OUTRAGEOUS! Christians and Jews “Deserve To Be Locked Up”
A keynote speaker at a conference held at Harvard University made some shocking and terrible claims.
Activist Tim Wise, who claimed to be an anti-racist activist, made the claim that base their moral beliefs on the Bible should be locked up and that they should literally knock themselves out.
According to The College Fix,
Tim Wise, an “anti-racism writer, educator and activist,” has denigrated Christians as “Jeezoids and fascists and called Pope Francis evil. He has tweeted that “people who believe in a God of hell/damnation deserve to be mocked viciously and run out of the public square.”
Those who base their morality on the Hebrew Scriptures “deserve to be locked up,” he said in 2015, claiming to be “sorta kidding but not by much.”
The Diversity Dialogue Series provides a “retrospective look at diversity and inclusion, a discussion of current issues, and practical guidance on how we can move toward greater inclusion and belonging at Harvard,” according to the event description.
But you know what, let’s give him the benefit of the doubt, did he really say that?
According to his Facebook post, yes”
“This is America…people basing their beliefs on the fable of Noah and Ark, or their interpretation of Sodom and Gomorrah…rather than science or logic…If you are basing your morality on a fairy tale written thousands of years ago, you deserve to be locked up…detained for your utter inability to deal with reality…NO, we are not obligated to indulge your irrationality in the name of your religious freedom…but we will provide you a very comfortable room, against which walls you may hurl yourself hourly if your choose. Knock yourself out….seriously, knock yourself out, completely, for weeks at a time…I’m sorta kidding but not by much…I don’t believe lunatics like this should be locked up, but I do think they have to be politically destroyed, utterly rendered helpless to the cause of pluralism and democracy …the world is not theirs. They have no right to impose their bullshit on others. They can either change, or shut the hell up, or practice their special brand of crazy in their homes…or go away. Their choice. And this argument applies to any fundamentalist religionist of any faith who thinks they have a right to impose their beliefs on a secular, pluralistic society. Go away.”
Just where is this guy basing his morals to decide that the morals of Christians and Jews are wrong? And why isn’t he wrong if Christians and Jews say that he’s wrong?
