being unfriendly to christians 

theologians of the religion that converted an unparalleled proportion of the globe under threat of the sword over a period of millenia preaching about how the use of violence is ultimately cyclical and self-defeating is pretty fucking rich in my imo

"now that i'm the only one sitting down, let's stop playing and talk about how the game of musical chairs is ultimately cyclical and self-defeating"

i can't think of many ostensibly-leftist political views i trust less at first glance than "christian anarchism". why is it specifically "christian". how does that make it different than other anarchism. i am so apprehensive to learn what the distinguishing characteristics might be.

@zorotl christians in the 00s be like: islam is violent because they have a verse about converting using the sword. anyway this is why we must kill them all

re: being unfriendly to christians 

@zorotl yeah the specific need to make it Christian anarchism and not just anarchism while you’re also a Christian sets off alarm bells

re: being unfriendly to christians 

@zorotl this is a VERY worrying wikipedia page your post has led me to

@zorotl this whole time ive just been telling myself that theyre christians and anarchists, and they dont like the whole "no gods no masters" thing bc theyre christians, and that thats the only thing that sets them apart from normal anarchists

@geet lol, i wish. it's apparently its whole own brand of thing that is best known for advocacy of pacifism and non-resistance. apparently tolstoy was very influential in it. i don't like what i'm looking at at all.

@zorotl hmmmmm

@zorotl it also has massive flaws in how it fails to analyse the fact that, an inaction IS an action to persist the status quo which is extremely violent. christian anarchism is only a thing in the west, a place built upon past and continuous extreme violence, the fact they can even hypothesise of non violent resistance is inherently BECAUSE they have privilege gained by violence done in their name

@zorotl "Christian anarchism", two words I don't like that are even worse together
