I Am Going to Say Something Controversial

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,619 People

    I am tired of living in a heteronormative world

    where religious beliefs and bias opinions override the truth. Religion is something that should remain personal. However, I feel that religion is something that contorts many believers minds into oblivion. I'm not saying that everyone with a religion acts this way, it's just...

    This might sound terrible,

    but it makes me so mad when girls sleep around and get knocked up by accident because they were careless and have a baby that they didn't really want, when meanwhile there's so many women out there that want a baby more than anything but can't have one.

    My fellow followers of God,

    the allowance of homosexual marriage is based in legality not morality or even spirituality. Th bible has its views, other people have their views, however while you have every right not to condone it, it is highly advised that you not vote against it (if you don't believe in...

    They say in the bible to not cast your pearls

    before swine, what would that make the really loud fundies against LGBT relationships? I think it would make them swine by their own definition. "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear...

    I always hear the bible

    as a reason for hatred against LGBT people but what no one says is the whys or hows. This is what I am interested in. They quote from the bible but they never really truly get at why. Who says your God is just for you? Are you admitting you hear voices that tell you that you...

    I think it's funny how everyone forces you to

    accept gay marriage by forcing it into our justice system, churches, organizations, politics, music, television shows, and schools. And they're excuse is "We're here, we're queer, get used to it." If someone says they support gay marriage, everyone respects and supports them...

    I don't understand how people can dismiss the

    I am a right wing conservative Christian.

    I believe the Bible is the inspired word of God. I believe that we are living in the end times. I love all people as God does. If he is not Lord of your life you are rejecting him as Savior. This is your choice, freewill. God doesn't send anyone to hell, you make that decision...

    that they don't believe in marriage. That's there opinion. I understand that some people think it's a financial burden, and not worth the money. That is true in many cases. I understand that some people don't believe they need a marriage document, just to prove that they're in...

    I read a great quote today about how a 16 year

    old girl can't adopt a child because she is too young, doesn't have stable income, and probably doesn't have that stable of a household. But yet if she gets pregnant by any means she is forced to have that child. Does that sound fair to you? Or how about the article I was just...

    Truly, God is nothing

    but a myth. The church is even corrupt by its ways. Religion is like this: love me or go to hell and suffer. Honestly, it's fine to really have faith but in the end of the day, it's nothing but a myth. Propaganda and scapegoats are used nowadays for religion to gain more brain...

    I'm pro-choice, I never want children, I have tattoos and piercings, and dye my hair unnatural colors. I'm controversy personified. And what's better is that I know I'm not the only one.
