Alienware

Idiotic Christians that aren't open-minded enough to be christian.

epiphanyofhope said this in response to the article I posted about the 2.5 ton graven image.

Such a shame... Totally misunderstand the context of everything in the Bible...


So I responded with:
*sigh* You are the shame.

You are an idiot. I'm sorry, but there's a couple things you need to understand:

A) There wasn't any 'context' to understand in that article because the only thing out of the bible it covered was the 10 commandments. There was no context to the 10 Commandments, they were exhibited 'as is', there weren't any lines of scripture between them, ie: no context.

B) That article was a very accurate portrayal of how americans that don't proscribe to the christian religion feel about a judge attempting to press his beliefs on us. You may not have a problem with the "basic moral code" represented there, but I do. So do many many people, some of whom were our "Founding Fathers". You may recall that in this country, we have something called Freedom of Religion. That means all religions, not just yours. Until it's ok to post a copy of the Wiccan code of faith in every courthouse across the country, I don't want to see your commandments there either.

C) Whether you appreciate it or not, "Thou Shalt Have No Other Gods Before Me" is a plain and grevious violation of the aforementioned freedom of religion.

If you have any questions as to why people see it as a problem, feel free to e-mail me at x_rumour_x@livejournal.com, or post in response to this. I have no compunction about taking sides in this particular dispute and really would like to hear how you can justify a federal judge putting a 2 and a half ton graven image in a courthouse. If you are going to be stereotypically closemindedly christian, you can keep your idiosyncratic bullshit to yourself.
