At the same time, in the southern states I know, the guys were pretty much abusing the situation and using the double-standard in order to go out and cheat on their wives, in the masses. Your way wasn't working and that is why the sexual revolution happened. The old ways were being abused; people weren't happy and they wanted out of their situations. They wanted to freaking say who they were without hiding it. They wanted to come out of the dark and create an awareness of people and their situations. Self-awareness is the way to understanding and health. Without it, I wouldn't and couldn't be happy with myself or others. It's been proven. I need to openly express myself without being judged by the masses. Judged by a few? Sure, but in a mostly christian society, I am stifled and judged all-too-much, and what I want must be done in an environment devoid of christians, which makes for a place where I can be taken advantage of. When my actions are accepted, I can express myself around people who love me for who I am and I don't have to hide it. When there are healthier outlets (the same actions in a different environment), I no longer need to worry about becoming unhealthy, simply for being me. It works.
Christianity can't possibly work for some personalities. It just wasn't meant to be. And those personalities need other choices. Basically, you are going backward and not forward. It didn't work for everyone, and that's why people created other choices. If you want to believe it yourself, fine, but don't try to impose your ways on everyone, so half of us can live miserable fucking lives, devoid of growth and love. Life is getting better for most people and not worse..... and there's your proof. As we become more aware, more educated, more free, and more technologically-advanced, quality of life improves, which leads to more love and happiness. Open your eyes.
Christianity = create shame, so you will have to ask a fake god for forgiveness for things "he" has told you not to do, but you are going to do anyway. then you can go pay a preacher at a church to keep telling you what you shouldn't be doing.
There's a much easier way. You decide yourself what is right and wrong, and then go by that. So when you make a mistake, you don't have to feel guilt or ask for forgiveness, but just improve so you don't make that mistake again.
I thought I was paranoid, you have me beat by a mile.
I hate to say it, because I posted previously on not calling christians "nuts", but this ain't no regular christian lol................... yep, beefeater, i believe you're not right.......lmao. I'm not even gonna come out in the open with my real thoughts on this matter, but I will say, it's not a good assessment lmfao.
