harm that the lie of religion causes is condoning a belief and trust in
the illogical.* Telling children that fantasies are real, eternal
damnation awaits them, history doesn't have to make any sense, and
science is not to be trusted, sets that child up to be completely
unprepared to deal with real life issues. They are doomed to repeat
mistakes of the past. They are told that God is the answer to all
things and that Jesus Christ will guide them always, but He will not.
He isn't there."
Hi Bob, :)
Its Megan, your
shemale friend! Still alive, still wanting to move to NY or
LA. :) But I am going by Raven these days.
I was reading
this, and you really hit the nail on the head. I was brought up
believing in the Tooth Fairy, Santa Claus, and Jesus Fucking
Christ. I should have figured it out when my parents told me
there was no Santa Claus.
But what do these
lies teach kids? I'll tell you what it taught me! It taught
me that no matter what I do, everything will somehow turn out OK.
That if I just put my faith in Jesus Christ, somehow everything will be
I have learned the
real hard way that isn't true. I have learned that if you don't
have real life skills, real life knowledge, and the ability to apply
them, you will get fucked...real bad, real hard, by real life. The
Bible doesn't teach you how to do your taxes, balance your checkbook,
pay your bills, or earn money. It doesn't give you a skill, like
photography, athletics, painting, writing, etc...it doesn't do
anything. I'm not normally for book banning, but if every copy of
the Bible were incinerated, I'd be OK with it.
teaching me a set of useless lies, why not have taught me valuable real
life skills that I could apply to...oh, I don't know...managing my life
in an effective and productive manner, rather than turning me loose
with a "Jesus fixes everything! Everything will be OK no matter
what!" attitude. Isn't it better to instill in children a more
productive value set?
Having a positive
attitude is good, but not knowing what the hell you're doing because
your head is full of nonsense and crap is a real bad thing. I
would like to have been taught something useful growing up. Now I am
figuring it all out the hard way, and it sucks.
In the end, I
renounced Christ. It made me happy to do so. It was the
start of a long, still continuing, painful journey to just being
myself, and being a functional human being for once.
Anyway, I liked
the point you made, so I wanted to say something.
listening, love your site as always, Raven, an aspiring shemale porn star.
wish you knew true love”
Subject: this isn't hate mail.
this is i wish you knew true love
i am praying for you.
What makes you think I don't know true love? I
have parents that love me, whom I love in return very very much. I have
a select group of friends that I love, who love me for who I am. I have
fallen in love with someone else. I have a very loving family. They
love me and I love them more than I can measure! How ugly your email
is, suggesting that one can't know true love without your god? In fact,
I think this shows exactly where your family and friends fall on your
list of "love," and that's what makes your beliefs so ugly.
have apologized for being a bigot”
I am sorry. I didn't mean to sound
like a bigot. To me, He is love. If it is not what you believe, why
bother creating a site that desecrates his image?
Of course love is different things to different
people. I do not doubt that you love your family and friends, but why
would you attack the source of other people's love? Also, I have
apologized for being a bigot and suggesting that you can't know love
without my God. Similarly, I think that you made assumptions that
questioned the extent to which I loved my family and friends. I had no
right to judge you. Likewise, you have no right to judge me.
I want to understand. Why did you create this site?
Are you kidding me?!? You email me telling me I
can't know true love without your silly god, and then you say that I
have no right to show you how your own words speak volumes about the
love you have for others? I have EVERY right to point something like
that out after such an accusation is made! I also have the right to
judge you, because I quite honestly feel that your initial email to me
said exactly what you meant it to say, and that that's precisely where
your family and friends fall in line with your god. I attack this
source of love for all of these very reasons!
Why did I create the site? So that I could point
out exactly what is wrong and unhealthy about loving a storybook
character to every chowderhead who emails me saying that it's the only
way to know true love. I made the site as a platform to tell people
that imaginary love has less worth than real-life-PEOPLE-love!
And the reason you found yourself apologizing for
being a bigot is because that's exactly where your feelings are, and
you've no problem telling someone you don't know that they don't love
like you know love. Those are honest, uncensored thoughts that you
shared with me before you knew someone would call you on 'em. You are
bigoted, and you're also sorry that you are bigoted. If you can't
figure out why I do what I do, read back over all of our letters again.
It's all there in black and white.
|“How could you have a site that makes fun of Jesus? ...there is a season, A time
for every purpose under heaven”
Subject: the Jesus dress up
I just want you to know that I find this very
offensive. How could you have a site that makes fun of Jesus?
Especially after all he has went thur for you. I do not believe that
you realize the how serious this is. Please find some other way of
having a dress up with out involving Jesus. If you call this humor than
you need another look at the word humor because this is very offensive.
To everything there is a season, A time for
every purpose under heaven
What I don't understand is how one second you
condemn what I'm doing and call it offensive, and then the last
sentence you tell me that there is a time for every purpose, which
would include mine (using the word "every")!
So when is my time for making fun of Jesus?
You write confusing emails.
|“Even if there was a time to do such a thing why would
you be the one that wants to do it? Do you realize the seriousness of
I am sorry that you misunderstood me. I do not
agree with you about what you are doing, and I am very offended, not
only for myself but my children to. My children and I were on the
Internet looking for dress up dolls. This is how I stumbled on to your
site. By the way at the end of each email is a scripture from the bible
which is found in Elessciates 3:1-2. This had nothing to do with what I
was saying to you. Why would you want to make fun of Jesus? I do not
Even if there was a time to do such a thing why would you be the one
that wants to do it? Do you realize the seriousness of this? This same
man that you are making fun of is the same man that shed his blood
which was innocent blood by the way for your sins. This is something he
did not have to do but yet he did it so people like you and me would
have a chance of eternal life with God. I am not trying to start a
agreement or anything I just want you to think about what you are doing.
PS: thanks for not being rude.
To everything there is a season, A time for
every purpose under heaven
Oh! Now I understand! I thought you were telling
me to stop but also telling me there's another time for me to do this.
I get it now.
Okay, so to your question, Why would I want to
make the fun with Jesus, considering the seriousness of the
consequences? The reason is very simple, and in my opinion, very
obvious. I do not believe that that human being on the cross is
all of our God. I don't believe for a second that He is the Master Of
The Universe and that I must bow to Him or suffer forever in hell. To
me that sounds no more foolish than say, believing that David Koresh is
God and that he is in heaven. Ya know? It all seems so clearly to be BS
to me, what with the talking snakes in magic gardens, animal arks with
the flood the earth, and the Jesus who flies up to heaven and walks on
water with no Jetski or nothin'. I don't understand the reason why
people buy into it so easily without question, especially when everything
we know through science and common sense tells us that it's all pretend.
I suppose that that's why I want you and your
children to see Jesus Dress Up. I want people to see that He's
make-believe, because people need to stop believing in fairy tales and
believe more in things that actually occur. You know? Oh! That reminds
me! Did you read how a Judge in Harrisburg, PA ruled against
"intelligent design" being taught in school along side evolution? msnbc.msn.com That news is so great to me! I
really want kids to be taught things that are true and make sense. You
see, I believe that it's better for them in the end.
So yeah. I hope that makes sense. Sometimes I
ramble on, but you know, this needs to be addressed. So yeah.

That Emily Anna rocks like fuck. You see, I don't
believe that you do rock like fuck. In fact, from this end, it looks as
if you rock about as much as a broken toe.
