Why do you Christians always throw the Bible in my face?

Satire at its best.

The Matt Walsh Blog

Seriously, it hurts. Stop it, will ya? Yesterday I walked by a church and the pastor barreled out of the door, ran into the street, screamed “BIBLE!” and chucked it right at my head.

Well, that didn’t LITERALLY happen. But he did say, “good afternoon, God bless,” which is basically the same thing.

In any case, Christians are always shoving their religion in people’s faces. Everything they say, every position they hold, every thought they express — it’s all RELIGION. Even if they don’t explicitly say, “I think this because of my religion,” we all know the score. If it comes from RELIGION, as a secularist, I must hate it. If it’s been heavily influenced or transformed by RELIGION or RELIGIOUS people, I must hate it. That’s why I’m not a big fan of art, architecture, democracy, science, medicine, philosophy, astronomy, the university system, the abolition of slavery, America, Natural…

  1. I’m planning to link to that as well. One of the best blog posts I’ve ever read.

    I have zero issue with someone saying God Bless you sneeze, or coming to my door proselytizing, or saying “have a blessed day.” I find it humorous.

    We throw hissy fits when the Texas school board attempts to force national publishers to include creationism in our textbooks. We throw hissy fits when someone can’t run for governor in 46 states because they aren’t christian. We throw hissy fits when the US military mandates “Spiritual Fitness” training prior to deployments.

    We have the rights as Americans to fight against these types of egregious intrusions of your particular flavor of christianity affecting people not seeking your input in the public square. The same as you have the right to whine incessantly about it and escalate the rhetoric to bigotry. 5k new churches a year and christians continue to play the victim card…….

    You have every right to distort it into “religious bigotry”, no matter how hypocritical that is in practice, or how hypocritically it is practiced.

    What you really mean is christian bigotry. You don’t ever stand up for the practice of religion, or someone’s rights to do so, just your own.

  3. And, I agree, that post it a little long for a point that got across nicely in half the space.

  4. I think a Christian sharing Christianity is barely akin to the Atheist Jihad that is sweeping America.

Any Thoughts?
