useful tool. Who exactly is a Christian?
