Christianity doesn’t like me.

Posted in irritation,random,rants,religion by Scaramouche on 7 February, 2008

Okay, what the hell.

Apparently, Christians don’t like my beliefs. They write blog posts about them. Angry blog posts, filled with bread. Angry, righteous bread. Seriously, what is the deal with all the bread, man?

So, in this post, I talked about how I felt about sex and whatnot. The person who wrote the blog post linked earlier, “elmantheman”, decided to comment saying I was essentially wrong. He disregarded my personal beliefs entirely and pushed me towards  Christianity, urging me to Christian sites.

I visited these sites (actually, this site, as he only gave me one, over and over again). They’re full of the same slings and arrows I see coming from fundie Christians everywhere.

This elman guy doesn’t appear to understand that I believe in something different than he does. I accept his beliefs (though they are based on something that is, if nothing else, WAYY out of date), so why can’t he accept mine? He doesn’t know me – he called me a HE, for goodness’ sake – and he doesn’t know why I believe what I do. My life, and my AFTERlife, is none of his business. Why does he criticize me on my decisions for MY life, and not expect me to do the same?

Look. Just because my religion is based on my own opinions, my own values, my own experiences, does NOT mean it is any less valid. So I don’t belong to an organized religion. SO FUCKING WHAT? I still take pride in my beliefs, and I still feel fulfilled by them, and that’s all that matters to me. I don’t need an old book to tell me how to live my life. I don’t need ANYONE to tell me how to live my life. I live life according to MY rules, MY values. It’s all about ME, baby.

Your religion, on the other hand, is so unoriginal.  You have to follow their rules or ETERNAL HELLFIRE. Be who they tell you to be or ETERNAL HELLFIRE. Of course, you have no repercussions for being a total dick to people if they don’t conform to your standards.

Hey, elman? I LIKE CHICKS. That’s right. I’m into girls. I’m a girl, and I’m into girls. ISN’T THAT SHOCKING!! I’m going STRAIGHT to hell. And guess what else?  I’m a spiritualist. That’s right, I don’t believe in your god. OMGZ TEH HORROR!!!

When will people realize that hate for others is NOT Christian? Christianity isn’t about being the biggest recruiter. It’s about LOVING your fellow man. It’s about peace and love and harmony and being groovy and all that cool jazz. Not hating on others for being different.

To quote one of my favourite movies, “Saved!”: Why would God make us all so different if he wanted us to be the same?

That’s all from me. I’m out, yo. Peace.

    So, you are a female now, huh! For that, I stand corrected. I am sorry, your gender was never an issue nor been part of our conversation even from the beginning when I posted my comment to your article. I’ll try to edit the pronouns that I used in my article about you.

    You gave my link, it would be enough to answer your claims here.

    Good job, my love; way to stand up for your beliefs. Oh, and by the way, elmantheman, I’m a guy, just so you know. I am curious, however, how one is to be both gay and Christian. For it says in Leviticus, and I quote, “Homosexual acts are an abomination to God.” -18:22. And, of course, “If a man has sex with another man, kill them both.” 20:13.

    Now I of course find that extremely offenseive and must resist the urge to burn the copy of the Bible I just referred to. And I’m sure this must offend you, as a homosexual, at least as much, if not more than it does me. So tell me, how do you still keep a Christian faith? Do you just conveinently ignore that part? I mean, some of the Bible is open to interperitation, but there’s pretty much no way you could interperit that differently.

    So if you do ignore those parts of the Bible, does that not shake the entire foundations of the Christian faith? If you know in your heart that that part isn’t right, don’t you start thinking some of, if not all the rest of it might not be right either? And then how do you know what to believe? Not to mention, of course, the bible’s numerous inconsistancies, continuity errors, other things that are grossly immoral, and just plain absurdities (I would point them out, but the work has been done for me at http://skepticsannotatedbible.com/).

    I’m sorry this turned into a kind of mini-essay, but I am genuinely scientifically curious as to how a homosexual can be a Christian.
