Atheist State Lawmaker Quotes Carl Sagan Instead of Doing Prayer Before House Session →

mamaatheist:

An atheist state lawmaker tasked with delivering the opening prayer for this afternoon’s session of the House of Representatives asked that people not bow their heads.

Democratic Representative Juan Mendez, of Tempe, instead spoke about his “secular humanist tradition” and even quoted author Carl Sagan.

“Most prayers in this room begin with a request to bow your heads,” Mendez said. “I would like to ask that you not bow your heads. I would like to ask that you take a moment to look around the room at all of the men and women here, in this moment, sharing together this extraordinary experience of being alive and of dedicating ourselves to working toward improving the lives of the people in our state.”

Okay you know what? No. No. No. No. No. No.
People here on tumblr like to pretend they’re all ~*open minded*~ and no one’s racist or sexist or whatever but this is a fucking shitty thing to say.
Not all Christians are against homosexuality.

It’s fucking disrespectful to use the Bible as a plate when that is sacred to some people. I don’t fucking give a rat’s ass if you’re not religious, you need to start fucking realising that religion isn’t inherently bad.
There are lots of Christians who are pro-LGBTQ or are LGBTQ themselves and you need to respect them as well and not lump an entire religion into the Westboro Baptist Church.

God I could have written all that better but I’m just so fucking pissed off right now I can’t even argue this.




THANK YOU SO MUCH

ALSO YOUR PIZZA IS GOING TO TASTE LIKE FAKE LEATHER WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT

Harp asks the important questions.

BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PARTS OF TUMBLR HATE CHRISTIANITY
BUT WE CAN ALL AGREE THE REAL HERESY HERE IS ABUSE TO PIZZA

Also, wouldn’t the cheap foil stamping cause the microwave to arc?

Just want to add that “that book” isn’t stopping you from getting married. America is not a Christian nation. It’s a religiously diverse nation. The Christian bible has no affect on marriage in America. The only thing to blame for marriage inequality in America is Americans.
