Ellen Barkin blasts ‘violent vitriolic tweets’ from Christian conservatives

Liberal actress Ellen Barkin believes there is an epidemic of “violent vitriolic tweets” from Christians on Twitter. As she explained last fall, nobody else posts “truly ugly comments.” Only conservative Christians.

We didn’t see any violent tweets from Christian conservatives aimed at Barkin, but there certainly was plenty of vitriol against Christians from her followers:

Ellen Barkin: Why are the truly ugly tweets always from Christian conservatives?

  • OpenTheDoor

    Ellen who?

    Was she somebody before she got so old and ugly?

    Whatever happened to aging gracefully like Garbo.

    She looks like a wraith.

    • CatHerder

      More like the Wrath of God.

      • OpenTheDoor

        What is it about “atheist” do you not understand?
        What I don’t understand is why unbelievers feel they have to strike out at the Flying Spaghetti Monster acolytes?

        • grais

          Is that 2nd sentence really a question?

        • CatHerder

          Where did I lose you? You said she looked like a wraith, I played off that by saying she looked more like the Wrath of God. Not sure how atheism fits in there, but it’s okay.

          • OpenTheDoor

            I am a non believer but likening her to The Wrath of God seems like something she is unworthy of.

            The second sentence is a throw away, not intended for you.

            I still don’t understand the aggressive attitude towards believers.

            As long as believers are not planting bombs at races, they can do as they like.

            Come on Ellen, stand tall, question and criticize the Jihad.

          • Conrad2010

            .

            Why do atheist spend their entire life fighting a God they believe doesn’t exist?

          • Strange Cosmic Experiment

            “I still don’t understand the aggressive attitude towards believers.” Because deep down they believe but they don’t want any part of God (they vehemently don’t want to see and hear bout Him, especially from us Christians)

      • Jay Stevens

        How about wraith of God?

    • rennyangel2

      Exactly. Ellen What?

    • Shawn Smith

      You can’t walk around with that much vicious hatred without it warping your face after a couple of decades.

      • trixiewoobeans

        Yes, note to Lib Regressives…that ugly on the inside morphs to your outsides, just sayin’.

      • Finrod Felagund

        I’m waiting for Ellen Barkin to condemn the hate-tweets directed at Larry Elder. I figure carbon dioxide will freeze in Hades first.

  • Juan Pablo

    She’s still alive?!?!?

    • Shawn Smith

      Nah, this is a reanimated corpse walking around. Spewing liberal mantras requires minimal brain power, so it’s just barely above hunger on the instinct scale for zombies.

      • Texan357

        I’m reminded of Bob Hope having the concept of zombies explained to him and remarking “Like Democrats?” Exactly, sir.

      Maybe, but certainly not working.

  • $472942

    When ever this bitch blabs the only description that comes to my mind is douche bag…

  • Marie

    So we’re supposed to let them treat us like crap and just lie down and take it? This bitch and her demented little acolytes think there th should be able to abuse us without us fighting back.

    Well, that it’s not happening. I don’t care because I don’t answer to them. If you are going to be nasty and say stupid crap like “ask Catholics are child molesters” I am going to call you out on it.

    Furthermore, notice how she does not cite any examples. Not even a single retweet. I think she is making it all up. Most Christians are not like me. In her stupid little world, disagreeing with her is being hateful and vitriolic.

    As for the rest of the subhuman scum, I wish nothing but the worst in life on them. Yes I am vitriolic and hateful and I don’t care. What the he’ll do they expect after all that?

    Oh right, they expect me to just sit here and let them call me a child molester.

    • Slugglife

      True. I don’t take orders from whiny liberals and
      I don’t give a damn what they think about my faith. Self absorbed irrelevant actresses who are a day away from being a dinosaur in their industry trying to remain in the spotlight amuse me. Their work sucks so they need to use Christians to keep them in the good grace of the commies in hollyweird. What happened to her anyway? Her face looks like a catchers mitt.

      “So we’re supposed to let them treat us like crap and just lie down and take it?”

      Yes you are. If you’re truly in Christ and not just a Christian in name only, that is EXACTLY what you are to do, else you deny the Scripture and belie your profession of faith. The principle spans both Old and New Testaments.

      Leviticus 19:18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the LORD.

      Deuteronomy 32:35
      It is mine to avenge; I will repay. In due time their foot will slip;
      their day of disaster is near and their doom rushes upon them.”

      Proverbs 20:22 Do not say, “I’ll pay you back for this wrong!” Wait for the LORD, and he will avenge you.

      Proverbs 24:29 Do not say, “I’ll do to them as they have done to me; I’ll pay them back for what they did.”

      Romans 12:17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.

      Romans 12:19 Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for
      His wrath. For it is written: Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay,
      says the Lord.

      2 Timothy 4:14 Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done.

      * * *

      To speak as you did supports the slanderous point the atheists made in those tweets. Was that your true purpose?

      • R.C.

