There’s one thing that I cannot stand…a religious hypocrite.
This is a person who preaches God’s word and the thumps the bible and is all “have a blessed day” and all that…but they don’t practice what they preach and half the crap that comes out of there mouth is hatred and vile.
Those kind of people…I just cannot stand them.
Don’t get me wrong. I was raised Catholic. I believe in God and all that. While I’m not really a practicing Catholic, I still consider myself to be Catholic. I pray, I believe, I try to be a good person. But I’m not out there trying to convert people or Jesus them up.
It boggles my mind that there are people who claim to be Christians and are all, “God bless this, and Father God that” are also people who are the most racist, judgmental, and hateful people on this planet!
Doesn’t the bible teach that God loves everyone? Aren’t we made in HIS image?
Or am I reading the wrong bible?
Isn’t there a song that goes…
“Jesus loves the little children, all the little children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in his sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.”
Maybe they didn’t learn that as children. Maybe “their” religion teaches that God only loves the “children” who look like them…are the same color as them…same size as them.
Doesn’t this seem ridiculous and just plain ignorant?
I read something recently online that was written by a woman who claims she is a Christian. She’s one of “those” types too. She wrote how she thinks that animal “A” is only good for being in dog food. She wrote this on a “Christian” forum and TO someone who has lived with, trained and LOVES animal “A” she was speaking about. Seems as though animal “A” killed animal “B”, which she had as a pet and so she now hates animal “A” and thinks they’re only good for being in dog food.
Yeah…there’s a model Christian for you. Let’s hate the entire animal “A” species because it killed animal “B”. Guess there’s no room for forgiveness. Guess we should hate. That’s real Christian like. (insert eyeroll here).
