Don't equate Brother Jed with Christianity

In regard to Brother Jed's appearance a few months ago, I am not only shocked about everyone's reactions but stunned by the obscene judgments he was spitting out at students.

The whole scene should have been avoided in retrospect, because all it caused was a mass number of students huddled around in battle form while both students and Brother Jed took stabs at people's lives. I am concerned not only because of Brother Jed's radical approach at converting students to Christians but also the negative image many Christians now have because of this.

I am not trying to cut down what Brother Jed or any students were saying but merely trying to get everyone to understand that is not how Christianity works. Christianity is a relationship between oneself and God, and nothing Brother Jed or students said have anything to do with that.
