Why Don't They Like Me?

Author and speaker Brian McLaren asks in an article on the Huffington Post, "Why do evangelicals dislike me so much?"

In this article he goes on to compare evangelicals to mind-numbed zombies who are like the people in the old Milgram experiment which indicated that people will submerge their fragile consciences to blind and extreme obedience to authoritarian leaders who order them to do ludicrous, and even evil, acts of harm toward others. He goes on to liken the evangelical mentality to the horrifically cruel Inquisitors of the 16th and 17th centuries. He even intimates that since evangelicals are willing to cruelly punish fellow Christians for any disagreement, then Muslims, gays, and certain poor animals are potential targets for much more lethal actions.

Golly gee! Such a mystery?
What's not to like?

May God spare me or any evangelical from ever being on the receiving end of an electrical shock being administered by Mr. McLaren. He is already pressing the button as hard and as much as he can!
