“There has been a great sucking sound coming from some people who say they are Christians. The sound is that of their brains being sucked out of their heads and then being replaced with the hot air of illogical rhetoric,” says Don Koenig in his rant against Christian patriots in America.
In Georgia these guys are called the People’s Orthodox-Christian Movement, and they make the same sound.
When Jesus said: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you,” we know he really meant, “hate your enemies, curse those that curse you, beat those that don’t agree with you, and persecute those that your paranoid gray matter believes to be persecuting you.”
Several days ago, a gang of these Christians, along with some opposition political lackeys, protested against some threats to Georgian Christianity and the cult of virginity at the university, which provoked a counter rally the next day. The next thing the Christians began calling everybody “fags.”. Giorgi Lomsadze explains the situation well in his Eurasinet story.
I was talking with a seminarian about the screwy notion of Christianity I have come across, where people believe they are members of an exclusive club because Georgia was the 2nd nation to adopt Christianity as a state religion. Being Georgian is being Christian. There’s little more to the equation. He acknowledged the same observation and said that this is precisely why Georgia bears a greater responsibility to provide a Christian example to the world. There’s more to Christianity than being Georgian and remembering to cross yourself every time you see a church.
