“But the Bible says…”
“But the Bible says…”
you know what? screw option 1. It’s not allowed, and here’s why.
I do believe that the threat of Hell is an empty threat. But even if I were fully convinced that it isn’t, if God came down from the sky and told me that my cousin is going to Hell because of his sexuality, I would say “fuck you” to his face. I’d yell it. I’m not nearly selfish enough to choose to change my beliefs to go to heaven while so many equally decent people are denied the opportunity.
I just don’t want to have anything to do with your God and his sorry imitation of justice.
tbh if you’re one of my friends and you’re religious you have one of three options.
1. If you legitimately believe that I am going to go to hell for not believing what you believe (which the Bible and just about every religious text clearly states), make like the Westboro Baptist Church and convince me. If you’re my friend, you should think it worth your time and effort to try and save me from eternal damn suffering. I will probably resist, hard, but if you really believe I’m going to hell, as my friend, it should be a little tougher than that to get you to stop trying to keep me from burning, in fire, for forever (which is, again, what the Bible, and likely other religious texts, clearly states).
2. If you legitimately believe that there is a God who would condemn someone to an eternity of suffering for simply not believing and acting according to what he wants (and doesn’t ever come out and clearly say it), say “fuck you” to that God. Fuck the God who sends gay people to Hell for no other reason; fuck the God who, with all the cultures, religions and upbringings in the world, only has enough love for a tiny subset of people. Fuck that asshole and come party with your friends, the decent ones.
3. But you don’t actually believe that I am going to hell, do you? This post may be an exception, but you know that I am a very nice person who always has the best of intentions, and if not me, I know you know PLENTY of lovable, kind, decent-ass people who your religion says are going to like be on fire and screaming for infinity years. I think that this is the option most people I know take; it’s a compromise between what their religion tells them and what they want to believe.
Your damn book says that your amazing friend is going to hell, so
I think that if voldemort really wanted to kill harry potter the night the spell didn’t work on him he could’ve just picked him up and thrown him out a window given the fact that he was a one year old infant
like imagine if you’d never seen a dog and you saw a saint bernard and you were like, what’s that and then someone was like, thats a dog. and then you saw a chihuahua and you were like ok whats that and they were like, that’s a dog. wouldn’t you feel lied to? wouldn’t you sense that something was amiss
you could give me a project on the day i was born and tell me it was due 80 years from that day and i would still wait 79 years and 364 days to start the project

In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to run the Boston marathon. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” However, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire marathon.The photographs taken of the incident made world headlines, and Kathrine later won the NYC marathon with a time of 3:07:29.
