Growing up you believe the world is meant to be the way it is. The older I get the more I realise that this is not the case. The world is full of injustices and atrocities that governments and the voice of faith expect us to accept, though with each passing year they grow fewer and fewer, at least one would hope. I have created this blog as a space for me to rant about all things science, politics, philosophy and religion, before it’s too late and the vessel of new atheism propelled by a growing surge in secularism solves all of the world’s problems for good.

Lesbian Anglican priest loses faith

I'm incredibly agitated at the recent news that an lesbian Anglican priest is quitting after years of bullying and persecution by church goers and its religious leaders.

It always astounds me how judging, condemning and hating the religious can be when it comes to homosexuality. Especially considering the extent to which Christianity claims its, as well as by its followers, to be such an all loving and accepting group.

I've been told many times by certain Christians that they love their enemies as much as they love their friends as we are "all made in the image of God", according to the Bible. Clearly though, this doesn't trickle down through religious leaders and the literature to most so professed "Christians", who in many instances tend to be a great deal more malicious, conniving and judgmental than the majority of non-theists. Which book have they been reading? Or is it just that the Bible is and always has been a multitude of books and messages all wrapped into one. He's an all knowing God, but boy is he and his message so incredibly vague...

How long are such Christians going to try and have their cake and eat it too? If you want to try and upload your "superior" moral position over everyone else, at least try and practice what you preach.

I can't count the amount of times I, as an Atheist, have spoken, argued, debated with Christians about their beliefs and life choices who then hit you with a line similar to; "well at the end of the day it's my choice and I'll live by it, so why do you care?" Good question... So how come so many Christians give homosexuals and pro-homosexuality/equality lobbyists such a hard wrap? Isn't it their choice, that they have to live by, so why do you care? FOCUS ON YOURSELVES!

It should be no surprise how little these Christians really care about equality when clearly they expect a great deal from everyone else than they do themselves. Hmmm...
