Born Again Pagan A bumper stick that is meant to be antagonistic?

 

I think he's averaging at least one per sentence, but I might have missed a few.

 

For those who couldn't stomach the idiot yesterday, it's hit the patheos Twitter and blogs - go read the comments.  I don't know if he'll bother to listen, but he's being told.

    It gets better - ALL pagans (apparently, even the Native Americans) are Christians who left Christianity and need to go back to be whole again.

  • That was painful to read. I think a better game would be "let's see if we can find an ounce of truth in this op-ed". ; )

  • Ugh.  I suppose by his logic, I should take all those fish symbols that "grace" so many vehicles in my area as a slam to all non-Christians.  I couldn't finish reading the article, either.  I just went off a GF diet, and already feel sick.  His ignorance did nothing to settle my stomach.

  • i didn't read more than a few sentences... obviously the author has no understanding that pagan religions are, in fact, religions.
