Ann Coulter made news by picking a fight with Delta Airlines over a seat. How would you respond if some one need your seat and you have to move to a different seat? Jesus said, ‘And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloke forbid not to take thy coat also’ (Luke 6:29). If some one slaps, you on your cheek, offer the other cheek also. If some one take away your cloke, let them take away your coat also. If some one wants your seat, let them have it. Move on to the reassigned seat. Needless to say, Jesus’ teaching is hard to practice in this area, but that is what he taught us.
We are seeing a disturbing trend of upholding conservative values without exhibiting Christian compassion. Such a practice make us look more like pharisees than Jesus.
