Have you ever heard someone say "The good book says we are all God's children", or "God loves everyone"? I have, and I'm sure the majority of you readers have heard that statement in some way, shape, or form. You know what the problem with that is? It's that, well, the bible doesn't say that. NOT AT ALL. It actually teaches that God hates many types of people. And wants them dead. I know that sounds harsh, but it's true. 

Before I go on, I want to emphasize a point: When I talk about God, I am specifically referring to "Yahweh", the Hebrew God of the bible. It could very well be that you believe in a completely different type of God. I'm not talking about that God.

With that being said, let me be clear about something: The bible teaches that God absolutely does not love everyone. And one thing the bible is very clear about, is it's anti-gay, homophobic message. The bible has made life very hard for those in the LGBTQ community. It has shamed them, put them down, made them outcasts, uncomfortable in their own skin, turned people against them. People use the bible to justify denying basic human rights to lesbians, gays, bisexual, transgender, and to those who are questioning. 

It sickens me to quote these bible verses, but people need to be made aware of these perverse bible texts. Historically, these and other bible verses have been used to discriminate people of the LGBTQ community. Leviticus chapter 20 verse 13 says, "If a man has sexual relations with a man...they are to be put to death." And Romans chapter 1 verse 26 states, "...Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other."

 Think about that. The death penalty is usually reserved for the most heinous of crimes. And here we have the bible mandating the death penalty for those who express their different sexual orientation. Can you believe that in some countries, this hideous bible mandate is still followed? Can anyone, in good conscience, believe and live by these deplorable and intolerant bible teachings? 

The LGBTQ community has countered this message of hate with another one: "love is love". And what does it mean to love someone? It means to care deeply for a person. To enjoy their company. To wish them happiness. To cherish and support them. To want what's best for them. Therefore, loving someone will always be a good thing, no matter the sexual orientation or gender identity of the person. It will always make this world better. It is the hateful message of the bible that brings society down. So, let's all be pro-love. And support the LGBTQ community's natural right to love and express their love. 

And the only acceptable form of intolerance here is having ZERO tolerance for the bible and it's hateful messages.

  ABORTION. Few words evoke more intense feelings and colliding viewpoints than this word. A presidential candidate's stance on that single matter is enough to sway voters one way or another in an election year and decide the next administration...that is how deep-seated people's views on abortion are. The line in the sand has been drawn and the trenches have been dug, a civil war of ideological views is being fought at this very moment and on many different fronts. This topic is relevant now more than ever. Seems like our courts are always one step closer to being pro-choice or one judge closer to banning abortion clinics. Many women just stand back and hold their breath...wondering when the chips will fall and a new law or a removal of an existing one will hijack their reproductive systems and strip them of control over their own bodies.  Others, filled with "holy" zeal for "God's word", become giddy with anticipation at any glimmer of hope that a cons


Over the past few years, concern and awareness regarding animal cruelty has been increasing. We now, more than ever, understand that animals are intelligent and emotional beings, with rich social lives. They are capable of feeling love, care, empathy, joy, pain, fear, distress, and terror, similar to you and me. That is why there has been a growing movement to end animal cruelty.  Animal cruelty has taken on many forms. Whether it be for sport, consumption, or religious ritualistic ceremonies, the theme is the same: complete disregard for the pain and suffering these innocent creatures endure. Any book that purports itself to be a moral guide for humanity should, by all means, condemn the practice of animal cruelty. Instead, in the bible, we find that animal cruelty is glorified. The first instance of animal cruelty that we see in the bible is found in Genesis chapter 4, verse 4. The New International Version reads: "And Abel also brought an offering, fat portions from some of the


Throughout the bible one can find many passages that are immoral, some more than others. But one of them really takes the cake. And if there was one bible story that could single-handedly dismantle the notion that the bible is a holy book, it would be this one. Even though some Christian apologists have tried to rationalize it, it really is just a desperate attempt to hide what truly is a despicable bible passage.  Before I reveal to you what the worst verse in the bible is, I'm going to give you a little bit of background information on it. Genesis chapter 19 describes how a man named Lot saw two men in the city square. Assuming they were travelers, he told the men to stay at his house, since nightfall was approaching. After some hesitation and a little back and forth, they agreed. Some time later, after the men had dinner and were preparing to go to bed, a mob shows up at Lot's doorstop. They called out to Lot, demanding him to bring out the two men so that they could rape th
