It never ceases to amaze me how Christians claim to read and follow the bible, yet are selective in the help they extend to others and the love that they express toward others. I’m pretty sure there aren’t any asterisks in the bible that express limitations of any kind on the 10 commandments. I’m fairly confident that Jesus never said, “Do this, but….” Christians pick and choose what to follow. Now I know for a fact that not all Christians are like this. One of my nearest and dearest friends is a Christian who struggles against the hateful rhetoric everyday. But her voice is small in the onslaught of hate.
Sometimes it feels like the planet just keeps getting more and more evil, and this time we’re seriously shaking our heads. So here’s what happened: a Chicago school canceled a haunted house depicting the Pulse shooting. Naturally, the first thought in our heads is like, WHY was this ever going to happen? Yep, that’s right. The “Christian” haunted house depicting the Pulse shooting was supposed to be scary, but nothing about that is just, like, normal level scary. It’s straight up messed up.
