    They may be excused, as they too were probably brainwashed during childhood, but I can't help blaming ALL parents who push religious dogmas onto their kids and say they'll go to hell if they "sin". It's child abuse.

    @MrViobattie Also, what does "It was OUTSIDE of it by people who told me lies that having sex with a man would make me happy" even mean? So what exactly did you do to make yourself happy, in the end?
  • Monkey Wrench 2011-12-29 19:27:12
    @MrViobattie So, based on your lone experience & ignoring all the evidence you get from everyhere when it comes to religion and sexuality, you're telling me that it's better to go to a religious figure (any, or just a Roman Catholic one?) to reason through your sexuality than rely to "outside"? Bizarre, but it clearly worked for you on this particular instance. Alas, the alleged "freedom" you claim to have gained thanks to one religious institution is persecution to millions. Who's ignorant now.

    I just watch this movie and it made me cry like a baby :( so upsetting. Love it thro :)
  • Monkey Wrench 2011-11-14 20:43:38
    @magnusXbane I'm glad u're not protecting fanatics, that u feel the sudden urge 2 make that point. Just in case and let's cover all corners of your supposed argument, right? It's a foregone conclusion u'll find good people in religious organisations, discovering warm water springs 2 mind. It's the often outdated and exploitable nature of religions that concerns me: did I say all religious people were the cancer of humanity or was I pointing to religions and their often corrupt values?
