Wartburg Watch IS the Christian Left - read the comments; it's all there.

I saw this written about the progressive left, I fear it too easily fits the Christian left.

"The most pernicious aspect of this evolution of the [ Christian ] left, is how it seems to be changing people, and how rapidly since the [ advent of T.W.W.] .

 I have been dwelling on this Nietzsche quote for almost six months now, 

'He who fights with monsters, should be careful lest he thereby become a monster. And if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.' 

 How easy is it for ordinary humans to commit atrocious acts? History teaches us it’s pretty damn easy when you are BLINDED TO YOUR OWN HYPOCRISY. When you believe you are morally superior, [ to conservative Evangelicals ]  when you have dehumanized those you disagree with [ John Piper, Mark Dever, Al Mohler, Lig Duncan et al],  you can justify almost anything. In a particularly vocal part of the  [ Christian ] left, justification for dehumanizing and committing [ libelous ] violence against those on the 
[ Evangelical right ] right has long since begun. "

Everyday there are fresh, libelous comments on T.W.W. smearing men and women they do not know, have never met, and profaning them with ad hominem attacks which never appear to  be reined in.

SO, T.W.W.'s  witness to a lot of us is that the blog and commenters are angry, bitter people claiming to be believers whom, after reading their comments, you'd  feel uneasy sharing a cup of coffee with lest they attack you after you left.

Are there problems with the church?  OF COURSE.  There's always been problems with the church, there will ALWAYS be problems of the church but letting commenters libel men and women they DO NO KNOW is simply sinful.  Until a serious attempt to rein in the commenters is seen, one has to believe that Dee and Deb are possibly just as angry and bitter as the commenters themselves.

Ladies, you can stop it if you really wish, otherwise I'll never believe it is not your intent to bludgeon with verbal clubs Godly men and women [ far from perfect but none of them claim that ] with whom you disagree.

Stop the ad hominem attacks and maybe a lot of us who no longer listen will at least give your concerns serious attention.  But until then,  not so much.

Those claiming to be seeing monsters under every Evangelical rock are becoming monsters themselves.
