So ALL I am saying is STOP HATEN ON ANY RELIGIONS THEY ARE TRYING ATLEAST...
I managed to pick that out of your wall of capital letters. I think your caps lock button might be broken. You should check it. So, moving on...
Stop hating on religions? Viewing a faith critically is not hate, it's called rationality and attempting to show people the light. There's a very good
reason I do this: most Christians are content to sit with their head in the sand, waiting for a two thousand year old corpse to drop out of the sky
and do what hundreds of political leaders and activists have been unable to achieve for hundreds of years...all in a single day. Then, should anyone
who looks like they can parrot a few quotes from an out-of-date manual happen along, these Christians attempt to sell the deal to them as well.
The deal goes something like this: "There's two invisible people, one under the ground and another in the sky. They both want your soul, but the one
dude, who we'll call "God" because it's easy to remember and sounds cool, will give you free candy and lots of [censored]
, even though
gluttony, lust, and laziness are all sins, whereas the other guy, who we'll call Satan because that's my ex-wife's name, let's you do whatever you
want, but you get to burn forever. Oh, did I mention that God GAVE Satan that office? He invented sin too. Doesn't like it, though...if you act human
in any way, you're probably doing it wrong. So yeah, no matter what happens to you, God did it. And as long as he did it, it's a good thing, no matter
how many people die or suffer. But he still wants your soul."
And from all that, we get lots of hatred toward anyone who doesn't do what they do. Like homosexuals. Even though, if we were to start prying into the
Christians' sexual lives, we'd get majorly hated on for that too. In fact, our sins are forgiven every week in the eyes of a discriminatory god by a
priest who sins with little boys and still has the authority to forgive us for the things we do every week. Then we'll come in and do the entire
illogical routine again next week, for the exact same thing. And don't worry, little Timmy will still be waiting for Father in the basement. But God
will still save Timmy! Until he remembers those beautiful moments, experiments later on his own, and finds out that he's actually gay. Then he's
screwed, because God's personal representative broke a rule, and now little Timmy is damned for all of eternity.
See what a little faith can do for people?
