The Judge Goes to Hell

This is the reason why I don't attend church. Any group of people who can be this arrogant, this prideful of themselves, this unforgiving, this narrow-minded, and this disgusting of human beings is not a group of people I want to associate myself with.

I can't believe the Southern Baptists (or those in charge of the Southern Baptists and this particular pastor) would force the Judge who ordered the feed tube to be removed from Terri Shiavo out of their church.

A Southern Baptist leader said the Florida judge who ordered the removal of Schiavo's feeding tube has resigned his membership in a Southern Baptist church.

The Rev. Richard Land said that Judge George Greer and the Baptist church he attended in Clearwater came "to a mutual agreement that he resigned his membership."

The St. Petersburg Times said the pastor of Calvary Baptist Church wrote Greer a letter warning that, quote: "In all likelihood it is this case which will define your career and this case that you will remember in the waning days of life."

They ordered a Judge to leave their church because he made a difficult decision. Well fuck you for not letting people do their job. Fuck you for expecting everyone to do something like be a leader of a hypocritical, anti-Christian, organization like the Southern Baptists. Fuck you for treating him differently than someone who has a job that doesn't require you to make decisions that alter other peoples life. Fuck you for encouraging a situation where either everyone on the judiciary makes decisions by faith or where people of faith are fearful of sitting on the bench because of spiritual reprecussions

I used to love going to Church. I used to believe that the church was organized to do good things. I used to believe that despite a few bad seeds most Christians were wanting to do things to improve society, help people, and make themselves better people. Unfortunately I can't believe the former even if I still believe the latter.

The organizations that have corrupted Christianity are disgusting.
