As most of you know I typically do not post anything on Saturday’s or Sunday’s. I try to answer the handful of comments people leave but for the most part traffic is slow on my blog over the weekends. This Sunday was different because of one rather righteous “Christian” who decided she wanted to have a battle of the wits with me. She was responding to my post from a month ago Is Donald Trump the new face of American Christianity?
This was here first comment; “Christian “Persecution” of LGBT, refugees, immigrants, poor, and people of color? Are you suggesting that as Christians we are to remain silent on the seriousness of the sins committed against God by homosexuals, knowing full-well about God the Father’s fury, and hellfire destruction, of Sodom for those very same sins? If we followed that path, we would no longer be Christians, we’d just be JERKS! We are remanded by God to warn these people that they are on a selfish journey which will lead them to eternal damnation unless they repent and reform their displeasing behavior.
As far as Christians “persecuting” the remainder of your list of victims, those people are the very people to whom millions of Christians have dedicated their very lives and wealth to helping. And NO OTHER faith on earth has ever surpassed the Christian’s level of charity. For pete sakes, Christians invented the concept of hospitals and schools for that very purpose!”
At first I was just going to ignore her. I was having a very pleasant Sunday watching the British Open and the Tour de France but then I read her comment again “as Christians we are to remain silent on the seriousness of the sins committed against God by homosexuals” followed by “And NO OTHER faith on earth has ever surpassed the Christian’s level of charity.” Despite my efforts to ignore her I couldn’t let her get away with these bullshit thoughts without a challenge.
As many of you can well imagine, knowing my views, this little tit for tat escalated quickly. What I got over the course of several hours was a very irrational discourse about how important Christians are to the survival of the world. I made an assumption early on that she was one of Trump’s 35% supporters which was confirmed when I found her Twitter account.
I don’t get much push back from readers anymore and I miss that. I like debating topics provided the conversation remains sane and rational. But unfortunately it seems there is nothing sane or rational about the white, conservative, and Christian Trump brigade. Like Franklin Graham, they see Trump’s ascension to the throne as a mandate from God. Never mind his character flaws, he was ordained to reestablish order. To legitimize the white-Christian agenda.
From this irrational lady I learned;
1. Christians invented the concept of hospitals and schools.
2. 95% of homosexuals were abused as children.
3. Dr. Seuss books are spawned from the mind of an author on a LSD trip.
4. Christians invented missions.
5. That I was educated in a public school system run by feminist socialists who push their anti-white Christian male agenda.
6. That I am a flaming bigot and racist who is obviously irrationally prejudiced and HATE white Christians.
I concluded my “conversation” with this lady with the following observation; “When you stand before God and condemn homosexuals, I hope you have a good answer for your love and support of a pussy grabbing, racist, money loving, adulterer. Yea, God said those were sins too you hypocrite.”
Yup, just a nice, quiet Sunday afternoon battling someone using just 35% of their mental capacity. I guess it is up to the rest of us to get this country over the 35% hump.
