In the opening, Dr Youssef types: “The Washington National Cathedral, in its commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, has deliberately and carefully excluded evangelicals from their multi-religious commemoration. The service includes Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims, but not evangelical Christians. Mind you, I am opposed to interfaith services in any shape or form and that is why, in a previous blog, I stated that I was relieved that the mayor of New York spared us the agony of watching the One, True God of the Bible ‘worshipped’ alongside false gods.”

The intolerance in this blog article is actually manifesting as intolerance, considering that title is “The intolerance of the tolerance preachers”. I will point out that, just on information gathered both on YouTube and other Christian evangelical websites including this one, the reason that you were not invited because when you get up in front of a group of people you and others like you find it an opportunity to preach about the “sins” of homosexuality and/or abortion when the two subjects have absolutely nothing to do with comforting people suffering from a horrible and terrible sudden loss of their loved ones. You say you preach tolerance in the article, toward the end, when in the opening you slam other religions as “worshiping false gods”. What you are saying is not tolerance, but intolerance not matter how you paint it up to be.

Dr. Jeremiah says: “‘They’ve invited every faith community, except the evangelical Christians, who happen to represent 23 percent of the religious community in America,’ Jeremiah reports. ‘Now, if that doesn’t help you understand what’s going on, then nothing will. We preach tolerance for everybody in this nation, and we have tolerance for everyone — except evangelical Christians.'”

That is not a very large percentage of Americans, especially when you consistently say that the “homosexual community makes up only 2% of the population”. Again, I repeat: Evangelicals were not invited because every time they are given a microphone, they use it as a forum to preach their intolerant, bigoted, wholly ignorant religious spew. They were not invited because this gathering is not about preaching, but about comforting the masses in a time of need and a time of great sorrow. Evangelicals by default press upon everyone else their tenets, faith, and intolerance. I totally understand why another reason why you were not invited: among the many who have suffered the loss of the terrorist attacks are countless LGBT people who really don’t need to hear how “sinful” their “lifestyle” is on the anniversary of their loved one’s death.

Evangelicals, typically, are not ones to be very tolerant of anything other than what their tunnel visions allow them to see and are very insulated against the reality that surrounds them. They are eagerly ignorant and remain so because all knowledge that is remotely contrary to their beliefs, no matter how much real proof and substantial evidence is mountainous that clearly debunks their intolerant beliefs, prejudice, and ridiculous fairy tales they struggle so rigorously to cling to. That which they are unable to understand in favor for the stark white and black morality that is unreal, unreasonable, and irrational. The superiority complex they have created for themselves is inflexible to tolerance of any kind that goes against their convictions that are misplaced, misguided, and rooted in misogyny. The whole world is viewed as black and white absolutes, all the while being completely contradictory to their very own rules when it serves their purpose. The virtual truth of it all is they live in a false reality, a reality where only they are “right” and everyone else is very “wrong”.

Their slip is showing, the “underwear” they “wear” is revealed as hypocrisy. They say they preach tolerance are tolerant, when in fact they are not. Tolerance is defined as: noun 1 a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one’s own; freedom from bigotry 2. a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one’s own, 3 interest in and concern for ideas, opinions, practices, etc., foreign to one’s own; a liberal, undogmatic viewpoint 4 the act or capacity of enduring; endurance: My tolerance of noise is limited, 5 Medicine/Medical, Immunology a) the power of enduring or resisting the action of a drug, poison, etc.: a tolerance to antibiotics, b) the lack of or low levels of immune response to transplanted tissue or other foreign substance that is normally immunogenic. How are any of the Evangelical views even remotely tolerant? I don’t think the word means what they think it means, which clearly is the result of twisting and manipulating the reality around them. Constantly, they are pulling the “slip” back up away from the hem of their outer garments, revealing the stockings of Dominionism (which is my next post). Their modesty is virtually non-existent, all the time they trumpet their causes laced with intolerance they mask as their own version of the action. It’s ridiculous and hypocritical. They point at how wronged they are without ever seeing how wrong they treat everyone around them.

Evangelicals not being invited to the terrorist attacks’ tenth anniversary is not only fair, but the right thing to do. No one wants to deal with your preaching and witnessing about subjects that have nothing to do the memorial moment that insult, hurt, and viciously attack people on a day of sorrow and mourning. That is unwelcome. The fact that they are unable to understand this only proves that they live in a religious surreality; a step, skip and piss shiver away from drinking the cyanide laced kool aid their leaders could suggest they partake in.
