This Trans Woman Just Made A Bold Move In The Face Of Religious Hypocrisy.

Leviticus 20:13 states ’If a man lies with mankind as he also lie with a woman, he shall be put to death’. That’s the cheery Bible song so often quoted by religious literalists when challenging homosexuality. But Pamela Raintree, a transgender citizen of the city of Shreveport, Louisiana, has used the verse to her advantage - and to the benefit of her fellow LGBT neighbours. 

Shreveport City Council were preparing to vote whether or not to end workplace discrimination based on sexual preference and gender identity, after Councillor Ron Webb attempted to repeal a ban agreed in December. He apparently didn’t think that the people of Shreveport had a fair enough say and opted to dig his heels in, obviously trying to put off the inevitable. The council had heard support from various speakers, but it was Raintree whose particularly bold gesture urged Webb to drop his appeal immediately. After quoting the above Biblical passage, she held out a rock and told him: “I brought the first stone, Mr. Webb, in case your bible talk isn’t just a smokescreen for personal prejudices.”

And that’s how you call out a hypocrite. And a coward.

LGBT people in Shreveport will now have full protection under the law against discrimination in the workplace and in access to housing.

If Satan knows God firsthand and still defies him, what more can mortal men of mere faith be expected to do, than likewise disrespect God?

The explanations that are given to support the existence of God are cryptic and ambiguous. It is in our nature to seek clarification and understanding, so it is hardly surprising that many people fail to be convinced by the ‘evidence’ for God - many things just don’t add up.

Two Popes sell Catholicism.

Everybody thinks one Pope is a hateful crazy.

Everybody thinks the other Pope is a swell guy.

The Catholicism stays the same.

Thousands of Fake Messiahs Reported to be Incarcerated in Iran            

This article from the Economist gives insight to the possibility that there was a “Historical Jesus”. Not an actual Messiah per say, but with the apparent desire encapsulated in the minds of humans still today… it would not surprise me in the least that the metaphorical road to Christianity was literally littered with self-proclaimed Messiahs to draw tales from.
