*sighs* The stupidity of the holier-than-thou club.
And Christians wonder why they get such a bad rap.
Do you know....there was this group I used to meet with. We'd hang out at a book store and discuss various new books, religious opinions, have small debates and such...and it was really cool. We learned about each other's positions, opened our minds to view other's way of thinking (even if we disagreed, personally), and otherwise got glimpses into places we'd never have seen otherwise. We'd even get the rare *gasp* Christian who would join us. Most of the people there were Hindu, Wiccan, Hermetic, Tantric, etc (you know "fringe" groups I guess is how the religious right would like to think of them)...
Well, it was not unusual for this group of "Christians" to come, circle around us, pray loudly so that we could not hear ourselves in our discussion, and then spend the rest of the time telling us how we were all going to hell. Only once have I ever been spit upon - and that flat out made me a non-happy person...Irony wouldn't you say?
The people who supposedly follow a man who would break bread with the sinners, who got more angry at those claiming to follow G-d and yet making a profit off of the religious requirements* (boy did he throw a fit over that one) than off of the sinners he broke bread with who knew no better. The man who would chastise his followers telling them "those of you without sin cast the first stone"**....Deep, deep irony.
Not saying all Christians are this way...unfortunately, the ones you see most predominantly are. The true Christians live their life the way the person they follow lived his. They remember the Parable of the Weeds***...they get it. Those Christians...those I have respect for. I just wish they were the majority.
