We Are Who We Are

The recent rantings of Pope Benedict against,among others, transvestite individuals just emphasizes once again the bigoted attitude of Catholicism. No wonder that those, such as myself, who were brought up in the Roman Catholic faith have such a guilt complex. It is only in recent years that I have realized that I am not a bad person, I am who I am. Religious indoctrination has a lot to answer for.

I'm curious, have you ever read the Bible in its entirety? :)

I believe in God and hate organized religion. I call it the guilt trip.

I, for one am a converting Buddhist but was raised Baptist and have been criticized by many so called Christians for MY choice of following a different path. I tell them I chose a different path because the path I chosen wasn't about GUILT and JUDGEMENT unlike in the Christian faith. As you have seen in the recent news, the preacher in Gainesville, Fla was about to cause a worldwide conflagration over his bigoted and ignorant views of Islam. He started off saying that the Muslims were burning our flags and images of our presidents so this ignorant fool decides, "I'm going to have a Qu'ran burning Day to commemorate the victms of September 11th! because GOD told him to do it." Now, 9/11 was a very tragic day for all of us including Muslims (there were many muslims that died in the towers as well) that were not covered or spoken of in the media. Why didn't this preacher burn their Flags and images of their leaders? Because it would not have the same effect as burning thier holy book. If the ignorant fools of ALL religions would take the time to see how all religions are so much more similar than they are different life on this planet would be far more pleasant.

So true!
