The Stench of John Calvin

Jim West has taken another of his silly jabs at “angry atheists” this time offering an improvisation of a quote by that complete stick-up-the-ass, control-freak, nut-case (but he was pre-destined to be that!) John Calvin. Here are West’s insights injected into  Calvin’s pathetic misrepresentation of “idolators”. I really don’t know why I read this crap…

Just as one who cleans toilets makes fun of the people who pinch their noses when he happens to be near them, because he has himself been in that filth so long that he does not notice that awful stench anymore; so those who worship images and have by this habit so the angry atheist has, by his sensless habit of disbelief, become so hardened to that the filth of disbelief think that they are he actually thinks that he is among the roses, and make fun of those who are bothered by the stench they themselves no longer notice.

At least we now know to turn down an invite to Jim West’s house!  Hmmm, it must smell pretty apalling… apologetic in there!

Well, if we are to do a little poo-flinging, here’s mine!

Just as one who cleans toilets makes fun of the people who pinch their noses when he happens to be near them, because he has himself been in that filth so long that he does not notice that awful stench anymore; so self-righteous Christians have, by their senseless habit of belief, become so hardened to the odors of  belief they actually think that they are among the roses, and so makes fun of those who have risen above outhouses, are decent enough to flush, and know what air freshener is for so no one else has to suffer.

    Cripes – Calvin was such a fascist piece of work, invoking him is practically worth a Godwin.

    I am intrigued by Jimbo’s visceral and unseemly disgust at atheism (or is it just “angry atheism” – I haven’t seen much of that). Bizarre – I know very few atheists who have a similar opinion of theism. Or even of such a certifiable crazy person as John Calvin. I mean, does he think atheists are *evil* or something? Weird.

    He just does it to wind people up and to appeal to the more conservative of his readers. Or his congregation. I take the bait just for fun.
