I have found what just might be the dumbest Christian meme ever shared on Facebook. I know, there’s a lot of competition for that one, but when you see it, I think you might agree. This was put out by the group American Vision in response to the removal of a Ten Commandments monument from the grounds of the Oklahoma state capitol this week, which they compare to ISIS destroying precious archaeological sites.
Leaving aside the fact that the Ten Commandments monument is not some irreplaceable archaeological artifact, and that it was not destroyed but merely moved a few blocks away, and that it was put there only a few years ago by a legislator who had been warned that it would likely have to be removed because it was unconstitutional, there’s still this little problem: American Vision is a Christian Reconstructionist organization that advocates for the full implementation of the Old Testament Mosaic law as the civil and criminal law of the United States.
That means that they would happily, even gleefully, use the stones from the destruction of that statue in the first picture to murder gay people, blasphemers or women who aren’t virgins on their wedding day. Which means they should probably shut the fuck up when they feel like accusing anyone else of radicalism.
