Chris Crocker “makes his bed” out of the Bible
You’ll get no debate out of me when it come to free speech, First Amendment rights, and all that jazz, but there really ought to be a law prohibiting “B” stars, wannabes, or anybody for that matter, in using religion as a prop to advance a fizzling acting career. It’s just…tired! Chris is a bright guy, and I expect more from entertainers than another reverse hate speech on Christianity and sexual orientation. Chris’s latest diatribe follows:
FOR EVERYONE UPSET ABOUT THE BIBLE PICTURE:
Before I get started, let me just say that any Christian who threatens to kill me or tells me to die or wants to beat me up is not only a hypocrite, but is also disobeying the bible.
Any Christian who wants to kill me for ripping up the Bible is full of shit. If someone were to break a Britney CD, I wouldn’t get mad because I understand that people have rights. Same thing.
For everyone surprised by the fact that I have a picture of me with a ripped Bible – don’t be. Do NOT be surprised that I am not Christian. Why are you surprised that I don’t support a book that doesn’t support my lifestyle? I don’t hate God, I hate the man who wrote hate into the bible. Any book that says I am going to a fiery place in my afterlife for sleeping with a man is NOT a book I support.
I will admit that I am biased based on my personal encounters with Christians, but for the most part, I have only known them to be good for one thing and that’s threats. They think they can threaten you because they think they’re powerful. They think that everyone should be Christian and if you’re not, you’re nothing. I’ve known ATHIESTS who were more humanitarian-like than most Christians.
Being religious does NOT make you a good person! Being CHRISTIAN does NOT make you a good person! Being honest and wanting peace makes you a good person..
The saying is ‘Live and let live..’ and a lot of Christians don’t know how to do that. They think it’s their duty to apoint you and change you and it just isn’t.
Think about it.
If there is a God he (a: isn’t going to expect me to know he exists because I am human and the bible was written by human- (b: he/she/it isn’t going to send me to this “fiery” place called hell just for sleeping with a man.
If he is a God worth my worship, he isn’t going to care who or what I fuck.
If he is a God worth my worship, he would have came down from his cloud a long time ago.
I know a lot of Christians say ‘Oh, I’m not like that! Those are the hypocritical Christians!’ — in my mind all Christians are hypocritical. Most Christians can believe in a man who rose from the dead, but they can’t believe in an Alien sighting..
OK, for all you people who are all like “i’m a christian and i don’t support hate….” or “not all christians are bad, i’m open-minded, i support blah-blah-blah” I have one thing to say to you: SAVE IT.
Yeah, while you were out being a good, non-gay hating, “open-minded” Christian, 3 of your youth-pasters are probably out posting hate-mail to me on myspace and hasseling 13-yr old gays on their way to school.
While you were being “tolerant”, a kid one state away was being beaten to death, or shot for being gay..
If you support us, ask yourself this: how many people know it? Does your family know it? Does your boyfriend/girlfriend/ wife? Are you scared to show your support for gays, and if you are why? Are you witnessing the voilence and hate around you?
The truth is, even CHRISTIANS are afraid of Christians! I know Christians who support gays and they’re afraid to show it because they’re afraid of what the Christian community might do to them.
it’s like a gang or a cult.. and is that really something you want to be a part of?
The people doing the preaching are the scary ones.. the ones doing the preaching are the ones you need to be scared of, not gays.
In my experience, Christians are some of the most hateful and conniving people I have ever come across. My grandparents were kicked out of a church they went to for 25 years, just because the church found out that I was gay. They claimed that by ME being gay that my grandparents were in support of a corrupt lifestyle.
First of all, I am 20 fucking years old. Secondly, what I do and what my grandparents do are totally different things. You would think that they would want to support my grandparents even more, if they believed what I do with my life is so sinful, but instead they shunned them away.
If that isn’t betrayal, I don’t know what is. Years and years of going to church with the same people and then kicked out for what your grandson does.
Also, for those hundreds of you who say I am being hypocrticial for posting the picture; saying that I am spreading hate- I am simply sticking up for myself. This is my response to everyone who has ever told me I am going to hell because of that book. I HATE the fact that millions of gay people are being told they are going to hell because of that book. I am PISSED that millions of gay peoples lives are ALREADY HELL because of that book.
The picture is for every Christian who has ever threatened to kill me- The picture is for every gay person who has ever been told they are going to hell.
THAT’S what the picture is for.
You Christians have more hate in your heart than you know what to do with. You can’t handle a liberal like me expressing my rights. It doesn’t piss you of that I am ripping up a bible about some God you believe in- It pisses you off that I know my rights.. It pisses you off that I don’t feel oppressed by you.
AND I’M GLAD IT PISSES YOU OFF.
Eventually everyone is going to wake up and see this world as it really is..
The world would be a much more peaceful place without religion. The goal of religion isn’t to spread peace or positivity- it’s to spread elitism and hate. I can almost guarantee the death-threats I will get are 99.9% going to be/have been from Christians who think killing gay people is the only way… well, forgive me if I’m wrong, but doesn’t it say in the Bible that taking someones life is a no-no?
Thank you for your time, Dear sweet Christians of this world.. I hope that you will all start practice what you preach, instead of threatening to kill people.
Sincerely not sorry,
“EVERYBODY IS UP TO SOMETHING, heY!”
Happy New Year!
