Response by Don Cherry to a letter ['Letters, Multifaceted man', Jan. 2014, p. 4] in response to the story about him by Diana Swift ['The irreverent, reverent Don Cherry', Dec. 2013, p. 1]. "My answer to this person is that Jesus was not a wimp, meek and mild; sometimes he straightened out people with physical force -- I remind you when the money changers turned his father's house into a market, he straightened this out with a knotted rope. No, Christians are not meek; they died for this religion back then and they are dying for this religion now. We should have more songs like 'Onward Christian Soldiers', marching on to war like a royal army, not phasing out songs like this because they don't want to offend anybody. Yes, the church is changing and having a hard time right now. Now is not the time to turn meek and mild. Now is the time to stand up and battle".
