The New PhariseesPosted: December 12, 2007
I managed to stumble across this on a typically very atheistic website.
The blog post is about a painting someone did with Jesus washing the feet of all sorts of (in)famous people such as GW Bush and Osama Bin Laden. The blogger is commenting about the immense backlash from the “Christian” community about it.
There is a sample comment on there that sums it up: “Sorry, I aint that kind of Christian. My Jesus would use nunchucks on Osama bin Laden. Or maybe rip his still beating heart out, Temple of Doom style.”
My gut reaction was that our American Christianity is now just a new form of Phariseeism.. and it’s pretty scary.
