Fundy Christian hypocrisy

And people wonder why I gave up ALL religious fairy tale lunacy?


We've all heard the whining. From Louis Giglio to contraception, no issue is too small to gin up the whine that white evangelicals are persecuted at the hands of "culture" or alternatively, gay people. Yes, to listen to white evangelicals mule about things is to hear about how gays and lesbians are driving this country into a degenerate downward spiral while the black guy in the White House facilitates.

All of which makes this Barna Group study fascinating:

The findings of a poll published Wednesday (Jan. 23), reveal a “double standard” among a significant portion of evangelicals on the question of religious liberty, said David Kinnaman, president of Barna Group, a California think tank that studies American religion and culture.

While these Christians are particularly concerned that religious freedoms are being eroded in this country, “they also want Judeo-Christians to dominate the culture,” said Kinnamon.

“They cannot have it both ways,” he said. “This does not mean putting Judeo-Christian values aside, but it will require a renegotiation of those values in the public square as America increasingly becomes a multi-faith nation.”

1. I think it's pretty funny because it shows how they are guilt of the very thing they are concerned

about, oppression of religious freedom.

This reveals that they are fascists not disciples of the Lord of Love.

2. Interesting post.

I suggest cross-posting into the Religion forum where we can throw chairs about it.


Thank you. Made my day. A good OP.

3. I had a history prof who said

that the Pilgrims didn't come to America for religious liberty for EVERYONE; they came for religious liberty for THEM.

Nothing changes.

4. Your prof was 100% correct.

The first thing the Pilgrims did was set up an absolute theocracy.
