New Alabama Governor Robert Bentley wants his citizens to be part of his family – his Christian Family.
The Birmingham News reports that in a speech to a crowd at a church where Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. was once pastor, Bentley told attendees:
“…if you’re a Christian and your saved…It makes you and me brother and sister.” He went on to add “’Now I will have to say that, if we don’t have the same daddy, we’re not brothers and sisters. So anybody here today who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, I’m telling you, you’re not my brother and you’re not my sister, and I want to be your brother.”
After some questioned the Governor’s words, his press handler said: “He is the governor of all the people, Christians, non-Christians alike.”
Later, when asked if he meant to be insulting to people of other faiths, Bentley said “we’re not trying to insult anybody.”
