11. Yup, cause you know that's what Jesus would do: harbor guns and screw the poor. I wonder if

these people understand that according to the very bible they thump, just saying they love Jesus and worshiping every Sunday (or all week, for that matter), all while failing to practice what Jesus actually preached, ain't gonna get 'em a front row seat in heaven.

There are some poor people who don't want to be screwed, so you need the gun to convince them.

45. Matthew 13:12 He did preach wealth inequality.


For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance, but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

Jesus sounds like a Republican to me.

27. Christian churches donate millions to the poor.

 

Finance shelters for battered women, abandoned or orphaned children.

If you want information on Christians you don't ask those politically opposed to them.

The info you get back will be not only uninformed but usually outright lies.

33. Churches take millions out of the cities they are in

They don't pay taxes and often help on a very conditional basis. Yes, there are some churches that don't operate this way, and they always get trotted out when the x-ians get butthurt when they get criticized, but it's true. Also, the Catholic church harbors and protects many, many pedophiles and says it's god's will that these children are molested, or something.

Jesus said some wonderful things, I wish more of his followers listened to them.

Plus this is a reflection of what "christian Facebookers" are saying, and from my friend's list, I can assure you this is accurate.

38. "Christian" is almost a meaningless term nowadays.

The OP was talking about "conservative" Christians, or Right-Wing Nut Jobs, not mainstream Christians. When someone tells me they are a Christian, I need more info. Christian is just an umbrella term for a multitude of Jesus-based religions.

40. I like how you used the plural.

Christianity has splintered so much that it really is not a unified religion anymore. I once heard someone describe Hinduism not as a single religion, but rather a family of religions with some common beliefs. I think the same applies to Christianity.

44. What passes for christains today aren't the christain I grew up with. The Jesus I was

 

taught to help the poor. The priests marched with MLK to help poor get afforable housing, jobs and assistance for those in need. The nuns are the only ones that seem to be doing the right things for the poor and middle class. Organized church are losing more people all the time. I think people are more spiritual today.

48. This is very true...

Every major (and minor, for that matter) world religion has fractured and splintered many ways over time. Since religion is a human creation and involves dogmatic beliefs, it's just a matter of time before this happens over and over again. It's just human nature, both for the "leader" who's ego and ambition creates the faction in an effort to gain power over people, and the "follower" who needs something to grasp onto and who's ego creates the belief that what they believe is superior to others. For both, it feeds the insatiable ego.

24. Guess I'm lucky.

I'm not a Christian, myself, but some of my Facebook friends are. Fortunately, they are of the Liberal Christian type. Y'know...the ones who actually try very hard to be like Rabbi Jesus. I think that's an admirable goal, and they let me walk the path of Dharma in my search for the Buddha. As I said: I'm fortunate in my friends.

Ironic you accuse others of bigotry.
Many religious businesses here in the south. With employee cars out in the parking lot wearing Obama bumper stickers. Mine is one of them.
Knowing this and now reading your post - I side with 'all religious people' and would choose to avoid you.

Instead of helping the poor and sick, they built huge palaces to glorify their wealth.

41. Some of those are more than just Conservative Christians postings

For example, I have a Right Wing libertarian Facebook "friend" who is a self-avowed atheist, and the first three catagories on that list are commonplace in his postings.

43. They forgot "How much do YOU love Jesus?"

My "Christian friends" love to make contests to see who loves Jesus more and to rout out the non-believers. I NEVER answer these even though I consider myself a follower of Christ's teachings. (I don't consider myself a "Christian" since the right wing turned Christianity into a farce.)
