Evangelism gone wrong: Mormon and Catholic battle over Jesus



And I thought militant atheists needed to tone down the rhetoric and ease up their attacks. Talk about a theological debate that ended up being anything but godly:

About 3 p.m. Tuesday, two men near 800 East and 900 South in Salt Lake City got into a discussion over whether Jesus was a Mormon or a Catholic. The discussion led to blows, police said, and when officers arrived, one man was unconscious and the other was sitting on a sidewalk. The man still conscious was intoxicated, police said, and arrested on suspicion of assault and public intoxication.

I know some people see Jesus as a warrior, a belief that, to me makes no sense. If he really had been a warrior, then he would have been exactly the messiah the first century Jews were looking for. But, regardless, this is taking things a bit far.

For heretical insights on Jesus’ combat ability, check out the original “South Park” sketch “The Spirit of Christmas.”
