Jesus loves porn stars

Julie posted a comment on one of my previous posts about mercy, and in it she mentions a company that makes t-shirts with one of the printed sayings being “Jesus loves porn stars.”
“Mercy,” “Grace,” “Love,” “Forgiveness,” and all such notions are profoundly beyond our ability to comprehend. Truly, Jesus does love porn stars – and the vilest sorts we can imagine. Jesus loves the Hitlers, the Pol Pots, the Jeffrey Domers (sp?) of the world; He loves the multinationlists, the corporate raiders, the CEOs; He loves the child molesters, the rapists, the murderers; He loves the liars, the cheats, and the selfish – and Julie and I. In our self-righteousness, we can hardly conceive of it, even though with our words we profess it and condescend to it.
We grapple to accept it. We try. We fail. Yet, it is always present with us.
