A Good Christian Girl

This is a personal statement of Christianity by a young woman in the Bay area of California. It seems completely appropriate for our World today. You should read it and let me know if you find anything untoward because I don't.

Who says I hate Christians?

It's all about whether you want to impose your views on others.

Christians, gays, hippies, Mormons, stoners, carnivores... I am blessed to have friends in all of those groups who don't try to use the power of government to impose their lifestyles on others.

I am not the best Christian and find this young lady's story a little unbelievable. She is much too young to truly understand Christ's message, in my opinion.

But whatever one believes I think most people have to admit that the man called Jesus was the most unusual individual who ever walked the Earth.

Provided they don't impose, Christians are perfectly fine with me, but what has always puzzled me is my upbringing in a Scottish Congregational Church led me to believe I am a Christian until I arrived in the United States where we were NOT Christians unless we were "saved." We found the process reprehensible and almost cult-like.

So much for the American Baptist Church.

Commenter WC: You look a lot like Ron Jeremy.

Ron Jeremy? I love that.

I am honored that you come here and read my blog often. Your comments are one of a kind, like the Maharishi.

Your insight into American fundamentalist Christianity from the viewpoint of an immigrant is a good one. Having grown up here I just thought it was ignorant but it is as you point out, elitist.

I knew a woman who felt so inadequate because she could not speak in tongues, that she paid a specialist big money to coach her until she could roll on the floor and gibber with everyone else.

That's what she said.
