    How The Christian Right Turned the Good News into Fake News

    This manipulation of information is how self-righteous sociopaths sleep at night.
    It’s how they make peace with the disfigured Savior and distorted religion they’ve created.
    It’s the only way they can explain their contempt for the very people Jesus spent his days advocating for—how they can justify rewriting the Gospels and fashioning a God in their own bitter, greedy, homophobic image.
    It’s how they turn the Good News into fake news, making something beautiful into a weapon, how they crafted exclusion out of invitation.

    This inverted religion allows them to simultaneously craft legislation leaving millions without healthcare, to forever cast the LGBTQ as encroaching demons needing to be eradicated—and to claim to be emulating Jesus through it all. Never mind that the preponderance of the Biblical evidence flies fully in their faces. If we are to use the actual words of Jesus recorded in the Gospels—then these Christians are the threat he spent his days warning people about.
    It's an older article, but it checks out. Your Jesus seems like a pretty cool dude, but his "followers" are nothing like him. How does that even happen?

    No doubt both the author and myself will be charged with "hating" Christianity. Now let the gaslighting begin.

    Problem is it is all assumptions and opinions on both the article and you. The article is the fake news. Where are his facts and references to back up his opinions?

    There's this book called The Bible, perhaps you've heard of it? And how do you reference a "lack" of something? This doesn't occur on pages 1-1200?

    I understand your situation but fail to see the problem. I see our hated status as a badge of honor and good morality.

    Both Christianity and Islam, slave holding ideologies, have basically developed into intolerant, homophobic and misogynous religions. Both religions have grown themselves by the sword instead of good deeds and continue with their immoral ways in spite of secular law showing them the moral ways.

    Jesus said we would know his people by their works and deeds. That means Jesus would not recognize Christians and Muslims as his people, and neither do I. Jesus would call Christianity and Islam abominations.

    Gnostic Christians did in the past, and I am proudly continuing that tradition and honest irrefutable evaluation based on morality.

    Humanity centered religions, good. Yes.

    Supernaturally based religions, evil? Yes.

    Do you agree?
