I'm driving home from work and I see a sign for "Little Lambs Sunday School" in front of a nice big baptist church.
They refer to themselves as sheep! I mean, come on! Sheep? Really? And none of them clue in on the fact that sheep are a source of income and sustenance for the shepherd? Who willingly identifies with a weak, skittish animal? Isn't the best thing about a sheep the fact that it can be used without being slaughtered? Sheep are also slaughtered, of course.
Maybe I only react this way because I am outside looking in (having never been in) and flock sounds nicer than herd or something. I doubt it.
And they have the nerve to guffaw at the idea of our shared ancestry with apes.
I just had to get this off my chest. I'm sure there are others with equally strong feelings about other christian qualities; let's hear them! Sound off you non-believers about the ONE thing that tops them all.
Do I have to choose just one thing??
Just to name a few.
Definitely the use of biblical glasses for looking at the world. If it doesn't fit with the bible, or any other religion, then it isn't true.
Oh, and also, the constant use of end world arguments. Telling people the world is going to end soon because god is coming down ( from where?) is so overflowing with stupid that it is as worse as.....
Nope can't think of any worse.
ONE thing? Impossible, like Steph said, there are too many.
Your sheep school reminds me of a church near my house with a big sign that says "Babies In Need"
We always laugh that if we ever need a needy baby we know where to get one.1 of many pet peeves = "he died for our sins." It's like the mafia. Bizarre.
