I can tolerate a wide range of opinions being expressed here. That’s one of the things I truly enjoy about TPRS. Visitors here encompass all points on the ideological spectrum, and I think that’s a pretty cool thing. What I cannot abide is arrogant stupidity camouflaged as conviction. Our latest DUMB@$$ dropped this gem in the comments on my post on Liberal Christians:
“How would Jesus vote? If you really think that he would vote one way or another, I would suggest that you need to get back to your beliefs. “
Jesus created the universe and everything in it. Jesus died on the cross for my sins. Jesus wrote the entire Bible through inspiration.
His Word tells us that the murder of babies is evil (many times HE tells us about the blessings of children and how important they are), that sodomites are depraved and evil, and much more.
Based upon His Word the choice between President Bush and Senator Kerry was as they say “a no brainer”. President Bush is far from perfect but he claims to be a born again the Bible way Christian and he lives a live that is FAR closer to what God commands.
There can be no separation between belief and action including voting; otherwise we would just be hypocrits like the liberals. And God hates hypocrits.
While I am normally loathe to call out someone who has taken the time to visit TPRS (it’s not like I’m Glenn Reynolds, after all…), I cannot let this pass unanswered. The appalling arrogance displayed in these comments is staggering. I may not be a Christian, but I do respect the religion and those who profess it. I CANNOT abide those who honestly believe that their beliefs give them the right, nay, the responsibility, to judge those who do not believe as they do.
David Hanson has revealed himself to be the sort of person that you’d probably find carrying signs at one of Fred Phelps’ protests. And he has the gall to call Liberals “hypocrites” (not that he can actually spell the word)? How arrogant, self-righteous, self-superior, and judgemental can one person be? This has GOT to be a record or something….
I welcome people of all viewpoints…as long as you are respectful and recognize that you represent but ONE opinion. And we all know what are opinions are like, don’t we? Someone ought to remind David Hanson of that.
