Yes, it's hard to be a Christian these days, with so many professed Christians giving the faith a bad name. Count me among those who don't count.

The only parts of the Bible the ones who have read it, or at least skimmed it from time to time, take to heart are the least charitable and most insane passages from Paul's epistles and the bloodier books of the Old Testament

Don't forget Revelation. That's how they trump "Blessed are the peacemakers" and manage to be so stridently "pro-Israel" despite the doctrine of supercession, aka

God chose the Jews as His favorites and when they didn’t live up to expectations He replaced them with Christians

which used to be the justification for out-in-the-open fundamentalist anti-semitism, as opposed to the modern Palinesque "We lurve Israel, and hope the day comes quickly when most Jews will be exterminated, and the remainder converted to Christianity."

Most of them, especially the more devout ones like John Adams, would have been appalled by the sort of Christianity the Christianists practice.

Yeah, I think it's funny how in Adams' letters to Jefferson, there's a bit where he's mocking the end-of-the-world types who thought Napoleon was the Antichrist. Then again, he was a Unitarian, and we all know what they're like.


The problem is not with Christ or true Christians, but with the subsect of Dispensationalists.

Those are the pricks who create people like David Koresh, mass-killers hiding in sheep's clothing. If that group was treated like Charles Manson, it would give a clearer picture of the abomination they've created.


"The thing about Christian Fundamentalists and biblical literalists that’s so infuriating is that" that they're actually complete nihilists and not actually any sort of Christians at all (indeed, they don't have any religion whatsoever). But it's interesting to see that the nihilism of capitalism spread so strongly into religion under capitalism too, no?
