Lately, I feel as though I'm being bombarded by "powerful" messages posted to facebook profiles by my Christian friends. I don't use the word bombarded because I'm particularly offended by what they post, but rather, I'm frustrated by the double standards. If I post something of an atheist nature, or something that is even remotely perceived to be so, I am attacked by a wave of offended people, telling me that I shouldn't be posting this to my profile, because it offends them. I've NEVER told ANYONE that they should not share something because I disagree with them. Ever. So why am I not given the same respect?
Anyway, I decided to post this one to my facebook for a change. We'll see what kind of response I get. I would definitely have to challenge any Christian who claims to be offended by this, because as a former Christian myself, this is pretty much exactly what we were expected to believe. How can you be offended by the truth?
This is a "powerful" video, that I believe gives an interesting perspective on what Christianity is. It speaks volumes about the fact that we are merely born into the traditions of our parents, and their parents before them, and their parents before that. When does a tradition become nothing more than a bad habit?
