ben-c said: wow aight well i was a lil upset that u lost followers so i came to see why and now that i know why i completely understand everyone who unfollowed you, and i believe i'll follow suit, because it's absolutely disgusting to oppose gay marriage based on ANYTHING, most of all religion. your attitude of "my religion is more important that your happiness and love" is the reason i fucking hate religion. goodbye.
I’m sorry :(
seriously, it’s just what I believe in, and I understand if you unfollow because it’s fine with me, but I have to base my religion on everything. God loves everybody. Even gay people, and I don’t understand why people say why not, but I’m sorry I upset everyone. I’m trying to answer these as patiently and calmly as I can :(
holy shit no it’s not “just what you believe in” it’s “just” what millions of people believe in and it’s literally life threatening to the LGBT+ community.
and yea, you do have to base your religion on “everything”!!! try reading the bible if you actually wanna base it on “everything”!! do you eat shrimp or wear clothing made from multiple materials? guess what fucker, you’re going to hell!
"GOD LOVES EVERYBODY" OH BOY THATS MY PERSONAL FAV. OH YEA, GOD LOVES EVERYBODY, EXCEPT THE LITERALLY MILLIONS OF PEOPLE HE STRAIGHT UP MURDERED.
BUT IF YOU STILL BELIEVE “GOD LOVES EVERYONE” AND THAT THAT IS BASIS FOR DENYING MY BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS, LETS TAKE A LOOK AT GOD’S LOVE, SHALL WE?
"Consecrate to me every first-born that opens the womb among Israelites, both man and animal, for it belongs to me" exodus 13:2 makes him sound like he sure loves those babies, killin em and all!!
"I have wiped out many nations, devastating their fortress walls and towers. Their cities are now deserted; their streets are in silent ruin. There are no survivors to even tell what happened. I thought, ‘Surely they will have reverence for me now! Surely they will listen to my warnings, so I won’t need to strike again.’ But no; however much I punish them, they continue their evil practices from dawn till dusk and dusk till dawn." So now the LORD says: "Be patient; the time is coming soon when I will stand up and accuse these evil nations. For it is my decision to gather together the kingdoms of the earth and pour out my fiercest anger and fury on them. All the earth will be devoured by the fire of my jealousy. "On that day I will purify the lips of all people, so that everyone will be able to worship the LORD together. My scattered people who live beyond the rivers of Ethiopia will come to present their offerings." zephania 3:6 boy, that’s a personal favourite
So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. “This is what you are to do,” they said. “Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin.”……”Go and hide in the vineyards. When the women of Shiloh come out for their dances, rush out from the vineyards, and each of you can take one of them home to be your wife! And when their fathers and brothers come to us in protest, we will tell them, ‘Please be understanding. Let them have your daughters, for we didn’t find enough wives for them when we destroyed Jabesh-gilead. And you are not guilty of breaking the vow since you did not give your daughters in marriage to them.’” judges 21:10 has mass murder AND rape, oh boy, thanks god!
"I will sweep away everything in all your land," says the LORD. "I will sweep away both people and animals alike. Even the birds of the air and the fish in the sea will die. I will reduce the wicked to heaps of rubble, along with the rest of humanity," says the LORD. "I will crush Judah and Jerusalem with my fist and destroy every last trace of their Baal worship. I will put an end to all the idolatrous priests, so that even the memory of them will disappear. For they go up to their roofs and bow to the sun, moon, and stars. They claim to follow the LORD, but then they worship Molech, too. So now I will destroy them! And I will destroy those who used to worship me but now no longer do. They no longer ask for the LORD’s guidance or seek my blessings." Zephaniah 1:2 god killing literally everyone because he got a little jealous
"Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge! Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you," says the LORD. "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction" Jeremiah 50:21 nah dude kill that ENTIRE TOWN its cool im god lol
If a man is caught in the act of raping a young woman who is not engaged, he must pay fifty pieces of silver to her father. Then he must marry the young woman because he violated her, and he will never be allowed to divorce her.” deuteronomy 22:28 oh man another favourite, the law that says any women who’s raped can be sold to her rapist (at a pretty discounted price too!!) but you know, we should totally listen to the mistranslated “”rule”” against gay marriage and not this, because, you know, that’s what FITS with YOUR views
BUT YOU KNOW, GOD LOVES EVERYONE AND THAT’S TOTALLY GROUNDS FOR USING ONE SENTENCE THAT WAS TRANSLATED INTO HUNDREDS OF DIFFERENT LANGUAGE THAT YOU CHOSE TO INTERPRET A CERTAIN WAY IN ORDER TO DENY PEOPLE BASIC HUMAN RIGHTS
LETS GIVE AN EXAMPLE OF THIS, SHALL WE??
we’ll take this simple sentence and translate it into another language!!
we’ll do it a few more times……
obviously no match to the bibles HUNDREDS of translations, MANY by people who could BARELY write in the language they were tranlating…….
but you get the idea………
SEE HOW THAT DOESNT REALLY WORK
SEE HOW TRANSLATING ONE SENTENCE JUST A FEW TIMES COMPLETELY SKEWS THE MEANING OF IT
GO SIT YOUR DISGUSTING ASS IN THE CORNER AND THINK ABOUT THAT FOR A WHILE, HM?
I DONT CARE IF YOURE ANSWERING THEM ~PATIENTLY AND CALMLY~ IF I PATIENTLY AND CALMLY MURDER SOMEONE THAT DOESNT MAKE ME LESS OF A MURDERER IT MAKES ME JIM MORIARTY
NOW RETHINK THE ACTUAL REASON BEHIND YOUR COMPLETELY TOXIC VIEWS AND STOP BALMING IT ON YOUR RELIGION YOU ABHORRENT CANTELOUPE
