    Hatred Towards Gays In Religion

    When I was in eighth grade, a rumor went through my school that I was gay and dating one of my friends. The town is very conservative/Catholic/Republican, and needless to say, it spread like wildfire. A couple of very nasty girls who hated gays were friends with...

    I Don't Know

     I don't know, maybe it's just cause I don't get it myself, but religion really creeps me out. If you don't believe in a god, or whatever, where did it come from? I don't understand how people can be so sure of something that there is little factual evidence for. So sure...

    Well I could go on about certain things I saw growing up and how taking religion too seriously alters ones thought process. My grandma was (still is I should say) a very well educated person period but especially for her age group. She is currently 94 and pretty has what today...

    Of meeting my death at the hands of a serial killer.  I have been baptised, I believe in and pray to Jesus.  But I cringe at questions, like at the hospital................."are you Christian?"     I am not.      I...

    & Terrorists Too

    I don't want you knocking on my door, passing me little free booklets proclaiming the end of the world. I don't want you preaching to me about how your GOD is THE GOD & how I'm bound to go to HELL for not believing what you do. It makes me sick & I'm liable to...

    I am scared of them. I was never a religious person and yet I grew up perfectly normal. I will never commit any sort of hate crimes against any human beings. I believe that there is someone who is watching over us. I also believe that people who are overly fanatical about their...

    One Thing I'm Scared Of:

    I think I have just found out the one thing I am scared of: Hate. I have just come to realize that even the people that you feel should always love you are capable of hate. Family is supossed to be full of unconditional love. Even if one thinks that it's an "unforgivable sin" (in...

    And I'm a Born-again Christian....

    I have no qualm whatsoever with any particular religion or denomination....it's only when it's carried to extremes by fanatics (in the most frightening sense of the word), that I think they're dangerous.  And I think that applies to all of the religions, not just one. ...

    I'm Dating The Son Of A Pastor

    I'm dating the son of a pastor, and nothing gets me more anxious than when we visit his family or (sadly) when he or I have to communicate with them. They're the type that don't acknowledge secular holidays, verbally frown upon reading or watching films that may be against the...

    Islam: A Home Of Tolerance, Not Fanaticism.

    Coming to Islam in my late twenties, after years as a wandering pop star, one of the first interesting things I learnt was that the word Islam itself comes from salâm or peace. It is a faith far away from the violence, destruction and terrorism we have seen in recent days. The...
