In other news, I got some really fucking scary e-mails from a crazy fundamentalist. I haven't talked that much on my website about my liberal views lately, but I do mention it, so the other day I open my e-mail and get this:
LIBERAL CHRISTIANS are mentioned in the bible; THEY have a form of GODLINESS but deny the power thereof
Being curious, I respond:
So I'm not allowed to be liberal? Where exactly does it say that in the Bible?
Note: I know, I know, don't feed the trolls. But it's sort of fun to start fights on the internet, and it was an innocent enough question. And she responded, so go me... I think. Read on...
liberal christians believe in abortion, abortion is MURDER of innocents. abortion is usually done to try and cover the sins of the parents.
liberal christians install women and SODOMITES as ministers---strictly PROHIBTED
in the bible. liberal christians are promoting SODOMY AND THE SODOMITE AGENDA and this will destroy marriages even more and will bring about GOD'S judgement on this nation. liberal christians promote a socialist gospel. the liberals i have met are intolerant,reactionary and are know-it-alls
When I read the story of sodom and gomorrah, it looked like it was hateful, violent people who brought down GOD's judgement on their nation. I just try to do what Jesus said; I try to love everyone, do good work in my community, encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ to grow in their faith no matter what their political beliefs are. I try to make my heart joyful and find peace in the Lord.
You don't sound peaceful, you sound upset. Over what, liberalism? Do you really think that's the worst thing God would find in the world if He came back right now?
what brought GOD'S judgement was sodomy and the SODOMITES who practice this
ABOMINATION in sodom and gomorrah. IT IS VERY CLEAR IN THE SCRIPTURES
you did not read the account of sodom and gommorah correctly, see it was
tainted by your liberal bias, read GENESIS 19:4 and 5. it clearly states
that the men of the cities wanted to have sex with the other men who came to
LOT'S house that very night. in verse eight Lot offers his daughters to the
men of sodom for sex but the sodomites [homosexuals] refused and wanted to
have sex with the MEN. THE BIBLE IS VERY CLEAR THAT SODOMY AND SODOMITES
ARE AN ABOMINATION IN GOD'S SIGHT in other verses too
I'M UPSET BECAUSE MOST OF OUR PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD ARE CAUSED BY liberals
AND their support for abortion, sodomy and sodomites, arrogance toward GOD'S
WORD, changing GOD'S word to fit their personal beliefs instead of following
what it says, their absolute intolerance of any one who doesn't believe ,
their liberal, socialist,bigoted ideas. the best liberal examples --aclu,
ted kennedy, and other liberal ilk
and that's the last e-mail I got, and somehow I lost my enthusiasm to respond.
part of me is like, "Well, this lady probably isn't real, she's probably just trying to screw with me for fun. Nobody really thinks like this."
but another part of me doubts the optimistic side, and is afraid that even if she doesn't think like this, somebody does.
no more e-mail exchanges with crazy bigots until after elections, that's my new personal rule. this stuff got to me, it really did - the hate that came through, it kept me up thinking. it's fucked up.
