One of the most liberating moments in my life was the day I was saved from Christianity. To have the freedom to formulate for myself what a man should stand for and not what a man written book lays down what men should or shouldn’t be.
Since Thursday the floodgates opened up on Facebook of men mailing me who had to endure the wrath of Christianity. Out of respect for the people I won’t share some of the heart wrenching stories I have read, but suffice to say if you had read them, you would be shedding a tear or two. It is heart breaking to read how many lives Christianity has destroyed.
My thoughts were taken back to a church camp some 13 years ago in Grade 10. We were camping at the Vaal River and were all sitting around the camp fire that night when the Reverend (I hope he is reading this) told us group of boys that masturbation was an evil deed and will turn us into homosexuals and in some cases we could end up as transvestites.
Riddled with guilt I knew I was turning myself into a homosexual. Having had lost my father, there was nobody that could discuss the facts of life with me in a proper way that every father should with his teenage son, so I would only years later during clinical studies learn that it was the most natural activity for boys to engage in.
Surely this brainwashing is evil and constitutes a form of child abuse? Isn’t it then fair to conclude that Christianity is a destructive way to raise children?
Christianity is a cunning religion. The more guilt they dish out, the more morons they will attract handing over money.
To illustrate my point, I’m going to share a message sent to me over the weekend by a Christian. I will leave it up to you the reader to guess who sent this to me. It shouldn’t be too difficult if you have been following the homosexual debate on News24. He said:
“I don't hate gays Andrew, I hate the way you parade your homosexual lifestyles and shove your beliefs down our throats. Maybe you should just come clean and voice your hatred for people who believe in God and His laws. Homosexuality is a sin that will condemn you to Hell. I didn't write the Bible, if you have a problem, take it up with God, you'll be meeting Him soon enough, so best you forget about all these pesky little interactions with Christians that you hate so much, and ready yourself... This little conversation, when that day comes, won't count for anything. It's your life before your Creator. Be ready”
I passed this message on to a psychiatrist friend of mine without giving him any background and asked him to analyse this comment and give me his diagnosis. He came back with this:
“Closeted homosexual using religion to hide his inability to come to terms with his sexuality”
I’m sure when next you read one of his gay bashing articles; the picture would start falling in place for you.
Of all the fairy gods the Christians have created, we will all concur that the Devil is by far the most interesting creation of their imaginations. He must of have been created by some sexually deprived wreck, because anything sexual is from the Devil, yet it would seem that their Devil seems to be ruling all of them and their god had long given up and departed from their dirty sinning party.
I don’t think any other religion is falling apart this rapidly. Over the last 10 years I have witnessed so many people develop the mental maturity to start living their lives according to their own rules and not that of a book written millennia ago.
Atheism is a spiritual freedom and Christianity is a self imposed prison and hell you choose for yourself. The cruelty is the fact that kids are mentally abused by these deluded fanatics that use religion to conceal their flaws.
