“Properly read, the Bible is the most potent force for atheism ever conceived.” ~ Isaac Asimov
I walked away from religion because I read the Bible myself and I realized that the Bible God hates Women. Which is the reason I do not believe that you can be a Christian and a Feminist at the same time. You can only be both if you cherry picked the Bible. For one, that religion is built on the notion that Men are superior to Women; Women were created for men, to be submissive and under their authority. Imagine being groomed to believe that your gender is responsible for suffering and all the bad things that happen on earth. That was not something i wanted to pass on to my daughter.
The Bible prohibits homosexual behaviour. This is why I struggle to understand why LGBTQ’s want to be part of that religion or any other religion whose doctrines are clearly against their sexuality. It’s clear as crystal in the Bible, that homosexual behaviour is a sin. Remember Sodom and Gomorrah? While homosexuality was not the only sin in which the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah indulged, it appears to be the primary reason for the destruction of the cities.
Why do you feel the need to worship a Deity, who supposedly created the way you are and turns around to say, you are committing a detestable act or sees you as inferior?
Why do people find it hard to damn these organised religions and just walk away from it?
After all, these Gods were created in the image of humans. They are based on the ideologies of a certain group of people. Why is it so hard for us to see it?
I mean, what God would create a woman to have menstrual cycles and then turn around to call her dirty when she is on her period?
Or would send Bears to kill children because they laughed at Elijah for being Bald, when he could have just made the hair grow back?
Only the one invented by MEN.
