It's just a real simple principle.

You can't drink Starbucks and be biblically right on this thing.

I say the same thing about Red Lobster. You can't eat at Red Lobster and be Biblically right!

Expand the criteria to include companies that provide domestic partner benefits and other employment equality, and these nuts will be reduced to foraging for grubs.

The problem is the "loud" Evangelicals (involved with the GOP), those that shout above all others to get their point across. I am always reminded of the phrase "doth protest too much, methinks", as in why are they making such a huge deal about their point?

Perfect example is Ted Haggard.  The uber-Christian, anti-homosexual pastor of a mega church ends up being exactly what he hates.

Most of us Evangelicals (who are GOP supporters) aren't like the loud-mouths like the pastor in this story (and, for the record, I'm in Alabama, just like he is).  Jesus said "love your neighbor", not your straight neighbor, or your white neighbor, or your Republican neighbor.  The rule was very simple. Love your neighbor.

Our problem here is that we have these so called "Christians" who do everything in their power to push people away.  Excuse me?  I'm not a theology major, but I think you're doing it wrong.  There's was a Christian alternative rock group called DC Talk.  They had a song called "What if I Stumble?"  The first verse of the song is:

"The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today
Is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips
Then walk out the door and deny him by their lifestyle.
That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable."

The good pastor in Huntsville needs to perhaps heed those words.

Because he's making the rest of us believers look really, really bad.

It is your community's responsibility to weed these people out and shove them to the back. None of the groups I associate myself with have the problem of an insane minority speaking for a silent, supposedly totally different majority. Does it happen? Sure. Here we have The Huffington Post cherry picking some nobody preacher that nobody has ever heard of before because a Starbucks argument is silly and it draws attention to the website. No group should be held accountable for someone so stupid. The problem facing evangelicals and the GOP is that there are so many stupid people with a megaphone that it is becoming easier and easier for the rest of us to forget that reasonable evangelical Christians exist.

Well I agree with him but for completely different reasons. Wasting money on something like Starbucks when it would be better spent in just about any other way isn't acting like a good Christian.
 
2013-06-07 03:33:15 PM  
To be fair, Starbucks is terrible, overpriced coffee and it's only bought by people with more money than brains.

Yeah, maybe you should convince the lunatics of your religion to call themselves tea-tians or something.

But then again, any 10 minutes on facebook, you'll probably find a lot of "normal" Christians biatching about how they're persecuted.  Should probably talk to those folks as well.

While I agree with the sentiment and your statement, the song is somewhat insulting to atheists as it implies our spiritual beliefs are based on spite.

I'm sorry, but that ship has not only sailed on you guys, it's over the horizon and well on its way toward steaming off the edge of the Earth.

The whole "isolated incident" schtick wears off on the fifth or sixth incident in short succession. Especially when so many of these people that are supposedly so isolated are getting rich off the nonsense they preach. Somebody has to be listening to and supporting these nutjobs or they'd just crackpots sitting under a bare bulb writing angry letters that nobody ever reads.

No, at best your entire collective is tacitly responsible for this by not responding them, more likely a significant portion of you actively, if quietly, support people like Barton. Somebody has to be buying the books. Somebody is tuning in when they go on radio and TV. Somebody listened to the sermons. Somebody is making them profitable for the things they say.

You can't just write them off as isolated whackjobs when they have enough internal support to become major political and celebrity figureheads.

At first I was thinking actual Christianity so I was expecting the reason to be something like exploitation of workers or slave labor to grow coffee.  Then I saw it was just derp.

"If you have in your bloodline any animus, any Native American blood, for instance -- not all Native Americans worshiped the serpent or crocodile, many did - but you might want to renounce that and repent for the generational iniquity," Jacobs says. "If you are -- perhaps you're Mexican and you might have indigenous blood in you or Mayan blood -- those who have Aztec blood in any way, you need to repent for the sin of animism before you begin to deal with this spirit."

Someone doesn't know what "animus" means... Can't say I'm surprised that an evangelical is this illiterate.

As for a legit rebuke to his argument... but it's ok to buy cheap coffee from the grocery store that's produced with near slave labor, right?

"I have the right to do anything," you say-but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"-but not everything is constructive. No one should seek their own good, but the good of others.
Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience,for, "The earth is the Lord's, and everything in it."
If an unbeliever invites you to a meal and you want to go, eat whatever is put before you without raising questions of conscience. But if someone says to you, "This has been offered in sacrifice," then do not eat it, both for the sake of the one who told you and for the sake of conscience. I am referring to the other person's conscience, not yours. For why is my freedom being judged by another's conscience? If I take part in the meal with thankfulness, why am I denounced because of something I thank God for?
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Do not cause anyone to stumble, whether Jews, Greeks or the church of God- even as I try to please everyone in every way. For I am not seeking my own good but the good of many, so that they may be saved.

1 Corinthians 10:23-31

Ironically, his entire argument is based on animus.