        Joe. We arent supposed to seek vengeance, but there is nothing about just “taking” it like youre suggesting. Yea, turn the other cheek, but we only have 2 cheeks. At some point you stand up in righteous anger and defend yourself and your beliefs.

        Go back and read Ecc. 3 there is a time for everything.

        • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

          Ecclesiastes does not instruct the believer to take revenge.

          Now, please address the passages I cited which tell the believer not to take revenge, then feel free to justify taking revenge anyway.

          • http://twitter.com/thetugboatphil TugboatPhil

            Defending oneself does not equal revenge.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            True, but there’s a thin line that cannot be crossed. The apostle Paul’s rights as a Roman citizen were violated and he appealed to Caesar. But he did not do it merely for the sake of his rights – he did not do it to defend himself as a Roman citizen, though he fully had that liberty. He did it so that the Gospel of Christ could be carried to the seat of civilization. And so it was.

            By the tone of it, what Mary was proposing in her post above is far more akin to avenging oneself.

            I would also remind anyone who reads this that Christ Himself, when slandered, did not answer in kind. Paul reflected this when he wrote,

            “when we are slandered, WE ANSWER KINDLY. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.” 1 Cor 4:13

            Mary and R. Collins propose doing the exact opposite. Either they are correct or Scripture is, but one is wrong.

          • R.C.

            Joe, your idiot is showing.

          • 44Grim

            well, your fruit is showing.

          • R.C.

            Yea man, JD is off the deep end on this passive b.s.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            True Tug, the Bible also says that if a man doesn’t provide for his family, which includes security, they are worse than an infidel and denied the faith. There’s nothing wrong with defending yourself and your family.

            “A time to love and a time to hate”. “A time to keep silence and a time to speak”; “A time for war and a time for peace….”—-We are in a state of war with progressive liberalism, Joe, and I will no longer be silent, nor will I love these miscreants who hate every thing that I cherish. YOU, would benefit from reading YOUR Bible, Son, and quit pontificating on the rest of us.

          • Joe W.

            Continuing to pull stuff out of context to belabor your invalid point defines you as a liberal troll, Joe. Are you really one of those??

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Show how it’s out of context.

          • Joe W.

            THIS, is the context, idiot:

            1 Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the amysteries of God.

            2 Moreover it is required in astewards, that a man be found bfaithful.

            3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self.

            4 For I know nothing aby myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that bjudgeth me is the Lord.

            5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the ahidden things of darkness, and will make bmanifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

            6 And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be apuffed up for one against another.

            7 For who maketh thee ato differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not breceive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

            8 Now
            ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I
            would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you.

            9 For I think that God hath set forth us the aapostles last, as it were bappointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men.

            10 We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised.

            11 Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are abuffeted, and have no certain dwellingplace;

            12 And alabour, working with our bown chands: being dreviled, we bless; being epersecuted, we fsuffer it:

            13 Being defamed, we entreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

            14 I write not these things to ashame you, but as my beloved bsons I cwarn you.

            15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the agospel.

            16 Wherefore I beseech you, be ye afollowers of me.

            17 For this cause have I sent unto you aTimotheus,
            who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you
            into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where
            in every church.

            18 Now some are apuffed up, as though I would not come to you.

            19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power.

            20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in apower.

            21 aWhat will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of bmeekness?

            I am not about to spend my day arguing theology with a moron, Joe. You would be well advised to stop attempting to shame and mock Christians who have picked up the gauntlet and have made the decision to engage in the war perpetrated upon them by the secular left. Got it?? I certainly hope so. If not, then you are too ignorant for my help, Son. Bless your heart anyway.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Congratulations – you are able to cut and paste.

            I have no interest in debating you. I take God’s Word very seriously but you made a strong accusation against my handling of it. So I asked you to show me how I took that passage out of context, not paste the whole passage.

            Here, look at it again:

            “When we are cursed, WE BLESS; when we are persecuted, WE ENDURE IT; when we are slandered, WE ANSWER KINDLY. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.” 1 Cor 4:12-13

            This is how Paul and his associates responded to the very kinds of things professing Christians are here complaining about. No hyperbole, no exaggeration on Paul’s part…not just unbelievers but many in the professing Church had arrogantly begun to turn away from them and were treating them like scum…people who would never have known Christ if not for the ministry of Paul and his associates, but now despised them.

            Yet the above is how Paul, in Christ’s Spirit, replied to them all. That is the example we’re to follow when faced with similar slander.

            And you tell me I take it out of context.

            So once again…please tell me how exactly did I take the passage out of context?

            Not looking for a debate or even a discussion – just want your answer to this.

            You made the accusation. Back it up, please.

            Or is it just a matter that you know better how to respond to slander than Christ’s apostles did?

          • Joe W.

            Defending God’s Word is what I’ve been doing, against some who have twisted it into grounds of retaliating to slander with slander in order to satisfy their sense of outrage for receiving personal insults, which amounts to taking vengeance for wrongs. Which is forbidden to Christians.

