I'm not one of those....

I'm Not One Of Those 'Love Thy Neighbor' Christians

Everybody has this image of "crazy Christians" based on what they hear in the media, but it's just not true. Most Christians are normal, decent folks. We don't all blindly follow a bunch of outdated biblical tenets or go all fanatical about every bit of dogma. What I'm trying to say is, don't let the actions of a vocal few color your perceptions about what the majority of us are like.

Like me. I may be a Christian, but it's not like I'm one of those wacko "love your neighbor as yourself " types.

God forbid!

I'm here to tell you there are lots of Christians who aren't anything like the preconceived notions you may have.

Inspired, and so like many Christians I know. Sadly, some will read it and not see the irony.

Snort! I saw that and laughed my head off.

As DP says, there are however those who will not see that it is... oh God help us all.

Thanks for the award Leonardo. You are really too kind.

Doorman - sadly you are absolutely correct.
