What is the correlation between authoritarianism & extreme forms of prejudice?
Christianity is a f***ed up religion.
Despite the fact the bible said (Psalm 11:7) For the Lord is righteous; he loves righteous deeds; the upright shall behold his face.
The Bible teaches
(1 John 4:1-3)Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.
(Deuteronomy 13:6-10) “If your brother, the son of your mother, or your son or your daughter or the wife you embrace or your friend who is as your own soul entices you secretly, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which neither you nor your fathers have known, some of the gods of the peoples who are around you, whether near you or far off from you, from the one end of the earth to the other, you shall not yield to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him, nor shall you conceal him. But you shall kill him. Your hand shall be first against him to put him to death, and afterward the hand of all the people. You shall stone him to death with stones, because he sought to draw you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
(Deuteronomy 17:2-5) “If there is found among you, within any of your towns that the Lord your God is giving you, a man or woman who does what is evil in the sight of the Lord your God, in transgressing his covenant, and has gone and served other gods and worshiped them, or the sun or the moon or any of the host of heaven, which I have forbidden, and it is told you and you hear of it, then you shall inquire diligently, and if it is true and certain that such an abomination has been done in Israel, then you shall bring out to your gates that man or woman who has done this evil thing, and you shall stone that man or woman to death with stones.
There are more f***ed up phrases like this in Christianity.
Most westerners that moved to Asia, eventually leave Christianity or become selective Christians. Selective Christians say "Christianity isn't perfect, so we only pick its positive aspect to follow", But you can't be a real Christian and a Selective Christian in the same time so, it would be better if Christianity don't even exist.
Authoritarian systems require control over many facets of life. Creating a strongly hated "other" provides a reason for the control and loyalty to the group protecting the people from them.
This isn't just Christianity or the US. North Korea blames South Korea and America while oppressing and starving its people.
And this problem goes back centuries. Islam blames Jews (mostly) and Christians for its poverty and lack of first class status, to the point many of its young people regularly kill non-Muslims and secular Muslims around the globe. This isn't new - that's how Islam spread over 1400 years. But today, they gladly use the West's technology of cell phones and the internet while killing people who don't submit to 7th century ideology, including sex slavery.
