The Onion Gets Emergent

This was originally posted at EpinoiaCafe.com

The Onion today has an opinion piece: I’m not one of those ‘Love thy Neighbor’ Christians that is an absolute riot. If I were as funny as they are, I’d write it up sarcastically, but… I just can’t.

I’m here to tell you there are lots of Christians who aren’t anything like the preconceived notions you may have. We’re not all into “turning the other cheek.” We don’t spend our days committing random acts of kindness for no credit. And although we believe that the moral precepts in the Book of Leviticus are the infallible word of God, it doesn’t mean we’re all obsessed with extremist notions like “righteousness” and “justice.”

Amazing work, Onion.
