Yesterday I wrote an article titled Five Key Christian Values and How Republicans Don’t Represent Any of Them.
The whole premise of the article was that, as a Christian, I listed
five key beliefs I feel real Christianity should represent (based on the
teachings of Jesus Christ) and how conservatives don’t represent them
I knew that writing this would undoubtedly bring out conservatives
who would call me an idiot and defend the hypocrisy within their party.
As these people often claim to represent “Christian values” yet,
judging by their policies, seem to completely contradict nearly
everything about Christianity.
Then, while browsing through a few of the comments, I ran across
maybe the best example of right-wing ignorance about Christianity I had
ever seen. It was a comment that just blew me away with the level of
hatred, ignorance, pettiness and absolute stupidity it displayed.
First, here’s the comment:
“Jesus was NOT a “Christian”. He was a Jew and followed
Jewish Law, among Jews in a Roman occupied Jewish country. Your lumping
all Republicans together and fake strawman arguments show why the
Jackass is the “Progressive” party’s symbol. Taking by force from one
person to give to another is theft – stealing plain and simple. Jewish
law executes homosexuals and baby murderers. That’s why he never
mentioned it; it was already established and he AGREED with it. Not
judging? According to Christianity EVERYONE will be judged by Jesus and
God. In 10-20 years you won’t have a penny to give to your poor or
welfare BUMS. You will be BROKE with NO government assistance or
services available for anyone. Europe’s fate will be yours.
Republicans are talking about big FEDERAL (central planning)
government; NOT limited local government.”
Just lovely, isn’t it?
Let me just go ahead and break this stupidity down. “Jesus was NOT a Christian.”
There are two ways to look at that. First, I guess technically some
could say he wasn’t a “Christian” as the whole premise behind
Christianity is the belief that Jesus Christ was the one true son of
God. So, can you really be a member of a religion based on the belief
in—you? But then, I guess he could really be considered the first
Christian as “Christianity” is supposed to be based on his life and
Either way you want to look at it, this person’s statement is absolutely ridiculous. “Taking by force from one person to give to another is theft – stealing plain and simple.”
Well, considering I’m sure the person who wrote this comment drives
on public roads (paid for by money taken from taxpayers by force) and
odds are they went to public school (again paid for by tax dollars taken
by force), this person proudly displays not only ignorance, but
complete hypocrisy. With that mindset, we would have no tax revenue and
we’d live in a third world country based on this person’s definition of
stealing. Also, this person lives in the United States. You know, a
country built by slavery and genocide. So, to their point, we
should turn the country back over to Native Americans, burn our
Constitution and live with a “survival of the fittest” mentality where
there are no laws, rules or structure. Because laws, rules and
structure (as enforced and built by government) are accomplished in part
by using tax dollars—which again, are taken by force.
Oh, and let’s not forget all the parts of the Bible that warn against
greed. And we can’t forget a little something along the lines of to
those that much is given, much is expected. To be frank, this person
just seems to be another imbecile who likes to pick and choose what they
do and don’t want to believe in the Bible. “Jewish law executes homosexuals and baby murderers. That’s
why he never mentioned it; it was already established and he AGREED with
This one just might be my favorite. A man who defended the stoning
death of a woman found guilty of adultery, would have supported the
murder of homosexuals and women who wish to have control over their own
bodies? So, let me get this straight. Jesus wasn’t here to change
anything in the Bible, nor challenge “laws.” However, he came to the
defense of a woman sentenced to death for violating one of the Ten
Commandments and one of the Seven Deadly Sins (lust)—both things found
Wasn’t her death sentence in response to the violation of these laws
which this person claims Jesus supported? Why would he have then
intervened in her death, telling people not to judge her unless they
were free of sin themselves, if he agreed with all of these laws?
But I do like how this person blindly assumes they would know what
Jesus did or didn’t support—even though there’s not a single account in
the Bible of him referencing abortion or homosexuality. Simply saying,
“He supported these laws that’s why he didn’t mention them” is about as
moronic as you could possibly get. It’s basically saying, “I have no
proof that proves he was against homosexuality and abortion, but my
church has told me he was, so he was.” “Not judging? According to Christianity EVERYONE will be
judged by Jesus and God. In 10-20 years you won’t have a penny to give
to your poor or welfare BUMS. You will be BROKE with NO government
assistance or services available for anyone.”
Ah yes, and the best “Christian” part of this whole comment. First,
yes, Christianity says we will be judged. But by who? Well, they said
it—God and Jesus. Not another human being.
So here’s a good way to live your life: You do your thing, don’t judge
others for doing theirs, and let’s let God and Jesus “judge” when it’s
all over. Sounds pretty simple, doesn’t it? In fact, with this
comment, this idiot not only proves my point about how judgmental
conservatives are, they also clearly state that it isn’t a human’s right
to judge another human—that’s up to God and Jesus Christ.
Then we move onto the “welfare BUMS” with bums in all caps. I mean,
just lovely. Can you get more judgmental? Can you get more spiteful,
petty and hateful? These characteristics are some of the ones I listed
in the article that conservatives don’t follow—and this idiot proves my
They also prove the fear mongering and paranoia I talked about in the
article as well. Fearful and afraid of the future. Always claiming
we’re headed for “doom.” Everything you know and love will be destroyed!
The entirety of the whole comment just drips with irony and ignorance
if you go back and read the article I linked. In it, I talked about
conservative hate, ignorance, fear, judgement and lack of acceptance—and
this fool showcased nearly every bit of that small-minded right-wing
The worst part is, this person really believes they’re a Christian.
But like I’ve said countless times before, people like this parasite aren’t Christians.
Conservatives follow some cult-like mixture of parts of the Bible
blended with political ideologies. They’ve really created some hybrid of a political party and religion that I call “Republicanity.”
Republicanity — not true Christianity — is exactly what people like the individual who left this deplorable comment follow.
