    Default Stop teaching morons that Christianity has a monopoly on virtue

    This Marjorie Taylor Greene meltdown reveals an uncomfortable truth about Christianity (msn.com)

    “You should practice the basic thing you're taught in church: respect your neighbor,” Dingell shouted. Greene blasted back, “Taught in church, are you kidding me? Try being a Christian and supporting life!" Dingell responded, “You try being a Christian... and try treating your colleagues decently!”
    Dingell thinks being a Christian means being neighborly and civil. Greene thinks being a Christian means attacking anyone who supports abortion rights. But they both agree that being a Christian is morally good, and that Christianity is virtuous.

    No doubt in Greene's case. But can she really be blamed? The bible condones stonings, human sacrifice and says nothing about the rights of the unborn.

    They both seem to be claiming the mantle of Christianity, oblivious that in so doing 1/3 of the population is excluded from their morality pissing match.

    And for that we are grateful. They do represent the voters who elected them. We can assume that most of them agree with the crazy shit Greene espouses, at least. As for respect, Dingell is right but that ship sank long ago, torpedoed by the ex-Sleaze-in-Chief.

    Sunday Morning Coming Down

    On a Sunday morning sidewalk I'm wishing Lord that I was stoned
    Cause there's something in a Sunday makes a body feel alone
    And there's nothing sure to dying half as lonesome as the sound
    On a sleepy city sidewalk Sunday morning coming down

    Well I woke up Sunday morning with no way to hold my head that didn't hurt
    And the beer I had for breakfast wasn't bad so I had one more for desert
    Then I fumbled through my closet for my clothes and found my cleanest dirty shirt
    And I shaved my face and combed my hair
    And stumbled down the stair to meet the day
    I'd smoke my brain the night before with cigarettes and songs I'd been a picking
    But I lit my first and watched the small kid cussin' at a can that he was kicking
    Then I crossed the empty street and caught
    The Sunday smell of someone fryin' chicken
    And it took me back to something that I'd lost somewhere somehow along the way
    On a Sunday morning sidewalk

    In the park I saw a daddy with the laughing little girl that he was swinging
    And I stopped beside a Sunday school and listened to the songs they were singing
    Then I headed back for home and somewhere far away a lonely bell was ringing
    And it echoed through the canyons like the disappearing dreams of yesterday
    On a Sunday morning sidewalk
    Coming down coming down coming down coming down

    At some point being called a Christian will be seen as an insult.

    Christianity is a dead religion. Nothing good in it.

    Christianity is out of date.

    There's nothing new in the concept. It was created thousands of years ago when abortion didn't exist.

    Trying to fit Christianity into today's world is the problem. It is so old news.

    Science continues to provide new answers. Christianity is stuck in the past, a time of lack of answers. Christianity used imagination to try to provide answers which are now being provided by science.

    The Earth was not created by a being. Humans evolved from other species. There is no more spirituality to humans than any other life form. There is no afterlife.

    obviously Christianity has no monopoly on virtue.....equally obvious, Dingell doesn't even have the pocket change of virtue.......

    like the opening poster, Dingell is only concerned with deciding whether other people qualify to be considered "Christians"......

    She's one of those fake politicized Christians that think they can get away with appeasing their God by telling others what to do. When it comes time for their own behaviors they are barren of Christian spirit and seethe hypocrisy.
