I am going there people!
I mainly was inspired to write this, because I was retweet an atheist friend who wanted to know why do other atheists thinks Christianity is such a popular religion. It got me thinking.
See, I am not an atheist and I am not religious, I’m agnostic. So generally I don’t believe there’s a “God” persay, but I do believe in spirits and ghosts, and guardians. Not all Guardians are human too, just so you know,hehe.
It did make me think why is Christianity so popular? Too me it’s not really a hard question to answer. I know one religious family that have sent myself and my gay family members bibles with bible quotes. We normally take pity on them. A few years ago, the father of that family had a complete break down thinking his mother, my mum and myself were going to “Hell” because we do Tarot and Reiki, etc.
So, in a way, we pity them.
I would still though the other 97% of Christians I know, are good people too. In my mind, Religion, like everything else in this world is extremely powerful, when in the right hands, for good. It is also powerfully destructive, when in the wrong hands of extremists.
For me as well, not for a single second would I call a right wing republican a “Christian”. There’s nothing there for me anyway, to say that they are Christian. I was saying yesterday to people who kept saying that Kate Forbes is left wing and she’s progressive, she they must be too. That’s not how it works. Kate Forbes was in the running for FM in Scotland, she didn’t win, thank goodness. Well done to Scotland again, for Humza Yousaf, by the way. Just because Forbes was in a progressive party, doesn’t make her progressive or left wing. Her views were literally being celebrated by likes of Nigel Farage.
Nigel Farage is pretty much the God of Brexit, it was all his doing. Yes, Brexit, the biggest disaster to hit the UK in a long time. I include COVID in this.
Claiming to be something, doesn’t make you that. It’s like these people have never heard of “Your actions speak louder than words” before. Calling yourself, left, right and center, doesn’t make you left, right or center, your actions and what you support does.
