Religion is actually a topic that has been sticking out to me a lot lately. I was raised in a VERY Christian home and honestly I can’t remember missing a day of church in my life (my family goes to church while we’re on vacation, just to give you a picture). Personally I never really got too into it. I go mainly to avoid needless conflicts with my mother, and also because my pastor happens to be freaking epic. Lol
One thing I do see however, is a gigantic misunderstanding of organized religion. Now, I’m sure we’re all aware that there are several different branches of Christianity. One analogy that could be used is stereotyping in high school (you know, the goths, the preps, the jocks, etc… my church would be considered a drifter I would say…or a goth. Not too sure yet. lol). There are several different churches, and several different preachers, with several different views of ‘how to fix the world’ essentially. This is where the wrong people step up.
You may have heard of the man who stood by the fresh grave of a young homosexual who had been murdered, holding up a sign that said “he is burning in hell now”. This is completely unacceptable and should not be tolerated. Also, this is one of the examples of the wrong people; the people who are portraying Christians to be insensitive bastards who only care about themselves. Well, let me tell you this before this comment turns into a hub (I may just do that now, thanks for the inspiration! Even though this comment is completely off the topic of the original question…lol). This is not the way that anything, right or wrong, should be handled. I personally, would have taken the liberty of punching the ass out right then and there, white collar or not. Where I go to church, I wear Tripp pants and I’m still accepted and treated like a human. Where I go to church, we have biker Sunday. Where I go to church, we baptize our pets (seriously, we had a horse last time. Iiiit was interesting…). Where I go to church, I’m not worried about my gay friends being criticized or made fun of. Where I go to church, we have a picture of Jesus on a chopper! People who make Christians look like egotistical asswipes, as far as I’m concerned, you’re burning in hell now.
