I admittedly and proudly get all of my news from comedians. They're the only people telling the truth as far as I'm concerned. But that's not the point. The point is all this hoopla about Christians, Christianity, and Christmas. Here goes something I think:
If the popular
representation of Christianity weren't so extremely white, blond, blue
eyed, racist and delusional, majority culture would take
what was said more seriously. Everyone speaking on behalf of
Christianity in popular media look to the rest of us like the kind of
people you want to generally avoid in daily life...you know, those
people...when they start talking you suddenly remember that you have
somewhere else to be, something else to do, or in desperate scenarios,
you'll just go on a rant about the bonfire of aborted fetuses and Bibles
that you and your family danced and sang around last night just before
having sex with each other.
It seems that because of racism,
homophobia, and overall closed-mindedness, Christianity is looking very
one dimensional and completely insane to the majority of Americans.
Though I am no longer a Christian for all intents and purposes, I am
absolutely respectful of the religion and practice as a way to find
balance in one's life...or salvation from sins...whatever rhetoric you
need to use to get into heaven. However, for the sake of all Christians
in America who don't necessarily want to be perceived as brainwashed
delusional lunatics, Fox News, I plead to you:
SHUT THE FUCK UP! Your audience is getting smaller and crazier...and it shows.
