93. As a liberal Christian, arguing with a Fundie is a lot like arguing with a drunk.

First they cannot comprehend that anyone would dare to think, second just as the church leaders in the days of Yeshua/Jesus would do, they feel some unwritten right to be the supreme authority. What is stunning is they can quote the words in red letters, then in the next breath spout cruel condemnations to anyone for just about any reason. Of course my only recourse is to "gently" remind them about the Guttenberg press and Marty/"take on the Vatican"/ Luther who translated the works into their language so ALL could read it. It doesn't always end the anger or rhetoric, but what it usually does is force the other person to start "Well for me...."

A while back I was fired up about the hatred spewed from the Fundie pulpits to which our new pastor said "They have simply forgotten WHOSE Table it is they sit at."

STILL I will admit this openly and freely and often: I see more decency, compassion and efforts by those who deny Christianity than is often seen among those who preach these things and forget how to do them for the sake of self-righteousness.
