    There are currently 203 stories in the group 'I Don't Believe In God', 33 of those stories are written by believers with the aim of converting the group members. It is my opinion that we need to respect one and others right to our own beliefs. I feel it to be rude, arrogant...

    People who only date people

    who are curvy/overweight are just as capable as being shallow as people who only date people who conform to society's standard of attractiveness.

    Homosexuality Being A Sin

    For all the people who quote the Bible, in the OT in Leviticus it was also a sin to eat pork an shellfish. It was a sin to have one's hair cut, have tats, piercings. It was a sin to wear clothes of different materials. It was a sin for women to wear pants. It was a sin to...

    Racism Isn't Over And Blacks Aren't A Minority

    Racism has decayed in a lot of ways today, but it still exists in different forms and isn't really going anywhere. That's just the truth of it. White privelage DOES exist, despite our "melting pot" propaganda and guise. TV ads are NOT as interested in catering to "minorities" as...

    Muslims are treated poorly

    because a lot of times on the news, they specifically state the group of people committing the crime were Muslims. if the standards were the same for other major religions, it'd make those religions look bad too. there's good and bad in every group. stop discriminating.

    It might be just for shock value.

    Although, very likely I hold an opinion that runs contrary to mainstream. I hold several opinions, in fact, and i like that EP can be a forum for expressing myself. So, just shut your corn holes, ok, missy miss and mister bible-thumper dude?
