Why leftists bash Christians

No group in America is so attacked as born again Christians. The staff of VUI is divided among those who attend church on a regular basis and those who do not. But, the entire staff is bothered by what leftists do in regards to Christians. The left pundits call Christians “haters” and “bigots.” They ignore the teaching of hate from Islamic extremists. They instead dwell on Christians.

If anyone who professes a belief in Christ falls from Grace, the left is quick to pound. They do so asking for us to tolerate those who decide to kill in the name of their religion. The leftists chastise people for labeling Islamic extremists, but are quick to label fallen Christians as defining the religion.

Now, the leftists are going after Mother Teresa. They are attacking the issuing of a stamp to be created in Mother Teresa’s honor. To those leftist, Mother Teresa had a great sin. That sin was being a Christian. Mother Teresa worked most of her life living among the poorest of the poor in the slums of India. Such a place has poverty and suffering the likes of which none of us, especially the leftists can ever understand. Mother Teresa gave her life comforting those who most of us put out of our minds. Mother Teresa lived the teachings of Christ.

For that, she is being attacked by leftists who fear her being honored with something as simple as a stamp. That is the logic of the far left. To them, anything Christian must be criticized.

There is a reason for that. The teachings of Christ scare the far leftists. They like to live their lives outside of God. God as the source of human rights removes government. Government is the God of the far left. They depend on government to give them their rights. Further, the teachings of Christ are difficult for leftists to live with. Being honest and open with people has to be put aside if the goals of government demand it. Personal lives must be justified. Leftists loathe the idea that some higher power might have a better idea on how to live than them.

That is why the leftists have so much hate for Christians. That is why they hate the teachings of love taught by Christ. Psychologically, the leftists cannot allow even the hint that some power outside their own egos decides what is right and wrong. As such, the leftists must deride those with Christian faith, insult them, and like a school boy, put their fingers in their ears and pretend that they cannot hear the truth.

  1. You are dense. Don't you know stamps are reserved for pill poppers who die on the toilet?

  2. You'd probably be interested in googling Evan Satay's speech to the Heritage Foundation re: Why liberals think they way they do. Very helpful in understanding that they reject absolutes (but are blind to their own), so they become opportunists and pragmatists. They will use whatever advances their cause. Mother Theresa doesn't fit their worldview! So, they are down on her. I am not Catholic but would rather see her on a stamp than silly entertainers.

  3. I don't know about other liberal Christians, but here is why most right wing Christians make me sick:

    "And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are; for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men ... But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou has shut thy door, pray to the Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." --Matthew 6:6

  4. This blog is very interesting. I think people fail to miss the point that being a Christian is all about love. Everyone desires to be loved by someone or something. Atheists or other nonbelievers may have had a bad experience in church or with Christians trying to slam their beliefs in their faces. I can assure you that not all Evangelical Christians are holding up signs at soliders funerals that say God hates America. The message is plain as simple Jesus wants us to show love to the lost and hurting no matter how bad we are treated and looked down upon. God does not hate us if he did he would not have sent Jesus to die for every sin that we committed in the past present and future. Jesus was willing to lay down his life for us, I do not know if I could truly say that about the presidents of America. Jesus paid the ultimate price so that we could live in freedom and have eternal life. If any of you have been rejected by Christians I am very sorry, so are other Christians who are trying to live by God's word and even God is sorry. No matter where you are or what you have done God loves you and wants to be there for you if you will let him. Everyone has a freewill and can make the choice to believe that Jesus died on the cross for our sins and that he rose again, and if you believe in the name of Jesus you will be saved. It is a free gift it is not earned. Or you have the right to believe in other things. Peter 2:7 clearly defines why people dislike Christians even Jesus said you will be persecuted for believing in me. The sinful desires of man is what is tearing people apart. Many people say the liberals are winning not the conservative christians. And you are right so this great country of America will continue to suffer many consequences due to these choices. But sooner or later the desires of man will not last. God's love is eternal and eventually people are going to feel empty because their desires relationships money the right Job will no longer be fulfilling. God's love brings fulfillment it lasts forever. I would rather have that truth to cling unto than none at all. Jesus called us to love one another as we love ourselves. Sinners are not to be hated because we all have fallen short of the glory of God. Instead the sin is to be hated because its not of God. That is why forgiveness and grace is so important. I think we all should remember that he is perfect in our weakness.
