Let's continue down the religion path, shall we?
My problem this time is with the people who put their hands solely in the hands of their god. I can't tell you how many times that someone has said, "God will show you" or "I'll pray and God will answer me" or "God will take care of it". Then, if something positive happens- God helped me! If nothing happened- it's his will. Bullshit!
Every individual is in control of his or her life. You choose what direction you want to take; you choose what actions you want to make. It's is obvious that if there was a god, he is all for us choosing. For those of you who think our lives are pre-determined, please kill yourself. If life was pre-determined, set out by God, then you would be created to go to hell or created to go to heaven. What kind of loving god would do that? It would take away all meaning to life. Besides, if god did this, then why not make everyone good?
Especially now in this day and age, it's possible to do anything you want with your life. If you don't want to be a boy, you can be a girl. If you want to be a doctor, you can be a doctor. If you want to be rich, you can get a degree and start making the big bucks. There's no need to put everything in god's hands. If there is a god, he would be prouder if you climbed your way out of the dirt than if he had to pick your ass up and dust you off. Besides, people who rise to the top know what hardwork and dedication is, thus, giving more meaning to the value of life.
I am pro-choice too. To answer your question Johnny, all we need to do is open the good book. God is completely for murdering children. "...And if they give birth, I will slaughter their beloved children." (Hosea 9:11-16 NLT) and " Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children. (Isaiah 13:15-18 NLT)" Guess that puts an end to the Christianity view of "pro-life". Yeah, god really gives a shit about the children. I'm surprised that he prefers "blood of the lamb" to "blood of the baby". The bible endorses death, death and more death...oh yeah, and kill everyone who doesn't agree with you.
Religion is a waste of time and millions of people are going to be disappointed when they learn that God doesn't give a shit about them. Oh wait, no they won't because there is no god. Too bad, it's life, we all die. Religion just masks reality. The best thing you can do is get off your ungrateful ass and try to make the world a better place so that we can all enjoy what little time we have.
