Ya Probly Don't Wanna Pick On Me

Kate's on a bit of a tear into some fundy, over at Imago Dei, my new friend Amanda's blog. Look out.

For a bit of background, Amanda is a "Love thy Neighbor" breed of Christian. I happen to be very fond of many of these folks.

She's got a fundy "God hates fags and you're enabling them" breed of Christian troll.

He picked on the wrong girl.


P.S. Kate has this to say on her own blog....

Always interesting to see where the people go after confronted with pointed criticism and logical argument. Weapon seems to have been very active until Kate's relating of the parable.

Of course, Weapon may have something better to do for the weekend and may get back at the hate-mongering on Monday.

Somehow, I don't think so, however.

Well, just for good measure, blipey, posted a smack-down of my own.

He really picked on the wrong little girls.

A very interesting discussion, hating for the sake of hating, I've known those types all my life. Even with a guide book like the bible people only see what they want to see.
Good smackdoon.

Thank you Old Knudsen. It's funny how some people have selective vision loss when reading their bible, and how some people talk all about the bible, but never actually read it for themselves.
Rather, they just repeat what Pastor Billy-Joe-Jim-Bob said last Sunday.

Then they go out into the world to do nothing better than spread hate, and violate the first two principles of Christianity as specifically laid down by Jesus himself.

Although I think Amanda will take this in the spirit in which it was intended, you just KNOW I'm gonna get blasted for my most recent comment on her blog...

" I don't think anyone here is suggesting that she should [marry a non-Christian], Terri.

The discussion at hand is how far along his Christian path should she require him to be before she would consider him a potential mate. She's interested in finding out if she is requiring too much "spiritual maturity", not whether or not she should date one of us dirty heathens.


(On the other hand, if you should ever decide to peek over the fence and try playing for the other team, you know where to find us. ;) )

A little slow on the draw here, sorry. This back-and-forth was almost painful to read. I know so many Christians who think they are meant to exact God's judgment and not administer His love. I've never understood that arrogant and self-important approach. As a Christian, it makes me very sad--if I want to hide my light, it's not because I'm ashamed of Jesus but because sometimes I'm ashamed of my fellow believers.

I guess I would have to admit there are times when my fellow believers would be ashamed of me for one reason of another, but that's what makes us all fallible, isn't it? We're all imperfect.

Indeed, Robyn.

It's very painful to me to see people like WOMIgnorance spewing their hate in the name of Jesus.

It's a shame that the very public face of Christianity is made up of folks like WOMIgnorance, who don't even follow the teachings of the Christ.

It is a small but very visible and vocal minority that gives Christians such a bad name.
