Fake Christians: Meet my boss

Regular readers of my blog will know my story by now. Okay, let’s be honest. There aren’t any. Still, though, for some reason I feel the urge to continue. 🙂

I work at an ecommerce company. We basically drop ship stuff – that never touches our hands – from a warehouse to the customer.

Today I’d like to introduce my boss. The main thing you need to know about him is – he calls himself a Christian.

He holds himself up as a paragon of virtue. He watches FOX News. He is a conservative and thinks that Bush was mistreated for eight years and, therefore, it is acceptable to mistreat Obama, too. (That puts him in squarely with the Two-Wrongs-Make-A-Right crowd.) He calls me a Kool-Aid drinker because I voted for Obama.

None of that is particularly exceptional or unusual, though.

What really makes him stand out is fun stuff like this. He:

  • lies in print about the year his company was established
  • lies in print about how many customers he has
  • blatantly favors Christians over non-Christians in the work place
  • writes and prints fake customer testimonials
  • lies to avoid paying city fees
  • cheats on his taxes
  • puts down/insults non-Christians in the work place
  • holds himself up as morally superior

Yes, these are a few of the way he sets himself apart from your average bear. I seem to recall that “do not lie” made God’s top ten list. It boggles the mind watching how this guy morally justifies his behavior.

As you can imagine, it is hard to work for someone like that. It is even harder when your job description includes passing on some of those lies to people you meet. (That is one reason why I refer to myself as a “whore.”) I think in general good bosses should lead by example. In general it is better if they are someone you can look up to rather than not.

I can speak from experience that working for someone like this is not pleasant. I dread going to work and it’s like getting kicked in the face when I see his vehicle because I know he’ll be in the office.

Now don’t get me wrong. I’m not saying all Christians are bad. Most that I know are wonderful decent people. This isn’t about Christians. It’s about the hypocrisy of violating the morals you say you follow.

I guess that’s it. I don’t have any tidy little summation to wrap up this post, except, maybe to ask about your fake Christian stories. I’d love to hear all about them.

I can cite many examples, however, of violence in the other direction. Further I would hypothesize that the vast majority of anti-abortion violence is conducted in the name of religion.

      You cited an example of violence based on religion. Another example was then provided to you. Apparently you are emphasizing one while minimizing the other based on the particular religious points of view involved, rather than admitting that they are cut from the same cloth.

      1. Murders

        In the U.S., violence directed toward abortion providers has killed at least nine people, including five doctors, two clinic employees, a security guard, and a clinic escort.[5]

        * March 10, 1993: Dr. David Gunn of Pensacola, Florida was fatally shot during a protest. He had been the subject of wanted-style posters distributed by Operation Rescue in the summer of 1992. Michael F. Griffin was found guilty of Dr. Gunn’s murder and was sentenced to life in prison.
        * July 29, 1994: Dr. John Britton and James Barrett, a clinic escort, were both shot to death outside of another facility in Pensacola. Rev. Paul Jennings Hill was charged with the killings. Hill received a death sentence and was executed September 3, 2003.
        * December 30, 1994: Two receptionists, Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols, were killed in two clinic attacks in Brookline, Massachusetts. John Salvi, who prior to his arrest was distributing pamphlets from Human Life International,[6] was arrested and confessed to the killings. He died in prison and guards found his body under his bed with a plastic garbage bag tied around his head. Salvi had also confessed to a non-lethal attack in Norfolk, Virginia days before the Brookline killings.
        * January 29, 1998: Robert Sanderson, an off-duty police officer who worked as a security guard at an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Alabama, was killed when his workplace was bombed. Eric Robert Rudolph, who was also responsible for the 1996 Centennial Olympic Park bombing, was charged with the crime and received two life sentences as a result.
        * October 23, 1998: Dr. Barnett Slepian was shot to death at his home in Amherst, New York. His was the last in a series of similar shootings against providers in Canada and northern New York state which were all likely committed by James Kopp. Kopp was convicted of Dr. Slepian’s murder after finally being apprehended in France in 2001.
        * May 31, 2009: Dr. George Tiller was shot and killed as he served as an usher at his church in Wichita, Kansas.[7]
        * Another doctor, George Patterson, was shot and killed in Mobile, Alabama on August 21, 1993, but it is uncertain whether his death was the direct result of his profession or rather a robbery.[8] [9]

