I am a follower of Christ (Christian, Jesus Freak, whatever word you choose to label me as). I tend to make some ambiguous statements and people make assumptions about my political views. Please give up trying to figure out my party affiliation. All I know is that it’s been a long 18 months and I’m shocked that I’m shocked at some of the behavior of fellow Christians.
- It’s not over. The angry, bitter, sour grape Facebook statuses and Tweets continue. Can we go back to posting pics of lunch and dinner?
- The political process has been reduced to defeating issues vs. winning people.
- A lot of people need to read more and get out more. Please seek out more than one news source and form your own opinions versus quoting bullet points from angry Irish men.
- Before the election, Christians seem to trust more in worldly methods vs. God’s. The day after the election, they revert back to trusting in God’s way, declaring that He’s in control*. Was He not the day before the election? *The exception is when their candidate wins.
- Making ludicrous statements about rape are not beneficial to one’s Senate bid.
- My prediction is that the level of prayer for America will NOT increase, but I pray it does. Praying for prayer? How strange when we’ve already been told to do it.
- We put all hope in a person to change the moral climate and abdicate our personal responsibilities like giving, serving, and sharing our faith.
- As pastors, we don’t value our tax-exempt status and we’re willing to throw it away for the sake of making demonizing, dehumanizing, and demeaning comments about candidates.
- They’ll know we are Christians by our rudeness, accusations, judgmentalness, ignorance, fortune cookie wisdom, weak syllogisms, and platitudes.
- We’d rather condemn an open lesbian U.S. Senator instead of having her over for dinner. Then again, she did cause Hurricane Sandy.
- We condemn Colorado and Washington for legalizing marijuana but continue in the vice of gluttony.
- We decry same-sex marriage but go passive and permissive when it comes to divorce.
But yet, the thing that still bothers me is the continued inequality in our nation…the blatant discrimination against a targeted audience numbering almost 60 million Americans who have been…
- denied the right to vote
- denied civil and human rights
- denied the right to marry
- denied their right to choose
- prevented from receiving government services
- denied proper healthcare
- denied the opportunity to go to college
- denied the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness
