Sticks and stones may break my bones,
But Jesus never hurt me.
So save your accusations.
There are no ‘harmful consequences’ of the Christian faith.
You can stop crusading against the evils of Christianity.
There aren’t any.
Go slay some windmills instead.
Your gay friends have never been “wounded by the church”.
Baptists don’t toss homosexuals off the roof of their building.
Catholics don’t drag gay people around the parking lot.
Some Christian sects ordain gay ministers.
But not ALL Christians ordain gay ministers.
That’s called ‘disagreement’.
It’s not ‘harmful’ or ‘hateful’.
The belief that homosexuality is a sin doesn’t actually hurt homosexuals.
The belief that gender is determined by biology doesn’t actually hurt transexuals.
The belief that the President is despicable doesn’t actually hurt Donald Trump.
The belief that abortion is murder doesn’t actually hurt women.
(Abortion DOES hurt babies though…FYI.)
The Gospel of Jesus Christ does no harm.
In fact, Christian theology REDUCES harm and suffering.
Because Jesus is good, anyone following his commandments will do good by default.
“Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit. You brood of vipers! How can you speak good, when you are evil? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. The good person out of his good treasure brings forth good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure brings forth evil.” – Matthew 12:33
