The Jesus Rant

religious-fanatic-1024x571Here we go.

Time for a rant.

I’m confused. Someone clarify. I’m being serious.

You’re a bible thumper. You repeat the words of the “scripture” or what you believe to be and yet you sit there and judge others, their choices and how they live.

Jesus is supposed to be God but then he’s the son of God???? Then he dies, comes back from the dead, people say, “he is risen” while others call him Zombie.

There are people who spend time dissecting the bible for the sole purpose to discredit what is in there.

I honestly don’t have time for that but I will say this, I’m not a believer. I will always respect my grandmother in her beliefs when I speak with her other than that, don’t expect me to open the door to Jehovah Witnesses any time soon unless they want me to break out my witches bible which I have done before. It was funny to see them run the other way.

The one thing about me is my beliefs are personal and private. What I do in my own home is my business and my business alone. It’s not my authority to go and spread the “word” of my beliefs and my convictions.

The other day I had the displeasure of listening to two women talk about their bible courses. The same women who sit all day long doing absolutely no work and gossip. Not for nothing but I think gossiping is far worse than sitting there and judging a person. People make money off from gossiping (The Star Magazine, Us Weekly, to name a few).

This to me are the worse people of humanity (yeah I’m judging). These are the same people who hate animals. But yet they love Jesus. Really? Do you think Jesus went off kicking a dog or eating a cat because he got hungry. Love man kind but look at this child being taught, “God hates fags, but yet he’s ever loving of all man.” #Contradiction – Great way to raise your child ain’t it. SMH.

Religious-Fanatics

I grew up Catholic. I was the family member who lived in the church, I sang in the choir and taught religion instruction. True story.

But then one day, something happened. I had questions, a lot of questions. Why were we born sinners? Why were we not worthy of God? Why was Jesus exactly killed? Why did the Catholics have a white Jesus and the Baptist version had him a tad bit darker?

Guess what? Yep. No one had an answer.

As I grew up and discovered the world around me, I began my journey in other religions and spiritual faiths. I stopped believing in the Jesus concept when I was 16 years old. Quite a long time for anyone to try and convince me otherwise. Which leads to someone recently who tried and told me I couldn’t just banter back and forth if I had a friend who believed in Jesus and she prayed for me. I had to go with one or the other.

“Really”, I said, “and who made up this rule?”

People who are real accept their defects and remember they are human with human emotions. Things happen in their lives because they make it happen. They’re not waiting for a God to make it happen. That’s like frying an egg on a hot summer day. Chances are the shit won’t fry.

e15a6467182c8b0596e6b2b70e24a47cThe flip side to these type of religious fanatics is they don’t know how to live and let live. So what if you have haters, so what if this person thinks they are better. So what? Do they pay your rent? Nope. Not a damn dime. But they want to sit there and infiltrate on your life with religious bullshit about being saved. Saved from what?

In my experience, people who are on a religious zeal will be your friend only to convert you and when you do or say something they don’t agree with, they cut you off because you’re evil and they can’t be influenced to the “dark side”.

The funny thing is, they are on the dark side. They are doing exactly what evil suggest. Gossipy, whiny and judgmental. Guess we all know where you’re going. LOL!

Breaking Amish LA

I just happened to catch some of the last episodes in a Breaking Amish LA marathon.

Interesting how television has evolved by taking people out of their element and watching what happens by dropping them into a big city.

Such as Breaking Amish LA.

While I’m not all too familiar with the Amish life, my basic understanding is they are highly religious, they have their own laws and they only stay with their own kind. Any participation outside of their world would probably get them shunned.

So why would anyone agree to this?

The answer is simple. In the world that we live in, we are meant to experience life in every aspect and the words in a book called a bible should never dictate anyone life’s choice.

Lets be clear, this is my personal opinion and believe, because I do not believe in the bible. While some passage inside are very nice and can help with affirmations, it’s not the book of the law for me. Therefore it does not dictate who I am as a person, as a woman, it does not define my career, what I choose to write about and how I express that.

I think it’s very important that we learn the errors of our ways without feeling as though we are going to be punished for every mistake. Lust is a natural human emotion as long as you do not push your lust on someone who does not want it.

Women have a choice on who they decide to share their bodies with.  Men get upset when women choose not to share their bodies with them. I can go to a whole list of reason but the point is simply respect other’s wishes on how they choose to live.

It’s so sad that something so simple has become so complicated in this day and age of our technology. But as our technology grows our human behavior becomes more complex. People still try to exert their control and/or their belief system in someone else’s throat refusing to learn and accept that it doesn’t work.

Other than watching the roundtable discussion after the show with a very horrible talk show host (right next to Andy Cohen), it seems that this group is still conflicted in the Amish lifestyle and having to venture out.

See what happens in cases like this and in most cases, we grow up with a foundation. A foundation that our family teaches us that we can rely on, namely them. As we grow up, depending on our upbringing, etc, sometimes, resentment, lack of tolerance towards certain family values can lead to rebellion and exploring what life has to offer.

While I can get into the statistics of crime and murders this is not what’s relevant to this article. What is important is that some of these people chose a life outside of being Amish while instilling a practice of some form of religion.

While I personally don’t believe that religion should define a relationship (I’ve said this before) I can’t understand why people still believe that living this “holy life” in the name of a fictitious “God” gives them a right to believe they are better than everyone else.

A contradiction to their bible thumping beliefs.

Good luck to those people who were on this show and may all their dreams come true, whatever that may be.

Until then.

Loves and Hugs,
