Dont tar ALL Christian with the same brush stroke

People can be seen and heard to comment “Don’t tar all Christian with the same brush stroke”

Few people do though?

I doubt there are even that many atheist ,who’d bother with tarring all Christian with the same brush stroke either. It  makes little sense to do so?

The way i see it, the Christian movement, generally speaking could be described like this

  1. There are a “portion” of Christian groups, themselves, whom are actively involved in directly causing harm
  2. There is another extra large portion of Christendom , who although not directly involved in causing the same direct-harm themselves to any people, are instead just actively involved in happily silently standing by and saying nothing and are busily turning a blind eye to amount of harm that other Christian groups are directly-involved in causing to people themselves. Which then in effect, is  also “piling harm on” and compounding causing even way more harm too, in the long run ,than what the original Christian groups involved in causing harm-directly are even physically able to even be able to cause to people themselves, first-off in the first place (IE: indiffernt Christian act like “bed-partners-in-crime” of harm caused,  which then = in-direct element of harm being also caused, and ” compounded on top of ” the original element of harm,and in turn then in effect making matters “snow-ball” and have need to have become “even way way more worse” than what it originally were before first-off originally beforehand )
  3. Then there is a very extremely minute little wee wee absolutely wee smallportion” of Christendom too, who might in fact actually care-enough, so as to choose to actually take action themselves, and begin to act against the harm caused (a portion that’s sadly still so utterly small in fact  that in “reality” they might “just as well” not even actually exist at all, anyways. IE portion remaining so small, in effect its still hardly even worthwhile us even bothering with even mentioning anything much about it either. There is so little “action”, going on here ,for any one of  us to bother to stop and to “report-about”. Bugger all. Zilch. Nada. As that’s just “reality” of how utterly shocking the sad sorry state of affairs, is been “allowed” to have become like)

So that there, so far, is three separate brush strokes

Not one brush stroke ?

Is it

Most atheist would see the situation in this similar way. Atheist are not stupid. Atheist understand that not every Christian group, are all involved in acting exactly the same manner.

This is common sense

And yet, this still does little to say that Christian movement, is either in fact benign .Or not perhaps causing more harm than good, generally speaking

Lets in stead, consider racism issue (now as another test-case scenario that can also be approached similar)

People could say the same thing. They could claim, “hey don’t bother to tar every person, with same the brush, as all being a racialist persons”

Very true . Fair call !

They would be right to say this too. Because, we shouldn’t just tar all people with the same brush stroke with regard of racism-issue either . Should we ?

But wait hold on

The truth is people don’t?.Do they. They don’t bother to.There is no good reason they’d need to bother to try?. Because ,obviously the same thing will again apply here too, in regard of issue of racism again as well

Like

1 We’ll have a portion of people (less amount of people usually) whom are blatantly actively directly acting as racists themselves

2 Then there will be another larger portion of people (more often the most largest group of people of all too. Sadly so) who wont be racists themselves, “as such”, but who will instead quite happily just act-indifferently toward suffering of other people,and so as such, will simply choose to become one of many others who will all be  turning a blind eye to the racistactions that’s being taken by other-racist people

3 then there will be another portion of people, who’ll choose to be actively outspoken against acts of racism (but too often , a real real small minute group,once again too)

Once again, three brush strokes that people are tarred with here again too

Right?

And so on. Same situation also apply to sexism too, or other social issues as well

We don’t tar all Christian with the same brush

Do we ? . Who is doing that?

Hardly anyone ever does.

It isn’t happening. So don’t fool yourselves in thinking it might happen.

Yet this fact still says little about, judgement of  how good or bad the Christian movement is ,”generally speaking”

I suggest, that generally speaking , overall ,the Christian movement is been acting extremely irresponsibly

And disgracefully so too

There now, i’m now involved in tarring the Christian movement “generally” with something a little “more-like” one single brush stroke 

Rightfully so too

Yet this still doesn’t change the fact, that we still acknowledge how Christian do in fact still act in different ways

Even so

Generally speaking, overall the whole Christian movement have been acting rather extremely irresponsibly 

Shamefully so

Bar for one wee small group of them, who’d perhaps careenough“to bother to act against, the harmful act that religious-abuse causes to certain amount of people (this group is so minutely small, that in effect, nobody will hardly even hear or see anything of them ever )

That’s how disgracefully small these “real” Christian are.They only manage to make up a wee minutely small slither of the whole movement know as Christian

So minutely small .. They might just as well not exist

That’s how utterly disgraceful this sad sorry situation really is

No way will we tar everyone with the same brush

No way

For we know far better than to bother to do that.

We have no need to bother?

Lets be quite clear about this. There are a number of groups of Christians within the Christian movement (making up the one loaf)

1. groups of abusers

2. an even larger group of people, more than happy to act in indifference , in regard of pain that’s being constantly caused unto others (IE: all the ones who really don’t care to give a damn)

3 .and then there’s a very minutely small group, who act so as to show how they actually do care (IE: will walk the walk and not just talk the talk )

Put together, they’d all help to make up, a whole different kettle of fish

Christians would do best to get over their idea, that Christians are all being tarred by the same brush stroke

The Christian are not being tarred with the one brush stroke

It isn’t happening

So get over it .Quit with stalling . Get on with what really need to be addressed here . El-Pronto


Time that they’d stop looking for excuses

About ExEB

I'm a agnostic/atheist . Interested in learning more about science. I also am an "ex-member" of a group most publicly known within modern times, as the Exclusive Brethren. Whom are an off-shoot of the original Plymouth Brethren group. I'd say it likely my personality could possibly be described as quirky.You know ,as in being , unconventional , unorthodox , unusual, off-centre, strange, bizarre, weird, peculiar, odd, freakish, outlandish, offbeat, out of the ordinary, bohemian, alternative, zany I'm sure iv'e been classed as "crazy" . Many times But then, being born into a group like the exclusive brethren. Doesn't lend itself ? to tend to produce things considered as being "very normal" .Does it I escaped the Exclusive Brethren cult as a 15 year old teenager. Even since that time iv'e been trying to adjust to living life outside the cult. With much of my life being lived within the genre of "wild colonial boy" style. In the general sense of a church-rebel picking and choosing from role models who appeared within-life along the way. But as the exclusive brethren cult had traditionally maintained a general church-rule , of need to shun and totally excommunicate any ex member of their group.Treating such people as if they were dead. Thus this situation developed more to do with my need of following traditionally enforced church-rule , as apposed to it being so much about "life-choices". Certain emotional experiences, and parts of life in general, have led to me adopting a sense of low self esteem. Which is a situation i still deal with from time to time. Through my ongoing interest in science. I find i am able to gather more information to help me better understand my situation. Much about life for me, has often seemed like a massive puzzle.With many missing pieces.
