I was watching Eugenie Scott talk about creationism on youtube, and she mentioned a comic called Big Daddy?. Interesting read I say. Especially the little aryan christian who stands up and overthrows the theories of the horrible blackhaired eastern european looking professor. Look-a-here:
It’s always interesting to see the underlying racism that is such a big part of modern christianity. White racism. Lovely isn’t it? I can’t help but thinking that within the statement “but christianity preaches love” there is a quiet appendix of “even for other people, like foreigners, gays and so on. You know, the people we don’t really like”. And no offence, but very few religions really preach love. Christianity and its’ related religions most definitely doesn’t. Love thy next, but kill all people who doesn’t agree with you, and feel free to hit your slaves as long as you don’t poke out their eyes or hurt their teeth. Christianity preaches obedience to a god. To a system. To rules laid down thousands of years ago.
It’s like when you talk to christians about moral, and they seem to think they have the upper hand on this question. I mean, they obey god, and god is the one who makes the rules, following him makes your actions morally just. And I have to tell you, I only realized this the other day! They do not mean the same thing as I do, at all! For me a morally just action is something that is by society decided as good. It’s immoral to teach kids to hide weapons in the forest for example. To corrupt kids and teach them how to lie to the police. It’s immoral to give away addictive substances hidden inside painkillers. It would be a bad thing to provide suicidals with razorblades. But, in the bible, it’s immoral to take slaves from the people of Israel. All other people are basically ok though. If you follow the bible, you can go out on a killing spree on gay clubs, and you would still not be doing anything wrong, by biblical standards. Evil and good are not constants, but decided after gods “word”. I’m amazed. I really had no clue, that these two words were so fundamentally different.
