I am a follower of Jesus Christ. My desire, which I know I will fall short of, is to be as much like him as possible.
…I will not speak about this topic with anyone against homosexuality because it does make me angry. I have seen too many of my friends get hurt by uneducated bigots in the church. [link]
Translation: Christ died for your sins so Crunchy Momma and her cow-brained ilk can shame you into supporting the Sodomites.
You broke the cross to form the hideous lie of that fucking equal sign. After killing God, vulgarizing mathematics was but icing on the cake for you.
Sin is personal, just like your relationship with God is personal. If you were born attracted to the opposite sex good for you. Your life will probably a lot easier because of the culture we live in. But how does that give you the right to condemn something you know nothing about?
I’m sure God is mighty proud of his children’s open-mindedness and skill at conflict resolution (avoidance). Seriously, who could have thought that the best way to lead people to the light of the Lord’s forgiveness is to normalize their sin? It’s brilliant.
In fact, I think we should apply this enlightened approach to social issues. I bet paying lazy and stupid people to not work will make them more productive!
It’s just a matter of time for this latest nail of religiously-accepted homosexual marriage to be added to the others… Though it may take a bit longer than usual; the wrist holding the hammer is noticeably limp.
Progressive politics is a regression of leadership and responsibility to an insipid popularity contest and ritualized make-work project. Similarly, progressive religion is a regression of narrative from the divine to the profane.
…Basically the Bible in general is misinterpreted thanks to translating it, and the cultural overlays that took over the passages.
Tfw you realize Martin Luther reduced the word of God to the intellectual equivalent of an orgy.
Christianity in the modern sense is nothing more meaningful than a bumper sticker. It’s a quip on your facebook “about me.” It’s your cover photo on
Christmas the holidays. Your Eucharist is Chic-Fil-A. Your most religious experience is swaying with your arms in the air like a fucking idiot at the Chris Tomlin concert. It’s a gathering with some background music. It’s whatever you want it to be, meaning it has no meaning.
Your belief in God is nothing more than an identity, an image. The collected musings and borne witnesses of great men and women from hundreds of years ago exist as your shallow emotional crutch and nothing more. What deeper meaning can exist in a work that men fought fucking crusades over, amirite?
Progressive Christians seek ideals without exclusion, results without the work, pleasure without pain, effect without cause, salvation without damnation. Perpetual childishness. What you have as a result is meaninglessness disguised as value, partial objects… Perhaps even less; Cain killed Abel for something, at least.
To be quite honest, I have no idea why atheists today are so opposed to a religion that largely seeks to be more and more like them.
