WHY ARE SOME CHRISTIANS HYPOCRITES AND JUDGMENTAL?
Unfortunately, today Christians are most easily identified by what they’re against than what they’re for.
Christians don’t always earn the best reputation. They’ve been described as judgmental, hypocritical, old-fashioned, too political, boring, and insensitive. They might be described as hypocritical or judgmental when portrayed in ways that go against Christianity’s central tenet of love.
You only have to turn on the TV for a few minutes to understand the issues those in the LGBTQ+ have with Christians. We often see Christians on the nightly news angrily defending the indefensible actions of those in power.
This perception of Christians makes it difficult for many LGBTQ+ to believe in the God of the Bible.
If followers of a living and loving God act so poorly, then it brings into question whether God is real or attentive to the needs of people. LGBTQ+ might even go as far as to blame religion itself as a cause for division and barriers between people.
Those who yell the loudest online do not exemplify what’s so special about Jesus or great about God’s love. Before writing off all Christians as judgmental hypocrites, consider getting to know a person of true faith so you can find out what it really means to become a follower of Jesus.
REAL Followers of Jesus today can acknowledge and agree with many of the observations of LGBTQ+. It’s sad to see public figures connected with the Christian faith pursue power over caring for their community. But, on the other hand, it’s also important to remember a few things.
First, every family tree has some bad fruit. In the same way, you probably have an uncle, aunt, or cousin you’d prefer not to represent your family, there are plenty of public figures who followers of Jesus wish weren’t identified with.
Second, it’s important to not judge all Christians by what’s shown in the media. This idea applies to every professional career. We don’t say all doctors, lawyers, coaches, and salesmen are badly based on the sad stories of a select few.
Third, it all comes back to Jesus. There was just something about Jesus that drew the empowered and impoverished. He offered wholeness and healing to those with the greatest needs. He began a revolution of service that has defined the church since the beginning. The selfless example of believers in the Bible led many to believe in Jesus. Followers of Jesus are definitely imperfect, but continue to show God’s great love by beginning hospitals, homeless shelters, and recovery centers.
What would happen if you embraced the possibility that the God of the Bible really did create the world and really does care for you?
Recently we have come to the knowledge of Herschel Walker who much like the Lt Governor of North Carolina Mark Robinson who personally I am not fond of Refer to Article https://gaysfortrump.org/mark-robinson-will-further-divide-the-republican-party-of-trump-and-he-does-not-have-my-vote/ it seems both of these individuals both had Abortions in their past. Yet, today they are STRONGLY AGAINST access to any abortions (this includes rape and incest) nor are they willing to compromise on their “beliefs.”
Enjoy this thread I made on Twitter:
Hate me if you want for bringing it up.
I know a certain Lt Governor that NC has who did the same thing with an abortion… I mean none of what is mentioned is exclusive to Republicans, plenty of Democrats do it too… pic.twitter.com/XRRCQ2GqIK

This being said it makes them hypocrites in the highest sense because what was once good for them is NOT good for others. This hides the past, pretending you are at a higher moral caught up to Walker when his very son Christain Walker (who to be honest I think is annoying and has worked against the efforts of gay conservatives) had enough and called out his dad for it. In the end, both the Walkers are hypocrites, but then again we all might be in one way or another as I will admit I probably have been one myself. I think the difference is I am willing to admit it and grow.
If you are not evolving in your critical thinking which includes life and your politics then you are not growing.
I leave you with some of the editor notes from our previous article
I know that just by posting this article like many others as a Right Winger there will be hate thrown at me from my own party and those on the “same side” as myself. Many people hold strong religious beliefs they have been “groomed” into believing, mine is not to try to change their beliefs because it’s just not possible.
What my goal is to publish or republish is to help fellow #GaysForTrump, #GaysAgainstGroomers, #LogCabinRepublicans, #GayConservativesOfAmerica, etc have a way to combat any hate we get for being gay. It absolutely is NOT easy to be a Gay Republican, but many of us in the LGBTQ+ community that does not feel that the left best serves ALL AMERICANS know that we belong more on the right than our fellow Republicans realize we do. Until they do we have to have access to resources that will support us when questioned. I hope that our articles help. God Bless all of you.