        [edit] Attempted murder, assault, and threats

        According to statistics gathered by the National Abortion Federation (NAF), an organization of abortion providers, since 1977 in the United States and Canada, there have been 17 attempted murders, 383 death threats, 153 incidents of assault or battery, and 3 kidnappings committed against abortion providers.[10] The attempted murders were:[5][11][12]

        * August 19, 1993: Dr. George Tiller was shot outside of an abortion facility in Wichita, Kansas. Shelley Shannon was charged with the crime and received an 11-year prison sentence (20 years were later added for arson and acid attacks on clinics).
        * July 29, 1994: June Barret was shot in the same attack which claimed the lives of James Barrett, her husband, and Dr. John Britton.
        * December 30, 1994: Five individuals were wounded in the same-day shootings which killed Shannon Lowney and Lee Ann Nichols.
        * October 28, 1997: Dr. David Gandell of Rochester, New York was injured by flying glass when a shot was fired through the window of his home.[13]
        * January 29, 1998: Emily Lyons, a nurse, was severely injured, and lost an eye, in the bombing which also killed Robert Sanderson.

        [edit] Anthrax threats

        The first letters claiming to contain anthrax were mailed to U.S. clinics in October 1998, a few days after the Slepian shooting, and since then, there have been a total of 655 such bioterror threats made against abortion providers. None of the “anthrax” in these cases was real.[11][14]

        * November 2001: After the genuine 2001 anthrax attacks, Clayton Waagner mailed hoax letters containing a white powder to 554 clinics. Waagner was convicted of 51 charges relating to the anthrax scare on December 3, 2003.

        [edit] Arson, bombing, and property crime

        According to NAF, since 1977 in the United States and Canada, property crimes committed against abortion providers have included 41 bombings, 173 arsons, 91 attempted bombings or arsons, 619 bomb threats, 1630 incidents of trespassing, 1264 incidents of vandalism, and 100 attacks with butyric acid (“stink bombs”).[10] The first clinic arson occurred in Oregon in March 1976 and the first bombing occurred in February 1978 in Ohio.[15] More recent incidents have included:[5]

        * December 25, 1984: An abortion clinic and two physicians’ offices in Pensacola, Florida were bombed in the early morning of Christmas Day by a quartet of young people (Matt Goldsby, Jimmy Simmons, Kathy Simmons, Kaye Wiggins) who later called the bombings “a gift to Jesus on his birthday.”[16][17][18]
        * October 1999: Martin Uphoff set fire to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, causing US$100 worth of damage. He was later sentenced to 60 months in prison.[19]
        * May 28, 2000: An arson at a clinic in Concord, New Hampshire on resulted in damage estimated at US$20,000. The case remains unsolved.[20]
        * September 30, 2000: A Catholic priest drove his car into the Northern Illinois Health Clinic after learning that the FDA had approved the drug RU-486. He pulled out an ax before being shot at by a security guard.[21]
        * June 11, 2001: An unsolved bombing at a clinic in Tacoma, Washington destroyed a wall, resulting in US$6000 in damages.[19]
        * July 4, 2005: A clinic Palm Beach, Florida was the target of an arson. The case remains open.[19]
        * December 12, 2005: Patricia Hughes and Jeremy Dunahoe threw a Molotov cocktail at a clinic in Shreveport, Louisiana. The device missed the building and no damage was caused. In August 2006, Hughes was sentenced to six years in prison, and Dunahoe to one year. Hughes claimed the bomb was a “memorial lamp” for an abortion she had had there.[22]
        * September 13, 2006 David McMenemy of Rochester Hills, Michigan crashed his car into the Edgerton Women’s Care Center in Davenport, Iowa. He then doused the lobby in gasoline and then started a fire. McMenemy committed these acts in the belief that the center was performing abortions, however Edgerton is not an abortion clinc.[23]
        * April 25, 2007: A package left at a women’s health clinic in Austin, Texas contained an explosive device capable of inflicting serious injury or death. A bomb squad detonated the device after evacuating the building. Paul Ross Evans (who had a criminal record for armed robbery and theft) was found guilty of the crime.[24]
        * May 9, 2007: An unidentified person deliberately set fire to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Virginia Beach, Virginia.[25]
        * December 6, 2007: Chad Altman and Sergio Baca were arrested for the arson of Dr. Curtis Boyd’s clinic in Albuquerque. Altman’s girlfriend had scheduled an appointment for an abortion at the clinic.[26]
        * January 22, 2009 Matthew L. Derosia, 32, who was reported to have had a history of mental illness [27] rammed a SUV into the front entrance of a Planned Parenthood clinic in St. Paul, Minnesota.[28]

