Christians are weasels.
Just like everyone else. There is absolutely no reason to think they should be any less weasely than anyone else EXCEPT that too many Christians go around telling anyone who will listen that they have more of clue than everyone else. So they bring the abuse on themselves and they deserve most of it. Frederick Buechener, a Presbyterian minister and author says that Christians aren't better than anyone else they just have a half-baked idea of whom to thank.

Which brings us to . . .

Jesus. Now there is a nutcase.
He claimed to be the Son of God. He claimed he could do miracles. He said no one could know God without him.

Take a look at Luke 22: 7 – 13
What are the odds of that happening? And what kind of nutball would send people on that kind of wild goose chase?

As CS Lewis suggests he's on par with someone claiming to be a poached egg. Or he's God.

I don't really think there's any middle ground. Even if he was a nutball, he still had some pretty dang good ideas for how to live and how to treat each other.

But he's nuts I tell ya!

Or God.

Take your pick.
