Stephen Baldwin, “actor” and evangelist, is currently appearing on the British version of Celebrity Big Brother. He’s providing everyone with memorable soundbytes.
If we’re from apes, why are the apes still here? If we evolved from apes, they would have died out…
But this next one isn’t just stupid, it’s frightening:
If someone pointed a machine gun at my daughter and said: “Say Jesus doesn’t exist” and if she turned to me and asked: “What do I do?”, I’d say: “What have I taught you to do?” And she’d say: “Jesus absolutely exists.” And I’d see her in heaven.
Umm… so, in other words, if a crazy man wanted to kill his daughter, Baldwin would rather have her killed than have her tell what he believes is a lie about Jesus.
I know that soundbyte is supposed to show what a “good Christian” he is and how “faithful” he is (as if that’s a virtue)… but all it shows me is that he’s unfit to be a parent.
What would I tell my daughter to do if some axe-wielding Christian wanted her to say “God exists”?
I’d tell her to say, “God exists.”
Then, I’d tell her to kick the scary man in the balls and run the hell away.
It’s not the first time I’ve heard of Christians willing to die (or let someone else die) rather than (temporarily) lie about their beliefs.
Telling a lie in this situation isn’t taking away from what you do believe. It’s just the smart thing to do in a horrific situation. That’s just common sense. Say what the maniac wants to hear, placate him, and get out of the jam if possible.
You don’t win any martyr points when you act like a fool.
