Subject: you bait
Attributing the quotation dripping with stupidity
to "every Christian in America" is beneath you, Bart.
You're too smart for that. And because
we all know that you know better (or, with your IQ,
should know better), are we to interpret your
group smear as bigotry? That hardly seems your style either.
I'm a Christian -- son of a preacher -- and I
love bartcop.com. I'm in strong agreement with 99.9% of what
you write here. But this ugly mischaracterization
of a huge group of people and their belief system mystifies me.
I reminds me of the way the wingnuts want to
paint all Muslims as insane, blood-lust driven terrorists inspired
by their religion. I wouldn't expect that
Are there crazy, stupid and mean people who call
themselves Christians? Yep.
But the only group I know that doesn't have people
like that in it is called "the dead."
My two cents. Keep up the great work!
First, when I read it, it seemed funny so I went
Second, when you say it out loud, it sounds really
If *I* started a club where you had to "eat my
body and drink my blood"
to be a member, you'd think I was the
weirdest person in the country.
Not only that, but if I claimed that everyone owed me a debt, and that
you owed me this debt
because you were born and you had to worship me or I'd condemn you
to a fiery death,
you'd accuse me of extortion and you'd be right to do it..
Going further, to be in my club, you had to swear my mother was a virgin
and I had a secret place
in the clouds where we'would all meet up after we died, etc, you'd
want to strangle my crooked ass.
When you say it out loud, it's so stupid you have to laugh.
But you're taught this insane stuff before your brain forms so it's
hard for some people to shake it.
The swear-to-God truth is the ONLY reason people believe in that illogical
nonsense is because
your parents said it was true, and they are the people who warned you
not to touch the stove
because it was hot. Since the heat thing turned out to be true, your
2-3 year old brain assumes
the idiotic poppycock they told us is also true and it gets ingrained
into your brain for life.
If they waited until you were old enough to drive a car to try to sell
you this wild story, you'd laugh
at the stupidity of it and they know this so they get their
hooks into you before you can think properly.
I heard someone say there are 85,000 religions. Maybe you'd say 84,999
of them aren't the
"real" religion, but I say it's all a bunch of hooey designed
to seperate you from your money..
Religion is everybody's excuse.
Sunni has to kill Shia because their religion said so.
Shiai has to kill Sunni because their religion said so.
(They give up their lives willingly for the 72 virgins - how insane
Is that any crazier than eternal life in Heaven?)
Jerry Falwell hated gays because his religion said so.
Jews would rather watch their kids die than leave their precious, Sacred
Sand - pure insanity.
If you take away religion, you take away their excuse to hate and kill
If one is superstitious, they can always get a rabbit's foot.
The rabbit's foot won't insist that you kill people who don't have
a rabbit's foot.
