Posted on 01/08/2012 2:26:35 PM PST by My Favorite Headache
A group of "Christ Warriors" in Texas just outside of Dallas torched over 22 pairs of Air Jordan's (a lot of them the very ones people were rioting over during Christmas) on Friday night.
The video is just making the rounds today on the net but they intend on making bigger statements shortly..that this was just the start.
They are saying shoes and items like these are basically what is wrong with society in general and that at the end of the day they aren't worth anything without Christ in your life and at the gates of Heaven. Arguments have been made that they should have donated to homeless people...fact is...the group goes into the ghettos and bad areas of Dallas and help hands on and that the shoes would actually get some of them killed.

re-post the link dude it did not take.
with that said I am glad they burned them. I saw the riots and that was going into the ground.
And somewhere there are people without shoes...

What is wrong with these shoe burners?
What is the problem with these shoes? Why might they get you killed?
Seriously? This group paid $100+ for a pair of sneakers just to burn them? They could have burned the boxes as some sort of protest and given the sneakers to Salvation Army or some other charity to give away. Sounds pretty stupid to me if they really did burn the sneakers.
Leave the theatre and the theatrics to the muslims.
This is what gives Christians a bad name.
If you watch the video...you will see them burning all of them...
Might want to google air jordan riots christmas
"Christ Warriors" don't need to burn shoes to make their point, they need to loudly fight back with pictures like the one described or stop the building of more mosques in American towns and cities. Our President needs to be reminded of our Christian faith with an 's' as in faiths...not kowtow to Islam for any reason.
Why didn’t they spend the $100 + and buy six-seven pairs of reasonably priced shoes and donate them to homeless shelters or children groups or some other charity.
BURN ALL SHOES! JESUS DIDN’T WEAR SHOES!
and did exactly what?
God instructed us as to how exactly to make burnt offerings and what to offer - air Jorden’s wasn’t part of of it.
And the ‘hood did not rise up in anger and cut Christian’s heads off or burn any churches.
Just goes to show the ‘hood is more civilaized than Islam.
Despite the money they spent on the shoes, they are right about mad consumerism/ culture rot that drives people to kill and steal for a pair of shoes. The money spent on the shoes is irrelevant. The government spends trillions on poverty, so why are there still kids without shoes? Please don’t any one pretend that the couple hundred dollars is going to make a difference when churches are spending millions on their own churches instead of donating it to people in poverty.
