    On the Fence

    God in general is something that I'm on the fence about. One side of me wants to believe that there is something out there for me. The other half doesn't believe in him at all....this half tends to hate what he and religion stand for. The fact that gay/bi/lesbians are going to...

    In The Aspect Of This

    Religion is merely man made tradition, as are all of they're pagan holidays that they label holy... Shame I mean.  Why do men live their lives daily in sin and repent on Sunday I will never know..Jesus Christ IS our Sabbath, it is no longer a pre -set day. He became our Sabbath...
