“You are led through your lifetime by the inner learning creature, the playful spiritual being that is your real self.
Don't turn away from possible futures before you're certain you don't have anything to learn from them.”

UnChristian Like Behavior

Yesterday, I came across a young man who goes by the name of Zinnia Jones on youtube. I watched several of his videos and I became intrigued by him. He is a fabulous speaker who, quite honestly, I wouldn't want to get into a debate with. He'd win, hands down.

Zinnia is an atheist and he talks about issues that are uncomfortable for most of us. In one of the videos he goes out to a protest being run by a church. He was interviewing one of the protesters and as I watched I became bewildered. How do these people call themselves Christian? They come from a place of hatred and contempt for, what it seems to me, almost anyone and everyone. They hate Jews, they hate homosexuals, they hate, they hate, they hate. How is that Christian? Did Jesus not teach compassion, love and understanding? It makes me wonder what it is they're preaching in that church of theirs . . .

I am appalled by the woman in this video . . . she is so full of hate.

Now I realize that not all Christians are this extreme. I know some pretty decent ones. All I'm saying is . . . please, for the love of the God/dess, THINK for yourselves. Don't become something just because it's the thing to do or because you were raised a certain way. Look inside yourself and follow your own path. 'An it harm NONE, do what you will.'

Ignorance at it's finest. These people even bring their kids into the mess.
I would like to know what God they are referring to. I pity them.

Indeed, Goddess knows "ignorance is bliss" and, children, there are definately a lot of blissful people out there!

People aren't born prejudice, they are made that way for whatever terrible reason. Personally, I wouldn't mind debating this man, but he is NOT worth my time.

Peace and love,

I agree so much. It is the herd mentality. One extremist leads the sheep. Pitiful in any hate based crowd.

Yes, I first saw these type of Christians at Obama's inauguration, they interviewed one live on the news who said "God hates you". I think they're just horribly brainwashed because obviously if they read the bible they'd see what Jesus actually taught. A shame really.
