Lying for Jesus on Facebook


Here’s a story I’m sure we’ve all heard. It’s obviously invented from whole cloth, but watch it anyway.

This was posted on a Facebook cause asking for support for putting Christ back into schools (as though it had any place outside of Sunday school to begin with). Julie at RationalBehavior commented about it, and a conversation ensued where one of her grade-school friends espoused her belief that religion should totally take over schools and teach Christianity to the exclusion of both science and all other religions, thus thoroughly violating the Establishment Clause.

She even posted more lunacy from the same culprit. It’s like watching a car crash in slow motion. And it’s almost enough to make me want to reopen my Facebook account.

    I’m sure some relatives and old friends of mine on FaceBook have simply stopped reading anything I link to, etc. I tend not to say a whole lot there in the first place. I can be civil and reserved when in certain company (certain people who have enough of my respect that I choose not to offend them overtly).

    Wow. What a load of crap. “Everyone wants to go to Heaven.” Right. “Funny how when you send a joke through e-mail, thousands of people just pass it along without thinking. But send the message of Jesus, people think twice.”

    Not. Even. Close. They not only miss the target, they don’t even have in arrow in the bow. It’s lame, patronizing and written by idiots for idiots.

    If you do open up the Facebook account, make sure you be-friend me ;-)

    Thanks again for posting my blog link, I really appreciate it. I love your blog, it’s always in my rss feeds, and it’s one of the ones I actually do read every day! :-)

    Bad: My cousing just posted the “This Should Keep Us All Thinking” video on his Facebook page. Worse: He’s serious. I feel so ashamed.
