A rarity, but this was actually prompted by a, let’s call it a discussion, that took place on a friend’s LJ in relation to something she posted at about half past dark this morning. I’d link to the actual entry but it’s protected and all of like 1 or 2 of you would be able to see it. It cast a rather amusing light on the theory of Jesus Christ, and all that. And suffice it to say, while it wasn’t aimed at being insulting or anything to any particular person or religion, but rather for exactly what it was–a little half-awake amusement at insanely early in the morning, someone decided to take special exception to it and went off on a tangent about how the poster must not understand her religion and has taken escentially to attacking it. They were called out for it, and told basicly they were imagining it (for the record, everyone else pretty much thought it was fucking hillarious), and the commenter proceeded to demand that she justify her supposed belief about that particular religion. It was said, yet again, that there was no attacking anyone’s religion, beliefs, or whatever in that entry, at which point she pretty much just got pissy and decided the role of teenaged drama queen suited her better than that of, well, an inteligent human being. So because I do have a religious person or two hanging around my flist, I thought I’d just kinda put the question out there. Should an entry like this *really* be taken to such an extreme as to declare a proverbial holy war on anyone who doesn’t necessarily agree with your particular religious beliefs? The entry in question, with the original poster’s permission, gets stuck here for context.
The majority of people in this country (INCLUDING THE PRESIDENT) actually believe that a mythical anthropomorphic, self paranoid “Bible-God” raped/impregnated a child virgin in order to give birth to himself in order to be sacrificed to himself in order to sit beside himself in order to save the world from himself as some kind of sadistic experiment in psychopathic, self replicating, redemption by filling the heads of precious innocent impressionable children with disturbing stories of hell and damnation and devils and eternal suffering.
Now tell me in some way there isn’t just a little amusement in this particular entry. You may need to read it a couple times to catch on.
