The Ramblings Of John Campea

Life Beyond The Movies

Quote of the Day

“Christianity has been made so completely devoid of character that there is really nothing to persecute. The chief trouble with Christians, therefore, is that no one wants to kill them any more!” -Soren Kierkgaard

  1. Holy shit Campea. You’re more literate than I thought.

  2. That’s fun, coming from a Christian. And who would ever say that they don’t collectively have a sense of humour; at least submit themselves to a sense of humour (that isn’t very funny in light of their convictions and subsequent failure thereof).

    Sounds like something out of his later works – his Journals, or perhaps AUC. Of course, with SK his intention is NEVER the superficial understanding of a simplistic reading which most people take him at (as he lays out in F&T and TIC). There’s always something deeper there, something more truthful, and certainly something more profound.

    Christians used to have something that really offended people; enough to provoke the retaliation of an empire. Eventually it became the empire. And then it, too, crumbled. Now people pity Christians. They aren’t offended by them, they certainly don’t agree with them. They simply pity them – clingers to a lost empire.

    Perhaps SK is suggesting that character was the one thing they had that mattered? And still could yet regain?
