Bigoted? you will burn

21 June 2012, 13:01

Being a Bigoted Christian 

Being bigoted in the Christian context is a sin and you will go to hell if you carry on and don’t repent as bigotry leads to other sins as well..

Bigotry is the state of mind of a "bigot", a person obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices, especially one who exhibits intolerance or animosity toward members of a group. “

Bigotry may be based on real or perceived characteristics, including sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, ethnicity, nationality, region, language, religious or spiritual belief, personal habits, political alignment, age, economic status or disability. “

Reading this description I got of wikipedia  ,it reminds me of some ideology have come across in the history books , Now let me think , o yes that would be national anti Semitism and Apartheid Although we don’t have the Nazis and the national party around anymore to spread their particular brand off Bigotry, We still have the old dinosaur former members stuck in our  churches , I am talking about the main stream churches. Now thou the main stream churches has started to change there stance in this bigotry this rightwing Christian fundamentalists is stuck. “so The origin of the word bigot and bigoterie (bigotry) in English dates back to at least 1598, via Middle French, and started with the sense of "religious hypocrite". This is why this group of people is moving to churches that will accommodate all the bigots under one roof with all the religious hypocrites

Why is being bigoted Wrong and a sin?

Here goes , as Christians we are supposed to look at the bible in its hole context and that is why we have the new and old testament , there is deferent books in the bible and different writers ,Now here is what a typical bigot would do He/She would take one fraise in the bible and use it out of contexts, to force his/her point of view, this would end up ,getting to his or her followers , they would then end up with there own interpretation .and so on and so on like sheep !!!Forming a ideology, and then going to work.

They would also then start to discriminate against there victims and then they like to push their victims out of there comfort zones and start a click, sometimes society follows, this madness and then their bigotry becomes the norm. 

A good example of this would be the nationalist government, and apartheid and the doctoring that the Boers were Gods saved people just like the Jews. And that monster of a bigoted ideology that was created called apartheid – and we all know what sins was committed in the name of apartheid. And how meanly people were , killed ,beaten up segregated, moved for their houses , exsetra exsatra 

The other big one was in Germany with Hitler at the helm, killing millions of Jews. Gays masons, cripples and blacks all in the name of his ideology that the Arian nation should rise and be the only ones worthy of living here on planet earth

So, why did these ideologies fail?

 Well its simple, the society as a hole realized that these ideologies were wrong and got rid of them, simple as that.

Now the mind of the bigot is fascinating it is like looking into a seen of a book but nothing changes you see these people are quite self absorbed, they don’t care what is happening in the world around them and are unable to comprehend there own actions .

The bigots mind is as closed as a bottle store in orania on a Sunday.

Were the problem lays?

These people have infiltrated our society, and now that they don’t have apartheid to focus on they   have only a couple of groups in society that they can focus on to sped their hate. They do this from the places were they work and the places of worship, And we as society, sometimes miss the telling sighs of this bigotry. Except if the victims complain then it is already too late.

I have a friend who was born with no arms and no tong, today he has a grate job  and family, I saw him the other day  and he looked worried, His company that employed him was retrenching people, his fear was coming from the fact that it took him years to find a company who would accommodate him and not just that except him with his skill and give him a job that challenged him , if he should loose his job he would not likely find  a company again and he would be stuck just like before  . People you see, normally just look at his disability and the freak show, not at the person and the skill he possesses

Then they discriminate against him cause they don’t want to hire a freak .Thou this has never stopped my friend and because of his disability he has learned to do more that the average person so that he could get somewhere in life.

I have a Administrator that works for me, she happens to be a black lady, and I feel she is very competent friendly and a resource of information, only yesterday a client ,came in and  I listened to the conversation, he was undermining her, insulting her, thought she dint know what was going on , this is were I stepped in , every question he asked me I turned around to my collogue and asked the same question in front of this guy , and the lady gave him all the answers to the clients questions, he later apologized to her. And she excepted it , but this happens to her every day ,one could say that she is a victim of bigotry and racism at the same time- and the customer white Afrikaans speaking German is a bigot of note

The other form of bigotry, is one that Christian bigots thrive on, the bigots use their, hate to discriminate against, gay people cause a bigot is so superior that they can’t shear the religion Christianity with gay people, they create this image of this group calling them, perverts and pedophiles and lust seekers, and then take scripture out of the original contexts. And then they try to kick them out of the church, by telling them they will burn in hell.. What nonsense! If all Christians felt like this there would be no church left cause, if gay people were bigoted they could do the same. And point back at them .but they don’t cause it would make them the same as the bigot.

The pain a victim of bigotry go thru is the following, depression, guilt, hate, rejection, this could lead to , anger, suicide, up rising, it all just depends with circumstance.

I personally, don’t like bigoted people but I feel that we need to educate, and show people when they are bigoted, instead of letting their hate spread. So please next time you see people being bigoted, just tell them that they are being a idiot
