Have you actually studied your religion?

You know, I once had a conversation with someone convinced that Christ was "Christian". No matter WHAT I said, this person was adamant that Jesus Christ fllowed the teachings of that great man, ummm... Jesus Christ. Because Christianity was the oldest religion on Earth, don't ya know. I thought that ignorance was the ultimate in bliss.

I was wrong.

Via LabRat at Atomic Nerds, get this clip:

My gawds... how does this woman come up with this?I assume she's a Christian herself: did she NOT study her Bible any better than an irritated Satanist with an agenda?

This is the problem with WAY to many "religious folks": they don't actually study what they're claiming to practice.

Here's a newsflash for anyone that didn't know: Jesus was a Jew living in the Mid East many centuries after the Greeks had their heyday. Yes, he was a Jew: in fact, he was a Rabbi. And there was a LOT of history that predated his birth (hence the whole "BC" thing).

I'm frelling WICCAN, and I know these things. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?

What you fail to grasp is that the vast majority of humankind are sheep.

The believe what they are told they believe. She thinks she is a Christian because her parents told her so...not because of any particular knowledge about the faith in question.

It's ok Strings...We know you're Wiccan, and we like you anyway...

I wouldn't expect much from "the view", but wow. How do people like that make t through any part of modern life? I mean, isn't there a "too stupid to function in society" stamp we can put on people like this?

Yup, yup...the sheep mentality strikes yet again.

What amazes most people about those of us who are Pagan is that most of the time we can talk circles around them about many religions since most of us searched the world's religions to find out who we are. Yet, all they can see is that we *aren't* Christian.
