First off, where do these Christians live? Most of the ones (I say most, because there are some exceptions), accept you for who you are as a person. I
haven't heard any of them curse out another for their choice of religion, which makes sense, since we have a Buddhist, Muslim, a couple denominations
of Christianity, an Atheist, and an Agnostic (myself). One of my closest friends is a "die hard" Christian, and yet they still don't meet a lot of
what the OP posted.
I will say though, that there are some people out there that consider Christianity the "true" religion (I'm sure every religion has these type of
people). One person I met really didn't want to hang out with me because I was Agnostic. I tried to explain my religion, but they wouldn't have any
As for not letting kids see Santa because it really stands for satan, I think you watched a little too much of Churchlady from Saturday Night Live
. Seriously though, it seems you've met that 1 in [insert number above 100,000 and below 1 million] people that believe Santa is the devil.
Also, the only time I've ever heard a Christian (or anyone, for that matter), put 4 syllables in "Jesus" is when they are:
1. Going down a hill on a roller-coaster.
2. Getting caught in the middle of a natural disaster.
3. Getting caught in the middle of a bad thunderstorm, with cloud-to-ground lightning, hail hitting your back, wind gusting at 70mph, and a tornado
siren going off (guilty).
4. Suffering some sort of physical injury, often to toes or fingers, and also in dark places.
5: Sarcasm, as when someone swerves into your lane with no turn signal and immediately slows down to 20mph below the speed limit.
Finally, you can't honestly believe that only Christians hate people - does that mean that the terrorists in the Middle East are Christians? (Last I
checked, they still followed Islam). I mean, the terrorists hate "us" because we are inferior to their faith (us collectively, because it isn't
just one group of people they hate).
With a concluding remark, a lot of the OP's statements could be applied to any religion, except for some (such as the ET one, and the
PS: Me being an Agnostic, I have tried to read all the major holy books to understand more about each religion. In my collection, I so far have a few
bibles (including a study bible), the Koran, Some teachings from the Golden Dawn & other occult-based groups, as well as the Bhagavad Gita. Once
again, it is possible that an Atheist could know more about a bible than a Christian, but not every single Atheist on the planet knows more about the
bible than a Christian.
