Reader: Pat Robertson's not being Christian by wishing for Peyton Manning injury

Following Tim Tebow's trade to the New York Jets, televangelist Pat Robertson blasted the Broncos, suggesting that if Peyton Manning, who is coming off multiple neck surgeries, gets hurt, the team will deserve it.

This sentiment drew a sharp rebuke from one reader with what appears to be a different take on Christian compassion than Robertson's.

Huh writes:

It's the Christian Way: Wish a debilitating spinal injury on anyone who slights your fellow Christian.
