Carrie Prejean, Bristol Palin and Christian Hypocricy

It seems that Mel Gibson is getting flack for having an extra-marital affair. This, of course, is something that never happens in Hollywood, but in Mel's case, it was made newsworthy because he is Catholic. Not just Catholic. He's actually a practicing Catholic.

Carrie Prejean continues to be crucified because she's a Christian who posed for topless photos. Nevermind that she was never really topless. She was wearing a vest which was supposed to cover up her personal parts, but the photographer couldn't resist taking photos against Ms. Prejean's wishes whenever he could sneak a peek.

And of course, there's Bristol Palin, unwed and baby in tow, talking abstinence. The left can't figure out what credible message she might be able to deliver to other teenage girls about the responsibilities one takes on when becoming a mother. They only see hypocrisy.

I think we get it. These Christians are all hypocrites and you on the left are not.

Those who point this out foolishly think the argument ends there. They miss the point that to be a hypocrite you need to have standards. Without standards, you cannot fail to meet them. 

Being imperfect beings, we are all going to fail. The fact that we actually keep trying is what makes us human. The character of a Christian is that we work to please God and live by the standards He has set. Anyone who has read the Bible understands that we are not perfect, and never will be. Becoming a Christian doesn't negate our humanness, with all of its frailties and faults.

The difference is, we know what standards God has set, and we strive to achieve them. 

There are folks who are hypocrites from day one. Those who never have standards to violate, but who want to hold others to a standard. The Hollywood left who thinks they they are superior to Mel Gibson because they can commit adultery without having a guilty conscience, for example.

The media, of course, would rather focus on those who try and fail, than those who never try in the first place, as if it's better to admit that you're just scum and then revel in it. Larry Flynt exemplified that kind of hero. He was a man without values who delighted in the failings of others, but also admitted to having sex with a chicken.

Talk about a lack of standards. That chicken is a skank.

Outstanding post- when your moral standards essentially boil down to "anything goes", "if it feels good, do it" and other moral relativist twaddle, then it's hard to condemn someone for not living up to that.

Bravo, Ms Shore!

The old goosestepper Saul Alinsky stated "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counteract ridicule. Also it infuriates the opposition, which then reacts to your advantage." Rules on Tactics # 5, [Rules for Radicals - 1971].

Ms Shore rises above that. This is the one weakness of the Neo-Marxist Left: a complete lack of ethics. If you wish to justify theft-as-taxation, every other moral needs to be tossed out.

Final remark. Its passing strange the Fascist Left would feel a need for rules if they worship the false god of Power.

I'm sorry Miss Shore. I Ms-spelled your title.

That's Okay, Bob. But Mizty Seashore, doesn't make as much sense as Misty Seashore.

Great post - very well said. Thank you!!
Being a practicing Christian does not mean that you claim to be "perfect" never making any mistakes - as we know there was only one perfect person who lived on the earth, it means you are trying to become more like Him and as we live, we learn from our mistakes and receive forgiveness for our mistakes. That's the beauty of being Christian we are striving for something better.

That's why they call it practicing Christianity, not perfecting it. The assumption from those who lack the wherewithal to implement morals is that Christians have carte blanche to the Kingdom of God without needing to put forth effort so when a Christian falters, for the heathen, it's like carrion to a kill.

The left will never understand Christianity. It isn't about being perfect,but forgiving for those who have made mistakes,but willing to learn from them. It is about trying to be the best person you can be,even with all the flaws you are born with or mistakes you have done in the past,possible even the future.

The left will continue to blast Christians. But we know who the closed minded people really are.
