Gotta commend those pastors Woolf and Kwon for denouncing the shit properly and engaging in self-reflection regarding their share of responsibility, just like muslim leaders should if their sheeple justify their crimes with religious ideology.

Goes for everyone doesn't it?

 

If you're identifying as X (whatever X may be... muslim, conservative, feminist or whathaveyou), others overhype X to beyond insane level, and you stay silent about the bullshit the fanatics do or say, you do not get to complain about how the rest of the world misunderstands X so so much. Case closed.

 

Now if everyone would comply with this simple rule... hey I can dream can't I?

Here's a key paragraph from the story:

 

 

In the manifesto, “you actually hear a frighteningly clear articulation of Christian theology in certain sentences and paragraphs. He has, in some ways, been well taught in the church,” said the Rev. Duke Kwon, a Washington pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America, …

 

In spite of how many of us here may feel about Christianity, I think there may be some good people in it but as Thurisaz suggests, when will they stand up and shut down this shit? Until they do, I hesitate to call them "good people."

Well of course it's beyond pesky to issue a statement to the press or somesuch every time a nutjob ran amok again but... well... the alternative is to get lumped in with the loonies so whacha gonna do. See the association of German Asatruar I'm a member of. Every time some rightard asshole did something disgusting and made it look like Asatruar = fascist fuckface, our press liaison sighs and writes yet another press statement. But who'd have thunk... it mostly works. We stay out of the "these are all nazis!!!111!!!!!111!!!!eleven!!!!!oneoneone!!!!!!!" headlines most of the time.

Can't be that hard for other groups to do the same can it?
