Pastor Tony Miano: Pounce on ‘Em When They’re Down

April 26, 2015


Have a look at this tweet by self-righteous preacher Tony Miamo:

And in case he takes the tweet down, here’s exactly what  he said: “Praying 4 the lost souls in Nepal. Praying not a single destroyed pagan temple will b rebuilt & the people will repent/receive Christ.” ‘Cause that’s exactly what the compassionate, humane thing is to do–wait till they are desperate and vulnerable and then pounce on them with your religion.

Miano is, apparently, one of those who would come up to a starving person on the street and hand them a Bible tract because it’s more important to feed their souls than their bodies. And as they starve to death, he would walk away, shaking his head at their sinful stubbornness in rejecting his religion.

There are few people on earth as cruel as a self-righteous Christian. And I’m sure Miano believes that his Jesus is exactly like him, and would do exactly what he wants to do–ensure that everything that upholds and sustains people through their worst disasters is kept from them, so the “right doctrine” can be shoved down their throats instead. (Because a “conversion” when someone is half-insane with desperation and grief is a real conversion, right? Not to mention a great notch on some soulless missionary’s belt.)

But really, what was it, that stuff, that thing that Jesus said? That thing, you know? Oh right:

“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’

“Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’

“Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’

“These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 25:41-46)

Funny. Jesus must have left out the part about, “But it’s more important to convert them first, rather than sustain them and help them get through to the other side of their grief and disaster.”

Miano’s god is the person he sees in the mirror. And he presumes to tell others that they create gods in their own image.
