Brainwashed: a forcible indoctrination to induce someone to give up basic political, social, or religious beliefs and attitudes and to accept contrasting regimented ideas.
In other words to CHANGE another's current opinion from what they believe to what you are aggressively feeding them.
So, this got me to thinking. Non-Christians are always accusing Christians of being brainwashed for their beliefs. But I concede, is it the Christians who are brainwashed? Or is it everyone else who have progressively (through the media and other outlets) been taught acceptance of any and all things??
Gawd forbid Christians not be accepting of anything... Gawd forbid they actually remain faithful to their beliefs.
The people I can't stand more than those who would make it their life goal to brainwash Christians into accepting all things and all people are the Christians who actually allow themselves to be brainwashed. Those who make comments like "I USED to be a Christian BUT..."
but what? But... You allowed society to brainwash you into believing abortion is legal, so it's ok? Or "God made us this way", so it's ok...
Why is it that if Christians don't accept these brainwashed secular views that are the ones accused of being brainwashed, simply for staying true to what they believe?
Most people were so quick to jump on the bandwagon a couple weeks back that society is the one who has taught us that a mother from an ancient Asian tribe sucking her infant son's penis is wrong. Really? Society has brainwashed us into thinking THAT is wrong?? How about decent morals taught us that a mother sucking her son's penis is wrong.
Society is brainwashing many of you, but sadly enough the result is moral decay... And Christians are evil. Do none of you actually realize how asinine that even sounds?
I do realize that not all "Christians" are good people... Every group has it's nutjobs. But I'm not talking about those who cause harm "for the cause". They are idiots.
ETA: The point of this post was not to say "if you're not a Christian, you're brainwashed". What I'm saying is, why do many non Christians accuse Christians of being brainwashed when they are in fact the ones who stick to their beliefs and don't allow society to sway them?? The term brainwashed doesn't mean people are taught not to be free-thinkers (as many Christians are accused). It means to be aggressively convinced to change what you do believe. In conclusion, true Christians are the very opposite of brainwashed...
I don't understand why it's so difficult for many to grasp this. perhaps it's because many of you are simply thinking within the confines of your own personal views. So much for "I respect whatever you want to believe... Acceptance of all people and opinions as long as you don't force yours on me". Smh.
