Recently, an anti-religion video entitled Why I Hate Religion But Love Jesus received national attention after going viral and getting over 20 million views on YouTube. Its main points are as follows:
- Jesus came to abolish religion.
- God called religious people whores.
- Religion tells divorced moms that God doesn't love them.
- The church doesn't feed the poor.
- That religion starts wars.
If the video had only received a few hundred views with that kind of nonsense, we would have ignored it. But with over twenty million views and counting, we felt that we had an obligation to explain why none of that is historically or theologically accurate.
With Easter fast approaching, we have decided to fight YouTube video with YouTube video, with a response that fights fiction with facts. We are asking Christians all over the United States to send this response video to as many people as possible through email, facebook, twitter, and any other social media services.
Thanks for your help and may God bless you.
