Andy responds to an email he received from a lady claiming that he is CONTRADICTing Jesus by saying other religions are wrong.
Here's the email:
"Hello! My name is Summer; I'm a woman from Oregon. After reading about the Contradict movement, I do have a couple comments/questions for you. I do believe that you are CONTRADICTing the teachings of Jesus; it seems that you are saying Christianity should be the only religion on planet earth. Thing is, Jesus taught that we need to coexist with everyone on the planet. Matthew 22:39 says to love your neighbor as you love yourself. That's just one verse out of many of the teachings of Jesus that says to not persecute others based on the things that they have done or are currently partaking in.
If you truly wanted to convert people to Christianity, you would have patience with those that do not agree. Shunning them and telling them their way of thinking is wrong is not how to break through to anyone.
It is very confusing to me that after reading the Bible, and the words of Jesus, that you think "it would be wonderful if you could simply (and legally) replace all those COEXIST bumper stickers with another that reads CONTRADICT." That's the opposite of what is expected of Christians.
Christians are "persecuted" because of things like this; it makes it look like you think you are better and above everyone else.
Also, the fact that some people never found Jesus' skeleton is NOT proof that he ascended into the heavens."

Andy speaks with high school senior Morgan Lunsford about the Church's involvement in the Crusades.
Does the Church need to get off its high horse when addressing Islamic invasions, Islamic terrorism, and the many Islamic nations that treat women far from equal because of the Church's involvement in the Crusades?
What are the Crusades? Why did they start? Were there any good reasons that the Church was involved in the Crusades? Why does the Church get such a bad wrap about the Crusades? Did leaders in the Church condemn any of the evil actions done by members of their side during the time of the Crusades, or only centuries later?

Ben Fisher’s back from his Reconnect sabbatical and he guides three high school seniors through Sye Ten Bruggencate’s website, “Proof That God Exists.” The website has an interactive questionnaire that uses presuppositional apologetics to guide visitors to the conclusion that God exists based on the visitor’s admission that absolute truth exists, that you know things to be true, that logic exists and that it is universal, not made of matter, and does not change. If visitors don’t come to the conclusion that truth, knowledge, and logic exist in absolute, unchangeable, immaterial terms, then they are eventually redirected to Disneyland’s ticket ordering web page.
