Remember when Chris Crocker defended Britney Spears in this tearful, screaming, epic video? Well he’s back with more emo in this tearful, screaming rant against Christians who insult Chris’ purpose or meaning.

I admit I laughed when I first watched it (wide-eyed, drama-shocked, nervous laughter). The crown of thorns? Wow. God instructs people to brush their teeth? Okeedoke.

I played it again and realized that beneath the hysterics, there is a worthy, relevant message. How could any Christian (or non-christian, but the video is about believers) point a finger at someone who’s different and off the beaten path of social acceptability and claim to know anything about how god feels about them or what god would want them to do? It is intensely arrogant that anyone could claim to speak for an infinite, unexplainable, unimaginable deity. If this god is so large and so all-powerful and all-knowing and all-loving, then how could one man, book, tradition, or creed even grasp one minute speck of an idea about what god is or wants?

” How could any Christian (or non-christian, but the video is about believers) point a finger at someone who’s different and off the beaten path of social acceptability…”

I think that their tendency to force conformity on issues seemingly unrelated to the myth shows that many of their leaders/thinkers prioritize worldly control over spirituality. That is, most of the religious are content to be led and some portion of the leaders are not really concerned with leading people toward the spiritual ideals put forth by jesus but rather toward their subjective ideas of what’s moral. So, I guess I’m saying, they ain’t in it for the jeesus love anymore than politicians are in it for love of the people. Really, even many of the followers are just there to shamelessly network I think…

Nice post, when I was religious, I felt enormous pressure to fit in. Glad I walked out of that more than a year ago.

I’ll be the first to admit that Crocker can be a bit overly-theatrical and dramatic at times, but he’s really got a valid point.

Unfortunately, for many people, it takes the shedding of their belief system for them to truly embrace and place real value on other human beings in all their diversity.

God does not tell him any of that stuff he listed. It’s not biblical. If we are talking about the God of the bible as hypthetically true then we must treat the bible as hypothetically true. The God of the bible does not tell Chris to brush his teeth. Nor does the God of the bible tell Christians to go around telling people not to dye their hair. Dentists tell Chris to brush his teeth and shame on any Christian who is busy telling people how to live out the details of their lives. As a Christian I do not presume to know even a fraction of everything about God or his intricacies. But if the God of the bible is true, the bible is true, and I can be sure of what little he reveals to us in that manner. God doesn’t want Christians to go make sure people vote republican or where appropriate clothing. My job is to tell people that God IS, what He HAS revealed to us, and WHAT that information means in a person’s life. And I’m sorry for all the “Christians” out there who have no love of Jesus or people. But please don’t judge God by the fake nutballs out there. The real Christians aren’t the ones telling you you should own a rifle or not wear makeup. The real ones are the ones who are so focused on loving you and other people they don’t have time to make jerks out of themselves.