        [edit] Outside the United States

        Outside of the United States, known incidents of anti-abortion violence were committed in Australia, Canada and New Zealand.
        [edit] Australia

        * July 16, 2001: Steven Rogers, a security guard at a clinic in Melbourne, Australia was shot in the face and killed by Peter James Knight. Knight was charged and was sentenced to life in prison on November 19, 2002.[29]
        * January 6, 2009: A firebombing using Molotov cocktails was attempted at a medical clinic in Mosman Park, Western Australia. Faulty construction of the bombs limited damage to a single external burnt area, though if successful damage would have been severe. It is believed that the inviduals who made the attack were responsible for graffiti “baby killers” on the site, indicating a pro-life reason for the attack. The site turned out to in fact not be an abortion clinic, though the attackers most likely were not aware of this.[30]

        [edit] Canada
        [edit] Attempted murder

        Violence has also occurred in Canada, where three doctors have been attacked to date. There is speculation that the timing of the shootings is related to the Canadian observance of Remembrance Day. The physicians were part of pattern of attacks, which targeted providers in Canada and upstate New York, including Dr. Barnett Slepian. All victims were shot in their homes with a rifle, at dusk, in late October or early November. James Kopp was charged with the murder of Dr. Slepian and the attempted murder of Dr. Short; he is suspected of having committed the other shootings as well.[11][12]

        * November 8, 1994: Dr. Garson Romalis of Vancouver, British Columbia was shot.
        * November 10, 1995: Dr. Hugh Short of Ancaster, Ontario was shot.
        * November 11, 1997: Dr. Jack Fainman of Winnipeg, Manitoba was shot.
        * July 11, 2000: Dr. Romalis was stabbed by an unindentified assailant in the lobby of his clinic.[31]

        [edit] Bombing and property damage

        * February 25, 1990: Two men broke into a clinic in Vancouver and destroyed $C30,000 worth of medical equipment with crowbars.[32]
        * May 18, 1992: A Toronto, Ontario clinic operated by Henry Morgentaler was firebombed, causing the entire front wall of the building to collapse.[33]

        [edit] New Zealand

        In 1999 Graeme White was found guilty and jailed for tunneling into an abortion clinic in a failed attempt to blow it up.
        [edit] Explicit support of anti-abortion violence

        A small number of organizations outside the mainstream anti-abortion movement in the United States either explicitly or implicitly advocate violence against abortion providers. Two such organizations are the Army of God, an underground network of activists who believe that the use of violence is an appropriate tool for fighting against abortion, and the American Coalition of Life Activists, who published the Nuremberg Files.

        The American Coalition of Life Activists (ACLA) was especially controversial because of its wanted-style posters. These posters would feature a photograph of a physician that performed abortions along with a monetary reward for any information that would lead to their “arrest, conviction and revocation of license to practice medicine”[34]. The ACLA described these physicians as “war criminals”[35] and accused them of committing “crimes against humanity” (reference to Washington). The Nuremberg Files was a controversial web site which published the names, home addresses, telephone numbers, and other personal information of abortion providers – highlighting the names of those who had been wounded and striking out those of which had been killed. Dr. George Tiller’s name was included on this list along with many others. The site was accused of being a thinly-veiled hit list intended to incite violence; others claimed that it was protected under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution.[36] A 9th Circuit Court of Appeals decision finally shut the site down in 2002 after a prolonged debate.

