I'm going to put this right here...why? Because I have experienced it, and I have not a single doubt in my mind that others have experienced it
too...whether they watched it happen, or heard about it, or been in that place themselves.
Those who convert to christianity at an age where they could think for themselves...they were offered no proof but an old book. But they chose to
believe anyway. Why? Because the sheer WILLINGNESS to believe brought such good joy from within them, that it was better to lie for hope than to be
honest for hell.
Hell? What hell? Oh, right...earth. That hell. Okay, continuing.
Lying for hope. That's what I did. I was baptized, yes I was. It was darn cold too. And I couldn't stop laughing...because I though maybe, for the
first time in my life, I had found a place where I belonged. And yet there were so many issues I could not reconcile. I had been taught science,
certainly, and I don't think one set of laws can be used to produce a reality with the complete opposite set of laws.
I had a Christian friend say to me, "You're bisexual. That's wrong. You must curb your lust...you must learn."
Learn what, exactly? That even though we are taught unconditional love, our sexual love, that which is the most sacred of all forms, must be
conditional? Excuse me? Haha...right.
And then I ask, "Well, what about everything that's going on here? All the bad stuff, earthquakes and everything?"
"Oh, well, the Lord has his ways. He's teaching us something."
Wonderful answer. You dodged the bush and everything. Applause for mastering the art of unproductive responses.
Also, i heard on a radio show that someone had the absolute iron testicles to say, "Oh, the trouble they're having in Saudi Arabia...maybe it's a sign
they should convert to Christianity?" I almost broke my radio right then and there.
Excuse me? EXCUSE ME?! This religion teaches love, tolerance, and compassion, and yet tries to cover up evry bad thing that happens while justifying
their own lies about the history of the world. Furthermore, they believe a thousand-year-dead man will be the salvation of their world...LITERALLY.
Why not just give up on it and teach about peace and love for the SAKE of peace and love?
There are so many things wrong with this, it's not funny. My mom was told she was going to hell because she is gay. That's Christianity, right? Okay,
just making sure.
Yeah, you can take your "stop hating on us" and drive to the south pole with it. Shack with it for a while. Get a good look at it. And realize the
exact degree of your hypocrisy. Maybe you might make a little sense once you've grown some hair on your spiritual chest.
Until then, you're wet behind the ears. Grow up. You don't know everything...you're only human, with a massive potential for believing in fairytales
that keep the nightmares away...the nightmares that are the reality of this world. Delusion for the sake of sanity. Because you are weak, and
withdrawing out of sheer terror and repulsion. I wish I could do that... Stop acting all-knowing, and all-loving, because you're not, and pretending
you are only makes yourself look foolish and drags everyone else behind.
