I wanted to jump in as I’m a theology nerd and don’t get to talk about the mix between religion and politics as much as I want to. Also, it’s really difficult to talk about with anyone, as the anxieties in our country right now are just sky-high on all sides. But you’ve come here to vent, and I want to honor that!
It sounds like growing up that you were instilled with some great beliefs, and that you had some idea of what Christian people were supposed to be. Then, you began to meet them and see what they’re like and now you’re very confused, as they seem like some of the most hate-filled hypocritical people you could imagine! Religious circles seem to have a real special brand of crazy. Add to that your experience with Judaism, and you feel as if there almost isn’t anywhere you could justify their actions.
You feel disgusted by “religious” “evangelical” people, does that describe where you’re at?
