Again, the stereotype that Christians hate homosexuals pushed forward by the Westboro Baptist Church is not to be taken seriously. I live in New York City. I have plenty of gay friends, male and female. They know about what I believe, and they respect me more than some other people because I don’t call them “fags” or tell them I hate them. Do you see how discussions work a lot...

decomposinghouses: Do some pastors use the bible to mooch tithes off of innocent people? Yes. Do some Christians preach at people relentlessly while they hide all of their sin away in the dark? Yes. Do some of the most insensitive and ignorant people in America claim to be of the Christian faith? Yes. Does the existence of terrible Christians necessarily disprove the existence of God and a...

As Glenn Greenwald put it: “The matrix broke today and an actual Yemeni was allowed to testify about drones in the Senate - he was brilliant.” (via hipsterlibertarian)

I think people misunderstand the implication, not the assumption it comes with. Let’s analyze the view of some: Assumption: Homosexuality according to the bible is a sin. I agree. Implication: Therefore, we should treat homosexuals with contempt and anger. I disagree. There is no reason, biblical or extrabiblical, that we should put homosexuality in some sort of a separate category that...

“I went through a phase where I was a conservative Christian, but I’m past that now.” Not only are statements like this snotty and reeking with arrogance, but they’re outright disrespectful and narrow-minded. Your days as a conservative Christian days were nothing more than a phase. Congratulations, you’re Thomas Hobbes. It doesn’t matter. What reason do you...

Someone who believes the bible is not necessarily always a “bible thumper”.. a lot of us are educated and know how reason works Plus, it’s not exactly sophistocated to come at someone with the assumption that they don’t know what they’re talking about just because they hold a different viewpoint than you do

The offensive nature of an opinion does not determine its accuracy. If the opinion is empirically substantiated, it doesn’t matter how much it offends, it should be protected simply because of the fact that it’s correct.
If you’re home on Tumblr all day, your “profound” statements probably have no evidence backed up behind them due to a lack of experience
