Since The Rapture Didn't Happen...
... seeing as the clues culled from the Bible amounted to a hill of horse manure ...
can we please now ...
STOP ACTING LIKE THE BIBLE IS A PRIMER WHOSE EVERY WORD SHOULD BE LITERALLY APPLIED TO LIFE ON EARTH!
STOP ACTING LIKE IT'S FILLED WITH STRAIGHTFORWARD FACTS THAT CAN BE QUOTED FROM AT WILL IN ORDER TO BEAT PEOPLE DOWN!!!
I.e., cease picking out random passages that supposedly prove that homosexuality is an abomination that needs to be pitied and cured.
Using religion to oppress consenting adults -- that's an abomination!
If you somehow find solace in the bible, then fine -- I'm happy for you.
But please don't act like every word in it needs to be heeded as if it were a memo from above.
I'm not a sinner any more than the apocalypse came on Saturday.
Keep it up and you'll surely go to hell in ... um, according to my own good book, sometime in March 2024.
