Why did Jesus choose to refer to people who have differing opinions from his as dogs and swine?


Dogs and Swine? Really? Why does a person of such reverence as Jesus have to resort to such petty and divisive tactics as this? Just as in Psalms 14:1, why do divine sacred beings need to resort to such offensive and dishonest slander? And why is there a premium given to those who abdicate their minds in lieu of common sense and logic? Is this bullying? Are Christians who accept and follow this offensive language just flunkies, following a perceived powerful bully, who they dare not confront? This just seems like a vicious bully that gets his way through fear, intimidation, and coercion.

    Did not Jesus say that after you have removed the log from your own eye, you will see clearly enough to remove the speck from the eye of your neighbor?

    Do u know Satan, or did u get all your info from a bias God, who apparently vilifies his opponents? And why do u think its ok to bully other people just because they are supporters of someone who has a different view than your own? Guess I'm a dog :(

    So just because someone is in league with Satan that makes it ok to verbally abuse them, and think of them as sub-human, huh?! And u have never even met anyone called Satan. U hate a character in a book. Do u see how dangerous your beliefs are?
