    Rammed Down Your Throat!

    There are few things I like rammed down my throat, and religious fanatics are the very least, as well as political elitists. Religion is the dogmatisation of a sound spiritual idea, which results in so stagnation of purpose and sight. It's Gods honest truth! It's in the...

    Legalistic Pride

    In Jesus' day, they were called Pharasies. They were more concerned with outside appearance, rather than inward attitude. Genuine Christians think as follows: When I say...."I'm a Christian".....I'm not shouting......that I'm clean livin....I'm whispering....I was lost...

    I don't like the word religion.

    This word brings up many negative connotations. What I have is an intimate and personal relationship with my heavenly Father God who created me, His son Jesus who paid for my sin and gave me His righteousness, and His Holy Spirit who lives in my heart and is my helper. I have...

    I Don't Want Your Charity!

    Let me start by saying that although I have a service dog I am perfectly capable of doing things for myself. I find it very embarrassing to accept any help, even when I need it, which is why it really pissed me off when a "good Christian girl" decided to make me her charity case...

    Why Cant The Fundamentalists Just Leave Everyone Alone?

    One thing Ive began to notice ever since I was in the 4th grade has never ceased to irk me. I remember my parents preaching to me about how I must accept God into my life, that if I dont that I will burn into the lake of fire for all of eternity. I remember watching t.v. where...

    Everyday Of My Life

    So I'm openly non-religious, and openly bisexual in a small minded, all Christian town. So of course, I'm openly mocked, scorned, hated by most. What I fail to understand is why people think that everything I do is now controlled by the devil, whether I am volunteering or getting...

    I Am Indeed

    I will never be able to acquaint myself with religious people. We're just polar opposites. I can only handle so much bullshit before I snap and I would say and do a lot more if I could do so without some type of law intervening. They prefer to lead a life of dominion, they're...

    Your Convictions Aren't Helping.

    Don't get me wrong. I love my husband. That said, his beliefs about God, church, and spirituality drive me nuts. The guy has OCD and he grew up in two legalistic conservative denominations, so I understand why he's legalistic now. He recognizes it sometimes, and he lets me call...

    Pride Comes Before A Fall

    When I say that 'I am a Christian', I am not shouting that 'I am clean living.  I'm whispering 'I was lost, but now I'm found and forgiven. When I say 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need God to be my guide...
