A holiday message from Ricky Gervais

.

There’s a little piece rolling about the Internets written by Ricky Gervais. You should read it.

He pridefully declares himself more Christian than most Christians. What a jerk!

Wait a minute. Did I say, “Jerk”?

I meant, “Interesting way to put it.”

In the piece, Gervais takes the 10 commandment challenge, which he passes with flying colors. And he also says stuff like:

Jesus was a man. (And if you forget all that rubbish about being half God, and believe the non-supernatural acts accredited to him, he was a man whose wise words many other men would still follow.) His message was usually one of forgiveness and kindness. These are wonderful virtues but I have seen them discarded by many so-called God-fearers when it suits them. They cherry pick from their “rulebook” basically. I have seen such cruelty and prejudice performed in the name of Christianity (and many other religions for that matter) that it makes me wonder if there has been a bit too much selective reading and reinterpretation of the doctrines.

Go read the rest of the article. You’ll love to hate it … or you’ll love loving it.
