I grew up in a pretty religious house but started pulling away because I was irritated that my parents would say everything good in my life happened because "God loves me," and everything bad was because I was "straying from God." **** outta here with that shit.


So yes, in a way, they do rub me the wrong way.

WTF are you talking about dude? It's common knowledge that bashing the bible belt christians is not just reasonable, but pretty damn cool and hip, and obviously if you sit on the internet and argue all the time about how illogical christianity is, you're ssssuper intellectual and a total progressive.

But it's not like you can just make fun of muslims or hindus or buddhists. That's just straight up racist. I don't know how you could say otherwise. It's only cool and tolerant if you make fun of christians, that makes you really intellectual. If you see someone making fun of islam then you have to call the police for hate crime, theyre not being tolerant like they need to be. and as someone who is super tolerant myself, i wont accept that from them. its all about just being super tolerant ok? just stop with your bigotry already and tell muslims you welcome their religion and you really respect them and dont have any problem with them, and you have their back against racists and stupid redneck christians who should just go invent their own country somewhere and leave us aloneeee!!1111!!!!11, hmmkay? thanks.

i just totally support equality thats all

If they are muslim, hindu, jewish, buddhist or other, I am extremely tolerant of them, and find dispicable the bigots who would dare to criticize or ridicule them for their sweet innocent beliefs and customs. Its plain as day that to insult THESE religions is purely racist, and as someone who is uber hip and tolerant, im completely intolerant to that intolerance.


So, ya know, theres that.

Man, I used to be that way with religious folk. I'd immediately would judge people if I heard they go to church or pray or mention God.

I'm glad I've matured from that A LOT...ironically it's mostly due to being around so many atheists and gaining perspective.

These people don't rub me the wrong way--as long as they respect the boundaries of others with religion and carry out their religion in a peaceful manner.

You're only referring to "religious" people who criticize others for sinning, right?

Christians who believe in God and have accepted Jesus as their savior should definitely be striving for perfection, yes of course.

1.Who's to say they aren't striving for perfection?
2. That's your belief, and you can't apply that to everyone who shares a faith in the same person that you do.

I'm just saying if you're Christian it should be a priority to live life as perfect as possible.

That's not 'my' belief. That's what the word says and if you're really a follower of Christ you should know that. No one is perfect but striving for perfection is what God demands from us.

1 Peter 1:13-22

Read it :)
