Who is the Christian god? Let me see…
-Punishes them for being as he created them.
-Condemns them to lives of suffering.
-Doesn’t like sin. Even though he created it and has the power to destroy it.
-Kill millions because he doesn’t like sin, and is apparently too lazy to eradicate it.
-Allegedly tells one man to gather two of every animal into a giant boat while he kills everyone else.
-Makes laws against doing things that he created humans to be able to do in the first place.
-Demands to be top priority.
-Condemns anyone who doesn’t make him top priority.
-Apparently isn’t cool with homosexuality- something he allegedly created.
-Realizes that people are starting to think for themselves or focus on other, less hateful gods, so he allegedly impregnates a woman with a physical form of himself that also has its own mind.
-Tells himself he is to die for everyone else’s faults, and is perfectly ok with it.
-Follows through with the plan of allowing himself to be killed for sins that he created in the FIRST PLACE, offering the people HE CREATED a chance to atone for their sins by praying to the human form of himself for doing things they WERE CREATED TO DO IN THE FIRST PLACE.
-Allegedly inspires a bunch of hateful, dominionist, rapey men to write horribly conflicting accounts of these events, and pass them from family to family in a huge game of telephone.
-Supposedly is planning some sort of Armageddon against a devil creature THAT HE CREATED IN THE FIRST PLACE in a battle for a world THAT HE SUPPOSEDLY HAS ALL CONTROL AND POWER OVER.
-Is supposed to be ALL POWERFUL and ALL KNOWING and ANSWERS PRAYERS but people are still afflicted with disease, famine, poverty, mental illness, and sadness. And all that these people truly learn (once they realize that their prayers aren’t actually being answered) is that all of the above suck ass and they’re not getting anywhere unless they do it themselves.
Oh, and through all of this- women, gays, the handicapped, and many many more people are not equal to straight, bigoted men. Don’t forget about that.
Know how I know all this? Because I was one of those Jesus-loving, church-going, prayer-saying, homophobic “hate the sin, love the sinner” bullshit, money-giving, SHEEP that blindly followed into what the trendy, hip, and totally relative Abercrombie-wearing pastor and his Mary-Kay touting stepford wife were going on and on and on about. Even though all of the rich folk totally got all the good seats in church, because, you know, my 5$ offering isn’t as much as their $1000 tithe.
FUCK Christianity. FUCK the lot of it. Wanna do some good? Do some good in the name of GOOD not in the name of some alleged god who gives 0 fucks about the world.
You don’t go to church for god. You go to church for status. Because if the Christian god is who he is supposed to be, churches wouldn’t matter. Megachurches wouldn’t exist. And neither would chronic illnesses that make every day a challenge for the people afflicted with them. Neither would hunger. Or war. Or hate. Or bigotry. Or sadness. If the ‘all knowing and all powerful’ omniscient being of Yaweh/Jehova/Jesus/God existed, do you REALLY THINK they would allow things to happen like the fucking bullshit in this article? Jesus loves the little children? My ass.
And no, I’m not an atheist (though most would agree with me). I’ll take my 10,000+ year old belief system over something that was thought up 3000 years ago as a way to control the masses any day.