          • Howzah123

            You’re lying to yourself. Your entire statement is a house of cards that rests on YOUR notion that Christians defending themselves from attack is “slander” and “revenge”

Standing up for one’s beliefs shouldn’t involve the word idiot, especially while claiming to defend God. I’m amazed how much ‘Christians’ have given up using their brains and traded it for emotional outbursts.

            Did David not defend himself against Goliath?

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Not quite.

            First, God delivered Goliath into David’s hand.

            Second, it was David who called out Goliath after the giant had spent over a month, unchallenged, defying and mocking the army of the living God.

            Note carefully: David did NOT self-righteously face Goliath in anger at personal slander or getting his feelings hurt by bad words. David went out by faith to defend the honor of God’s chosen nation, thereby defending the honor of God Himself. David was very angry but it was for the God he served and loved. He was not angry for himself.

            1 Samuel ch. 17 is available online if you care to check any of that.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Please quote a KJV, all other versions are corrupted. Please research the origins of all the different versions. They are different by evil design… “For if the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteous do?”

          • Emily B

            That is ridiculous.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Really? Please do your own research before making your ‘judgment’.

          • Emily B

            I’ve done plenty research. I know all about the opinion that the KJV is the only “Holy” version of the Bible. It is ridiculous. There is nothing wrong with the KJV. In fact, I really like it. Most of the memorization I do is from the KJV (that’s what I grew up on). But this notion that it is the only “inspired” version is simply not true. Actually, the New American Standard Bible is considered the most accurately translated version from the original Greek/Hebrew/Aramaic.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            I also prefer the KJV over any of the others. There are studies out there comparing it to all the other versions, which came from 2 separate texts, the Vaticanus and the Sinaiticus, whereas the 1611 KJV is directly from the Byzantine texts.

            Where the Vaticanus and Sinaiticus often contradicted one another, Wescott and Hort chose one always over the other.

            In any event, “But this notion that it is the only “inspired” version is simply not true.” hasn’t been disproved, has it.

            Rev 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
            And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            You think you’re at war? That’s why you’re so invested in this? Okay.

            Leftists – as evil as they are – are flesh and blood, soon passing from this scene even as we. Therefore not the true enemy. Your war is with the wrong target.

            Ephesians 6:12: “For our struggle is NOT against FLESH AND BLOOD, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

            Is THAT out of context, too?

            You really need to lay off citing Scripture, friend. There’s a warning against twisting it to your own ends, which you have done every single time today. Do be careful.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            As I said above, I, as a Christian, believe wicked people are influenced by evil spirits. 1/3 of the angelic host fell with Lucifer, and are bound here on earth. Speaking for myself, it’s not the people I get angry at, it’s those spirits that are oppressing them.

            KJV Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            I agree but, again, that’s been part of my whole point: As evil as leftists are, they are not the Christian’s enemy. They are the victims and pawns of our real enemy, Satan. So talk of being “at war” with spiritually blinded flesh-and-blood people (as some guy said earlier, and quite proudly) is anti-biblical.

            So, knowing they are blinded by Satan makes talk of retaliating against them in kind (with slander, insults, etc) quite unchristlike.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Agreed 100%, but Satan has also blinded their minds so they cannot see and believe the Truth (2 Cor 4:4). Their unbelief came first, though, that’s true.

            Hey Joe, I have been reading with interest your interpretaion of Scripture. I can understand how you can reason this, but as you stated; context is everything.

            2 Corinthians 10 speaks of destroying arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God.

            So from a practical standpoint, what would be your recommendation?

            The turning of the other cheek actually meant an insult. In that day you could only use your left hand for unclean tasks. In fact there was a penalty for using your left hand. So to strike the right cheek, it would have to be a backhanded slap which would be demeaning and insulting signifying that the person slapping or hurling the insults consider themselves to be of a higher class and social order. To turn the other cheek would then put the one insulted on equal ground with the offender, thus giving the one insulted equal footing.

            And then Paul pronounced a curse on anyone, angel or human, who did not preach the true Gospel, even referring to immasculation or castration. See Galatians.

            Jesus Himself was not a pacifist:

            John 2:13-16
            When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, Jesus went up to Jerusalem. In the temple courts he found men selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. So he made a whip out of cords, and drove all from the temple area, both sheep and cattle; he scattered the coins of the money changers and overturned their tables. To those who sold doves he said, “Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father’s house into a market!”
            Luke 22:36
            He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one.”

            And David, a man after God’s own heart had some unkind words for his enemies. See many Psalms
            And then Proverbs states that wisdom cries out in the streets. The Gospel is to be declared. And Peter tells us to be ready to give a defense of the hope that is in us. None of these indicate explicit or implicit passivity.
            I thnk in some ways our silence has been deafening and society has paid a dear price for us not standing for the Truth. I know there is a difference between being insulting and demeaning, and showing the fallacy and foolishness of what some believe.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Hello Greg,

            You ask me what I think we should do. I don’t know you but odds are you won’t like my answer.

