Christians would you react like this if a Non-Christian had been staying at your

Everything's ngodlyDark sided

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3mDLsyn6ns

UPDATE:Basically this was from a American reality TV show where the wives of two families get swapped for a week and get to decide how $50,000 will be spent on the other family. In this case a pious Christian woman got swapped with a wife from a non-religious New Age spiritual family who to the Christian woman's horror not only not christians but also practiced things such as Astrology and Tarot card readings and many other things that she deemed "Not Of God", "Tainted" and "Dark-sided" (pronounced "Dooark Sided"). This is her returning to her house and screaming at her family about her ordeal at the non-christian familes house and how the presence of an "Ungodly" and "Dark-sided" person at her house is so horrible for her and how she refuses to accept the money (although she accepts it later) because it is "tainted".

Holy mother-fucking FUCK!! What the actual hell was her problem? I don't understand what that show was, but unless she had to gnaw off her own toes, she has NO EXCUSE! Someone slap her PLEASE!

It seems like it might have been part of the show "Wife Swap." I haven't seen it, but I think they send a wife/mother from one family and have her live with another family and vice versa. Then film it and show on TV. Sounds like they found the combo they wanted.

The show was called "Trading Spouses" this was from 2005.

Christians are hospitable, in at least some sort of way. So no, I would not act this way.

Christians are hospitable even to those who are evil. We are under the law of grace, now.

That was a Christian, sounds like you are wrong. At least you wouldn't act that way.

Christians do not act non-hospitable. People are sinful, though, which means that she could have been a Christian, while this be her sinful nature acting up.

No, I wouldn't react like what she was doing.

So you wouldn't feel uncomfortable at all with a non-Christian with an interest in stuff like Psychics and Astrology being in your house and around your children (if you had them)?

Side: Yes, so Doark Sided!

Yep I wouldn't feel uncomfortable because I know that I believe in Christ and He is greater then the Psychic and Astrology stuff that the person knows about.

This thread is a hasty generalization fallacy. One woman picked out for "reality" TV (presumably due to her proclivity for conflict) does not reflect upon the Christian population or the Christian faith.

It would be as well if I were to ask all the atheists if they would exterminate 50M people if they were elected President. After all, Mao did it and he was an atheist.

Side: Nope:)

But Mao didn't do what he did in the name of Atheism, he just was some one who did bad things who happened to be an atheist. Where as this woman is behaving in this way because she is a Christian.

And this is considering this is one of the most minor bad things a Christian has done in the name of there religion when you compare it to there persecutions of Jews and other minorities, sacrilegious destruction and defacement of other faiths' places of worship, witch hunts, genocides and holy wars through out history.

Didn't he? The cultural revolution which killed tens of millions included the execution of massive numbers of Christians, Muslims and other religious adherents in order to "modernize" china. Remember that socialism requires atheism as part of its philosophy, so if you are exterminating the religious here, it is be default in the name of atheism.

Mao was quite explicit in his attempts to wipe out religious followers or writers as part of his transformation. The ideology Mao was forcing upon China had socialist aspects to it and atheist belief aspects to it, so to argue it wasn't in the name of atheism is somewhat incoherent.

Now, maybe we can argue that Mao wasn't representative of atheist thought. Perhaps that is valid, but the same argument can be made for the woman in the show offered. That is why I pointed out this was a Hasty Generalization fallacy.

And this is considering this is one of the most minor bad things a Christian has done in the name of there religion when you compare it to there persecutions of Jews and other minorities, sacrilegious destruction and defacement of other faiths' places of worship, witch hunts, genocides and holy wars through out history.

All of which are massively trumped by the same actions taken by secular governments in the name of secular progress.

The inquisition was terrible, but it only averaged about 14 deaths a year. Pol Pot averaged 750,000 a year, specifically in the name of atheism (Pol Pot specifically advocated a move towards agrarian socialism and away from local tradition and religion, those found practicing any religion were executed on the spot).
