Evangelical Christian Bigots

Post by slowyoroll » Fri Dec 09, 2011 12:09 pm

What I completely don't understand is how people like Rick Perry and Michelle Bachman can all themselves Christians when they are so bigoted against Gay people..

How can you stand for taking away another persons human rights?
How and why would you think you are better than another human or deserve more?
How can you on a daily basis hurt a whole group of people? (bigotry hurts)
How can you raise your children to believe all people are not equal?
If you believe in God..do you not believe he loves us all?



These people are pathetic..not very smart..narrow minded and bat **** crazy if they
think they would be elected President in this country..

Didn't you send your son to a Catholic School? What's the teaching in the Catholic Church on that issue?

Both President Obama and his VP Joe Biden were opposed to same-sex marriage in their campaign for the White House. Looks like it was a winning issue for them. :-"

Kicks... The Bible speaks of men laying with men being a sin. Christians who believe in the Scriptures, the commandments of God and the Resurection of Jesus are simply supporting their beliefs. This does not make them bigots but you calling them bigots without respecting their faith makes you one. The Constitution provides for the equality of all men and the law protects those freedoms.

The results of the Prop 8 show us that folks can be religious, and the target of bigotry, and still vote to take away another persons rights.

So what? The bible also has some judgements about promiscuity and pre-marital sex. It's never stopped any of the christians I know from participating in both.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Can we assume your refusal to capitalize Bible and Christians is the latest liberal insult towards believers? Pretty cheap and transparent, wabash.

Liberalism is like an out-of-control 5 year old at McDonalds. All the talking to and admonishment won't make a difference. They have no concept of right or wrong, they are nothing more than narcissists.

Sorry feel that way. But thanks for not disagreeing with me about my observations of evangelicals.

Yeah, but it doesn't say anything about two women sleeping together because as we all know, that's not gay, that's great porn.
Christians who believe in the Scriptures, the commandments of God and the Resurection of Jesus are simply supporting their beliefs.
Which would be fine if they stopped there and held their beliefs...they wish others to follow their beliefs as well, and that's where the problems arise.
This does not make them bigots but you calling them bigots without respecting their faith makes you one.
What makes them bigots is when they try to force others to live according to their beliefs without respecting the faith or lack of faith of others. Do Christians have to "respect" the faith of others or are they ordered by the Bible to "spread the good news" regardless of the religious beliefs of others?

Why don't you just apologize and move on without adding another one of your backhanded insults?

Everyone's entitled to their opinion. However, since I assume you capitalize People magazine and Nancy Pelosi, does that mean you think they are more worthy of respect than the Bible and Christ? I'm just trying to get at motive here.

Apologize for what?

I find the faux victimhood by evangelicals to be amusing given their attitudes towards those who don't share their beliefs.

If it's any consolation I don't capitalize the names of other religions or their followers.

Don't take it personally.

You should have apologized, or at least act like you meant it when you said you're sorry, instead of adding another one of your insults.

One of these times, you should try it. I don't think its ever been seen on this board.

I also find that people with religious backgrounds are some of the most well grounded, sincere, and nicest people in the world. It usually doesn't matter what religion they're practicing.

Perhaps not but I'll bet it matters how they practice it. I agree with you that some of the finest people I know are deeply religious, but on the other hand, they don't go out of their way to tell people about their "personal relationship with Jesus".

Are the people you know who you described as "some of the most well grounded, sincere, and nicest people in the world" the type to tell you about Jesus regularly, or do they keep their faith pretty much to themselves unless asked?

Apologize for what? Your faux righteous indignation?

Try what? You demand respect while giving none. Which isn't a surprise to me.

My experience has been just the opposite. Though I'm glad to know that segment is out there.

I assume this is popping up because of that awful ad Rick Perry tried to make which I found humorous because of the following images.
