"Doesn't it feel glorious. I came out when I was 18 or so (I'm 33 now) so it was long ago, but I still remember it well. What still saddens me is the way that the rational people are always the one to be deffending our lack of belief. That…"
"If God were the perfect guide towards ideal morality, then rational people wouldn't have any trouble with the Bible. Perfectly moral people only need to take a look at the Bible to realize they disagree with half of the passages there."
