Save the Hypocrites
By Ronin, 28 Aug, 2011. It occurred to me earlier today, as I was asked to donate to a missions group that responds to natural disasters that they had zero business going.
Keeping in mind, that I live deep in the Bible belt and see Christian organizations doing things for the homeless, the addicted and the less fortunate all the time. I am used to seeing this, good on them, Christians help, that is what they do.
I can understand helping your own; I have no issues with that. I can even (slightly) understand helping the people that got themselves into the situations that required them to seek help.
I know the Christians are out to save the world and they would love to see the people they help clean up their acts and join with them in service to others. All of those things, I have grown up around and I am used to them.
Here is what I do not get. I know that right now dozens of Christian groups are already responding to the latest crisis. Even more of them are out gathering supplies, taking up donations and praying for the victims.
A hurricane in Florida we can handle but them folks up north, well let us just say that they are a little softer than we are. I know they need help and someone should maybe save um but why Christians?
I just wanted to ask the Christians if they realize that some of the people north of the Bible belt hate them. These people demanded winter break replace Christmas vacation and that all Christmas plays stop completely.
Pray in school and Christians are condemned, voice any opinion based on Christian values like gay marriage being immoral or wrong and be condemned, shunned and occasionally worse. Follow the PC line and you are an exceptional human being, one with intelligence and tolerance. In short, only one side gets to have an opinion and it is not the Christians.
The Christians are scoffed at, talked about and face an endless barrage of hate from some of our northern neighbors. Christians are reminded that all religion is bad and that they are guilty of just as many atrocities as the Taliban and al Qaeda. That they have absolutely no right to question anyone ever or even to discuss why such hate is not warranted. Heaven forbid they discuss why our northern hypocritical neighbors need to change and adopt values that are more sensible.
The same folks look down on the rugged individuals headed towards them on an ad hock rescue mission. They see them as backwards and ignorant. You know the type, they bring their own chainsaws, power tools, generators and massive 4×4 trucks that have little problems pushing debris, fording swollen creeks and flooded roads. The same trucks that they wanted to make illegal. All this and more, they will do to help people that think the vast majority of them are a danger to our country.
I wanted to ask the Christians those questions and a few others but they are busy. Busy, preparing to go help people that will welcome them over the next few hours and a few days after.
The same people will taunt their rescuers when their sad pathetic lives are back to normal and those Americans that still have a spirit of community and a desire to help, have returned home, ordered replacements for the supplies they used and sit down to wait for another crisis.
I am glad that this crisis was not as severe as expected and the hordes of under appreciated workers will not have to work very hard to save a bunch of hypocrites.
If you want to know why, I live down south, away from the big lights of the northern cities and the hustle and bustle of the educated and cultured; just compare my neighbors with theirs and I think that you will understand.Explore posts in the same categories: By Ronin, Christians, Heroes, hypocrisy, patriotism
