This unfortunately, for Christianity....Is what many see in those who claim to be Christian, but support what Christ taught them not to do......

It is not only non-Christians that see this, but many Christians that see this when anyone claims to be Christian then support so many things and characteristics that were never supported by Christ...... For those that truly believe in Christ/God......How could they think God is not watching? How will he judge in the comparison to those that keep their faith between themselves and God and live so much more in alignment with the weight and general theme of Christ's teachings? God only, knows.

As a typical non-believer you miss the points Jesus was making.

And what is up with your God hate recently? Is He touching your life in some way and is it making you afraid?

Would you like me to pray for you because I will.

Sad to say that's where the party I and many of my family and friends used to belong to, appears to have sunk to, but glad to say so many left that party because of what this depicts about where that party has sunk to, among other things.

What's not fake news are the calls and conversations with friends and family, some that were (passed away now) Marines in WWII and staunch Republicans under Ike, asking what the hell happened to the Republican party. It was good to see they were not willing to sell their souls (at least in this way) to pretend the party was the same one that is often referred to as the "Party of Lincoln"....... While never perfect and with its flaws, it was once a lot grander party than it is now, if in no other ways than standing up for the rights of others, the environment and a level of fiscal responsibility people of all parties shared.

Throughout history, the teachings of Jesus have been distorted, manipulated, misinterpreted and reinterpreted by many in order to suit their own agenda. Today is no different and the hypocrisy is put on display for all to see.

Today there is the internet, mega-churches and at least one large university that mixes politics with religion, the bane of humanity, since the human inception of organized religion and those who recognized how they could harness it's power to their personal profit.

Thomas Jefferson could see the same, long ago.....

Here, an excerpt of a letter by Thomas Jefferson to Joseph Priestly from 1803, makes that clear......


"I should proceed to a view of the life, character, & doctrines of Jesus, who sensible of the incorrectness of their ideas of the deity, and of morality, endeavored to bring them to the principles of a pure deism, and juster notions of the attributes of god, to reform their moral doctrines1 to the standard of reason, justice, & philanthropy, and to inculcate the belief of a future state. this view would purposely omit the question of his divinity & even of his inspiration. to do him justice it would be necessary to remark the disadvantages his doctrines have to encounter, not having been committed to writing by himself, but by the most unlettered of men, by memory, long after they had heard them from him; when much was forgotten, much misunderstood, & presented in very paradoxical shapes. yet such are the fragments remaining as to shew a master workman, and that his system of morality was the most benevolent & sublime probably that has been ever taught; and eminently more perfect than those of any of the antient philosophers. his character & doctrines have recieved still greater injury from those who pretend to be his special disciples, and who have disfigured and sophisticated his actions & precepts, from views of personal interest, so as to induce the unthinking part of mankind to throw off the whole system in disgust, and to pass sentence as an imposter on the most innocent, the most benevolent the most eloquent and sublime character that ever has been exhibited to man."

The reason they don't is because Christianity has one rule to belong- to believe the unbelieveable that Jesus is from a virgin and dad is god.
They are free to do as they please after that.
Pretty shitty religion I agree.
The stupid rant and rave over religion the world over.
In the Abrahamic religions, Judaism first, Christianity second, Muslim last.
The first hate the second and third. The second worships the first and hates the third, the third hate both. Mind you, the third is the most uneducated. The second requires members to be stupid, the first has the happiest members, and most educated.
