Having It Both Ways by Miz Pink

pink-popcicle-2Just a little rant today.

So I was doing some online discussion at a board and having around in an off topic/anything goes part of the place and responding in a religion thread. I mentioned I had some liberal view. Okay a lot of them. And that I was Christian too.

So I get a response that with beliefs like that I’m obviously a Christian who doesn’t follow Jesus. And some comment about when he said he would spit out those who were lukewarm, he wasn’t talking about fellatio.

Now I don’t think it was crazy to think I was dealing with someone who was Christian and took exception to my political views so I noted how liberal and progressive many of Jesus’s views and actions were at least on a social level.

Then I get the surprise response that I’m just one of those judgmental sheep who believe in oral stories passed down from sheep herders.

This comment was from the same dang person!!!!

After a while I realize I’m dealing with an atheist who wants to have it both ways by saying I’m not Christian enough to be taken seriously and too Christian to be looked at as anything but a mindless plodding obedient drone.

So do I have a mind that I am using to pick and choose my beliefs and be reasonable or am I an idiot who simply does what the Bible tells me to do mindlessly. Apparently according to this guy I’m somehow both.

He also informed me that according to the bible I’m going to hell because I don’t follow everything perfectly even though he doesn’t believe there is a hell.

It’s all just too wonderfuly surreal and amusing for me to even get mad.

    i’d advise you to ask him if he keeps kosher and mixes wool and linen, stones people to death for disobeying their parents, thinks adulterers should be crushed, etc and if he follows ALL the laws listed in leviticus. cause if he doesn’t, he’s picking and chosing too.

    Well, of COURSE you’re going to Hell, Pink…for posting that racy photo of a naked woman with your post (hey, we know she’s got something bared, even if we can’t see it) that suggests oral pleasuring.

    And a hypocritical atheist with a chip on his shoulder could confirm that for you. Just go back to the board and ask him.

    @ robyn:

    LOL. I think I’d like to pass on stoning people who mix wools and linen, but could we possibly institute some kind of violent death penalty for anyone who tries to bring back 70s-style leisure suits and/or most of the “fashions” from the mid-80s…

    Funny thing, I get this same feeling when trying to get a “Christian” to show me what constitutes being a christian and what doesnt.

    I guess I need the holy spirit to help me out, burp. 😉

    I don’t mind answering.

    A Christian is someone who accepts Jesus as the son of God and as his/her messiah, lord, savior, redeemer and brother in the family of God.

    No, if you want to go back to quibbling about specific interpretations of the Bible among Christians, I’m not interested, since I’ve already made it clear that ANY group with any rules, doctrines, policies, traditions, etc. will have internal differences in interpretation.

    But what I gave above is simple and direct.

    I was going to do that, but I’m trying to turn over a new leaf.

    I have ran into some of that with atheists – they play both sides of the argument – possibly to relate to your side and show the inconsistencies but also to speak what they really do believe…and sometimes that just comes off as ‘dirty’. Maybe it is – I wasnt in that post.

    What constitutes a Christian huh…well the belief would have to be Jesus was the ‘Christ’ (messiah) and then living by those taught ideals he preached upon. No one is asking for perfection in that – just that we admit when we are wrong and be humble…and live in a good way – a righteous/just way before others. Beyond that I am not sure what else is asked of Christians?

    I make room for atheists in that definition mind you – if they have valid reasons to not believe in God – and I have heard some pretty good reasons not to follow this Christian God (as He is used in many circles).

    Can’t say I ever had the pleasure of owning one. As I recall, the whole disco-themed thing was beginning it’s death throes around 1978…and I was 10 years old then. I had a few bell-bottomed jeans or cords, I think, and probably a couple velour short sleeve polo-style shirts. But I was spared the leisure suits.
