Oddly, perhaps, my "assumption" was reading you make a bold and unambiguous statement
in this post
. That statement was:
I've heard many right wing Christians say we should bomb the middle East until it's glass.
It's pretty clear. I do love the way you felt a need to add right wing
Christians in there. I've seen that sort of thing before, often, but
won't go any deeper into that, to avoid casting the thread adrift.
You backed that unambiguous statement up with this web page
. I went to
the webpage, read it in it's entirety, and found NO support for the statement you so boldly made. I don't know - maybe you thought no one would
actually check it out, maybe you didn't really read it yourself, or - most likely - you read things into it that simply weren't there, but which you
WISHED were there.
1) "Conditioned toward accepting Christianity" is not "Christian".
2) There is nothing about being American that would "condition one towards accepting Christianity" - America is not a theocracy, and most of the
Americans I know are "conditioned" AGAINST Christianity. We see that often enough even at ATS.
3) "Rejecting Islam" does not automatically make one a "right wing Christian".
4) There is nothing about being an American that would cause one to "reject Islam" - again, America is not a theocracy, and surprise surprise, I
actually know Americans who not only fail to reject Islam, but actually ARE Muslims.
"Bat # insane" (from your first link in this post) is not a typically Christian phrase. The link again fails to support your contention.
This leaves us with your final link, to WND. The ONLY indicator of the author's religion I could find in that entire mess was "How dare we Christians
and Jews think...", which, I presume, is what you are basing your contention that the author is a Christian on. There was nothing else in the entire
gob of muck that would indicate such. How do you know he's a "Christian", and not a "Jew"? it could go either way from that statement, and the link
certainly didn't amount to a sermon, or anything else that could be linked with either Christianity or Judaism - other than that single ambiguous
In any event, one man is not "many
right wing Christians", even if that one man DID pan out to be a Christian (by no means proven) AND right
Perhaps YOU should not make assumptions about the whole of Christendom based upon a single WND posting - which was, apparently, the best you could
come up with in an effort to support your statement, and which was definitely NOT your initial attempt to support it, NOT what you based it upon to
begin with. That link was not in the original post where the bold statement was made.
Yes, apparently my mileage DOES vary. You seem a bright lad - I think you can figure out EXACTLY what that means.
ETA: Let me help you:
Here you go
Klayman was born to Jewish parents, and identifies himself as "both a Jew and a Christian".
It seems Mr. Klayman just can't decide WHAT he is.
The only "Jewish Christians" are "Messianic Jews" - which I suppose he would claim to be, if he were one.
You should read that Wiki page. that dude is a real piece of work! he sued his own mother
, then blamed the Clinton Administration for putting
out the information about the suit that his own brother
was responsible for releasing to Newsweek! it's a laugh a minute! He seems fairly
unable to get much of anything right, at all.
I just expected more reliable sources from you is all, given the boldness and precision of the original statement. My mistake. Sorry 'bout that.
