I’m Sick…

Okay so once in awhile I’m allowed a good rant, aren’t I? This is my ranting blog… discussing things I’m really sick of.

I’m sick of people assuming I’m Republican simply because I’m a Christian. Granted, I tend to agree more with the Republican platform but being a Christian is not the reason.

I’m sick of people assuming I hate Liberals simply because I’m a Christian. No joke – I went up to a family at a restaurant a few weeks ago because the entire family looked really familiar, I thought I graduated high school with one of the children. They asked me where I worked and when I identified myself as a Pastor the father laughed and said, “What? Do we look like a left winged Liberals?” That’s just ridiculous.

I’m sick of the reality of what Bill Maher is referring to in his movie “Religolus” … “Religious people don’t know about Religion. … None of them could even name the Ten Commandments.” I’m quite disappointed that there weren’t people to legitimately answer Bill’s questions; its quite obvious that he still has no clue what Christianity is actually about. But evidently neither do most Christians.

  1. The “right” is referring to the “conservatives.” Or Republicans.

    The “left” is referring to the “liberals.” Or Democrats.

    It disgusts me to think that anyone would consider liberal (or democrat) equal to “not Christian.”

  2. Ok, you have stepped into my realm here so I have to dive in. I hear what you are saying. I really do and sometimes it’s all a little sickening, but isn’t what a person stands for important? If a person identifies themself as a Christian aren’t there some things, Biblical things, that they ought to be prepared to stand up for when it comes to government and what our government and country are doing?

  3. Yes, Tara! Absolutely. Like Abortion, for sure (I believe). But this is one of the big problems of a 2 party system. Not ALL Democrats want to keep Abortion legalized. Not ALL Republicans want to end same sex marriage.

    I don’t for one second want to suggest that our Christianity should not effect what we stand up for. Christians should be the forerunners in changing the world.

    But if a Christian democrat and a Christian republican get together and want to pray for the ending of abortion, I think that’s pretty cool. What I’m SICK OF, is people assuming that this is impossible. We only have TWO PARTIES… so there is A LOT of cross over, get what I’m saying?

  4. I intended to compose you a bit of note in order to give many thanks again about the awesome basics you’ve contributed above.
