Twitter Nails Conservative Christians with #ThingsJesusNeverSaid

With Easter approaching this weekend — the celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ accompanied by an egg hunt followed by eating chocolate bunnies and marshmallow peeps – Twitter was alive with contributions to #ThingsJesusNeverSaid.


Whether by coincidence or Divine Providence, the week leading up to one of Christianity’s holiest days has been filled by a national conversation over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act.

While some have called the law discriminatory towards the LGBT community, others insist that it is a matter of personal religious freedom and values that should not be compromised by having to bake a cake for a same-sex wedding celebration.

Additionally, there has been a great deal of discussion this week whether it is a sin to cater a gay wedding with pizza, since the delicious oven-baked concoction is not mentioned either by Jesus, or in the Bible.

A selection of tweets and memes — many pizza-related — below:
