Even though I say I'll become an atheist if one more stupid thing is said by someone from the same faith as me, I couldn't be one if I tried.
BUT BUT BUT!!!! It doesn't mean I don't have other opinions of what the bible says and what manipulative people either of the church or just wannabe puritans try to stuff down our throats.
I'll be blunt. Going to church doesn't make you a good Christian OR a good person any more than going to a library makes you an avid reader.
HELPING OTHERS AND DOING THE RIGHT THING DOES.
I'm an Anglican Protestant. No, I'm not highly religious but I do believe and pray only when I think is necessary.
What has pissed me off is all this crap about being gay, a lesbian or bisexual makes you a sinner. Urgh....
For the love of all that is good. Do people really believe every word in the bible or a person of the church?
Tell me, does being gay (other than loving another person) involve doing basically everything that is the opposite of the ten commandments or do what the Nazis or Pol Pot did?
I'll answer for you. NO!
I'm not a lesbian or bisexual myself but some friends and acquaintances of mine are either gay/lesbian/bi, and they are the loveliest people I know. Okay, some lads who act camp might make me feel uncomfortable but I would never wish anything bad happen to them.
If I come across someone who is gay/lesbian/bi, I don't care if they are. If they respect me I'll respect them. It's not f****ing rocket science!
A lot of BS (you know what I mean) in the media makes me fizz.
Anyone remember when they said Gay Marriage was the cause of the flooding in the south of England and the Ebola outbreak in Africa?
What a load of trash.
Also, how can parents disown their own kids just because of their sexuality?
All I can say is they should listen to this grandfather www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/10…
He wrote a letter to his daughter who kicked out her own son just because he told her he was gay.
And remember, NEVER use religion as a weapon to fit your own needs.