            Here’s the main problem I see, as exemplified in many sincere posts on this thread: It is a biblical fact that Christians can do nothing – NOTHING – to stop the slide into moral corruption which all societies will face, and which ours is experiencing. Period. It’s all part of God’s long-ago ordained plan to bring forth the final corruption of this already corrupted system, which will once and for all leave Man without any excuse before God, and will lead to the glorious return of the King, Christ Jesus.

            But note how few Christians seem to believe that and are counting on it, patiently but eagerly expecting it; more of them actively oppose the thought of Christ’s literal, visible, physical return (doubts about which also were forewarned) and even have the arrogance to think they can delay if not usher it in themselves. But they can’t. The timing is all of God.

            My point:

            I do not know precisely what part the Left or Islam plays in the stage-setting we’re seeing but I am persuaded it will be a LESSER role than has been and is now being played by Christendom – meaning all those who claim Christ’s name but to whom He will say, “Depart from Me, I never knew you.”

            One vital distinctive of the last days will be people “holding to a form of godliness but denying the power thereof.” They will seek to APPEAR to be of God, but won’t be.

            What is the power of godliness? The indwelling Christ Himself via His Gospel is the power of God unto salvation as well as the power for a sanctified walk for the believer. How many today even know that, and by faith walk in it? Few do.

            For that reason, Christ, speaking through the apostle to the Gentiles (that’s us) tells us not to entangle ourselves in worldly affairs nor to yoke ourselves in common cause with unbelievers: it all takes our focus off of Christ, where we’re told to keep it.

            Please know that the Christians like me who are castigated for our reluctance to take this futile fight to our human “enemies” (for they’re not the real enemy) are reluctant precisely because God’s Word says we do not wrestle with flesh and blood but with the demonic powers that energize them. That’s what the Word says YET we’re in the minority, so we get blamed for being “too heavenly minded” and losing elections and such (when we’re actually not at fault for that).

            In the end, all we see and know will burn at the Word of Christ upon His return to establish His kingdom because it will first fall into the hands of Satan (it already is Satan’s, truth be told). I despise Islam as pagan idolatry but false Christians are doing FAR more to pave the way for Antichrist than either the Left or Muslims are doing because THEY’RE SUPPOSED TO KNOW BETTER because THEY’VE GOT THE BOOK! The Christian’s job is not to try to save the unsavable wreck of this world (including our dying republic) but to save souls FROM the wreck. Sharing
            the Gospel of Christ with the Left and with Muslims is infinitely more important to Him than merely opposing mosques going up all around us, marching in anti-abortion parades or attending useless “Reclaiming America for Christ” rallies. The former is what we, the Body of Christ,
            are here to do as His ambassadors: to beg people in His stead to be reconciled to God. The latter are passing, worldly, ultimately futile wastes of time that, the Bible warns, cannot succeed.

            You asked for my recommendation. It is this: Apart from defending the veracity of God’s Word, praying for those in leadership, preaching Christ and Him crucified, and walking a holy walk in Christ, there’s NOTHING we can do. That’s all we ever could do. Nothing else will make any difference…voting, rallies, protests, boycotts, petitions…it’ll all end up for naught when this world burns.

            I guessed you wouldn’t like my answer. Am I right? Pardon my going on so long but you asked! Grace to you and yours…

          • Greg Lewis

            It has nothing to do with whether or not I like your answer. The fundamental question is how do we interpret certain passages. For example you referenced the same passage in 2 Corinthians 10 that I made reference to but left out verse 5 when speaking of wrestling. It states that we destroy arguments. From a very practical standpoint, I understand we pray. But the word of God is referenced as a weapon in Ephesians. And the word karthaireo can mean with or without the use of force.
            If I am speaking with someone who wishes to deny the existence of God or dafame God’s word, do I passively sit in a corner and pray? In Acts 13:10, Paul is dealing with the demonic but addresses a man. The man was blinded, not the demon.
            Acts 15:10 speaks of no small dissension and debate with the Judaizers.In Acts 17 you see Paul reasoning with them who are followers of idols. He used logic which is sometimes necessary.Over and over again we see the Apostles in the book of Acts reasoning and persuading.
            Now I truly believe that your desire and my desire is to see Jesus return. I think where we would find disagreement is how we should respond.
            If indeed we are in a war, then we must fight. You cannot win a war with simply one little strategy. To think otherwise is to ignore history.
            For example, if you were a soldier in WW2 and had the opportunity to stop the genocide of millions of Jews, but you were of the same mind as you are now, what would you have done? Prayed?
            To interpret the Bible as a one dimensional tool is to ignore its power. The word of God is living and active.
            You certainy would not apply your thought processes to the raising of your children. If you have children, you taught them the law, which acted as a tutor, until the day they could be born again.
            Passivity is a high minded concept that has very little value in the day to day.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Hey, like I said…you asked.

