The American Christian and Their High Horse.
I have noticed a trend in Christians, on hubpages and in public of late. Their "holier than thou" attitudes for one. They are the first people you see, claiming to be against the hate and death that 3% of Islam causes, by making all Muslims pay this debt. They are the same people that are the first ones to damn you for breathing if you are Muslim, and claim they understand because they have Muslim "friends". Saying high to the Arab man at your local gas station in the morning hardly constitutes having a friend guys. These are the people who yell to the world to follow Jesus and be like me, while they foaming with hate and discontent for you. They are the people who claim to understand Islam, then say they don't have to try to understand anything, except that they are Christian and you are not , so they don't have to show that love to you.
I find these people every where now. On hubpages they love for you to tell them they truth, they thank you by deleting your comments and saying you hate the US. These are the people that say, oh I know not all Muslims are bad, and I know it is not there fault the towers were attacked, but I know that they are going to pay for the mistakes of others. Most of these "holier than thou's" seem to forget how Christianity became such a popular religion. Unlike Islam, Christianity was spread by the sword and with the blood shed of billions. But let a couple wackos that claim to be in another religion and they are the devil on earth, every last one of them. But its okay, we Christians killed people in the past, no not any more. Well yeah, those Christians that still kill people today, they are crazy, they are not with us. Oh, but all Muslims are together the crazies and the sane ones they are all in cahoots. Well because I am afraid of them because I know nothing about Islam and I am too lazy to learn, because the T.V should tell me.
These are the same people who claim to know the media is corrupt except when it says something they agree with. They are the same people who when presented with the truth about this Ground Zero mosque they still deny the facts. They are the people who believe you can kill millions as long as you do it in the right name. You all know who you are, no one needs tell you, and don't look over your shoulder its you, there is no one standing behind you. That is you one the horse, and that is your image of Jesus on the bomb not the real Jesus.
Really people stop and think for a second, really. Okay, say your country is run by a dictator, bad dude needs to go, say his name is Hussein. And you are a normal guy, just trying to live the best way you know how. Provide for your wife and 3 children the best way you can. Then a great thing happens, here comes a powerful country gonna save us and show us the promised land because their President Prayed to Jesus and God and that is what They said do. Oh, whats that? There is a price to pay first, oh okay sounds worth it. Oh, wait that price is my wife and 3 kids, and my house. Hmm, sure thats worth it. Right.
And you can sit there honestly surprised that these people are upset with us. There is no doubt in anyones mind Saddam needed to go. 600,000 more Iraqis were killed by the U.S than Saddam, that is not the total, that is how many more we killed than Saddam, and you are actually surprised these people can't stand us. Come on. Some one comes and kills your family you will spit venom at them tell the day you die, and curse them more in death, and you know its the truth. And regardless what you might want to think, Bush the leader of this war said he did it at the behest of God and Jesus, so it was a religious war. Think of all his Jesus speeches.
total death toll in Iraq, "Estimates put the toll at between 100,000 and one million, and now a bitter war of numbers is raging"
Come on between 100 thousand and 1 million, lol talk about denial, that is way to huge of a gap to even be remotely close to true. The number by many sources is way closer to 1 million that 1 hundred thousand.
Be realistic, people the US, is a great country, but our government is just as F'ed as any other country, same with out media, culture, and most of our people. The US has the highest crime rate in the WORLD. We have the highest abortion rate in the WORLD. We claim home to the highest divorce rate in the WORLD. Our government unlawfully tested and sold drugs on US citizens to fund wars against drugs. Yeah we are a great example to set to the world. Our leaders and role models get busted for sex and drug crime almost every day it seems. But its okay for us to do, what have a high horse and we claim to follow Jesus, though secretly we do everything we can not to live the life he teaches us. Don't bother pointing that out to the "holier than thou's" they just label you and enemy of the state and delete your posts.
Those that know me, know I love this country, but they also know I am not afraid to admit to the bad and wrong I see here. I am not afraid to say, no we are not all that great. Surly not good enough to go around telling the rest of the people how to live.
Yes folks these are the same people who say, "we just want to see Muslims stand up to the terrorist." But the source they use to find that are the same ones that trash Muslims almost hourly. When you show them where to look, they either A) don't look and don't care or B) they don't believe it because it is not on the major media networks, those same people claim lie all the time. If you bash Islam and Muslims for lies you are a great American, but if you tell the honest to God truth about America and its acts, you are "bashing" America and you hate this country. Many will say I hate the US because of this Hub, that couldn't be farther from the truth. I love this country with all my heart, I am just ashamed of many of its citizens and the direction it is going in.
You know these people I am talking about. They claim to follow Jesus with all their heart, and spit in the face of his teachings every time they even think the words Muslim or Islam. They refuse to admit this, and don't bother trying to talk to them about it, they will just label you a Jesus hater and America hater. Our Country was founded on noble great intentions, but anyone that can not see we have strayed so far from that is blind. They claim this is a country where every is suppose to get along no matter your religion, but these are the same people you hear screaming about a mosque that doesn't never will and never was going to exist. They are the people that hate all Muslim for the acts of the few, though they few Christians that do bad, and nuts and not related to them. Only Christianity can claim to have evil cults that do things in their name and can disown them. Only Christians are allowed to build new churches. Here in my home town they are protesting our new Mosque, some 1700 miles from Ground Zero, I guess that is too close too. If they had their way we would all die, but they tell us they have Muslim friends, and they understand Islam. They are the same people that quote scripture like its going out of style, quote back to them and all the sudden you are the enemy of God, and you do not understand the bible.
They Love, but hate, they understand but fear, they respect, but spit in your face. As long as they can live by the do as I say not as I do rule, they live long happy lives. Just don't you try it, Or they will damn you to Hell. Good luck my fellow non-Christian Americans, we need it.
Yet with big tall horse and though they are "holier than thou" they act surprised that Christianity in the US is dieing, Judaism is Dieing, yet Islam is the only religion with an upward trend in the US for 20 years now, yes 2 whole decades, and the majority of those numbers come from the last 9 years, WOW, but that on your high horse with you.
For the blind fools who say Islam does not speak out about terrorist, here I did your work for you.
Here is a good example of Muslims speaking out against Radical Islam. See they are just as much an enemy to us.
Wake up step down from your high horse, and join the rest of the world, maybe then you can actually help bring peace to the world instead of claiming you do, and still harboring so much hate for Innocent people. Unless you are unfortunate like this person on their high horse and your ladder already fell.
