I talked to my friend Amy about what’s been really on my heart lately. See, I’ve gotten fed up with American and British Christians as of late. To be honest, I’ve gotten disgusted with them period. I don’t know how it happened, well actually I do know how it happened. Churches are allowed to grow and grow without accountability. Christian families raise children in a bubble, without letting them know the truth of the world. In fact, most Christians believe that this country is a Christian nation. I live in a state with more churches and “christians” than non believers, yet they honestly think that they are under attack by the secular world.
Pardon me, but let me burst your bubble, there is no such thing going on. In fact, the opposite is going on, with christians attacking and persecuting people different from them. It is something as simple as building an atmosphere where Gays, atheists, and jews are not welcome to attacking a black person to a truck and dragging them across a street for no reason at all. You make think these problems are small in occurence, but they are not. They are an ugly underbelly to the christian church, which has become more and more putrid as time goes on. For those who already may know, let me use a different example: Kenneth Copland is raising a stink about the IRS questioning because he (literally) has more money than God. When we hit this, there is something seriously wrong. When people in the christian church are more willing to shove a stupid tract in someone’s face instead of being, oh…i don’t know..Christ’s hands and feet….it leads me to say this:
We are fucked, doomed, whatever you want to call it. Until we realize this..we are finished.
In other words: there are more things in and around christianity that need to be looked at., questioned, and debated. If not, the christian faith will die in america and you know what? I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if it were surpassed by any other religion. Folks, take this as a wake up call: Either change the ethics and faith model of Christianity or Die.
To those fundamentalist christians who think that all we need to do is legislate christian morality, let me tell you something: The gays,atheists, and Wiccans are NOT pushing you into a closet. By your OWN sins and indiscretions you are pushing yourself into a darkened closet with a lock. Legislating christian morality is like forcing a grown man to wear a diaper. You are retarding the growth of other folks just because YOU don’t know how to stop looking at porn,visiting titty bars, and wearing skirts too short? Ridiculous. And you wonder why folks think you are rabid and foaming at the mouth.
