Why Laugh At Others

Just when you think BG could not go any lower, he surprises everyone and does it. Nothing is gained by mocking others and Christians should not do it to anyone. They need to remember how they felt when Jesus was mocked when he was being crucified.

It is not a good feeling and when people mock, it undermines their arguments and points of view. here is what BG posted:

This is the latest installment in the Songs of Sacrilege series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a song that is irreverent towards religion, makes fun of religion, pokes fun at sincerely held religious beliefs, or challenges the firmly held religious beliefs of others, please send me an email.(source)

We know what it is like to be mocked, we have had to endure it since childhood. It is never fun. We learned not to do it by how we felt when it was done to us. besides, mocking is not part of ‘loving thy neighbor as thyself’.

Why make fun of something people believe in? We remember when we were in Korea and there was a poster in the comment section. He felt free to tell Koreans what they should do but when he was told what he should do, he erupted in anger and shouted at anyone who tried.

BG does not like getting mocked, analyzed, shown to be in error, and so on. We know this from the myriad of articles he writes whining and crying that someone challenged his point of view.

Yet here he is throwing the first stone at those who believe in the Jesus he quit on and left. That is not right in any belief or non-belief system. As we have noted in many of our articles, it is tough to live the Christian life.

The people who stick to their faith should be praised not vilified or made targets. Just because a person like BG does not believe, that does not give him permission to demean and insult those who do. Nor does it grant him permission to insult or criticize their religious faith.

We know that many Christians mock those that do not believe and they should not do that. Such behavior only hardens hearts and keeps people away from the faith. We may criticize, analyze and examine other false religions, etc., but we do not mock those people who believe in those false ways.

We do feel sad for them as they are deceived and in need of true help, something that mocking does not accomplish anything constructive and makes you less of a person. It isn’t Christ-like either as Jesus never mocked.

If you want to win someone to Christ, return good for evil as Jesus said to do
