i wish i was joking

You know what? Fuck that. Everyone on this website seemed like a cool person, but now I am pissed. People who aren’t Christian don’t seem to understand that we actually are being bullied. Just yesterday, at work, one of my coworkers who seemed like such a nice guy asked me if I was religious. I answered yes and told him that I was Christian. He is an atheist and then proceeded to tell me about the statistical improbability of my God versus every other god actually existing and how science was the only way to live. After thatI said nothing. I didn’t want to fight and he has every right to believe and say what he wants, but it saddened me. I believe in both and people don’t think that can happen. People make so many fucking judgements because you say you’re Christian now. “Oh, you must hate gays and not believe in abortion” or “wow, so you’re going to be a virgin forever?” That happens all too much. Not all of us are the stereotype and this whole site seems to be protecting anyone but us. I have as much right to think what I do as you have as much right to think I am wrong. Lots of Christians aren’t like the Westboro Baptist church. I, and many others, believe that Christ’s name is a loving peaceful one that shouldn’t be used to slander or justify hatred. My faith is built upon a knowledge that Christ died on the cross because he loved everyone and is absolving them of their sins, but people only see me (because I have a southern accent) as some redneck, idiotic, bitch who hates homosexuals, abortions, and the very idea of science. This website is all about acceptance and shit, but I’m not seeing it for me. I don’t see acceptance at my school anymore. This post, while funny, has made me deeply angry. Everyone of my teachers and almost everyone of you on this website are all about not judging and seeing that others are just as equal as you and what not, but you don’t see it any more. All you fucking see are the picketers that make the news because they shut down some free clinic or because they want to crucify someone. Where do you see the people like me? Where do you see quiet, peaceful Christians that are willing to love and accept everyone? You don’t because the media has geared this generation into thinking that religion is something that segregates us rather than brings us together. I’m so fucking sick of it.

  • Guy in my class:

    Sir, what if we had a gay P.E. teacher? That'd be bad because he'd be looking at all the guys in shorts.

  • Teacher:

    You're assuming that all gay teachers are pedophiles.

  • Guy:

    Well...yeah.

  • Teacher:

    Carl I absolutely promise you that NO ONE in this school wants to have sex with you

We make Tumblr themes
