Sit down Christian!

I found this link on my friend Matthew's blog page and I had to pass it along:

So you want to talk about homosexuality? YOU want to talk about homosexuality? You want to talk about homosexuALITY?

Sit down CHRIStian. Give me that bible youíre waving before you hurt yourself. Iím going to resist the temptation to snatch it from your hands and beat you with it. I am your worst nightmare, a Texas preacher who knows The Book better than you do.

You cannot wave your unread bible and scare me. I know its larger story and I will tear you a new biblical asshole."

Go read the rest of it. It's a brilliant refutation of most of the "scriptural" pronouncements against homosexuality, by a Christian preacher who isn't afraid to point a finger when homophobic bigots try to disguise their hate and fear as "faith".

I'm not a religious person, but I was raised by good parents who taught me the importance of loving my fellow human beings and accepting, respecting, and appreciating their differences, while staying open to the many similarities. It seems like a good and moral way to live. If your God thinks otherwise, he's unwelcome in my house. Somehow though, I suspect that if your God teaches intolerance, he's not the God you think he is. Check for hoofs.
