Lonewolf Diaries: All Christians are Serial Killers

This will ruffle some feathers...

Lonewolf Diaries: All Christians are Serial Killers

Not sure I agree but I like the Chris Hutchins like title.... God is Not Great: Religion poisons everything.

He's done some good cherry picking of his data. Sure, there are the portrayals of the loony, fanatic Christians in the movies/on TV. But I notice that he doesn't mention the other portrayals. The good, kind minister tending to his flock. The kindly nuns, the quietly faithful churchgoer, the good god-fearing man standing up against the cynical establishment, and so on. For each fanatical killer that gets portrayed, there are many more portrayals of Christians as good people.

He's exaggerating to make his point, but I think his point is rather dulled. That the media is not portraying Christians as uniformly good people is not persecution.

"Conservative Christians who are statistically far and away the most generous people on the planet" I'd like to check that source. Seattle is quite charitable and quite non-religious. Has he heard of Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, or Paul Allen. They pay well and give away their fortunes. Compare them to the Waltons.
I think that South Park and Family Guy have hit everyone sufficiently well. It's simply that watching kooks puts asses in seats and the Christians have enough kooks to keep the writing good. Keep your adherents from attacking our education system, political system, and general way of life, and the writers will find the next easy target. They really are like predators... if you don't move, they won't see you! Buddhists, Sikths, and Hindus aren't crazy here, so they don't write about them. Shhhh, it's our little secret.
