Why I’m An Atheist

Posted by mikenopolis on October 29, 2008

I just read this news article in regards to the upcoming election and Proposition 8 (Banning of Gay Marriages)

–“I’m here to voice my opinion and not sit at home and do nothing about it,” said senior Albert Liao, 17, a Protestant Christian from Mission Viejo. “The Bible states that marriage is between a man and a woman.”–

Whenever I hear people justify their actions and decisions because of the Bible, it pisses me off. It’s great that you believe in something/someone, after all it is the backbone to our laws. But it is wrong to enforce those religion based decisions onto others. There are wars over the holy land, we have child molestation charges against Priests. We have people killing people “in the name of the lord”. I think the religion thing still has a lot of room for improvement.

We all have to understand that times have changed since the books of the Bible was written. I’m neither for not against Prop. 8. But I do think allowing gays and lesbians to be married would be a great way to stimulate the economy. Think about all money they would spend on their wedding! or how much they would spend on the divorce!
