Political parties don't differ anymore. They are the one percent.

Hate much? Jesus said the world would hate those who follow Him. Politics totally out of the picture, Christians would be hated and slandered by people like you anyway. Do some Christians adhere to your 10 commandments? I know of none. Every human being on this earth has some hypocrisy in them, however. It is sad how your hatred for people who seek to live a way of life that you reject, are completely judged by ones who know nothing of Christianity. Their are hundreds of millions of Christians on this earth, and you have perhaps met a handful of them in your life, who may not live by the words of Christ. That does not negate the teachings of Him. I once new a man who refused to accompany his family to the local church. When visited periodically by the preacher, the preacher one day asked,"Roy, why don't you come and join us and your family?" Roy replied,"to many hypocrites in your church." The pastor told him,"We have room for one more." Roy came down the next week and that pastor buried him many years later. Roy called out people's hypocrisy and tried, until he died many years later, to help others work the hypocrisy out of their lives. I don't mind your hatred and vitriol of Christians, because He died for all of my sins, including hypocrisy, and I will die a hypocrite in some parts of my life. You may die never having turned to Christ to ask for forgiveness of your sins. You will face the One who created you, whether you reject Him or turn to Him, at the Great Judgement.

Did we read the same post? Where do you get hate from this satirical post about the republican agenda. Lighten up dude! However, now that you mention it, you bring up several good points about Modern Christianity. Actually there is an interesting parallel to the targets of the OWS movement and Christians like yourself. The hypocrisy that you justify that has taken over the christian religion is very similar to the corruption on wall street. Both are driven by an elitist view that they can bend the rules the rest of us choose to live by. To then assume that this degree of selfishness is aligned with Jesus is ridiculous. That may be the source of your paranoid sense that people hate you.

I do not justify hypocrisy. It is an inevitable problem of the human condition. All people have some level of it, even if a tiny bit. I also never said or implied that selfishness of any level is aligned with Jesus. I have been told that I am part of the 99%, so why would a Christian,"like yourself" be a target of OWS? Or is yours a satirical post too?
