“I am honestly having an issue lately with people online… “I want to talk about God” they say, “Let’s debate”… so you get a few sentences in and before you even have so much as a PAGE they’re telling you things like, “STOP TRYING TO MAKE ME BELIEVE IN YOUR GOD!” >_>… Erm… If you DON’T want to talk about it… then don’t TELL me that you want to talk about it. Honestly, that just makes you look crazy.”
They then gave a long list of things people take out of context in the bible.
I left a comment agreeing that most of their examples are taken out of context but said I don’t see how two of them are – the parable about jesus commanding the rich man to sell his possessions as being against excess wealth or the depiction of slavery in the bible not being merely indentured servitude. If you don’t know, two forms of slavery are described in the bible, one for jews/israelites and another for foreigners/heathens, just as in america there was one form (indentured servitude) for whites and another (sub-human cattle with no rights) for non-white foreigners.
“That wasn’t what this blog was about… so, as you can see, I deleted his messages and blocked him. He has harassed me on other names on xanga before for a long time. I’ve found that there is no reasoning with him over these matters. He is exactly the type of person that I was referring to in this blog. ^_^ Kudos for actually understanding. And just so we’re clear, God actually BLESSED people with riches on many occasions, so… no, God did not believe that everyone needed to be poor. :P”
So just to sum up, “LISTEN TO ME, HOW DARE YOU NOT ACCEPT WHAT I’M SAYING? STOP BEING UNREASONABLE, INTOLERANT AND CLOSED-MINDED TOWARD ME!! Oh, you have a point? ::blocked::”
For calling for tolerance and open-mindedness and then blocking someone making a minor point to avoid losing a tiny little argument in the comment section of that very blog before even making a single response to the person, I dub you xanga douchebag of the week.
