If you are easily offended by very off-color remarks about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit you will want to skip this blog entry. I mean it. Skip it. If you don't skip it and you should have, you can't blame me. I'm just saying.
I recently made a post in a public forum that was a controversial discussion of Christian fiction authors including sex in their books. There was an overwhelming negativity and judgment of Christian authors who do this so I wanted to weigh in. Here is what I said...
"I write realistic stories about the messy world we live in and I let my
characters work through the issues in a moral way. For me, my morals
are based in Christianity - but I don't write about perfection. I write
about messes and how to heal. If you're interested here is my website
www.wendyoleston.com All Christians sin, Christians make mistakes,
Christians even make BIG mistakes. Christians have sex... watch porn...
do drugs... and God still loves them. That's what I write about - not to
glorify it but to give hope to the broken and help them find the
way to healing."
Not too long after I posted, I received a few responses.
One older Catholic male simply said, "I'll pass, thanks..."
I can respect that. Thank you Kevin B***. I have no problem with your response.
However... this OTHER gentleman who was offended by the idea of sex within a Christian book responded. He is one of those brave people who makes witty responses without using his name... but you see, I figured out how to find out who these brave people really are... so I know who he is and let me tell you, Fred M***... you should be ashamed of yourself.
Here is what anonymous Fred said...
"How about a gangbang with the Three Persons in God nailing Mary?"
Let me just spell this out for you in case you haven't caught what I just tossed at you...
Brave Fred, is offended by Christians who write about sex.
But brave Fred was comfortable saying THAT horrible thing.
I've been reading up on this subject, Christianity and sex, and let me tell you - it's ugly. I don't think I've ever seen Christians look more hideous and I'm embarrassed for them... for not seeing the hypocrisy in their nastiness. It saddens me greatly.
I really have nothing else to say except this...
Please forgive them, they know not what they do.
