A lesson in Love and Tolerance (a spoof)

As I browse the internet I have noticed a lot of confusion concerning the concept of sin and morality. In fact, I have noticed some angry and judgmental words spoken against people who suggest that there is no such thing as universal morality, thus causing people to be judgmental, which of course is hateful and immoral. As a result, I am dedicating this post to clearing this up, once and for all. It’s all very simple, but please read carefully.

Now the first rule concerning sin is that it doesn't exist outside of your own life and the reality of that said life. This is true for all people, and binding so as to prevent any personal moralities from being imposed on another person that might not want that morality; because we know that would be immoral. As with all rules however, there are exceptions. The first exception is this: since something that is wrong for you is not necessarily wrong for someone else; It’s forbidden to forbid. There are exceptions it seems to this also in a general sense. The first exception is that it is forbidden to judge. Again there are exceptions to that one too. It is OK to judge people that do judge as being intolerant, which is a bad thing and so makes it immoral, which is OK I guess because to be immoral would require an overarching, objective reality, which will not be tolerated because it doesn't exist; which is why its forbidden in the first place, and so judged as oppressive; because overarching, objective realities don't exist, that is except for those exceptions fore-named, which are to be tolerated so that intolerance won’t be forbidden. Wait a minute... intolerance is forbidden, which means that not only can judging be forbidden, but also intolerance, which means that forbidding, and intolerance find themselves in the exception clause of the do not forbid rule above; making it OK to impose on another a non-existent non-objective and overarching morality; because since those things don't exist, i'ts OK to impose them, which makes it OK to judge those that do impose them as intolerant, and so also bigots.

But above all we are to love one-another and not hate. We know that hate is the result of intolerance and that only those that do try to impose their morality on others are ultimately capable of hating, unless the morality imposed is that we should love and not hate, which judged by the exceptions fore-mentioned would be impossible because of the prerequisite of an overarching morality; which is known not to exist, and so therefore is forbidden; thus will not be tolerated lest one be judged as a bigot; which I can't think of anything worse that that could happen to anyone, can you?

You see, its all very simple; so the next time you see any intolerant behavior suggest to that intolerant bigot that he be less hateful, and maybe suggest that he or she read this post so that perhaps he or she can get his or her mind straight!

Blessings.

Obfuscation for the sake of clarity. A literary paradox well done indeed, good sir.

"Now the first rule concerning sin is that it doesn't exist outside of your own life and the reality of that said life." Can you elaborate on what you mean? Where in Scripture do you get support for this? Thanks!

Thanks for coming by. Did you read the whole post? It's a parody.

janelle said...

That's why I didn't understand it! Ahhhhhh....sorry, as you can tell I have blond hair. *huge grin with a little bit irony*

Absolutley! Easier in principle than practice.

I have considered adding "a parody" to the title of this post because I'm not sure that many will read it much past the first paragraph. I would scoff at the same line that Janelle asked me about, which points to the reality that saying this sort of thing is not that uncommon; and not that un-neurotic either I might add. Boy, what does that say about our society?

I love this post. I had a professor in college who taught Western Civilization. I miss him because he loved to do this kind of parody. He was the rare professing Christian on staff and loved to cut the professing Atheists to pieces with their own post-modern jargon.

On the same note, I consider myself to be very tolerant of the intolerant. Does this make me super-tolerant or just Teflon?

Just wanted to add a thank you for everyone that's stopped by. I really appreciate your comments.

danny. my husband is vernon from lovetruthalways.blogspot.com and he asked me to tell you how to link on your posts...i just taught him and he thought i would explain it better to you! okay if you are posting a new blog, above where you type the post are some icons (spell check, picture insert etc) one of them looks like a world with a chainlink infront of it. this is the "link" icon. in your post type the word 'Here' or whatever word you want to link. Highlight the said word and click the link icon. A box will pop up that allows you to put the address of the page you want to link. If you have anymore questions or this doesnt make much since let me know! thanks for visiting vernons blog!

A favorite pastor of mine once said: "The only virtue put forth by a lawless society is tolerance."

I was a little confused by this post until I read the comments. Thanks to Janelle for being blond.

A very good post. I remember a few years ago, before the "gay" talk got so blatant and was featured on every TV show, etc. a friend of mine talking to me about his son, who was just moving out into his first apartment and wanting to get a male room mate to share expenses. He was met with these looks and raised eyebrows and yet at the same time there was nothing wrong with two young girls the same age and circumstances sharing the cost of an apartment. It is such a shame men can't be truly friends and care very sincerely for each other without someone assuming they are gay.

I assume you are talking about the "Men loving Men" under the "Favorite Post" links. I agree that its totally different for girls.

Another thought that recently came to mind is the thought of damaged relationships between men and children as pedophilia moves closer to being "accepted". My immediate reaction as I write those words is "that'll never happen", but then again I remember saying that about homosexual marriage.
