Bruce Cockburn quote

27 Mar

“To me, the message of Christ is so evidently love and freedom, I just don’t understand how anyone can read into the message and get anything but that,” he says. ” And it . . . [angers] me . . . when I see people hustling that other kind of knee-jerk belief — all rules and conformity and non-freedom — exemplified by some of the TV evangelists and David Dukes of the world, spouting off this stuff that they claim is Christianity. I hate the idea that people might actually think this is what it’s all about. Their message is so anti-love.”

– from “A Rising Northern Star: Canadian Bruce Cockburn Wins More U.S. Converts” by Brad Buchholz, Dallas Morning News, 12 January 1992. Submitted by Nigel Parry.
