Many of you know this, but Christians can be such an unreasonable, obstinate and disappointing lot. I should know, I am Christian yet I constantly have to apologize for the actions of my arrogant and ignorant brothers and sisters in Christ.
The recent episode involving this poor young boy Amos Yee, whose only mistake was to post a public youtube video of him thinking aloud on LKY’s legacy, is one example of Christianity going south, real fast. So he made some remarks that insulted Jesus. That’s bad for sure, but not as bad as calling the FUCKING POLICE TO ARREST THE BOY!
I mean, what era do we live in? This is not the Spanish Inquisition! I thought we were done persecuting and branding unbelievers with hot iron sticks?
So what if he insults Jesus? Jesus isn’t going to be less respected by all those who follow him! If you ask me, I think Jesus’d probably laugh at this whole incident and go, “Do it again, Amos! This is hilarious!”
While all you self-righteous Christian fascists are out there cheering for the utter destruction of this boy’s life, you had better be praying for your own place in heaven. The last I heard, Jesus hates a self-righteous hypocrite. I leave you with this parable from the Bible.
Luke 18:9 to 14
“To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everyone else, Jesus told this parable: “Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’ “But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’ “I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
