I’m revamping this old post for Dude Write 7 Deadly Sins. You should check it out. I figured that I have tons of sin in my blog already, but this was my first post that dealt with religion, and my contempt for it. Basically I’m stirring the pot, and I’m sure that there’s some sort of sin here with the small bit of gayness that will qualify me.
What the hell people? I’m running out of topics, and the four of you that read this aren’t much help. I guess I’ll start by saying that I don’t believe in God. I generally capitalize it out of respect for those of you that do. I’m not saying God doesn’t exist, I just have a hard time buying into it. It’s not just God, because I don’t believe in any other deity either. I do believe in people and humanity though, and I try to follow the ten commandments as much as possible.(Well, five to ten anyhow.)
On the other hand, I don’t care what you believe in, as long as it doesn’t hurt anybody. You can have faith that Rumplestiltskin is the creator of the universe if it makes you feel happy. I know he wouldn’t be my first choice, what with all the hoarding babies and all.
I do feel quite a bit of contempt for religious zealots however. It’s one thing to believe in something that comforts you, but quite another to shove your beliefs down someone else’s throat. I should clarify that I’m mostly talking about children here. It’s fine to send your kids to Sunday school while their little sponge-like brains can soak in Jesus and all of the beautiful stories of love, wine and fishing, but for the sake of the human race, don’t beat the Lord into them and make them afraid to be kids. When they get to whatever age is reasonable, give them the choice. Don’t tell them that they will be punished if they don’t believe in God or Allah, or whatever the Scientologists pray to. Love them unconditionally like a good Christian, Jew or Jehovah’s Witness should. Jesus would want it that way.
While we’re on the subject of religion. LEAVE THE FUCKING GAYS ALONE! I cannot stress enough that they are humans too. I’ve dissected some of their elders and they are the same as us inside and out. (Except maybe for Nazis) I know a few homosexuals of both genders, and am proud to call them my friends. What does it matter to you who they love and why they love them? I actually met a couple not too long ago that almost turned me gay, with their happiness and love for everyone.(Just kidding folks, I don’t think that’s on their agenda, but I’d make a pretty good bear I twink.) Anyhoo, just lay off them, treat everyone with respect until they prove undeserving, and you’ll be surprised how many good friends you will make.
While we aren’t on the subject of bullying, I’d like to ask you to not bully people, and if you have kids, please teach by example that everyone deserves a chance in life. Think about how much of a nerd you are, and what it would be like if everyone you knew teased you about it, maybe knocked you down a few times calling you fatty four eyes and then stole your sandwich because your mom makes the best homemade jam in the township. Sorry, I might have drifted away there. Anyhow, unless they are Nazis or KKK, I don’t think you should be picking on anyone.
Your mom’s pretty hot,
P.S. Sorry if I offended any Nazis with this post.