          • Greg Lewis

            Joe, it is unfortunate that you won’t address my points or answer my questions. It leads me to believe that you are less than sincere when it comes to debating something like this. A true thoughtful Christian would want to have an open honest discussion regarding the issue that you brought up.

            I have neither insulted you or flippantly dismissed you, but rather I have addressed in a three dimensional way, a very thoughtful response to your arguments using logic, history, and most importantly the Word of God.

            In your comments I see that you have a very specific way of believing and wish to get it out there over and over again. I have not taken the passages out of context, and have even addressed it from a historical and cultural context as well.
            By your logic, Christians should have never started orphanages, provided counseling to girls considering abortions, started adoption organizations, hospitals, feeding programs, homeless shelters, or anything else that would entangle us with this world. Rather we should have just told them about Jesus. It seems as if you are bordering on Gnosticism.

          • Allan Hamilton

            And yet, to prove your point, you use the term “son” in a completely aggressive and belittling manner. So where does bullying fall in your list of behaviors one is to refrain from?

            Retaliation for the slanders and insults one is sure to receive as a Christian (which seemed to be Marie’s original point) is revenge.

            Why did Christ tell his disciples to sell your cloak and buy a sword?
            Why did Christ whip the money changers?
            Sorry man, but you are a fool if you think Christ just wants us to sit around and be whipped like dogs for our belief in Him.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Yes, there is such a thing as righteous indignation. We are to judge righteous judgment, not hypocritical judgment.

            Ecc 3 isnt giving instructions. It was written by the Wisest man to walk the earth. Simply stating, there is a time for everything. Your passive interpretation of scripture is dangerous indeed. Enjoy your overlords.

            Christ walked the earth as a man…the author of Ecclesiastes was wiser than Christ?

          • R.C.

            See. You misinterpret scripture..again.

            You know Solomon wrote Ecc 3 right?

            You know Jesus was God made Flesh, right?
            Jesus Christ still had the knowledge and power of God, as he is part of the Trinity, simply made flesh.

            Solomon was the wisest man to walk the face of the earth cannot compare to the Creator of the universe wlking the earth in flesh.

            Again, you have shown yourself to be an idiot and void of logic and a failure to understand the teachings of Christ and the Holy Scripture.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            I know all that. I also know this:

            When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it; when we are slandered, we answer kindly. We have become the scum of the earth, the garbage of the world—right up to this moment.

            Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.

            Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for
            His wrath. For it is written: Vengeance belongs to Me; I will repay, says the Lord.

            Alexander the metalworker did me a great deal of harm. The Lord will repay him for what he has done.

            Here’s a question for you: since Solomon and Paul were inspired by the same God who cannot contradict Himself, and since one cannot follow Paul’s inspired instructions to NOT retaliate while following Ecclesiastes as permission TO retaliate…which one do you follow since you cannot follow both? Both are equally inspired by the same God but they are 180 degrees opposed. Which one do you obey?

          • R.C.

            According to your logic, our Founding Fathers disobeyed God’s will.

            That’s a debate many Christians have wrestled with for years. We are told to obey the authorities (Romans 13) and follow their laws (Peter) and never told to overthrow the government. Look at the Chinese church if want to talk about persecution.

          • R.C.

            Christ instructed us to Render unto Caesar. Do we keep rendering with out consequence when our renderings are supporting Abortion and other violations of our God Given Rights?

            So do we “follow the laws of the land” if they advocate murder?

          • DefCon99

            I don’t have the answer. There is great debate on all of that. I believe the Founding Fathers were justified with the War for Independence.

          • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

            Here’s a good example of quoting the “new, ‘hip’ versions”:

            2 Timothy 4:14 (KJV)
            Alexander the coppersmith did me much evil: the Lord reward him according to his works:

            Evil is worse than harm. You can harm someone, without having an evil intent. Evil is evil. Iniquity, wickedness. Watered down versions don’t even scratch the surface.

            I would obey Jesus, the new covenant.
            Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second.

            Soloman may have been the ‘wisest man’ on earth, but even he fell away. He was only wise in the fact that he prayed to God to help him rule:
            KJV 1 Kings 3:7
            And now, O Lord my God, thou hast made thy servant king instead of David my father: and I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.

            And further:

            KJV 1Kings 3:9 Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?

            10 And the speech pleased the Lord, that Solomon had asked this thing.

            11 And God said unto him, Because thou hast asked this thing, and hast not asked for thyself long life; neither hast asked riches for thyself, nor hast asked the life of thine enemies; but hast asked for thyself understanding to discern judgment;

            12 Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee.

            13 And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.

            14 And if thou wilt walk in my ways, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as thy father David did walk, then I will lengthen thy days.

        Joe, there is such a thing as righteous indignation. Jesus never told us not to get angry. Besides, if you’re a true Christian, you realize that wicked people are influenced by evil spirits, just as Christians have the Holy Spirit. It’s those evil spirits Christians rail against, not the people themselves, Hate the sin, love the sinner. As Christians, we are not perfect either; we sin everyday, and we would be foolish to think otherwise. There is none good, no not one, except your Father in Heaven.

        • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

          K, I never once said anything about not getting angry or being sinless. And I pretty much agree with all you said. My whole and only point is that believers who claim the name of Christ are told that if we do get angry (and we do, justifiably or not), we are NOT to sin. Taking thought of retaliation for its own sake – revenge – IS sin because God has forbidden us as individuals that liberty. That’s HIS job.

          That’s been my only point.

        See, this is the real reason nobody wants to be a Christian. Who the hell wants to be nice? NOBODY. Being nice gets you NOWHERE. The sooner you realize this, the better.

        • $2634156

          Marie, no one is telling you to “be nice” when attacked. It IS an effective way to get what you want, however as the old adage goes “you catch more flies with honey than you do with vinegar”. In Romans 12:19-21 Paul tells us, “Dearly
          beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

          Christians are NOT doormats. But we do know that we belong to and serve an all powerful and sovereign Lord in Jesus, who can take care of us a lot better than we can care for ourselves. We let Him do just that.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          Jesus told us about pseudo-Christians, such as yourself, lol. Maybe you’ll find your way back, maybe you won’t. Jesus will decide that.

        • 44Grim

          You really don’t care if you go to hell?

          I forgot, weak people use self restraint, take time to let their emotions cool down before throwing fits and can let things roll off their back.

          I care what they call me as much as I care what you just said about me. If it’s true, shame on me. If it’s not, shame on you/them.

          It’s not about being nice, and apparently you didn’t even CHECK which scriptures I referenced. I can be nice to someone and be an absolute ass. That’s why I referenced 1 Corinthians 13. I’ll add Romans 13:8-10.

          8 Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law. 9 The commandments, “You shall not commit adultery,” “You shall not murder,” “You shall not steal,” “You shall not covet,”[a] and whatever other command there may be, are summed up in this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”[b] 10 Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.

        • 44Grim

          To clarify, I’m not ‘going after’ you. I believe that unbelievers will act like unbelievers, their fruit gives them up. What they do no longer surprises me. There IS a certain way believers are to act, and if the church doesn’t cleanse itself, we act just like society, making no difference in the world at all.

          • DefCon99

            Why are Christians shocked that unbelievers mock us. Why are we surprised that sinners are out there sinning?

          • 44Grim

            Christians can’t stop sinning, but when a non-believer acts out, we act shocked… It’s much easier on me not expecting them to act right. Easier to love them where they are, too.

          • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

            Okay. Just remember what Christ said (and this is in context, too):

            For with what judgment YOU judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you. (Matthew 7:1-2)

            If you want to judge me by my alleged misuse of His Word, go ahead. Just keep in mind that means your own use of His Word had better be 100% accurate in your handling and in your motivation. If it isn’t , you’ll be judged for it by Him.

      • Marie

        I deleted my original comments because I just want to say this: it’s great that you have the patience of Job and everything, but I don’t.

        Besides, these people take any criticism – even if it isn’t vengeful in the least – as passing “judgment” on them. I am not going to censor myself just to make some people feel better. If they don’t want to be Christian because of that, then that’s their problem, not mine.

        • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

          Marie, in my opinion, and in my experience, the best you can do for someone is tell them you will pray for them. I can guarantee, nothing gets those indwelling demons and spirits more riled up than that…

          I remember talking to a lady, about God’s will and if I somehow got shot and robbed in the store I work at, and she said what if she happened walked in the store and decided not to help me. I kept telling her that whatever happened, God was allowing it, that it was God’s will. She scoffed, and when I tried handing her my Bible to look at, she cringed, as if I were holding out a venomous snake to her.

          It’s very obvious. You should try it some time, I’ve had all manner of outbursts directed at me for my faith, but I can also say that those people still talk to me to this day, and politely. I simply attribute it to the oppression of evil spirits. It’s easier when you understand that we are ALL empty vessels… to start.

    I am reading through these posts and I am really angered by what I am seeing. Before we can make peace with the atheists we must make peace between our denominations. Personally I am Catholic and, as a Catholic and theology and history student, I feel I have chosen the right denomination but that is my view and I strongly believe we need to put our differences aside and respect those differences. We are all Christians let’s not forget that.

    • http://musterion.typepad.com/blog/ Joe Dokes

      Jessica, I wish I could agree but you are mistaken. If we have two contradictory Gospels – and we do – then one of us is wrong, or both of us are, but we can’t both be correct. Sorry, I wish it were otherwise. Grace to you.

      • Jessica

          Christians fearing for their temporal earthly lives – which are soon enough perishing anyway whether by persecution, disease, accident or old age (no news there, it’s always been thus) – is the more important issue than one’s eternal destiny, Heaven or the Lake of Fire?

