Elizabeth Scalia says: This is actually in line with something I'm thinking about re this week's Glee episode. Some Catholics swooned about the "Eucharistic" moment when the kid ate the burned grilled cheese sandwich that had an image of Christ on it. I did not. The audience, which just got preached to (full face to camera) about how Christians are "anti-gay, anti-women, anti-science" and "cruel"...Sounds like the usual Hollywood anti-Christian propaganda to me -- and this is where the impressionable get their beliefs and values from.
Christians are not anti-gay. They are anti-sin. And they are anti-destructive-behaviors that shorten lives, cause misery and will ultimately destroy a person. I call that love. They are not anti-women. Christianity has done more to elevate the status of women than any other religion or ideology in history. They are not anti-science -- Christianity is the womb in which modern science developed. They are anti-bad-science, and they are against metaphysics-mascarading-as-science. They call metaphysical darwinists on their bluff. They are not cruel. I suspect that by cruel the speaker means saying things that hurt other people's feelings. Speaking the truth in love is not cruel. Dismembering an innocent fetus is cruel -- and Christians are the only group that speaks up against this wickedness. Advocating the destruction of the weak and imbecilic under eugenics was cruel -- and evangelical Christians and Catholics were the only groups who denounced this practice. Affirming a person in a false, destructive sexual identity is cruel. Indoctrinating kids to believe they are the products of a mindless, uncaring, unintelligent universe is cruel. Denying persons access to the One who is the way, the truth, and the life is cruel.
I wonder how they portray Islam and Muslims -- noble followers of the religion of peace?
