Oh I think those people know it. It is what fuels their hate of any one that points out that very fact to them.<quoted text>
The fundies on here have no clue that they're nothing but grotesque caricatures of their own twisted bastardized version of Christianity. Ink included.
It is a shame too. As I suspect that many of them in IRl are good people. Just that some where along their path each found that continuing to question and searching for answers was to much. That what ever they knew at that moment was all each was going to know or care to know about faith.
Believing instead that if one were religiously and ideologically pure that the world would then be a better place.
Some may one day get past this insecurity and walk further down that path of faith. Sadly for some this is all they will have.
So yes when some one points out their hypocrisy and religious bigotry. It is not an attack on their beliefs precisely. It is pointing out both a weakness in their individual faiths and insecurity. Which is viewed in some ways as being attempt at invalidating their beliefs.
We all have seen that when push comes to shove each retreat behind their own hypocrisy and will not look further beyond it.
Does this mean as a person of faith ass I identify as being should treat them differently or with kid gloves.
The answer in my opinion is that does far more damage than good. I treat them as the fools they have willfully become. I hope that one day each will come to terms that being a person of faith does not mean being doctrinally pure. That faith, no matter the religion, is about experiencing Deity on a daily basis and living life at it fullest.
