I have (we all have) read a lot of Christian bashing in our lives…but THIS ONE TAKES THE CAKE. I actually almost enjoyed reading it because it’s so uninformed and presumptive and so clearly agenda-driven that it’s kind of good for a laugh…only really funny if I thought everybody saw through it.
Please, whoever here at Geeez professes to be a Christian; take a look at the link and let me know what you think. Did YOU know that Christians killed Jews in Germany “In Jesus’ name”? Did you? Or did you and I miss that part in history? 🙂
Obviously, we know that people who were ‘Christian’ (i.e. more from the mere fact that they were not muslims, not Jews, not Buddhists, etc.) DID kill Jews, and some liberals on our blogs, over the years on this topic, even say “Hitler was a Christian,” (always have, always will; they just don’t learn well), but to say someone was born Christian therefore he IS A BELIEVING CHRISTIAN is one of the biggest, obvious mistakes anybody can make. And the truth is so documented, so beautifully stated. Why not bother to read it?
They mention the Crusades and all other supposed CHRISTIAN ATROCITIES in links on the article, so I hope you take a look. Huffington Post, nearly every day, has a big headline on most Home News Pages, that’s anti religion, mostly anti Christian. It’s like a new ‘cottage industry’ for the otherwise political rag.
Here’s one quote from the article that’ll make you howl and, literally, obliterates the most remote credibility the author had:
Here is what they suggest Jesus would say: “For example: “Why are they picturing me holding a cross? (Z: take a look at HuffPost’s link here..another pretty good laugh) We loathed the cross. It reminded us of the tens of thousands of my fellow Jews who were slaughtered by the Romans. The only cross I ever held was the one the Romans brutally nailed me to.” Do you think Jesus would say that?
Is he kidding? CAN the writer be that obtuse, that clueless about the faith? WHY WITH A CROSS? MY GOSH! !!!!!!!!!!
Here’s a TASTE OF SOME TYPICAL ARTICLES ON JUDAISM by HuffPost that was on my home page yesterday. Oh, yes! Jews need to leave Orthodoxy and become actors and THEN they will find total fulfillment! You can’t make this stuff up.
Clearly, there are bits of truth in all these links….this is what saves the Secular Left; They can ask we who scoff at these articles “Are you saying ALL HASIDICS are HAPPY JEWS?” Of course, I don’t know…how would I KNOW? But to suggest ALL are UNHAPPY? Or they can ask “Are you suggesting nothing bad’s been done in the name of Christianity?” I can’t say that’s not true..but in the name of JESUS? Notsomuch. There’s a difference. Yes, there is.
Please chime in….this stuff (by the way, there are articles almost every single day like this at Huff Post, this isn’t unusual…mostly aimed at the horrible Christian experience) is amazing. And so clearly agenda-driven. They’re doing all they can to ‘wake people up and leave the faith.’
One can only say “Be very careful what you wish for……..”
Don’t you think? Get my drift?
