Another Christian Missing the Point

The good Mr. Bill (Oh no!) over at Bill’s comments directs us over to a rather funny Bill of Non-Rights on the Wicked Thoughts blog.

I was reading along and chortling to myself:

ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.

Heh. Heh. Heh.

ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.

I’m now opposed to the death penalty (not as an absolute embrace of the right to life but out of concerns about implementation), but I still found that article amusing - thus far.

The Bill of Non-Rights lost me at:

ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!

The angry, in-your-face, counter-productive “so there” quality of the testimony here is rather offensive. Is this (historically inaccurate) article likely to win converts?

I think not.
