Calling Out “Christian” Conservative Hypocrisy: The Best of 2013

hypocritical-christianConservatives and their “Christianity,” it’s quite the funny thing.  Well, at least to me it is.  See, I’m a Christian (as most who follow me know) who spends a decent amount of time trying to reclaim my faith from the hypocritical and hateful right-wing fanatics who for too long have hijacked Christianity — portraying it as something that I firmly believe it’s not.

And maybe I’m biased, but as a political blog I feel we at Forward Progressives are among the leaders as it relates to quality Christian content and exposing conservative ignorance about the faith.  That’s not just me talking — I get emails, messages and posts from readers everywhere telling me the same all the time.

Personally, my goal is to change the perception of what a Christian is because I believe far too many people lump conservative ignorance in with Christianity.  Which I feel is completely inaccurate.  Anyone can call themselves a Christian, but that doesn’t mean they follow Christianity.

Well, over this past year we’ve had several great articles that did a fantastic job at tackling right-wing ignorance about Christianity.  So, in the theme of “year in review” stuff that’s big this time of year, I figured I’d list our 5 best articles related to Christianity and Christian ignorance in 2013.

While obviously I agree with most of them, these are just my favorite five from this past year.

Here we go!

#5: Explaining how Republicans really don’t get Christianity: 

#4: I took on a conservative who shocked me with their absolute ignorance: 

#3: Tackling five key Christian values and how Republicans seem to ignore all of them: 

#2: A fantastic breakdown of the Biblical definition of marriage: 

#1: A simple fact about Republicans and Christianity:

Well, there’s my top 5.  Though I did want to list a couple of “honorable mentions” because I believe we’ve had several great articles this past year:

Alright, I’ll end it there.  I hope you all took a few minutes to check out the above articles, and I promise to keep up the fight to expose right-wing ignorance about Christianity in 2014.
