Stupid Christians & Morality

Many Christians, especially in the USA and particularly of the Evangelical breed, perform as cheerleaders for Israel. These Zionists zealots probably have a picture of Netanyahu hanging beside Christ at home. Stupid!? If stupidity were oil, they’d be part of OPEC.

It’s not these Christians I’m considering but normal church members including those who don’t attend very often, the solid citizens of our community. Many of these otherwise bright people, some of who are moral role models, house a belief that Christian morals are somehow exceptional.

Moral principles (ethics, concepts of right and wrong) make up part of Homo sapiens’ nature. Although the principles vary somewhat between nations and cultures, most of them belong to human universals and are common to all people whether living as hunters in a jungle or as urbanites of a metropolis.

Simple prejudice believes that people (nations or races) differ in moral standards. It’s nonsense and contrary to the idea that all people are equal in the eyes of God. Simple prejudice can be a minor offense mercifully pardoned in consideration of ignorance (= lack of knowledge). It’s not stupidity.

Stupidity is the selective blindness that inflicts all too many people, Christians included. History provides many and glaring examples that exclude Christians from any moral honors. The slaughter of Cathars, Huguenots, Sicilians, Mennonites, Irish, Armenians, and others as well as witches, Indians and “pagans” have left bloody pools along the roads of history. The 100-years War, the 30-years War, the World Wars, the Vietnam War and many other wars have been Christian enterprises. Inquisitors, slave-traders, KuKluxKlaners, mafia, Nazis, Fascists, dictators, serial killers, pedophiles, rapists and flocks of corrupt politicians have been (and are) Christians.

Christians are not alone in engaging in immoral activities, and they are not a particularly bad or evil people. Claiming however to be morally better than any other people spits in the face of reality. It’s the we-are-different/special/superior/chosen type of racism.
It’s stupid!

Three points to contemplate:
1. Academic research has shown that the correlation between religion and character is weak to non-existent.
2. No Christian moral expresses anything not covered in the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
3. A child whose head has been crushed under the rubble of its bombed home has no possibility of turning the other cheek.


“Stupidity comes in all shapes and sizes
and can fit a pimp, prude, priest, prince or president.”
