Warning: agnosticism  
Have made many icons... still going to make more though. But I want to go grocery shopping before I go back to PS...

Mum's watching this documentary on kids who believe in the word of the bible and stuff. They host sermons and all that.

It makes me sick.

Seriously. :/ Probably because I can't imagine being brought up like that. Mum didn't foist religion on me, and I just can't imagine... ugh. All I see are young bigots in the making, and their parents using the bible as an excuse for what they do. And let's not even go into the "channeling the spirit of God" bullshit.

I would like to be one of those people that can say "hey, I don't mind" but I actually do. Those kids are gonna be so fucked up when they grow up. Oh, and they're not "let's accept everyone!" type. They're the "everyone's gonna burn in hell because they're all sinners! I need to convert!"

... I'm done. I just had to let that out. <.<

Oh, and thank you for the lovely Halloween card, isisanubis! ♥ ♥ *hugs*

It is wrong. And the kids became... well. They have a fear of the Devil. That's why they are the way they are. Not love for mankind, but because they fear something imaginary.

And the kids were all "homophobes, etc are all going to hell! I have to save them from eternal damnation!"

D: I'd like to go to hell, thanks. I'd have many friends.

These are the kind of kids I grew up with. Unfortunately, dh has an aunt who is like this too. I can't talk to her any more. She was so offensive last time I talked to her, I couldn't take it. And her daughter, who is 20 or 21 now, was even worse when I saw her last year (she actually insinuated that I was a horrible parent and then she made some awful comment about how she would give me parenting advice except she knew I didn't want it -- I believe I told her at that point that she didn't know the first thing about parenting and she was right, I didn't want any parenting advice from her.)

Shutting up now. This has clearly touched a sore spot with me:P

Oh ugh:( That's just awful:(

I grew up in Southwest Florida in the '80s and people weren't lynching anyone, but the attitudes were not good either. I had people tell me I was going to hell just because I didn't believe in Christ. Whatever.

Oh yeah, those people. Let's just forget they exist. That girl grew up in a family where they think it's fine to parcel out advice based on their strict beliefs. I look at her and see the choices she's made and know my kids will not be making the same choices and I feel good about that.

As to her wanting to give me parenting advice, I wasn't exactly behaving in a very adult manner. I do have moments where I lose my temper (especially on vacation). I'm not a perfect mom, but I think the balance will be ok.

omg, I'm so with you on that! It really is sickening that people use religion to foster hatred and fear of something (like Hell) which doesn't exist (at least the way they say it does... I think of Hell as a personal thing, something inside you, not a place... if that makes any sense?).

*big hugs*
Lenre Li: Colin - eyelashesuniversaldogma on October 25th, 2011 05:16 pm (UTC)
It really is. :( Whatever happened to acceptance? This is why I like other religions, like Buddhism or something. They're cool.

Hahah, your own personal hell. Yeah, I get you... very well, actually.

*hugs tightly* ♥ ♥ ♥
what a catch.rocketgirl2 on October 26th, 2011 03:04 am (UTC)
Isn't it depressing when people raise their children to be the crazy, bigoted sort of religious? Always makes me cry. :\

It's a sad waste of... well, potential. They could be so much more, but they decide to follow on outdated ideas and bigotry.

I literally felt sick when I saw it. My head and stomach hurt. :/
