A Time to Grade

It’s that time of year again. I’m so completely burned out from grading that I’m having a hard time gearing up the concentration to write a full post. I apologize for the short post but grading is literally the worst part of my job and also the most exhausting. Here is a quick paragraph:

How many times must we endure failed biblical prophecy before we, as a society, stop pretending that these people are worth listening to? Seriously, it’s getting to be too much. When the Supreme Court rules on the gay marriage question which is a ruling likely in support of it, the preachers are going to be predicting hellfire and the Apocalypse. They are going to be claiming that it is another sign of the end times and when nothing happens members of their congregations are going to forget that anything happened at all. Why are they allowed to get away with this?

    May I point you to the story about the boy who cried wolf?

    I believe that it has much to do with the fact that this is a very significant portion of their identity, “I’m a Christian”. Around these parts we’ve even got businesses that identify themselves as “Christian”, so there is no need to put up with having a heathen plumber come to your house, you can keep it in the family, so to speak. I’ve been given to understand that is a fairly common phenomenon around the nation. Every thing with these folks seems to be seen through a religious filter. Christian TV, radio, music (even metal and hip-hop),even stories and novels. Being that unrelentingly religious simply cannot be good for one’s psyche.
    But my point really was that they have to let these guys get away with it or they’d need to start asking some emotionally dangerous questions. Very few appear to be willing to do that.
    I just hope our species matures before too much more time passes. Humanity will be far better off.
