Angry Atheist. How I feel about my views.

funny how, religious people go on atheist sites and call me an angry Atheist when I'm defending science. its an atheist site! i don't go on religious sites and tell u how science is right...i keep that on my own blog. sick of being harassed on atheist FB pages, news attacking atheists, etc… and people trying to save me because i trust science. A lot of these people are like…”why so angry?” ..why do you think? I’m respectful enough to stay of your sites…please do the same.

Ok, I vented lol. Now to the point..
I used to be even more bold...almost preachy with my Anti-theist ideals. My partner opened my eyes to the fact that there is a point in an argument, where you have to say to yourself "this person is not even listening or open to what I'm saying" and its time to just leave the discussion. I have never gone on any religious site/page and told them what I believe. But I used to think I could "free" people from religion. This can't be done on one experience. The person that needs to be "freed" through their own life experiences, and see that religion is false, and science is learning more all the time.

I'm getting to the point that I'm standing up for my ideals, maybe make my points known, but not pushing them. If some one attacks me personally, I will obviously tell them they need to leave it alone or I will retaliate in heated debate. But I won't be commenting my views on news articles or FB Atheist pages anymore. Will still post them here and my personal FB though. I will still post in full "ranting" force on here, everyone needs an outlet of some sort. I hope for more readers, it would be nice to hear other (peaceful) views on my posts/rants.

Pot Calling Kettle Black

Pot calling Kettle Black

Monday, January 9th, Pope Benedict stated that gay marriage is a threat to humanity. As a person of alternative life style, I find this offensive and a pathetic attempt at diverting attention. It seems as though the Vatican is trying to divert attention because of all the negativity it has received for child abuse cases and failing challenges against science.

 Over recent years, more scandals and child abuse cases are being brought to light. There are so many cases of abuse (including same sex abuse) that I’ve lost track of them all, but I’m sure you can search “Vatican child abuse” and have a few days reading of news articles.  One of his key arguments is the “Traditional Family” values. I know same sex parents and heterosexual parents. I grew up in a “Christian home” with a very christian mother and VERY liberal father. The dysfunction was not less or better than any other human couple could do… gay or straight. No family is perfect. I can say that the same sex parents are just as loving parents as my family. The key thing is that the child has a supportive & loving home that encourages learning and growth. The Pope argues that children of same sex parents lack ether female or male guidance. I completely disagree. For example, a lesbian couple with a child can have an uncle or friend as a male role model for a son, or vice versa.

There are leaders of the Catholic Church are being helped in the hiding of their sick crimes against children by the Vatican. The Vatican likes to say it pro-life; I’d say it is more pro-control, and only now changing some of its policies because people are starting to see how out dated and manipulative the catholic beliefs are. 

The credibility of the Vatican is waning. The Pope came out and said recently that the Big Bang could have happened, but if so… god created it. Are they now going to re-write Genesis? No, but they can’t fight science, so they try to manipulate it to “fit” their story. Millions people are dying of AIDS in Africa because until very recently the Vatican did not condone the use of a condom to save a partner from the disease. To this day, they still don’t condone condoms unless you are preventing transmission of diseases like AIDS. What about all the teens they tell NOT to use condoms? They would rather the teens abstain. I’m sorry…but most teens won’t, let us teach them to be safe before they regret it.

                I’m not a professional writer of any sort and I tend to be bold with my opinions, but I will continue to write about my stance against the Vatican. Their out dated ideals are appalling. I just hope that more people see the human, godless tendencies of the Vatican sooner than later, for the sake of society’s children.
