WTF Christianity

During a Philadelphia fundraiser back in 2008, Barack Obama said, in response to Republican attacks, “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun, because from what I understand folks in Philly like a good brawl. I’ve seen Eagles fans.” rousing applause

Seems like an eternity ago, doesn’t it? Since then, America voted for Hope and Change. Healthcare was reformed. The Recovery Act saved our economy. Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was repealed. And a new political party emerged and changed the landscape of Washington.

These days death threats against politicians are no longer major news stories. Since Sarah Palin’s comments about candidate Obama “palling around” with terrorists, the Town Halls of 2009, and the constant fear mongering by the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck, when you speak your mind in public, you put your life on the line.

A State of the Union address boldly proclaiming American exceptionalism is nothing more than a “WTF moment”…

Super-Christian Sarah Palin is now responding to the Commander-In-Chief with what the fuck. Rush Limbaugh is defending his degrading imitation of Chinese President Hu Jintao while Asian Americans calling for an apology receive, you guessed it, death threats.

The point of this meandering post is this: Christians, American, true, Christians; you know, conservatives who place virtue ahead of kindness – what would someone like Jesus think of your behavior, your message, your living testimony to the world?

  1. Yes! Thank you for being a sane voice in this crazy wilderness. I am a believer, and so hate the fact that s. palin thinks she speaks for me, or that anyone thinks that she in anyway represents the Jesus that I have come to know. He lives justly, loves mercy, and walks humbly. In fact the opposite of those you name and so many more who demand such horrible attention. They are small people, that sadly have people hang on their every word. They will be accountable for every word. For that I am grateful.