        The Army of God alone was responsible for bombing and setting fire to over one hundred clinics before the year 1994. They also invaded more than three hundred clinics and vandalized more than four hundred[37]. While this group has committed numerous property crimes, they are notorious for their more personal acts of violence such as kidnapping, attempted murder and murder. In August 1982, three men identifying as the Army of God kidnapped for eight days Hector Zevallos (a doctor and clinic owner) and his wife, Rosalee Jean.[38] In 1993, Shelly Shannon, a very active member of the Army of God, was found guilty for the attempted murder of Dr. George Tiller[39]. That same year, law enforcement officials found the Army of God Manual, a tactical guide to arson, chemical attacks, invasions, and bombings buried in Shelly Shannon’s backyard.[38] And while Paul Jennings Hill was found guilty of the murder of both Dr. John Britton and clinic escort James Barrett, the Army of God justified his actions on the grounds that “whatever force is legitimate to defend the life of a born child is legitimate to defend the life of an unborn child… if in fact Paul Hill did kill or wound abortionist John Britton, and accomplices James Barrett and Mrs. Barrett, his actions are morally justified if they were necessary for the purpose of defending innocent human life”.[11]

    Try not to equate his behavior to true Christianity. The comparison can’t be made. There is nothing about his behavior or values which can be linked to Christianity.

    It’s equally invalid to link his personality traits to a given political party. With your stated understanding that not all Christians are bad, you’ve demonstrated an ability to separate adverse behavior from the true beliefs and values of Christianity.

    I’ve never used the term to describe liberals, but I believe I understand why it’s used so much.

    I view liberals as “What can the government do for me? How do I get some of that money” you know, “Obama money”. They display an inability to see the damage done to the country in the long run by social programs. The members of the DNC have ponied up to drink from the governments trough without thinking about the the big picture. Hence, the mindless drone comments.

    I view conservative to mean “Pursuit of policies good for the strength of our country as a whole. Let’s get the right fiscal policies and unburden the populace so they can be all they want to be. (without government intervention.) The rest will take care of itself.” Conservatives often say “No” to spending money and creating social programs because of that.

    RE:Geez, if we treat each other which that sort of high regard no wonder our great country has serious problems.

    How did this happen? How did we allow ourselves to get so polarized? I’ll tell you how. We’ve been listening to the politicians.

    We’ve been hearing things from leadership like the disingenuous comments about “astroturf” to describe honest grass roots assembly of people against HR3200.

    We’ve heard from people like Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) who made a sensation with his “die quickly” floor remarks.

    We’ve heard U.S. Representative Pete Stark tell a voter in his district “I wouldn’t dignify you by peeing on your leg. It wouldn’t be worth wasting the urine.”.

    We’ve heard Hillary Clinton say “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic and we should stand up and say, ‘We are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.’ “ to be followed up with remarks from Pelosi and Hoyer who wrote: “Drowning out opposing views is simply un-American.” in reference to town hall attendees who are genuinely angry with their representative. They have every right to drown out that “opposition” but somehow our congressmen have forgotten on which side their bread is buttered.

    —–

    When I was growing up and becoming interested in politics, the first policy I began to question was welfare. At the ripe old age of 17, I saw no good from it. What I did see was what I described as sort of a perpetual motion machine; it fed itself on those who didn’t really want to try to make a success of themselves. The more kids the single mother churned out the more money they got from the government. The system was so efficient it created generations of welfare-dependents. It was then that I realized our government was enabling failures. I also realized I had adopted a conservative point of view and have been one ever since.

    I don’t want our government to enable failures and to create generations reliant upon the government teat. I don’t want government involved in my health care using my tax dollars. I don’t want them taking my money and deciding for me how it will be invested for my retirement. I don’t want them to have to increase immigration numbers so they can continue to feed that pyramid scheme. I don’t want my country’s demographics defined by the hordes who can walk in through borders wide enough to drive a country through it. I don’t want my dollar diluted to the point of being meaningless in the world market.

