Angry Christians

I wanted to talk a minute about mean and angry Christians.  I would never say that all or most Christians are mean.  Christian principles are a blueprint for kindness, which is why it blows my mind when I see things like this.


This signs recently showed up in Clyde, NC and ruffled some feathers.  What is puzzling that this sign acts like it is ridiculous that someone would possibly suggest that the God would be for tolerance or coexisting.  I'm pretty sure Jesus talked quite a bit about loving your neighbor and all that jazz.

Where does all this anger and bile come from?   Its one thing having beliefs, but how could anyone that subscribes to Christian beliefs think this is the right thing to do.

Check out this rolling angermobile....


That little line about Mohammed is ridiculously antagonistic......Yikes.........

Of course what discussion on angry Christians would be complete without a mention of our local Rev. Grizzard, who make national headlines by BURNING BIBLES.


Then of course we have the patron saint of mean angry Christians:  Fred Phelps.

Not my photo
Possibly one of the meanest men to ever call themselves a Christian, Fred Phelps was the founder of the Westboro Baptist Church which made themselves famous by picketing the funerals of dead homosexuals with charming signs that said "God Hates Fags".  Not content being hated only half the population of the Country Fred and his followers started picketing the funerals of dead soldiers with signs that said "Thank God for Dead Soldiers".  Fred's level of offensiveness was so brazen that some felt that he was simply trying to get attention.  On one occasion the local KKK actually held a counter protest to stop Phelps from picketing a dead soldiers funeral.  This would be the one and only time in history that the KKK would be considered the lesser of two evils.  Fred Phelps recently passed away.  Personally I was shocked that someone this mean was capable of death.

Now, I certainly don't want to go on any long winded rant here, but please.......if there are any angry Christians out there, please don't be a Fred Phelps.   Just relax.  Jesus was a cool guy, with some great ideas.  He was all for treating people with respect regardless of who they were.   Just think about that next time you want to make a billboard telling gay people to kiss your ass.

To cleanse our pallet, I wanted to end with a list of Christians who are/were neither angry or mean......

Robin Roberts.........


Jimmy Carter.....


Martin Luther King......


Pope Francis......

Okay, that's actually a different pope, but close enough

Jesus H. Christ.....

  1. If you ever run out of mad Christians, mosey over to Stuff Fundies Like at www.stufffundieslike.com. Their focus is on the Independent Fundamentalist Baptist movement (ie, cult).
