Would You Punch a Sucularist?

Matt Barber of the group Liberty Counsel thinks that Secularists and liberals are bullies and need to be dealt with.  Let he who is without sin cast the first stone Mr. Barber.

“They’re bullies. And we know that when people stand up to the bully on the playground — the bully on the playground intimidates, that’s what he does, intimidates people into silence, into fear, into avoiding the bully. And oftentimes the bully is the paper tiger and when the righteous individual who is being bullied defends his or herself and punches the bully in the mouth, guess what, the bully more times than not has a glass jaw, falls down and then everyone on the playground says “whoa, the bully was a weakling after all.”

That’s the secularist left. The secularist left are bullies. They try to bully and intimidate and push religious intolerance and religious bigotry on everyone else.”

Last time I checked the Christian Right had a blind fear of Muslims and gay marriage.  Has he never heard of Westboro Baptist Church?  I have a problem with him using words like “intolerance” and “bigotry” to judge others who don’t agree with him.  If anything, both the liberal secularists and religious right have become equally intolerant and bigoted towards the ideas of the other.  The difference I see is that the religious right claim to follow the teachings of a man who taught love your enemies.  One of these days, one of these “shock radio evangelists” needs to step up and say…

“They’re bullies. They try to bully and intimidate.  And we know that the bully on the playground doesn’t know how to do anything else but intimidate people into silence, into fear, into avoiding the bully. They are often lonely and angry about their situation in life and don’t know any better.  When the righteous individual who is being bullied responds in kindness and love, guess what, the bully more times than not falls.  Let’s take a moment to pray for peace to turn the other cheek, love our bullies, and work with them to stop intolerance and bigotry from the left and the right.”
