Just 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.
