“Why should I allow that same god to tell me how to raise my kids, who had to drown his own?” - Robert G. Ingersoll
Christianity has changed so much over the course of its history, there’s really no reason that they can’t change to embrace all kinds of queer people!
I’ll never not reblog this.

WILL ALWAYS REBLOG.
These sorts of things are very interesting to me. For me, I’ve always believed that belief is a very personal thing and should never be used to justify pain or control towards others no matter the justification. While speaking on the level of beliefs and experience is fantastic, using things like in example here the bible to dictate the way others live is just atrocious to me, particularly in the light of what in reality is in this book and just how much of it has been wrong over the centuries and, along with other religions, used to persecute and kill. I think it’s more us as humans though, at the base of how we are, we can be incredibly scary when it comes to the topic of persecution and our blind reasons to cling to it…
Maybe it’s because being gay has nothing to do with your history and life choices guys.
Man. Don’t ever feel guilty or like you’re somehow wrong for being gay, that’s unacceptable outright to be who you are and have something like that said to you. It pisses me off incredibly when people actually push that thought, it is possibly the most backwatered ignorant shit out there that there is, especially with research and results already out right proving it wrong long ago.
It’s absolutely no different then beliefs that being black is somehow being less human, beneath whites, or a horrible sinner in a past life. IE people used to believe that just as strongly and defend it with the bible. KKK was even founded on religion.
Christianity, stay classy.
There is this sense when discussing equal rights for LGBT people that both sides of the argument should be heard, and there should be debate. Well, I don’t agree. The freedom of religion is important to this country, and something I hold very dear. But this freedom does not give anyone the right to declare a portion of our population second-class citizens, guilty of nothing more than being born.
It is so frustrating when a “reputable” news source is having a conversation about equal rights and equal marriage, and people from groups like the Family Research Council or the American Family Association are invited into the conversation. What if they invited the Grand Dragon of the KKK to speak about the problems of racism in this country? People wouldn’t stand for it. So, why are these groups, which were designated hate groups by the Southern Poverty Law Center in 2010, treated as legitimate? (I expect it from Fox News, but CNN should know better.) ….
