Someone go read this post from my former church’s youth group pastor and tell me how fucked up it is because I know it’s fucked up but I can’t word it.
Also fuck you former church, you make me angry.
Also, I am a very productive angry person, so fuck you doubly for not understanding the wonderful power of anger.
Fuck your joy.
It’s fucked up because anger is sometimes the only reasonable response. Even his precious Jesus got angry. And I bet if he saw Jesus flipping the moneylenders table it wouldn’t look like a reasonable response if you just casually saw it.
Plus they ignore the fact that sometimes it’s the church causing the anger and resentment. And you can’t turn to the Bible to deal with it in a righteous way because it makes you angry too.
Basically it’s ignoring that the causes of the anger are what he’s prescribing to fix it.
