god is love

Warning: This post contains offensive language.

America is a Christian Nation, just ask any Conservative Christian. Unless of course, that Conservative Christian opposes something that’s “mainstream”. Then America is nothing but a heathen cesspool. Christians supposedly follow the teachings of a guy named Jesus, who said, “Judge not lest ye be judged.”

But Conservative Christians can’t help themselves from sticking their noses in the affairs of everyone who doesn’t share their beliefs one hundred percent. Life begins at conception, even though the law says differently. Disagree and you’re a baby-killer. Defend the country according to republican ideology, or you’re a terrorist sympathizer, which means you’re in bed with Satan. All health-care reform supporters will burn in hell forever.

Christians demonstrating against health-care reform outside Capitol Hill yesterday called Georgia Congressman John Lewis a nigger. They also called Massachusetts Congressman Barney Frank a faggot. A few days ago they berated a reform supporter who suffers from Parkinson’s. The list of despicable actions by these Christians goes on and on…

As I understand it, there actually is someone who supposedly will judge us all. But according to His Word, God will judge our hearts.

I’d hate to be a Conservative Christian on Judgement Day.

    You make a good point. Many conservative Christians are totally bigoted and hypocritical. Especially those who were demonstrating outside washington.

    But guard against judging the mass for the fringe… Not going to church because of some crazy christians is like not going to a football game because of a few drunk, obnoxious fans. Take it from a follower of Jesus, these people in NO WAY represent the Love of God.

    God Bless,

    You know what? I can’t even say anything at all because I’m shocked…and then somehow not. Religion bothers me on so many levels, but the hypocracy of it all is the worst. And yet, I understand that not all God fearing folk are the same — but honestly, it’s hard sometimes to tell the difference (this coming from someone who goes to church on semi – regular basis! But, it could be for the good gospel music and boys…but shhh, don’t tell anyone!). 😉

    Interesting that there are several videos posted from the Tea Party of John Lewis exiting through the crowd, and in none of them do you hear him called any name. This isn’t definitive, but I wonder why there’s no record other than his word?

    As a Christian (conservative yes, but Christian first), my order is to love. Where I fail in that, I’m not being Christian, and I know that people will judge me by my bad actions as well as my good ones. I have to trust in God, so that I fail less often.

    But that said, do you view the Tea Party as a Christian movement? From being on the ground and blogging it, I haven’t seen that.

      Thanks for your comment, Jim.
      I don’t see the Tea Party as entirely a Conservative Christian movement, but they are a large part of it. I don’t condemn all Conservative Christians, just the worst of the bunch. Same goes for the Tea-Partiers. Still, there’s way too much hate in both groups to merely dismiss.

    As christians, loving tolerance should be our code.
    Anybody preaching anything less needs sunday school (again).

    Your sentiments are 100 percent accurate. But what are we doing about it? 40 and 50 years ago, we were in the streets, facing down the powers that be. Through tenacity and conviction, a generation put an end to hateful Jim Crow laws and helped pass the Civil Rights Act. We helped lift women out of subservience and into positions of respect. Hell, we even helped stop a war.

    Today, the ignorant, hateful, small-minded tea-partyers are the ones in the streets. And they’re making a difference. Meanwhile, those of us who ought to know better are sittling safely behind our computers bitching to people who already agree with us.

    When will we step out into the fray and show the energy and commitment that made such a difference not that long ago?

    So when will you admit you’re entirely wrong with the one accusation in your post that you manage to back up with a link? The entire accusation of racism was a hoax perpetrated by the CBC and a willing media, and you know it. How many video cameras were there? How many videos do we have that show anything to back up the accusations?

      Right.
      And I suppose 9/11 was an inside job…

      Taoist,

      I just read your blog post and I must say, as a Democrat, I ‘m quite impressed. You have some great points and evidence – although one could argue the other side. But you put money where your mouth is, and I have to give you props for that and will wait to hear what happens.
      Given that though, how do you defend Sarah Palin today marking up on her website with targets where congressmen/women voted thier conscience? Actually, I should rephrase the question and not make an assumption — my apologies. Do you defend Sarah Palin’s choice ot put that map up on facebook? http://www.facebook.com/notes/sarah-palin/dont-get-demoralized-get-organized-take-back-the-20/373854973434

      This is what makes it hard for me. When leaders act inappropriately on either side. That kind of language/behavior fuels the flames and doesn’t help the discourse. I have no problem with us disagreeing, but major problems and angst over the hatred and the anger. There’s no need for it.

      I’m a conservative Democrat — but I’m a Democrat for sure. My point is that I believe a lot of us are more alike than we are unlike — and extremes on either side are unacceptable. I applaud your post and await a response that values your commitment for proof. It’s honest and fair – how could argue with that?

      I can read your blog and understand where you’re coming and completely hold my party accountable. Truth is, someone should put forth evidence or shut up — you offered $10K for evidence — that’s pretty hard for me not to notice and not make me question my party.

      But will you also agree that maybe Palin (and other leaders on the right) need to be responsible as well? If I had 10K, I’d offer it just for Palin to take down this ridiculous target map on facebook. We are a much more civilized group of people than that — and she’s smarter than that for sure. I know she knew what she was doing when she put that map up with targets. And if she didn’t, she sure does now.

      I want us to agree — but if we don’t, I want us to have vigorous debates about it and move forward. But what I don’t want is leaders on both sides fueling the tension, igniting the wic and getting us to hate each other and not HEAR each other. We have come too damn far to go back there — and as Americans…we are so much better than this.

      The media may be inciting this, but we can stop it .

      (sorry noh8 to have written so much on your post…I’m just so sad about where the rhetoric is going on all sides).

      • Nadia Chyme March 25, 2010 at 5:08 pm

        Oops, Taoist, I realize that the 10K was actually offered by the link you posted on here blog/article written by by Andrew Breitbart — my apologies! I don’t want everyone thinking you were offering 10K! Ha! But, all the other points, still valid. And I have read your blog today! 😉

    Nadia, thanks. I have to agree with you that Palin putting up links to politicians homes is over the top. There’s a place for debate and lobbying and such, but putting people’s personal information online is rarely an approach I agree with. The gay rights movement of California has been doing something similar with the people who voted against their issue, and I disagree with that for the same reasons.

    I can understand the frustration of lack of access that might lead to some of these, but I think the right way to deal with that is for politicians to have to guarantee a certain amount of open door access time at their office. And currently many of the Democrats in office wouldn’t dare show their face to their constituents.
