Here we go again, Christians vs Muslims. A Florida dumb-ass, Terry Jones needs some exposure so he and his (Christian) church are going to burn the Quran. Even after a warning from General Petraeus that burning the Quran Could endanger American troops, these fine people don’t care. Maybe the collection plate is not enough to sate this hateful Bible thumper.
Sometimes I am not proud to be an American. I love the country, it’s a certain faction of the people I can’t stand, primarily Christians. In fact not all people of this “believe or we will kill you” faith are evil. Some of my best friends are Christians. And Jews. And Deists. My wife is a devout Christian and a good person, proof that the two creeds can coexist.
Although I consider myself a southerner, I live in a Christian dense populace in the Midwest. Somehow I’ve managed to survive the relentless push and pull for me to be a Christian. I will never be one.
I don’t hate Christians. I just don’t, in spite of the fact that more blood has been spilled in the name of Christ than any other religious prophet I know. If Christ did return to earth he would demolish most of the churches built in his name.
I don’t hate Muslims either. And I am not an Atheist.
If you are a Christian who can think logically, who doesn’t hate people of other faiths, who doesn’t push me to join you or beg money from me and the million other things that give your faith a bad name, this is not directed toward you.
