Women used to be ladies, but today the opposite is true! America has become a nation of whores and feminists! Feminism is also the religion fueling lesbianism.
The central bank is the worst thing to ever happen to America! Now we have to pay for three homes just to get one. America is in deep trouble!
"The central bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the Principles and form of our Constitution. I am an Enemy to all banks discounting bills or notes for anything but Coin. If the American People allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the People of all their Property until their Children will wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered."
—Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826)

With regards to the OP... yep... as a Christian I find that website is a mixture of truth, half truths and outright hypocrisy.
Take gay people as an example... For me, as a Christian, the Bible tells me that it is wrong for me to be a practising homosexual... However, Jesus tells me I must love everyone and Judge not.
In other words... I must apply the teaching to myself but force nothing onto others.
Too many Christians openly display hate to gay people because of scripture such as...
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Leviticus 18:22)
They take this one line and ignore the bigger message that the Bible as a whole gives.
This makes many of them hypocrites because they will happily eat pork, while ignoring the scripture which tells them they shouldn’t.
You cannot take individual lines from the bible and chuck them around like some kind of moral ninja throwing star to impale righteousness into the heart of others...
In my opinion spreading the word is more about the overall message of Love, kindness, peace, humbleness etc...
Besides... shouting at someone “You’re gonna burn in hell” normally drives them further away from God and as a Christian that should be the last thing you want to do!
I believe with all my heart that God is disgusted and saddened about what Christmas has deteriorated into in the minds of MOST people. I sincerely believe that God hates Christmas in America. Christmas has become so synthetic, so phony, so meaningless. It's a mad rush by businesses after Thanksgiving to make as much money as possible before Christmas day. Christmas has sadly become VERY commercialized in America. Money, money, money! Christmas isn't supposed to be about spending and giving, it's about the birth of Jesus Christ. It's about God's free gift of eternal life to a world of undeserving sinners. We all deserve to burn in Hell for our sins, but God in His wonderful love provided a way of escape for mankind, a plan of redemption. God wanted to redeem man back to Himself. So God sent His only begotten Son into the world to be rejected of men, despised, spit upon, beaten, mocked, tortured, bound and ultimately crucified to death as a criminal. Oh that people would seek the truth. Santa Claus is a mockery of the Savior, who knows everything and can be everywhere at one time. Interestingly, Santa spells S-A-T-A-N if you rearrange the letters. Coincidence?

That website doesn't give Christians a bad name. Looks like pretty mainstream stuff to me.
I would say it's Christians who give christians a bad name.
Who was it that said "I like your Christ but not your Christians"?
I think that points it out nicely that many proclaim but few follow.
