On religion...

Chapter 1

............

Before I start this, I don't personally believe in God. I believe in science. Yeah, yeah, bring on the hate, yell at me that I'm an idiot and I'm going to hell, blah blah blah, the fact of the matter is, that isn't going to motherfucking make me change my mind because I don't believe that hell actually exists. So shut the fuck up and listen to some logic.

I'd also like to say that I'm not trying to convert you to atheism or atheistic Satanism, which is what I would define myself as. Believe whatever you want, it doesn't really affect me.

Okay. Where to start.

First of all: Calling someone stupid because of their beliefs and telling them that they're "going to Hell" because they don't believe what you believe in, is as motherfucking un-Christian as you can get. The entire point of the religion is forgiveness. I used to be Christian, so I know that that's the point of it. And you're going to hold a grudge against someone, and tell them that they're going to the absolute worst place that you personally can think of, because they don't believe what you believe? Hm, seems logical. (Note the subtle hint of sarcasm.)
Although I don't necessarily believe in Hell, if you tell me that I am going to Hell, that is the equivalent of you telling me that I am evil and that I "can not be saved." In other words, you have just confirmed for me my worst suspicions that I am a bad person, and that nothing I can do will change that apart from changing who I am as a person. And I refuse to do that for anyone.

Second of all: Nothing will ever give you permission to tell someone that their religion is "invalid" or that they'll go to Hell for not believing in the "real" God. If you're a Muslim; fine. If you're a Buddist; fine. If you're a Christian; fine. If you're a pagan; fine. If you're a Satanist; fine.
If you are an ignorant person who thinks it's okay to try to convert people's religion; don't even talk to me.
I am so sick of being told that I should "become a Christian to avoid going to Hell!!!!11!1!1!"
No
Stop
What are you doing

There is absolutely nothing on this earth (or on any other) that will ever give you permission to tell someone that what they believe is wrong or immoral.

I am a Satanist.
No, I don't want you to become a Satanist.
No, I don't want you to stop believing what you believe and believe what I believe.
No, I don't want you to pretend to agree with everything I'm saying if you don't actually agree with me.
The only thing that I want from you, is for you to respect my decision, and move on with your life.

It is because of people like that that I still have no managed to tell any member of my family that I do not believe in God. Honestly, I'm terrified that they'll be completely and utterly horrified, and will try to "convert" me back again. Because of those people, I don't know how to tell my family what I believe in.
There's something wrong there.

Discrimination is widespread, and there will always be cases of it. But if you're so strongly religious/non-religious that you feel the need to freaking attack people with different opinions to you; you need to fix that. Because that's not right.