    So now I understand why liberals look at the GOP as the party of “no”. But it is a shallow moniker which does not accurately describe the true principles of the party. The trouble is, the party has been hijacked by self-serving politicians who adopt policies to appease their voting base which may not have anything to do with conservative philosophies.

    Maybe that’s the thing; maybe we actually need a truly conservative party to represent what we actually believe in. Certainly this version of the GOP doesn’t align well with my views about where this country should be going and how to get there.

Sometimes I wonder if Dateline NBC will show up and make me famous, because when they go after crooks, it seems like more often than not it’s the underlings who get caught on tape while the bosses remain safely ensconced somewhere far, far away.

      I thought of a couple more bad examples I should have included on that original list:

      The boss likes to appear to be something he’s not, like a company much bigger than we really are. So rather than showing a picture of our real shithole (aka headquarters) he photoshopped our name on a completely different building and put that picture on our web site instead.

      Regarding the cheating on taxes: He does something similar to the last place I worked. At that job customers who paid by check or credit card got an official computer-generated receipt. Anyone who paid cash got a hand-written receipt. I never understood why until one day I realized it was for cheating on taxes. Ahhhh! My current boss does something similar. All checks must be made out to a person, not the business name. I don’t have proof but my guess is this is also for cheating on taxes.

      I find it odd that when I’m the atheist I end up being the most moral and ethical person in the room. That’s a position where I frequently find myself. I never cheated in school, I don’t lie, and I don’t fudge on my taxes. But some of the people in my life who call themselves “Christian” and tell me I’m going to hell – I see them doing immoral and unethical stuff all the time, just like my boss. I find that quite odd.

    1. I’ve never once called anyone who voted for Bush names, nor did I assume that they, as a group, didn’t have the best interests of our country at heart when they cast their ballots.

      The difference, it seems to me, is that I’m able to see and understand how and why they voted the way they do, even if I don’t agree with them politically. Conversely, however, by reducing approx. one-half of the country to a “Kool-aid drinker” insult, those who think this way are demonstrating that they are not capable of the same kind of understanding.

      In other words, they are letting their political beliefs interfere with properly processing and understanding a big slice of reality.

  22. Not all voters that voted for al-Thuggy are “kool-aid drinkers”. The independents that got suckered are jumping ship in droves. Now the ones after a year that still make excuses for him no matter what he says or does are kool aid drinkers or drones. That includes the MSM and 91 percent of African Americans that still give him a high approval rating. If these same drones gave al-Thuggy the same scrutiny as Palin, his numbers would be about 20 points even lower. Maybe once hyper inflation hits, the drones will see the light.

      I voted for Obama and I’m glad I did. My opinion of the man hasn’t changed all that much frankly because I didn’t rate him a “god” in the first place nor was I ever a “worshiper.”

      What I mainly think after his first year in office is that the opposition he has faced has been frothy-mouthed insanity. I actually think he’s done a pretty good job as far as presidents go.

      1. I’d like to understand what the left see in Obama as virtues or political values to be admired, adopted and pursued.

        During the first 100 days of his presidency, Obama has signed a $787 billion stimulus bill into law, proposed an eye-popping $3.6 trillion budget for the 2010 fiscal year, taken over a massive $700 billion Wall Street bailout program and created other billion-dollar programs to help grease the economic wheels.

        I have seen $180 billion given to insurance company AIG, stating they are simply too big to fail.

        Not stopping there, the United States government, lead by Mr. Obama, has given over 70 billion dollars to General Motors and Chrysler serving only to delay an inevitable bankruptcy.

        Before the eyes of a disbelieving public the leaders of these firms asked for more. In response, Mr. Obama acts quickly and forces the resignation of Rick Wagner, the longtime head of General Motors. The Feds force Chrysler to accept a merger with Italy’s Fiat. What business does government have being in business?

        By working to prevent bankruptcy proceedings, Mr. Obama has saved the labor union’s contract – almost the largest single reason GM and Chrylser failed to be a viable company in the first place. The heads of these labor unions remain in their offices.

        In his first 100 days, his spending policies will mean deficits amounting to 31.3 trillion dollars which will last well into 2017.

