Baptists who love hatin’ on others? Don’t yell back at ‘em with hate—show ‘em how silly they are…by being funny.

    How sad. Grew up in the church. Took me 30 years to realize how much of BOTH sides are missing the point. Church haters, haters in the church. This translation, sprinkle or submerge baptism, baby baptisms, loss of salvation, Trinity as one or Three, e-gads. Churchianity. Religiosity. Absolutely missing the point. I could give you dozens of first-hand experiences of truly pathetic behavior all done with the flavor of hate or judgmentalism. Why bother acknowledging this at all. Why give it more energy or power. Just think what you could accomplish if you directed your energies to something growth oriented?
