More than anything, it's the staggering hypocrisy that religion uses as a means of trying to make people into things they aren't, never will be, and never could be - unless they lie, which is perfectly fine. It's as if robbing someone of their identity or the parts that make them a whole person is not only acceptable, but preferential.

That and the complete lack of respect in deciding that certain things (sexuality, for instance here) can be changed if the person wanted to or loved god badly enough - it's ludicrous. It bothers me how many people are so desperate to believe that they'll make these compromises of self and lower their standards so quickly just to fit in, and the grease keeping these machines working is 100% guilt and shame. Religion disgusts me.

I'll add that one to my book list for sure - I'm about 7 books behind at the moment!

I love you too, Nina - always will.

Succinct. I want to watch it, then I get really angry at stuff like that.

I just read a great quote that fits in:
"Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth." -John F. Kennedy