          • Jessica

            I was so sure that this hate between Christian denominations could be resolved in the 21st century through mutual respect of our love for Christ but I was wrong. Thank you for being someone that we should all aspire to be in this age of Christian intolerance.

          • Finrod Felagund

            Thank you, and I’m glad to see that you at least understand. As far as I’m concerned, if you’re a Christian, no one else has the right to tell you how to walk with Jesus. We’re all individuals, and God relates to each of us individually, and just because one thing works or doesn’t work for me doesn’t mean it’ll be the same way for you.

            Obviously there are certain extreme things that are pretty clearly not Christian– as South Park had Pope Benedict XVI put it, “I’m pretty sure killing Jesus is not very Christian!”– but in the end, we all answer to God, not to anyone else.

            It doesn’t matter if you’re Catholic, or Coptic Christian, or Anti-Missionary Baptist, the most important thing is and always is your relationship with Jesus, and in the end that’s between you and Him, not you and anyone else.

          • 44Grim

            Finrod, should the church not regulate itself, or should it allow ‘the world’ to tell them what’s right and wrong?

            Matthew 7:1 is the most misquoted scripture in the world.

            It’s also funny, since 7:5 says to clean your own eye, THEN help clean your brother’s eye.

            It is nonetheless true.

            Just limiting this to you and I, we have two very contradictory paths to salvation. One of us must be wrong and so is dead in sin right where we sit, and already judged by God lest we see the Light and repent. But we are not and cannot both be right with God given what each of us believes now. It’s impossible.

            You may find that an uncomfortable fact to face, but it is a fact. Again…grace to you and yours.

            and logic tells you that only money leads to evil, right? Surely lust and power also lead to all kinds of evil? If that translation were it, all money should be shunned by Christians. That’s not Biblical.

            Even in the story of the Rich young man, he walked away sad, but the story isn’t finished. It’s not an indictment against money, it’s an indictment against loving money. The young man may have walked away sad knowing how much his faith would now cost him and then went and sold everything. We generally assume he doesn’t, but there’s no proof either way.

    On expressing her hatred for Conservatives:

    “I love everybody,..except u right wing f**kin morons,”

    Funny how I don’t remember any of Barkin’s defenders bemoaning her vitriolic tweets (“I love everybody,..except u right wing f**kin morons” being the most memorable). Oh, but that would require consistency, and we can’t expect that from Barkin or her defenders. I mean, we really can’t.

    As for Barkin, let her bitch and moan. Her attempt to be remotely relevant was deemed not good enough for NBC. That’s more damaging than anything else that could be said about that Romero zombie. Oh, sorry. Was that too vitriolic? My mistake…

    Ellen…being a Christian doesn’t mean what you think it means…

    “Blah blah vitriol blah blah blah…” Egh…really, find a new word. I hear/read the word “vitriol” and I’m instantly done listening/reading; 99% of the time that word is used it’s by a hypocritical (duh) leftist with a holier than thou attitude screaming “racist!” or some such nonsense because someone has dared challenge them with facts. “Blah vitriol blah blah vitriol blah blah…” Enough already.

  • RedSoloCup

    Ellen, STFU and go back to reading your latest issue of Rolling Stone with the terrorist on the cover.

    “we all breathe the same air , eat,need water ,,, more people have been killed over religion than anything else , hate it”

    Communism would like a word with you, sir.

    She’s pissed because her pitiful TV show was canceled. Lack of interest.

  • Magnifico

    Atheism is a weird religion. Gotta hand it to them, though. They’re foamers.

  • Magnifico

    Ever notice that has-been celebrities are the most outspoken?

  • Kathy Fugitt Price Skaggs

    It’s not like anyone even knows who Ellen Barkin is anymore. Beside the only hate we see is coming from her followers not Christians. But I guess she doesn’t understand that no one believe her rants concerning christians but her. She will just have to get over herself. I am a christian and I just feel really sorry for her she is lost and so angry it is so sad.

  • TXKracker

    Yet another ” worn-out has been” that is an embarrassment to humanity

  • Bruce

    Ms. Barkin is a great woman of faith…you see, it takes as much faith (I would say, more) to believe that there is NOT a God, than to believe there is. In fact, just observing the world around her, there must be, at least, a miniscule part of her that keeps reminding her of the possibility of a Creator. However, there is an evidential aspect of OUR faith, whereas, she is merely flailing at the wind. This is why she, and others like her, castigate Christians. Ms. Barkin must project her own hatred and bitterness upon we who do believe, so that her own conscience is re-assured.

    “I do not hesitate to say it is a general fact that when men kick against true religion and when they get offended by being spoken to about it, if you could track them home you would find in their conduct some very good reason for their opposition. . . It is usually so. There is a reason for men being angry with the Gospel and turning away from it, because it strikes at some of their favorite sins . . .When you who are living in unchastity and dishonesty speak badly of Christ and of Christians, you only speak after your own manner—and we cannot wish you to alter your tone till God has changed your heart!” C.H.S.

