Pretty much …
Oh I’ve met some people who are Cristians and yet they are the complete opposite. For example, the priest at the church I go to. He basically said, “If we want people to come to church, we should known for our peaceful sermons and rocking music, not as people who use religion as a way to force a choice.”
Also, he’s A-okay with homosexuals and Atheists and has said nothing about abortions.
I know people like that too, but it doesn’t automatically erase the assholes.
In that case, that pastor, and those in the congregation who agree with him, ought to band together to push back. I’m glad for these people, but they can be SO MUCH MORE than just another part of the whole “we’re not all like that” shit.
Re-blogging again for zenodotus5’s commentary.
It’s spot on. Saying “we’re not all like that” doesn’t do anything to change the ones that are, and the one’s that are “like that” are always pushing their nasty agenda into state and national politics.
Until this kind of vitriol and pushing beliefs on other people is considered unacceptable among believers and not simply dismissed with “we aren’t all like that” it’s going to keep getting called out.
Exactly. It’s not enough just to say “we aren’t all like that”.
Now, what can we do about the douche-bag atheists. :/
We need to call ‘em out on their shit, kind of like what happened with “The Amazing (shit head) Atheist”.
No one and no thing should be above criticism.
