More Christian Tolerance

I love how Christians fail to see the hypocrisy in issuing bleating objections to any criticism of their religion, then turn around and attack, on religious grounds, other Christians they disagree with. Such as this guy does.

I'm sure Mr. Massie would bristle at being told that Christians are simply "being true to their murdering, pillaging, Crusading selves" by going into Iraq to impose Christian values upon the Muslims while stealing their oil. But Massie has no trouble writing, "He [Senator Reid] is simply being true to his inbred familial heritage [Mormon heritage]." Massie then quotes a bunch of 19th-century Mormon leaders as if those statements represent today's Mormon church. I'm sure he would quickly dismiss characterizations of Christianity based on quotes from the 19th-century or earlier, such as the famous, "Kill them all. God will know his own," and any number of quotes I could dig up from Southern Christian leaders before and after the Civil War.

It wouldn't be so easy to point out instances of Christian hypocrisy if Christians weren't so bold and forthright about it. Really, they should at least try to cover it up, don't you think? Like how Christians say atheists are blind not to see that the New Testament is God's word, but then say that Mormons are spawns of Satan when the Mormons claim that other Christians are blind when they fail to see that the Book of Mormon is God's word too.
