the virgin mary

ive spent a little time thinking about the virgin mary. in many abrahamic religions she is the mother of jesus. her claim to fame is that an angel came to her to inform her that she was pregnant with the son of god and his name was to be jesus.

i also have a lot of friends who beleive in this theory and also beleive that their god is perfect and has never sinned. i have to admit it is an interesting theory but makes little since. though i consider most (and i use this lightly) of my friends to be rational people i find it hard to beleive that a virgin could get pregnant in the first place. after all, scientists have proved that virginity and pregnancy dont happen.

even if you choose to ignore this theory and beleive that the virgin did get pregnant that would mean that god was also a sinner like the people he was creating, that he couldnt possibly promise heaven when he was no better than anyone. not to mention he puts basic human nature as a sin, not allowing them to freely express sexuality and many other aspects of human life. call me a satanist sympaphiser when i say this but when there are certain things like lust that every human expierences shouldnt we be able to openly express this, even with a monogamous religion in our lives?

earlier, while doing a bit of reading in the levay satanic bible it was even speaking of this. due to the restrictions of the monogamous religions many people restrict their sexuality to adhere to these rules and sometimes even deny their true sexuality just to obey a god that hasnt changed with the times and is out of date with his followers. he has lost touch with what modern day people have come to beleive. he hasnt sent an apostile that all religions beleiving in the virgin and his son have acknowledged where they even were in time compared to what is word was predicting. there are no messages being relayed any longer. how can any of them be sure where they are and that their armefeddon hasnt already come?

like any oter day that a teacher has become absentee for one reason or anouther many of the students in my sixth period biology class finished their work a lot earlier than expected and started socializeing with other students within the class. my small group of three talking to mostly each other as always. also, like normal, while the group had decided to split itself up a friend of mine brought up my pagan beleifs and asked if there was any specific gods that i choose to follow. one christian student in the room (who happened to be within earshot of said conversation) turned around and almost automatically started questioning my faith.

I got the usual set of “christianity is the one true religion and its god the one true and only god” speil that many christians have in their minds from the day that they begin the faith, both from the bible they choose to read and the pastor they choose to listen to. my rebuttle was “god hates gay people and i’m bi, why would i want to believe in a god that hated me?” as usual for all christians, he could give me no answer to this question that would make me beleive that the above statement to be false and come to his religion as he (and many others with a shared faith) had tried to do.

in all off the time i have spent asking this question i am yet to find a single christian that was able to give me the answer i seeked. one pastor had even tried “god loves all his people” but was, again, stumped when i asked “then why does the bible that he dislikes gays?”

as time passes it seems even more unlikely that i will ever find an answer in christianity since anything they would try to say would contridict something said in the bible and, having my sexuality always getting in the way of any possible monothiestic beiefs for me, would never be able to convince me to hold my faith in the “one true religion” and the god they wish to call “their one true god”.

interesting apology

the first thomas jefferson meeting in weeks was set up for today during lunch. few actually came that where on the group list but the rest will at the very least be caught up on the events of the meeting.

we were originally told we were meeting up to discuss what we wanted to plan for the events for the last half of the year but it turned out very different. one of the teachers (who was christian) had been planning on speaking to the group as a whole for awhile. he went through lines in the bible and explained how incorrect christians were in beleiveing that they should judge people for being gay, their beleif in (or lack of beleif in) a certain god. that he understood that most christians misunderstood wording in the bible and often hated gays and that the christian churchs promoted this whole idea and that most people were ignorant to what the lines really meant.

everyone present listened carefully to what he had to say and clapped when he was finished. though he cant speak for all christians (which he admitted) it is generally true that many churches ignore this whole idea and most preachers wont even go over it. during all of the years i served as a christian and all of the times i spent in a christian church no one would touch these lines. all of the people who claimed to teach for god would completely skip these sections or would make it seem like it applied only to those who werent in the glbt community. it gives  me a sickening feeling that those who claim to read “the word of god” would misinterpret it this way and shove it down the throats of an entire church rather than showing what he was truely ment to be with these lines of the bible. we can only hope some of this adversity becomes lighter with the years and more people realize the true meaning of these lines over what some homophobic church leaders choose to believe.
