You know, I don’t usually make a habit of looking down on someone else’s beliefs. That’s what they believe, and they must have their reasons. However, this really just goes beyond the top. Beliefs are fine and dandy, but don’t let them cloud your basic sense of human kindness and decency. Please.
This is an essay I wrote many years ago. It’s probably due for an update, but the majority of it still rings true for me. I held my baby in my arms and stroked his Read more…

That was pretty discusting. I hate things like that!

Sadly, human nature inspires hate for that which is different. People, in general, choose to hate. I say choose because everyone has the capacity for good and evil. Everyday is a battle…it takes strength to be a good person. I believe, if someone makes the decision to live by the golden rule…do unto others as you would have them do unto you…it doesn’t matter what sex they choose to love or whatever else makes them different from you. Life is too short to waste on hate. Love. Give. Life. Live.

very sad… it is frightening how some wicked and evil “human” beings have vulgarised christianity and turned it into a religion of hatred, lack of tolerance (and love, regardless of whatever they claim), and pro-violence (stuff like that piece of “art” that you linked in this entry does nothing more than inspire and “justify” attacks on folks who are “different”). makes me want to puke; makes me feel ashamed of having been a christian at some pont in my own history. sad, sad, sad….
hope everything’s going well wit’cha girl.

blah! How aggravating!

Yes, that is very sad indeed. I was a born again christian at one point myself, which is hard to believe now. I find it so hard to reconcile the gospel of love with this kind of passionate anti behavior. What is it that makes these people so passionate about interfering in other people’s lives? Prayer mustn’t be that powerful after all 😉

rofl, did anyone else notice that they didn’t bother to add that in the myth lot offers one of his daughters to them. Nor does it mention he latter gets to know both of his daughters quite personally……just a friendly note. Anyone who takes any one book as the authority on any topic is a bit ignorant for what leads to ignorance is just that taking information from only one source. Im sure the laws governing balance are happily teaching them this, though they may indeed be slow learners. karma ya gotta love it

Great site. I read the article you are talking about and you know what? It just confirms for me my religios choice. I would no more worship a god who judged people so harshly than I would pull my fingernails out. The sad thing is that the biblical interpretations keep getting looser and looser as the years go on.
Keep up the good work on your web site. I will definitely be back. Have a great day.
