Video of the day -- Christianity is unworkable

One of my objections to Christianity is that actually practicing it the way Jesus clearly defined it would mean being defenseless in a dangerous world -- suicidally so.  Bill Maher used the assassination of bin Laden to make the point.

Absolutely spot on.

Been say almost the same thing for years.

The conservative blogs I read are replete with derogatory and mocking words for gays, for example--"they're pushing their agenda on us!" And their hatred and contempt for the bi-racial guy in their WHITE HOUSE is epic.

And yet these same hypocrites, every Sunday, usually put up a "faith blog" praising the man and the religion they don't ever practice.

Maher hit all the nasty truths about them in this video.

Shaw: The psychological disconnect there is bizarre, to say the least. I'm amazed they can keep it up. It's almost as if they never actually looked at anything in the Bible except a few parts of Leviticus.

One of the most breathtaking examples of this sort of hypocrisy I ever saw was in an Ann Coulter rant (posted not that long after 9/11 as I recall) in which she claimed that one reason Christianity was superior to Islam was that, unlike the latter faith, it believed in turning the other cheek, yet in the very next sentence she started frothing at the mouth about how stupid and evil bleeding heart librulz were for (allegedly) wanting to adopt exactly that attitude towards America's enemies! Go figure!

Zosimus: I can only conclude that something like Orwell's doublethink is at work with these people. Either that or "turning the other cheek and such concepts are merely tribal labels to them, devoid of actual content.

Infidel -- It's a tribal label. Many believers label themselves as such in order to feel good and belong to something bigger than themselves. Few have ever examined their faith's doctrine in depth.

Ahab: If they can't be bothered to think coherently about their own beliefs, it's a bit much to expect the rest of us to live by them.
