Daily Show: Are Bigoted Christian Bullies Being Bullied By Bigots?

The Daily Show’s Samantha Bee investigates the phenomenon sometimes called “Christian Persecution Complex.” In this phenomenal clip from The Daily Show, Samantha Bee exposes the lie that Christians are being persecuted in this country, and instead shows that some factions of Christianity are the persecutors – using their religion to attack women, gays, minorities and those belonging to different religious groups. In fact, in the bizarre twisted world these people live in, tolerance and diversity equals bigotry…against THEM!

    Read about Floyd Corkins the FRC shooter then tell me who the bigot is.

    @AATTP well gay views get in the way of Christian rights. Look at the court cases where Christian cake makers refused to put same-sex couples on a cake for religious reasons. The court decided that the cake makers were in the wrong for using their freedom of speech and religion and made them pay the gay couples. In states where gays are allowed to use their freedom of speech the freedom of religion and speech is getting taken away from Christians. Not all Christians are bigots I also might add. The Bible teaches to love all people, but to hate all sin. Go to a church made of real Christians and you will find that they are the most loving non-judgmental people.

    We’ll discount the discussion about whether the daily show has any real value to any political discussion, so we’ll move on.

    Let’s see if we have this straight… your site, and all it’s contributors, routinely calls conservatives racist, sexist, homophobes, intolerant, bigots, etc., etc., and so on. And you are accusing Christians of hypocrisy?

    The irony is astounding. The difference is that Christians have their views – whether you agree with them or not – based on their religious convictions. So, essentially, you are attacking them for their religious views.

    • AATTP

      As long as their VIEWS don’t get in the way of other people’s RIGHTS, we’re fine. That’s not what happens though. Christians want to impose their will on the entire population based on religious beliefs. SOME Christians may be called names, like “bigot,” but their RIGHTS are not infringed upon. THAT is the difference, Hooper.

      Your willful ignorance is astounding.

        Not all Christians want to “impose their will on the entire population based on their religious beliefs”. I’m a Christian, and thanks to the Treaty of Tripoli, the First Amendment, and Thomas Jefferson’s words, I know beyond any shadow of a doubt the Founders intended our government to be religiously neutral (and in light of all the havoc religion had been wreaking in England and, later, the United Kingdom in the roughly two centuries before our country was founded, it’s easy to see at least some of their reason behind wanting church and state separate). Anyone who doesn’t like that our current government was intended by the Founders to be religiously neutral needs to shut up and a) accept reality or b) pack their bags and move to a country that’s more to their liking.

        • AATTP

          It was never meant to be a blanket statement about ALL Christians and I apologize if it seemed that way.

        • Lexi

          Personally I don’t like religion. You know what’s great about it?
          You get your religious beliefs, I get mine, and we can both live our own lives based on our preferences and desires. In peace.

          According to the likes of hooper, we are bigoted and I’m supposed to be tearing you apart and calling you racist just for your religion.

          Funny thing, when you don’t use your religion to defend racist, sexist, or homophobic actions, people tend not to call you racist, sexist, or homophobic.
          In fact, they tend to leave you alone or have a pleasant conversation.

          Really hilarious how that works, isn’t it?

          Funny how these sorts of things are never mentioned when the bigots whine about being persecuted. If you don’t persecute people, they wont fight back against you.

          **note some have been attacked to the point that everyone seeming similar will trigger them. This is true of blacks in the 60’s and 70’s, victims of rape throughout time, and religious and sexual minorities.
          However this reaction isn’t indicative of the behavior of most blacks, gays, or women, even ones that have been victimized in the past

        *Some* Christians want to impose their will, not all of us.

        • AATTP

          Understood.

      99.99999% of the Teapubs I talk to claim to be “Christian” and I, an agnostic, know more about what the Bible ACTUALLY says than any of them. Where they cherry pick and contort passages to make it say what they want it to say, I know what it REALLY does say.

      These “Christians” routinely tell me things like “I don’t hate Obama because he’s a npornr, I hate him because of his policies.” Nope, you’re right, no racism there. They refer to gays as fags, no homophobia there! They tell me that their “God” is the true God and that Muslims worship a “false” God. I won’t even bother to mention the names the call me when I point out to them that, “their God” is the same one that Muslims worship.

      No, I don’t attack Christians but then again I know very few. I do attack a$$holes who call themselves Christian but have no idea what the word means. If you think I’m going to apologize for calling a hypocrite a hypocrite you are sadly mistaken.

    • RichardR

      No, Hooper. Hypocrisy is when you’re criticizing someone else for doing the same thing you’re doing. When a group of people is, on average, OBSERVABLY sexist, homophobic, intolerant and bigoted, then it’s OK to say so as long as you’re not. That objective observation is a WEE bit different then trying to build national policy on the precept that a group of people are going to Hell based on no further evidence than a book and your belief in Hell.

      That being the case, if you want to see hypocrisy in action: AATP can call a group sexist and homophobic because AATP is self-evidently not a sexist and homophobic institution. However, people who scream that dead soldiers are going to burn in Hell might not have any right to say so on the basis that they’re probably going to burn in Hell for longer. See the difference?

      What part of standing up to intolerance is NOT intolerance do you not comprehend?

    • Joe Hill

      Oh, poor hooper. So put upon. Such a victim. If the shoe fits, wear it, you big baby.

    • http://www.facebook.com/paula.m.smolik Paula M Smolik

      ITS contributors, no apostrophe grrrrr The bible is full of bigoted, hateful views right from god. So there’s nothing wrong with attacking people for religious views.

      • http://www.facebook.com/chris.humphrey3 Chris Humphrey

        The problem is not the Bible. the problem is that hateful, stupid, angry, ignorant people use it as a weapon, instead of what it was meant to do. As a Christian, and gay, and liberal, I try to seek understanding with such ignorance. Inevitably, all I want to do is punch them in the face.

    • http://www.facebook.com/chris.humphrey3 Chris Humphrey

      The problem with your comment is that you conveniently leave out those who use their religion to persecute. If you REALLY want to do good, denounce them publicly. Otherwise, you’re supporting their bigotry, and therefore are a bigot. Yes, I said it. Supporting bigots makes you one.

    • Lexi

      I don’t want you telling me I can’t have birth control, or an abortion, or I can’t get my tubes tied, or I’m too young to know I don’t want kids, or that I can’t marry the people I love (I am pansexual and polyamorous, I have two love interests one of which is the same sex I am), or pushing your religion down my throat, down children’s throats etc all because of your BELIEFS. Have your beliefs, fine, just live them privately like your bible tells you to.

      Don’t try to make them into law, and don’t tell me what I can and can’t do based on it.

      Once you start taking ACTION to take away other people’s rights, it stops being about “belief” but about bullying, and theocracy, and it’s bad when you do it for the same reason it’s bad when al qaeda does it.

    I always love Sam’s pieces, she always hits the nail on the head and she has a great dead pan delivery. This piece is no exception.

    You have to love that this bigot didn’t seem to have any idea that she was making a complete fool of him. He honestly believes that it is bigotry against him and his religion when someone calls him on his bigotry. He can’t see the irony in that at all. To his way of thinking he is right and everyone who disagrees with him is wrong and that’s it.

    • AATTP

      I thought it was one of her best. The guy’s obliviousness when Samantha gets him to ADMIT condemning people to burn in eternal Hellfire is *kinda* bigoted was priceless!
