Not everyone who is religious hates gay people. The ones who do are not religious, they're bigots who use Christianity to hide the fact that they're shitty people.

I’m sick to death of this fucking stand point you know what? People that hate gay people are true Christians.

If you’ve read Leviticus which I’m assuming you haven’t but your pastor has reworded to make you feel good with your buddy Jesus and his shit preaching.

Then you’d know that the bible is actually against homosexuality so the fact that you’re siding with gay people, well you’re gonna burn for eternity in the XXX anal club, have fun


Also the fact that the bible wasn’t written until around 60 years after Jesus apparent death by someone who had hallucinations and left their full time job to preach contradictory shit also pokes a hole in your belief (or you know the fact that no historical proof exists of anyone named Jesus around that time, no historian ever mentioned him)


Or you know since god is omnipotent I could pull the Epicuris card which I’m not going too but I will pull out the fact that if he was so Omnipotent he would of picked a better time to appear rather than 2,000 years ago in the Middle East in an area where most people can’t write


He’s a sloppy deity

Oh look another atheist using Leviticus against Christians -.-

I can use it against you because of what it says dickhead.

Except any actual Christian (or anyone who has even mildly studied the religion) would know that Christians outside the Orthodox sects, don’t follow the Old Testament because Christ’s sacrifice and all that New Testament fun essentially cancels out the Old Testament.

Very few Christian sects should be using the Old Testament as anything other than general study material, otherwise they’re basically saying, “Fuck you and your sacrifice, Christ.” which sort of goes against one of the main tenants of Christianity to begin with.

Yet I’ve seen so many non-Orthodox Christians use Leviticus as a means to prove that homosexuality is a sin?? Like holy shit. I must be surrounded by a bunch of shitty Christians then. Guess I can throw that right back. 

It’s almost as if they don’t know even the very basics of their own religion and just blindly follow what the pastor/minister tells them.

Oh no, wait, that’s exactly what it is.

The people arguing with the OP should familiarize themselves with the No True Scotsman fallacy. There are plenty of real true legitimate Christians who hate LGBQTIA folk, and waving your hands and pretending they aren’t affiliated with you isn’t progressive. It’s a lazy, disingenuous cop-out used when someone wants to ignore the problems in their own group.

On the one hand, I do agree—Christianity really needs to step up and acknowledge that yeah, there are a lot of really hateful people going around and still technically falling under their umbrella. Hell, the biggest thing people outside the church know Christianity for is the general hatred towards people who fall under the LGBTQIA spectrum, and it’s really rare that you’ll get someone from the church to acknowledge that and admit that they need to do better. 

On the other hand, people who are Christians and DO espouse that sort of hatred really need to actually learn about their own religion. Thinking that automatic hatred of any group is actually part of Christ’s message just shows that people haven’t been reading their own holy book.

Which is why I’m pro-life 

What about the right to food? The right to shelter? The right to not have your freedom restricted to pad the dividends of the Prison-Industrial Complex? The right to make informed choices about contraception, pregnancy, and birth without being subject to domestic terrorism? The right to opt out of parenthood if you know you are unprepared, unfit, dangerous, or simply not ready? The right to an education that nurtures your particular strengths and skills? The right to safe, clean, legal abortion?

These people aren’t advocating for “life.” They are advocating a political strategy that stigmatizes a legal medical procedure in order to punish those they see as sexually transgressive with either death or the financial instability that follows from a lack of reproductive choice. This will never be about life and it will always be about a longing for despotic control of people’s lives by starving them of reproductive freedom.

JUST SO WE’RE CLEAR.

Garland Grey, everybody. *stands up, claps slowly*

You are a young man driving across the country, thinking about the women in your life and the various ways in which they have disappointed you.

You saw something horrifying at the circus.

Sometimes you think about just picking up and leaving this filthy city, but then one morning you wake up and watch the sky turn from narcissus-white to the delicate, throbbing, vein-purple hues of the nodding heads of crocuses and irises, the ones you remember picking from your mother’s garden when you were still young and unafraid, and there above the Gowanus you see a map of your future, your past, and your heart (but not in an overwrought or sentimental way.)

Your father never said he loved you, not once, not to your face, not to your heart.

The snake is a metaphor.

You sit at the bar and have a drink. When you finish your drink you have another. You drink in a way that is simple and direct and not at all in imitation of Hemingway or Carver, and if it is then it’s an homage, a subtle, searingly thought-provoking homage, and the bartender is a charming old gent who calls you “hoss” and not a college girl with a swallow tattoo on her breastbone.

Bullies ruined your Halloween costume.

The world is baroque in its cruelty.

The dog is a metaphor.

That’s not what you meant.

“I just wish you would express your feelings more,” your girlfriend says. “I never know what you’re thinking.” You drink your drink. If only your girlfriend knew what you were thinking. Your thoughts are so brutal and true that they would scare her witless. She would die. And even through the buffer of this short story, female readers are probably becoming barren just by encountering the power of your thoughts, right at this minute, right now.

Her laugh was like the jangle of a charm bracelet, or like the wind whispering in the branches of an aspen, or like waves crashing on the beach, or like something else that doesn’t really sound at all like laughter, or even any sound a human can make, to be honest.

There is an ethnic person nearby, but they are dispensing with excellent advice. Their voice is cracked and earthy, like the earth. If they were your father they would say they loved you, to your face and to your heart. “Chile,” they say, “sho nuff, this crazy world goes on a-spinnin’ and don’t nobody know where it gon’ stop.” You nod sagely. It is good to take the G Train.

The G Train is a metaphor.

The love of a good woman will save you. A good woman will place her cool hand upon your feverish brow and not like the bands you don’t like. A good woman will know she is a metaphor, and accept it.

You drove all day and into the night. It was good to be out west. When you stopped at the filling station, the attendant wore a denim jacket and asked if you’d be staying in Idaho long. “Maybe I will,” you said as you watched the sunset over the whatever river they have out here, or some mountains or something, who cares. “Maybe I will.”

It was a moment Anthony Carbajal will never forget: standing on the stage of one of TV’s most popular talk shows, fighting for a cause that touches him and his family profoundly. All while his mom looked proudly on.
