Christianity and Finatics READ THIS, DAMN IT!!!

I've been reading/writing a bit of making fun of Christians, and it's starting to get to me a little.

I'm with the rest of you; I hate the Christians who try to shove their beliefs down my throat, and try to convert me to a religion that would condem to to eternal hell. There's a bit of flawed logic in that...

But I can't in good conscience go around bashing Christians. Yes, I hate the finatics, but really, I dislike all finatics, even the ones I agree with. I don't believe in a single god, nor do I try to live my life by rules written down 2000 years ago. It's just not going to happen. But I don't mind that others do, and I don't feel that I can make fun of them when I ask the world to not make fun of me.

My best friend's mother is like a second mother to me. I call her 'Mom', at her insistance. I care about her deeply, and love her, for all her faults. She's one of the most devout Christians I know, but she doesn't have a problem with me being gay. She says "I figure if God wanted you to be straight, he'd have made you straight, and who am I to judge His decisions?" Her oldest daughter is bisexual. Her (my best friend's older sister's, that is) first words to me were "I think it's so cool that you're so out and proud about being a lesbian."

I won't ask anyone, ever, to subscribe to my point of view. I know that Christians aren't the best group of people, but like everything, not all of them are bad. They do a lot of good work, and while I don't always agree with why they do it, I can't fault them for it.

I've been yelled at, spit at, had children pulled away from me by Christian finatics. I've been attacked, been bashed, been put down by Christian finatics. But I can't let the actions of a few taint an entire, diverse group.

I don't like every Christian, nor would I think that they would all like me. I know that there are some people out there who are so set in their ways that they would hate me. But I've found that a lot of people, when approached as humans, and with a touch of kindness, return with humanity and a somewhat open mind.

That's my schpiel, thanks for reading. I'll be here all week. lol

That is one of the best

That is one of the best points ever...fanatics are always the downside, but the rest deserve respect. There are fanatics everywhere, and we tend to judge religions by fanatics (Islam, Christianity, Scientology [yes, Tom Cruise IS a fanatic], Catholicism...), but if we see the rest, some of them actually do a lot of good to this world.
