A Southern Baptist self proclaimed Christian, Palin supporting, McDonalds employee from Fancy Gap, Virginia ( I am not making any of this up) posted this remarkably annoying comment on a facebook discussion thread:
“... being a Christian is believing in Jesus for what he done [sic] for the world and loving every person no matter what they do.” Brad N., 4/3/12
That comment almost drove me to apoplexy. There comes a time when accepting pat platitudes, and then seeing the purveyor of same expose his/her hypocrisy becomes intolerable.
Xtians don't "judge"? My fat camel ass! They judge abortion providers and women who abort a fetus; they judge gays; they judge this to be a "Xtian nation" and all Founding Fathers to be Xtians in spite of all evidence to the contrary. They serve on juries and judge defendants. They judge whether or not a person on a darkened street, or deserted subway car is a threat to them. Many judge Obama to be a Muslim, a Kenyan, a Communist, a fascist, and/or the anti-Christ.
They judge all non-Xtians as deceived or "closed minded" for not buying into their myth. They judge clergy who molest and the hierarchy who cover it up to have been "led astray by Satan" and a rarity.
They judge global warming endorsing scientists to be fakes and evolutionists to be gullible. They judge it better to turn a blind eye to tens of thousands of third world people dying of AIDS rather than to insist their church endorse condoms.
Xtians are all about judgment, and the more Xtian they are the more their judgment is invariably hideous and grotesquely poor.
The whole “Xtians don’t judge” nonsense derives from their misunderstanding of Matthew 7:1 “Judge not lest ye be judged.” Not surprising since most have never read the Bible, or those who have haven’t taken the time to understand it. It has nothing to do with judging peoples acts/actions, it has everything to do with assessing who is and isn’t worthy of “salvation.” Big difference.
So while Good Xtian Brad opined to grace me with his expertise, it is in fact a defunct explanation offered by someone who doesn’t understand his own professed doctrine.
As for “loving every person no matter what they do” ... Bull Hockey!
Any Xtian who claims to love / have loved Bin Laden, Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, Dr. Joseph Mengele, Mao, Torquemada, Vlad the Impaler, Tim McVeigh, John Wayne Gacy, or anyone one of thousands of despots, murderers, and genocidal fiends though history just because they commit their minds to believing a dead Jew came to life and all the Pauline doctrinal bullshit that accompanies it, is either a liar and mouthing expected doctrine, patently insane, has been lobotomized, is a social deviate, or a damnable moron. The old "I hate the act but love the person" is the most insipid Xtian platitude ever invented right after "its okay little Suzie got decapitated in a car accident; it was part of God's plan."
They may figure they are fooling their God, and thus assuring themselves of a place in heaven, but anyone professing love for a mass murderer is irrational at best, psychotic at worst.
Naturally I explained all this in vivid detail to Brad N. He replied that since he didn’t personally know any of those murderous historical personages he can’t be sure if he “loved them or not.”
The deafening crash he probably heard after he hit the send button on that sentence was brute reality and gross Xtian hypocrisy traveling on the same track in opposite directions at 100 MPH. So much for the non-judgmental, all loving Xtian ethic courtesy of Fancy Gap, VA.
