Episode #211 - Oppressive Christianity
Click the picture to listen to the episode.
So, you're talking with a friend about something other than the COVID, and your Christian faith comes up. The friend mentions that they have a huge problem with all of the evil that has been done in the name of God throughout history, and that most Christians today seem to be homophobes, xenophobes, transphobes, and, well, you get the picture. How do we respond? How do we teach our kids to respond? The boys are back this week to offer some very kind, sympathetic, non-abrasive, nor phobic-in-any-way, suggestions.
Oppressive Christianity years ago was killing people; oppressive Christianity today is infringing on thoughts/beliefs.
Christian history does not substantiate an oppressive church history, but the exact opposite.
There isn't any defending terrible acts like the crusades, but you have to begin with questioning whether or not those folks were even Christians. Their actions contradict everything that Jesus said.
