And you wonder why I sometimes think if Christianity as a hate group, with the cross being as repulsive a symbol as a swastika.

And yet somehow it's possible to ignore any amount of the things Jesus said about feeding the poor and remain a Christian.

I once had a guy tell me that you couldn't consider yourself a follower of Jesus unless you opposed gay marriage and abortion, two things that Jesus never mentioned. I swear these people have never read the gospels.

"Its (sic) that simple"
No it is NOT that simple! I am a Christian and not a fundie...I've accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and I believe that you should be tolerant of other beliefs too-you know, like Jesus Himself taught! Fundies are fond of conveniently ignoring such pesky concepts as love, peace, tolerance and charity and instead focusing on the negatives such as judgment, hate, fear and condemnation. Yes, one can be very well be a Christian without being a fundaMENTAList, in fact; by very definition of the word "Christian", the non-Fundie Christians are actually BETTER Christians than Fundies!

Tell us about how America is a Christian nation, again, now that you've just expelled most of them from the faith.

"There is no such thing as a Christian who is not a complete fucking idiot.
They are either one and the same or they never existed in the first place.
If you're not a complete fucking idiot, you're not a Christian.
Its that simple."
See how easy it is to spout bullshit? I know a lot of christians who are not complete fucking idiots, but I can type whatever I wish sitting at this desk, and you can't do a fucking thing about it. Na na na NA na!

Well good to know that you people are a tiny minority then. The problem is, though, is that even among Christian fundamentalists there are differences in doctrine and belief, so that some fundies think that other fundies aren't true Christians.
I actually welcome this division because if Chrstians were all totally, 100% united in everything, then we'd be totally fucked.
8/16/2012 5:14:58 AM
I totally agree.
8/16/2012 5:30:01 AM
Is that the story you're going to stick with? Or is your tune suddenly going to change when you need to tell us about how Christians are the majority or how 2 billion people can't possibly be wrong? Because honestly, I've seen so many other morons trying to have it both ways that it could be a drinking game that keeps me eternally drunk.

As so often before, this is an exact parallel to the argument that the fundamental Muslims use. Why is it that people like this can't see that obvious parallel? Or could it be that Christian fundamentalism has been influenced, consciously or unconsciously, by Islamic fundamentalism? Could it be that there's some sort of though process which goes something like, well, they have fundamentalists, we'll be fundamentalist too.
And I know that Islamic fundamentalism was originally influenced by Christian fundamentalism, and was influenced by it.

"If you're not a Christian fundamentalist, you're not a Christian."
Better stop using that web browser then (and go back to using the graphically unglamourous & user un
friendly Usenet). As what you're using now - the WWW - was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee. A Unitarian Universalist.
It's that simple.

The concept of not interpreting the Bible literally goes all the way back to the 4th century early Christians, and has been accepted by most mainstream Christians ever since. It's the fundamentalists who have invented their own separate religion - most of them within the last two centuries and mostly in English-speaking countries - so it would be easier to argue that if you're a fundamentalist, you're not a Christian.
8/16/2012 8:34:57 AM
Same thing for Muslims I'm sure. Thank FSM that in the western world religion does not have power over the secular governments.

Way to shrink the number of Christians! Since there so few of you, you'll understand if I ignore you entirely.
8/16/2012 10:08:57 AM
Since it's obvious that Christian fundamentalists know the least of everyone what's in the Bible (even your preachers) you're that simple

Fundies Make Me Sick
You sir, are an idiot. I'm a Christian and I despise Fundamentalist Christians because they are repulsive monsters who have nothing but hatred and bigotry in their hearts and I'm sure Jesus wants to come down here and bitch-slap you every time you say crap like this in His name.

It's that simple Wyatt-& so are you.
@ Fundies Make Me Sick-I would pay good $$$ to see ol' Jesus descend & actually slap people. Then I would post it on YouTube.

If you're not a Christian fundamentalist, you're not a Christian.
That may be the case, but I strongly suspect you have no idea what the fundamentals of Christianity actually are, and if you did, you probably wouldn't like it.
Both Jesus and Paul (at least I'm coming to think so, based on re-reading some of his letters) were incredibly tolerant individuals.
Jesus demanded that you not judge other individuals, feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and stop focusing on material gain on earth over spiritual gain in heaven.
Paul believed you should focus on yourself, and not worry about what other Christians were doing. He also told Christians who were married to "pagans" to not use this as a reason for divorce, not be hypocritical, and to not make being a Christian harder than it had to be.
I very rarely see any of this in Fundamentalist literature today, ergo, American Christian fundamentalists are not really fundamentalist Christians.
