Hypocrisy

As a quick follow-up to my last post …

Scottie (@ Scottie’s Toy Box) in a recent comment compared church attendance to abortion – and wow! Did his remark ever hit home!

Christians will argue and stomp their feet and carry signs and march and threaten pregnant women at Planned Parenthood because they believe abortion is KILLING a human being.

BUT … they will gather in churches in large numbers to sing and worship their god … along with hugging their “brothers and sisters in the Lord.” While some may be wearing a mask, there are many who aren’t simply because they support a president who denies the seriousness of the current pandemic.  AND who they believe is “god-anointed.”

In other words, they seem to think it’s OK to threaten the lives of human beings who, by all acceptable standards, are moving and alive with functioning brains — yet they throw a hissy fit if a woman chooses to have an abortion.

Does anyone else see the hypocrisy in action?

*****************************
PLEASE NOTE: This post is NOT meant as a take-off point for abortion arguments, so please refrain from any comments/arguments related to same. I have a post waiting in the wings that I will publish one of these days on the topic — and once I do, the floor will be open. If anyone chooses to ignore this request, I will be forced to remove your remarks. Thanks for your cooperation!

  1. Hey, these are people who are against abortion but for the death penalty, so I am not at all surprised at their demands.

    Actually we should be thanking the churched who insist on attending services … unprotected … as they are testing for us whether the precautions prescribed are necessary or not. Whether they live or die, valuable information will be accrued.

    Of course, while this experiment is proceeding we should avoid such people so as to not skew the natural experiment they have volunteered for, and well, to protect ourselves from their virulence.

    Imaging practicing unprotected Christianity, what will they think of next!

  2. Absolutely. I actually feel like this is a form of idolotry. People are putting their libertarian views above the love of neighbor and betraying the heart of the gospel.

  3. Gee … even as a lifelong atheist I think comparing church attendance and abortion may be stretching things a bit …. I mean, I get the point, but they are really rather different issues.
    Though ….. the fact that, in 2020, there are still people attending churches (or mosques or synagogues or temples or whatever) at all, would seem a fairly good argument for the pro-abortion campaign in itself.
    [sorry, I take that back. it was a silly and possibly inflammatory comment for which I am ashamed]

    But really …. is it really that hard to wear a mask in a country where 3,000 people are dying every day of COVID-19 when, in numerous other countries (with, dare I say it, better leadership) there are none? It would certainly help if people came to understand that the concept of ‘God-given rights’ is a nonsense.

  4. They are already not Pro-Life in my opinion when they are Pro-Military and Pro-War. Plus, being religious is being generally hypocritical anyways as they “break god’s laws” just about any time they want, then just ask for forgiveness as if everything will be ok.

  5. I bet the early Christians would roll over in their graves if they could see the hypocracy of Christian people today, they seem to ignore all of this.

    “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”(Proverbs 6:16-19)

  6. I know lots of devoted Catholics (my mother is one) who don’t go to church because they don’t want to get sick. Attendance at Mass during a pandemic (or when you are personally sick) is not a requirement. I don’t know about other religions & I really don’t care. If they want to go to church & get sick & get their loved ones sick, well so be it. Maybe this is “God’s will”, although I have never adhered to that kind of thinking. I’ve always thought that “God’s will” is something that is obvious AFTER the fact.

    • Yes it does not make sense, these Christians are against abortion as they claim it is killing babies, yet they dont care that their stupidity may kill or at least cause discomfort and possibly internal organ injuries to family and friends. These people should fined thousands of dollars and locked up until their brains start working properly.

  7. Yes. The answer is yes. They are not pro-life. They are anti-abortion, and anti-disconnecting-life-support-to-dead-bodies, but they are not pro-life; most support capital punishment, it’s difficult to find one against war (the reason I haven’t attended a church since 2001,) and they have no trouble with colonialism and exploitation of others in the name of profit.
