Okay time for a rant. This post is really pissing me off and here’s why.
1. No where in the Bible does it say God “hates fags” the entire message of the Bible is love. That’s the core message and anyone who says otherwise hasn’t read it.
2, “worship us hardcore or you go to hell” is just bullshit. All you need for eternal love is to accept Jesus as your saviour you don’t need to go to church or do any rituals if you don’t want to but you sure as hell can if that’s your thing.
3. “you better love everyone around you and God a lot,” the message of the Bible is love as I said early, so you’re expected to try to live your life in love. (could you imagine the amount of problems this would solve if everyone lived like that?!) but God knows you’re not perfect, He knows you can’t but He just wants you to try.
4. Respecting people is a good thing. Again it’s the same principle as number three.
Satanism is dark shit. All this light fluffy stuff you see floating around tumblr is the gateway stuff. It’s to draw you in. My mom has a friend that was raised within a Satanist group. She was raped on an alter as a sacrifice by a priest in front of the entire church several times; her and several other children. She was bled for Satanic blood rituals as a child. Her childhood was stolen from her and she was traumatized. She was lucky to escape.
Don’t get me wrong guys, I love Supernatural. I just know what’s fictional and whats not. I can love God and thoroughly enjoy the show too.
So just please, please stop with this post and others like it, because it makes me sick to my stomach every time I see them. both religions are being horribly misrepresented.
HOT DAMN THANK YOU
Shit like this really pisses me off. Don’t just scroll past it, read it if you still think Satanism is all hearts and Lucifer and rainbows.
Stop. Shaming. My. Religion.
As an atheistic-Buddhist, I feel that I should balance out this argument.
First of all, the bible does say, in Leviticus 18:22, “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.”
Sex is a very natural thing, and a fact that everyone in our modern society has to live with is that people of the same gender do “lay” with other people of the same gender as one would with a member of the opposite gender. It happens all the time in fact, and so the argument that “god hates fags”, while insensitive and crass, is in a way a valid argument.
This also invalidates the statement that “the entire message of the bible is love”.
All religions have some form of extremists. These are people who take the teachings of said religion completely literally, to the point of obscuring the grander message.
At its core (at least from what I gathered from my 13 years growing up with Christianity, going to church, saying grace/prayers every day, etc.), Christianity is about living the way that Jesus Christ (supposedly) did. Christianity is about sacrificing your needs and forgoing as many wants as possible, for the sake of meeting the needs of others (the concept of “love everyone” is derived from this). From my limited knowledge and research, as well as living with an atheistic-Satanist brother, Satanism (quite a misunderstood religion) is about focusing on achieving your own personal goals, without purposely interfering with the achievement of other people’s goals. Satanism is a “don’t bother me, and I won’t bother you,” religion. To be honest, I think many people who call themselves Christians act more like Satanists. It’s unfortunate that extremists exist, who give both of these religions a bad name. We have homosexual-damning Christian groups, and Satanic cults who do acts that are indeed awful, tragic, and condemnable. One thing that people don’t know about Satanists is that they often have have the view that “nothing is sacred,” and thus poke fun at almost anything, especially other religions. This is almost always taken offensively and I believe that is where the whole post above comes from.
Buddha would most likely say:
“Be aware of the tongue’s anger and control your tongue. Let go of the tongue’s wrongs, and practice virtue with your tongue.”
if you honestly believe tumblr has taught you more than school in any way and that tumblr is more valuable than education please sit down. heres a glass of water. prepare yourself. youre wrong. yeah. ill give you a minute
