I believe in God, I am not Christian but I was raised Catholic and was eventually turned off by moral hypocrisy of the human bi-products of that
My reason for posting this is because I believe that good Christians are being brainwashed by conservatism to make all liberal thought a taboo and
seem against their faith.
What came first, the morality or the religion? Why can't I separate my morals from my faith? They are one in the same.
Here are three common sense subjects that I believe should not even be issues in our country, but have been made hot-button topics by stuffy neo-cons
who use Christianity to scare us into believing them...
What is in a word? A word has as much power as you give it. When the Bible says that cursing is wrong, why can't it be more about cursing an
individual? I guess I just don't see why a dirty word is dirty or can offend people on such a level.
If you don't like the F word, don't say it and don't listen to music with the F word in it.
Ok, so as a rule, I don't believe that anything that lives in symbiosis with you can be considered a separate entity from yourself. Cancer is
technically alive, viruses are technically alive, and we work to kill them constantly. I am not equating a baby to cancer, but a cluster of cells in a
womb is not really a baby either. And I was always told in Sunday school that a baby has its soul breathed into it at birth, not at conception.
Why do Christians focus so much on telling other people not to abort their fetuses? Do you feel like you are not in control of your own life if you
aren't controlling everyone else's as well?
If you are a Christian and are pro-life, then don't get an abortion.
Here's a subject that I just can't wrap my brain around. How is gay marriage destroying the sanctity of the act? You'll let idiots like Britney
Spears get married in a drunken stuper in Vegas, but 2 men or 2 women in love just seems dirty.
Christians, tell me why my gay friend cannot practice your religion differently from you??? Are you the boss of your religion? They aren't rubbing it
in your face, they just want to be happy.
If you don't believe in Gay marriage, don't get gay married.
So basically, why does it make Christians so angry that the other people in their country don't want to live like them? Why make policy based on
RELIGIOUS VIEWS?? That is against one of the main ideals we base our country on: separation of church and state, which we have sadly forgotten.
So I've offered many questions and I will provide one solution...
Live your life Christians, be good people, be happy. Don't worry yourselves with the moral fiber of others. You're putting yourself through too much
stress and bringing hate into your faith. People are all different, why does that make you upset?
The best part of this country is the choices we have as people. Just because you want to follow a certain set of rules, why must I follow the same
rules? I don't tread on you, don't tread on me.
EDIT TO ADD: I forgot to ask this question: In what way is censorship and stopping abortion or gay marriage really Christ-like? I still don't get it.
