YORK, ENGLAND - APRIL 07: Archbishop of York Dr John Sentamu submerges into a water tank a local church goer as he baptises the new Christian during an Easter Saturday ceremony on April 7, 2012 in York, England. Baptism of adults by total immersion is a symbolic ritual signifying a believer's death to their old life and a re-birth in Christ. New Christians are baptised into the faith the day before Easter Sunday which celebrates the resurrection of Jesus, three days after his execution on the cross.

A CNN writer recently said, "People who call themselves Christians can hurt the faith the most." 

Really? I agree that they can cause warped perceptions or impressions.

Debatable human statements claiming to be "Christian" cannot help or "hurt the faith" any more than questionable statements claiming to be "scientific" can help or hurt gravity.
