Anti-Christian Bigotry Is Getting Scary

The scariest animal is a frightened one; this goes double for humans. That's why the anti-Christian bigotry prevalent among moonbats is so disturbing. Some progressives actually believe their own rhetoric, and regard anyone who has not renounced the Christian God as a malevolent psychopath.

This bizarrely incongruous opinion of Christians has backed up out of the lunatic fringe like something from a clogged toilet to infect mainstream liberal thought. You can actually turn on you TV set to hear popular celebrities exclaim that Christians are "just as threatening" as mass-murdering Muslim terrorists. Or you can click over to The Independent and read this by Johann Hari, in an otherwise sensible article that recounts the horrors faced by a woman who wanted to escape from Islam:

She was beaten for speaking out, and had to go into hiding. One day, her husband and four of their friends were taken away. Nine months later, in another hiding place, she read that they had been executed. […]
If Christian fundamentalists were doing this — as they used to, and would like to again — none of us would hesitate in erupting in rage.

Christians want to execute the relatives of their critics? Is this jackass completely insane?

Probably not: but his ideology is, and he shares it with an alarming number of people.

If Christians were even half so awful as bigoted secular progressives have convinced themselves, almost any measures would be justified to rid the world of them. In the future, Christians may long nostalgically for the days when all they had to worry about was being methodically repressed by the ACLU and ridiculed by the degenerates in the entertainment industry.

Maybe they'll bring back feeding Christians to lions. Hollywood would love it.

Comments

The comment was meant to relate to the leftists how evil Islam really is... the only way they can do that is to compare it with Christianity. More fake but accurate stuff.

I'd venture to say that the vast majority of lefties who honestly believe that rhetoric have either never met a real Christian, or they have but don't realize it.

People brought up outside a Christian home, whose only knowledge of Christianity comes from an atheist college prof, think they can teach others about the subject.

I've known quite a few lefties just like that, they are openly hostile towards Christians, and as soon as they find out you're one, they are not your friend.

---I'd venture to say that the vast majority of lefties who honestly believe that rhetoric have either never met a real Christian, or they have but don't realize it.---

Rather, they have an indoctrinated, skewed view of Christianity that is fed to them since young by liberal propagandists such as the ACLU, LGBT groups, atheists and even Perpetual Outragers.

The writer's quoting 'Christian fundamentalists who once murdered apostates' is likely based on outdated and politicized myths about the Inquisition.

The writer also conveniently neglects to mention that his paragraphs can be accurately modified as below (modifications in bold):

"Imagine a woman – let's call her Natalya – who has been an unthinking atheist all her life, just because her family and her friends are, too, and because the state sponsors atheism. One day, she decides to convert to any religion, philosophy or political view other than the official one-party view. As soon as she is ratted out by a neighbor, she is arrested and eitehr executed or sent to the gulags in Seberia.

If modern-day atheists were doing this – as they used to in the USSR, Vietnam, Cambodia, and would like to again - Hey, waitaminnit, they still are! China, Cuba, North Korea still harass, arrest and execute 'dissenters' – and the liberal-atheists are completely rageless, and in fact regularly praise such tyrants as Castor and Chavez, since to their minds religious discrimination only happens when religious believers are NOT on the receiving end. The difference is the colour of their philosophy. There's a word for this: 1984 atheist totalitarian fascism.

I second NudeGayWhales comments, especially regarding atheists who think they can teach on the subject of Christianity. Having earned several degrees, I encountered many in academia many of whom were atheists or agnostics. These "pros" had never read the bible nor had they ever used a concordance or studied the original languages, yet were oh so quick to tell ME and others just what they expected Christian behavior to consistent of. They had zero hostility toward other faiths but were rabidly hostile toward Christ and all who profess Him. Also, I encountered several Jews who discounted the Hebrews scriptures as "mere tales" even if they had received little schooling in it. But because they were ethnic Jews, others who listened to them counted them as "experts" though they clearly knew little. Could it be that they're hostile because Christ is real and His message & mission are true? I know this is the case, because were it a fairy tale, then they'd not find it threatening.

Let 'em go on as they are. One day it'll hit them and maybe they'll actually crack the book and see the truth for themselves.

"In the future, Christians may long nostalgically for the days when all they had to worry about was being methodically repressed by the ACLU and ridiculed by the degenerates in the entertainment industry."

Should read "Christians will long...."

Read Revelation to see what will happen to After Rapture Believers during the Tribulation. Beheadings, persecutions, etc. will be very commonplace under the antichrist.
