@ktwsolo There's a word for people like that: "curmudgeon". :p

@TailKinker42 @TychaBrahe1 You're right, though. I need to switch up my vernacular. I can't refer to "Christians" as such because frankly, they're not, and it is an insult to good-hearted people of the true faith such as yourself. Hypocrites, are more like it.
@CraigMusselman That doesn't make a shred of sense. You're gonna have to explain this one to me.
@SharonGa Oh hush you, I was speaking generally. :p I know plenty of ladies who love a good strap-on!
@TailKinker42 @TychaBrahe1 Tail...thank you. Your words mean a lot to me, and if the billions of other "Christians" thought more like you, this world would be a happy, peaceful place, I just know it. I don't hate Christianity, just false Christians, which sadly make up a staggering majority. I forget who quoted it, but it stands true for me: "I love god, I just hate his fan club". Mental hugs for you. <3 I wish I could do it in person!
@ktwsolo @DominiqueMoore @mrenee2000 When the jolly hell have I been inconsistent? you're weird.
@ktwsolo Where does it say on here that the author guarantees that this is 100% factual, a work of pure fact and nothing else? You're grasping at straws here, kid.
@ktwsolo @DominiqueMoore @mrenee2000 You still don't get it, do you? It doesn't MATTER if it's fake or real. It's still touched the harts of nearly everyone who read it, and even if it's made a positive influence in even one person's life, then it's a success.
@ktwsolo I've read plenty of fictitious writings that deeply impacted my life. This is no different.
@Joycereee @EricKincade For Christians to come here and try and sell their religion, quote bible verses, and "prove" God's existence, is like when the NRA shows up to host a rally at the location where a school shooting just happened. It's tactless and stupid.
@Joycereee @JasonVernon @Brawny71 I think it's perfectly fine to hate on the bigot she USED to be. She, like many, many hypocritical "Christians" before her, follow a strict doctrine of "do as I say, not as I do". It's pretty funny, if you think about it.
@rbraet @steviewonder89 Yeah. Way to totally destroy a brave young man's heroic and heartfelt deeds by trying to place credit for it with some imaginary sky-man. I call bullshit.
@iamacoolperson Yeah, I bet he's totally cool with the whole "genocide in the name of God" thing.
@Trixlynn @pickles In his defense, it's difficult to tell what the heck that entire thing is about. Ye Olde Englishe is tough to interpret! XD
@GlenandChristanCurtis Dude...you can't be serious. It's not exactly a secret that Jerusalem is a real place, or the Red Sea, or Mount Sinai. This is no proof at all. You know what else is no proof? The fact that God and Jesus were running everywhere blowing stuff up, raising the dead, walking on water and what-have-you, and then suddenly disappear for millennia, never to appear again? I call that pretty darn rude of a supposedly omnipotent deity. To quote Epicurious:
"Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?"
Oh, also, it's "you're".
@NathanWhiting Nah, I still think we should separate ourselves from the broken South. Then, when they inevitably start committing acts of terrorism the U.N. can sanction the hell out of 'em!
@ktwsolo You're the type of person who would throw away a diamond ring because you don't like the box it came in, aren't you?
@StephenPope I love how it's been half an hour and you still have failed to give us any sources to back up your ridiculous claims. XD I've got news for you, straight people have anal sex! Lesbian couples DON'T have anal sex! the only emotional damage that could possibly be a result of homosexuality is the constant harassment and malice shown to them by people like you!
@TychaBrahe1 I hope you're right...I really do. Heh. It's not in my nature to be optimistic, and even after reading such a persuasive, heartfelt article from a Christian mother, I see countless "Christians" who are still adamantly hating on gays and those of other religions. So my argument is, depressingly, valid.
@sevenevenstar Please read my reply to this article at the top of the screen. For anyone to come here, read this, and have the audacity to continue to judge and be hurtful for the sake of their "god", only means that they will live their lives as a black-hearted person, and die with a heavy conscience. I don't believe in God, but if he exists, he must be horrified at the sheer number of his "followers" whom he's forced to cast into Hell.
I feel torn about this article, and the one that inspired it. I'm so sorry, but I can't shake the nagging suspicion that the mother here is an exception, not the norm. Many of my friends know of my disdain for the religious masses, and I have even lost some friends because they were unable to curb their inherently judgmental thoughts stemming from their so-called "faith". If her son wasn't gay, would she still be unchanged in her hateful ways? Would her son grow up to be just as closed-minded and bigoted, having never known the pain of ostracism? Sadly, I feel that they would, indeed. Religion is little more than a thinly-veiled cult of hatred, and a validation for evil people to judge and cause harm to others.
I feel that many of you will think I am a bad person for my feelings towards religion; I mean, after all who else but a pathetic, sad little girl could look upon Christianity, Judaism, Catholicism, and the like as evil entities? It's this mindset that makes me so angry. I have met such kind, open people, atheist, agnostic, Catholic, Christian, you name it, that are good souls for the sake of being good souls, not because they feel they HAVE to because their God told them to. On the other hand, the staggering whole of closed-minded, malicious individuals I've known throughout my life were, without exception, very pious people. After nearly thirty years of being shut out, spit on, called names, yelled at, shunned, and exiled from the hearts and homes of those of so-called "Christian" families, it would truly take a miracle to convince me that religion as a whole is anything other than a destructive influence on our society.
