Anti-Gay Marriage, Are you serious?

    Homosexuality repulses good religious people and "Destroys the sanctity of marriage" according to them.  Are you serious?  What could two consenting adults who do not share your beliefs or your home who want to get married have to do with your marriage?

    Marriage is not a new practice nor is it specific to any one religion and therefore should not be governed by any such religion.  As it stands Marriage is the unity of two people who are legally bound to each other.  When two men or two women are in love and decide they want to take it to the next level of there relationship and share in a binding agreement before their God or their government it only concerns them and not YOU.  I personally absolutely support the rights of any gay man or woman who chooses to go through with a marriage because it is their right as an American citizen to follow whichever religious path they so choose and nobody has any right to infringe on there beliefs and practices.  Making it illegal to marry based on moral authority or on the authority of a specific religion is absolute bullshit and goes against everything this country was founded on.  Freedom of religion means that EVERYONE has the right to choose to believe how they choose to and practice that belief without interference from the government.  As far as all of you Anti-gay activists/religious fanatics are concerned, these people are not interfering with your beliefs and they are not coming into your churches protesting how you follow what you feel is the correct path in your life.  If you do not like what they are doing then you have every right to speak your mind.  You do not however have the right to pass laws against them doing what they feel is the right thing for them to do, it is unconstitutional and Anti-American.

    STOP THE HATE! Stop trying to force people to believe what you do. If you are truly a religious person and actually believe all the things your holy book of choice says then it is not your right to judge therefore you should just shut up and color.

Board of Education, Pres Obama. Are you serious?

    100,000 to 300,000 United States teachers will not be returning to the schools they teach at next fall.  REALLY!  That is exactly what we as a country need is more uneducated people!  Are you serious?

    The U.S. is one of the lowest scoring countries in the world on standardized tests in Reading Math and Science.  Who do they blame?  Not the parents that don't give a fuck about their children's education! No, they blame the teachers that are working day in and and day out to try and teach these kids with limited resources and out dated textbooks.  Why is it that we cant realize that we need to focus more on the most up to date and accurate information possible to improve our advances in both science and medicine?  I remember when I was in High School (10 years ago) I had books with the names of people my Mom when too school with on the inside cover. How is information that is nearly 20 years old going to educate someone when our advances from year to year are so vast that you would need to update them almost quarterly to keep them accurate?  What I believe we need to do is spend every bit of money required to ensure the children of this country are well educated rather than cutting costs.  We spend billions of dollars on war, foreign aid, prison reform, and welfare.  I believe that we should cut all money to everything else before we ever even consider cutting costs with education.  Were we to do this the other problems would take care of themselves.  Educated people commit less crimes than the uneducated which would dramatically reduce the prison population.  Educated people would find a better way to deal with our political differences with other nations that do not involve a full on declaration of war.  An educated person would not need to go on welfare because they would be intelligent enough to get a better job.  With more educated people we could find better more efficient ways of helping to feed, shelter, and improve the lives of other countries that are less fortunate than us. 

    So I say SHAME ON YOU Board of Education for not standing up for the importance of education in America, and Pres Obama SHAME ON YOU sir for supporting this idiocy!!!

Prayer? Are you serious?

    How many times have you seen someone post something like "(Any Disaster) happened please keep those involved in your prayers." Are you serious? Because that is exactly what they need is you setting alone in a room somewhere talking to yourself about how you want whatever God you believe in to help them. 

    Here is a thought, why not ask for something useful to them.  Your friend was in a car accident and may not pull through?  How about you ask for donations of food, money, or anything at all the family may need.  Natural disasters happen around the world and even here in the US all the time.  Do these good religious people send money? Do they send food? Do they volunteer to go help with clean up, rebuilding, or help feed the people involved? NO! They send there prayers.  PRAYERS! I will pray in 1 hand and shit in the other guess which will fill up the fastest!  I don't think that prayer is a bad thing.  It is one of the few harmless things that religions do. But come on people if you really care about your fellow man and want to help then do something about it don't just pretend to care for the benefit of self image. 

    In every religion the God or Gods gives mankind freewill.  So lets just pretend that he did that so when bad things happen you can freely will yourself to do something about it yourself rather than pray that said God will do it for you.  Do that and the world will be better for it.

Harold Camping. Are you serious?

     So Harold Camping for the 2nd time has proven how much of a complete Nut job he is and people still choose to follow him!

     Rapture round 2 was a no go, but who honestly expected anything more?  I certainly did not despite my endless jokes on Facebook about what i would do post rapture since as an Atheist i would be left behind.  How is it that this insane old man has so many followers?  My opinion is that people tend to grasp at whatever they can to make this life more liveable.  Take Religion in general for example every single religion has some version of an afterlife that is better than this one.  Why buy into it? Because of fear. Fear drives people to religion and once they are trapped into it they are stuck there.  In the case of the "Good", i use this term loosely, Christian followers of Mr. Camping they were sucked in back in 1994 when he first decided the world would definitely maybe come to an end, and once they were so invested in the idea of this modern day doomsday prophet they were compelled through fear to continue following him.  So now the best part.  After Camping was "Flabbergasted" that nothing happened on May 21, 2011 he decided that yet again he "misread" the signs and that what actually happened was that Jesus came down, invisible to all of us, and started his final judgement and that the world will actually end on Oct 21, 2011 now.  Are you serious?  Will people actually believe this insane bull shit that keeps seeping from his crazy old mouth?  All i have to say is that anyone who is stupid enough to blow there entire bankroll on this lunatics Familyradio.com advertisements deserves to be poor and miserable when they finally realize that its just another scam. 

     If you believe Camping then i have some advice for you.  Donate that money to something useful like Breast Cancer, Underprivileged Children, ASPCA, or any number of other great charities that can use the money to help people that deserve it.  Lets be honest people if this Rapture does come all the billboards in the world won't help those of us that know how insane it all is.