        Our federal deficit is now at 1.42 trillion and is weakening the dollar. A continued decline in the dollar may cause international investors to balk at investing in the United States, on concern a depreciated dollar would cut into any gains earned from dollar-denominated investments.

        It will soon be a full year of his policies which, to date, have done little to alleviate the current economic conditions. In fact, his policies have made things somewhat worse.

        In his first year in office, his spending record shatters all other records of first-year presidents.

        His cash for clunkers program was a failure. “The idea that a temporary subsidy program will launch the auto industry onto some new, higher sales and production plane defies logic. More likely, the program will merely have concentrated sales over a shorter period, as buyers either postponed purchases once they learned the program was in the works, or accelerated them to meet the subsidy deadline. The program is another bow to the now-reigning Washington policy illusion that the key to prosperity is force-feeding consumer spending, rather than creating incentives for Americans to invest and take risks.”

        Obama’s drunken-sailor spending is directly responsible for the astronomical deficits our grand-children’s grand-children will still be paying off.

        * President Bush expanded the federal budget by a historic $700 billion through 2008. President Obama would add another $1 trillion. (Psst. That makes it a new historic number which eclipses Bush’s. Yep. It would.)
        * President Bush began a string of expensive finan­cial bailouts. President Obama is accelerating that course.
        * President Bush created a Medicare drug entitle­ment that will cost an estimated $800 billion in its first decade. President Obama has proposed a $634 billion down payment on a new govern­ment health care fund.
        * President Bush increased federal education spending 58 percent faster than inflation. Presi­dent Obama would double it.
        * President Bush became the first President to spend 3 percent of GDP on federal antipoverty programs. President Obama has already in­creased this spending by 20 percent.
        * President Bush tilted the income tax burden more toward upper-income taxpayers. President Obama would continue that trend.
        * President Bush presided over a $2.5 trillion increase in the public debt through 2008. Setting aside 2009 (for which Presidents Bush and Obama share responsibility for an additional $2.6 trillion in public debt), President Obama’s budget would add $4.9 trillion in public debt from the beginning of 2010 through 2016.

        It’s difficult to understand how Obama’s policies get little criticism from the left while they howl against Palin and continue to play that tired “blame Bush” card.

        One poster at the Political Inquirer even advanced the notion that Bush was to blame for the Fort Hood massacre. How insane does one have to be to believe that?

        The National Journal ranked him as the “most liberal” senator based on an assessment of selected votes during 2007; in 2005 he was ranked sixteenth most liberal, and in 2006 he was ranked tenth.

        Raised as a Muslim and with over 20 years of attendance at a Chicago church with a pastor’s anti-Semite and anti-American preachings, Obama today nurtures embedded socialist values and has carefully surrounded himself with radical leftist thinkers, many of them now appointed as “Czars” in his administration.

        Obama’s thinking and vision for America embodies just about every value America has fought against for over 230 years. Many Americans have sacrificed their lives to preserve the way of life which Obama seems bent upon changing.

        Thanks to Obama’s keen and well honed community organizing skills, Amercia faces generations of overwhelming and alarming debt. With the bailouts and handouts of his socialist policies and with the specter of HR3962 and Crap and Trade, it appears there is no end in sight.

        Seriously, if an employee at your place of work performed like this, they’d be fired.

        With all of these dismal facts laid before them, liberals use airhead-like intellect to still bless Obama’s performance. It demonstrates a clear inability to process truth when it stares them in the face.

        Their mantra is deafening; “Denial, denial, denial”

  29. I have a story about fake Christians. This story is from Jesus himself – “Be wary of false preachers who smile a lot, dripping with practiced sincerity. Chances are they are out to rip you off some way or other. Don’t be impressed with charisma; look for character. Who preachers are is the main thing, not what they say. A genuine leader will never exploit your emotions or your pocketbook. These diseased trees with their bad apples are going to be chopped down and burned. Knowing the correct password—saying ‘Master, Master,’ for instance— isn’t going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obedience—doing what my Father wills. I can see it now—at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, ‘Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.’ And do you know what I am going to say? ‘You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don’t impress me one bit. You’re out of here.”
