If you’ve read To Kill a Mockingbird, this line should be familiar
“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)… There are just some kind of men who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.”
– Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
Ain’t that the truth. Especially when you look at today’s politicians. They side with God and Jesus, who by the way, went out of their way to help the needy, but not with the people in need of help. It just blows my mind how evil some “Christians” are. I put it in quotes, because I don’t believe that they are true Christians. I find atheist hippies more Christian than people who believe that they believe in God.
And it really is as easy as looking down the street. Going to church in a Mercedes, or a Bentley? You better believe you’re one of them hypocrites. Still follow the Catholic cult of raping children? Oh, not your priest? Think of it this way. A drunk person who took a piss in public may end up on the sexual predator list in your neighborhood. Although he did not harm anyone, he’s now branded as a sexual predator for life. That’s who you are. You’re associated with the sexual predators. You’re now part of their cult, even if you didn’t do any harm. You’re labeled. Are you sure you still want to be a Christian? The same as those who went on Crusades to kill many in the Middle East? The same as those who killed Natives because they wouldn’t accept their delusions? The same as those who bomb parent planning clinics? Want it or not, you’re now part of their crazy club. Even Jesus didn’t call himself a Christian. Think about it.
But the problem doesn’t stem from the charismatic charlatans who thump the Bible. It comes from the mindless sheeple. The people who follow like good little sheep because they’ve been told do by their leader. Who still lives like that in today’s day and age? Definitely not any moral person with common sense. That leaves the lost sheep who will follow their leader just like the Nazis did during World War II. “Kill the Jews? I know it’s bad and it doesn’t make sense, but my leader told me to. I’m just doing my job”.