  • PlanoGirl

    I’m still baffled as to what violent and vitriolic tweets she’s talking about? And who says they’re from “Christian Cons”? Me thinks she’s making up stuff just so she can put this crap out there. Hmm…the ones threatening George Zimmerman’s family? The ones that say the jurors should go home and kill themselves?

    • Kevin Scott

      Uh oh. Ellen forgot to take her blue pill again.

  • TYPE O NEGATIVE

    I’m an atheist but respect other people’s beliefs. I like Christmas decorations. I don’t like the idiots that put signs up saying they don’t believe and telling others not to. Everyone just needs to do what makes them happy.

    Why this alcoholic bitch is saying Christians spread violent hate, during a week where blacks have been going ape all week threatening everyone who disagrees with them, I’ll never know.

  • Doreen Beisel

    Suggest the entertainment industry look into the redoing of Match Game and The Love Boat. Back in the 1970s and 1980s these two shows employed every drugged out,alcoholic, has-been actor in Hollywood. Look at it this way it provides a few bucks to Barkin in a job which does not involve her laying on her back and spreading her legs and keeps the fool off Twitter

  • Marie

    What racket? The most influential part of our culture is the entertainment industry, and that is most certainly NOT controlled by Christians.

  • Marie

    See, and you wonder why I get so vitriolic?

    Go take a long walk off a short pier. Ooh, that was so ‘unChristian’ of me! So the eff what.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Transubstantiation.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Don’t pay any attention to old Swagbag. He’s just using the tried and true “you’re persecuting us by claiming you’re persecuted” ruse so common among his ilk.

  • Marie

    Oh, okay. Heh.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Don’t let the acolytes from the Religion of Anti-Theism™ get you down, Marie. Like little bullies on the playground, they just love to get folks worked up for their own entertainment, but they really have nothing to offer to the world.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Heh…he said “fact.”

  • TocksNedlog

    That IS pretty powerful, especially when you consider the fact that only 15% of the population in Africa is Catholic.

    You either follow God’s Word or you don’t. And God says homosexuality is a sin. It also says we are to love the sinner and hate the sin. Just because imperfect modern man-made society made it NOT a sin doesn’t mean we turn our back on the perfect Word of God. In fact most if not all of our modern day problems are the result of humans turning their backs on what God wants: do not lie-cheat-steal-murder-lust after your neighbor’s spouse….it’s all there.
    God made each of us with free will: some of us will choose to live the best they can following God’s Word, and others will choose to deliberately reject God and His teachings. Doesn’t really matter which one you choose, because God wins in the end anyway (see Revelation) and by then it will be too late for anyone who wasted their lives rejecting and fighting Him.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    “They continue to spread their hatred towards the gay community with Christian pseudoscience that says children do better with a mother and a father.”

    LOL

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Or become an atheist. They just get control and kill 100,000,000 people. Fun folks, them.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Well of course it is. I mean, when those scientists jumped into their time machine and went to see the first microscopic rock magically become a cell….

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Tired, overused, ineffective argument. I’ll give you a D- for effort, though.

  • Howzah123

    They do actually

    They killed in the name of eugenics, Darwin, Materialism and yes Atheism. In China Christians were some of the first to be targeted and murdered. These Atheists put Mao’s image in the place of Jesus.

    Atheists are religious. They erect false idols in the place of the Most High, whether it be movie stars, politicians, or themselves. That’s the great deception. By denying the existence of God and attempting to ascend man into Godhood, they are actually worshiping Satan. As Crowley said “Do what thou wilt is the whole of the law”

    Whether you want to believe it or not, you have been deceived. Repent and accept Jesus Christ into your heart as your Lord and Savior. It’s not too late to save your soul.

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Oh, you are talking about adaptation, or microevolution. I can buy that, and it is still consistent with all design theory. I was talking about macroevolution. No matter how much scientists want to prove evolution, we’ve no evidence of one species “evolving” into another.

    Either way, until one has empirical evidence where the origin of that first “spark” of life came from, it’s a dead heat in the creation/evolution race. We’re just stuck with deciding the tale in which we will place our faith.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    I conducted experiments. I found those experiments were consistent with the fact that you are delusional and emotionally attached to your faith in “Evolution.”

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Does that mean that Ryan’s the “Missing Link”?

  • Grandma HeadInjury

    Well, by definition, “evolving” involves an development of an organism from a simple to a more complex form. I don’t know that Ryan meets the directional standard….

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Ah yes, there is that, isn’t there.

  • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

    Don’t forget the football teams, Howzah!

    Christians are being killed daily TODAY in Egypt and other Islamic-centric countries, coming soon to an America near you.

    Pamela Geller literally saved Rifqa Bary’s life or else the latter would have been “honor” killed by her Islamic family when she converted to Christianity.

    Of course that doesn’t fit the govt run media’s lies that Ellen BarkingMad is blinded by, so nothing-to-see-here-please-move-along…
