“any religion which promotes death unto others is no religion to me”—
sometimes it’s no wonder so many people hate religion. there are extremists and literalists and just silly people who seem to contradict exactly what they preach. i don’t understand it. i know that that’s not my God. my God doesn’t wish that we pray for each others’ deaths. my God doesn’t hate on someone because of who they love. my God doesn’t exploit and prejudge and discriminate against. He’s not all rainbows and unicorns, but He’s got a compassionate heart that we should all strive to reflect. my God is a just god, & while i will leave the justice of this world up to Him, i pray we all learn to love more like He loves us.
