We’ve all heard it …..”I love the sinner ….. I just hate their sin.”
This statement has been critiqued a thousand ways. While some may use this phrase with the best of intentions, it has proven to be unhelpful and alienating.

We think Tony’s point is one that needs to be heard loud and clear. Will you help us get this youtube clip out there far and wide? Share it with your friends and contacts.
