3. The Golden Rule states that we should "Do unto others as we would have them

do unto us". There are times when this isn't effective and we need to use the alternate rule of "Do unto others before they do unto you/us". If we choose wisely, we know when it's best to use each rule.

6. You shouldn't be allowed to get married is a good one

You'll just be divorced in a few years, cheating on each other. No sense in baking a wedding cake either.

8. That one I can get behind.

In general, while I like the sentiment of this post I think it's fundamentally pointless. The people who are the most vocal will say you're attacking them for their faith (as a side bar, that might be true if you said their religious sect.) The people you might be able to persuade will either be confused or think that perhaps you are attacking them for their faith.

Saying they shouldn't be allowed to get married actually works. If their going to get divorced they're in areas that Christ really did condemn. If they're going to commit adultery their in areas that Paul condemned. If they're going to sin anyhow just have at and stop pretending that the know God's will.

13. I come out and say it

 

Yes I am attacking your faith its toxic.
And you choose to believe toxic things and that shows me all I need to know about the kind of degenerate you really are. So yes I am a bigoted against assholes.

10. 👆🏻👆🏻👆🏻

This is brilliant. Seems they don’t like the taste of their own words when they’re made to eat them.

11. Excellent! How about this? Me vs. every Evangelical that I meet.


Me: How old is the earth?

Evangelical: Seven thousand years old.

Me: How old is the universe?

Evangelical: We aren't sure, maybe seven thousand years old, maybe forever.

Me: How long has God been around?

Evangelical: Oh, well, God has been around forever.

Me: So, how can we human earth creatues be THAT important if God has been around for all time and we've only been around for seven thousand years?! How special are we? What was God doing with all of his free time?

12. Tweet tweet tweet

This isn't how Evangelicals talk to gay people. They don't talk TO gay people; they talk to each other ABOUT gay people. There is no "inter-faith dialogue".

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Ally Maynard will never have a chance to deploy any of these zingers.
