I admire her courage for standing up and confronting this dingus. It never ceases to stun me how ignorant Christians can be about their own Bible. And how so hypocritical even literalists can be, openly violated the Bible while they dare to try to judge others. Once I had a short conversation with a Biblical literalist, which went like this:
Them: “…and what’s the most disgusting of all is we have these homosexuals spreading Satan’s teachings in our schools! You know the Bible says we should stone them to death, and maybe it’s about time we realized we’re a Christian nation and need to follow Christ’s teachings!”
Me: “Jesus said you were supposed to murder homosexuals?”
Them: “It’s not murder if you’re doing God’s will.”
Me: “OK, two questions. First, are you saying Jesus said you are supposed to kill your fellow humans if they’re gay, and second, why does the most powerful being in the Universe, who created the Universe and everything in it, need to have you as their personal hit man? Are you saying God is so helpless they can’t punish these evildoers themselves?”
Them: “Jesus loves us and wants us to obey his teachings. That’s all you need to know.”
Me: “You haven’t broken any Commandments or teachings in the Bible? How about the ones about never shaving and wearing tassels on your clothing? How about not stealing, something I know you’ve broken?”
Them: “We’re all sinners.”
Me: “So should I punish you? Can I put you to death for violating God’s will?”
Them: “No, because you don’t believe.”
Me: “But I do believe. You’ve just borne false witness. That’s another Commandment.”
Them: “Leave me alone or I’ll kick your ass.”
Me: “Did God just tell you to do that? Otherwise you’ve just threatened to break another Commandment.”
Sobering thought of the day: people like that are allowed to vote.
