You will almost always see the two words "I think..." when someone is claiming to know or follow the teachings of Christ but their worldview and lifestyle run in direct opposition to His. For example: "I am a Christian who loves Jesus but I think today's Supreme Court decision was a good thing."

SULLIVAN: "I think Jesus is weeping for joy. I don’t think Jesus is on the other side of this. Although I don't wanna claim to know anything about that. But I do know that Jesus was always on the side of love,”

Sullivan asserts himself on behalf of the teachings of Jesus Christ and then immediately wipes his hands clean of his assertion. Then he concludes with the patented "Jesus is love" so it's all good! Sullivan should look up the huge gulf between the Greco-Roman, or, the world's definition of love and that of Jesus Christ. Loving your neighbor begins and ends with saving their soul (the Great Commission). Hating your neighbor would be to let them continue in their sin and have them die in it.
