Leftist commentary from a mouthy bitch
Ok. Legion600’s post the other night highlighted what I really hate about most evangelical Christians. His post is here: http://www.livejournal.com/users/legion600/138310.html
Basically, upon reading the book “How the Irish Saved Civilization” they were to discuss it. Someone mentions the fact that Christianity was the motivating factor or catalyst (the monasteries) and one of the girls in the group says that they weren’t Christians, they were Catholics.
That’s right, for all of you Catholics who think you believe in Christ, according an awful lot of evangelicals, you don’t.
And yes, I realize this stupid shit has been going around since the Mother-loving Reformation, and it was just as stupid then as it is now. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.
In every dictionary I’ve ever seen, the definition of Christian is someone who believes in the divinity of Christ, his existence and his teachings. Ok, unless I am SADLY mistaken, the Catholic faith kind of centers on this whole Christ-thing, yes?
And lets face it, most evangelical Christian groups don’t even believe that EACH OTHER are truly Christian. I’m serious. Ask a Baptist about a Nazarene. Or a Lutheran about a Mormon. Ok, maybe Mormon’s a bad example, but you get the drift.
An awful lot of people didn’t think JFK could be elected President because he was Catholic. In some areas of the country, John Kerry’s Catholicism counted against him as well.
And the thing that really grates my cheese about these people is the EGO involved in announcing that you have the ONE TRUE WAY. Apparently their Bibles are missing the humility part. Not to mention the fundamental insecurity of HAVING to convince other people that your way is the right way. Really, the way these folks are so rabid about converting others, you’d think their belief was really based on how many people they can convince they’re right. And every person they can’t convince eats just a little bit more of their soul.
Edited to fix the spelling of the world “Civilization” because I should really quit posting at one in the morning when my contacts have turned into potato chips.
