Humans can be so beautiful.

One bad apple can cause hate for an entire orchard, but we need to get past that.

Let go.

I will be the first to admit that after leaving religion I became bitter with the world. I couldn't understand why people would put religious practices before anything else. I couldn't grasp the idea that they were being taught to judge others, yet to be like Jesus. And they were 
okay with it.

I was so upset with humankind. I wanted everyone to skip church for a day and go learn something from someone who was completely different than themselves. I felt like a little kid who just wanted everyone to get along and be friends. But the thing is.. 

There comes a time when you have to throw those bitter feelings away.
There comes a time when you have to accept others before you can be accepted.
There comes a time when you need to focus on the good things about humankind and move on.

I am thankful for the wonderful people I've met throughout my life, religious and nonreligious, and the ones I will meet in the future. I want to high five every single person who has gone out of their way to help somebody. It really is the most beautiful thing to me, to see humanity and not just humans. We all have something to learn from each other. 

It's just so incredibly beautiful.
You were put here on this earth as part of God's plan.
I cannot bring myself to believe that I was put here on this planet, like a puzzle piece, with a plan set out for me. There is more to this universe than Earth. What about the collapsing stars that made it possible for us to even be here? I couldn't be here without those dying stars and evolution.
There are three kingdoms in heaven. You will be split up (even with your family) depending on how good you were.
Is this heaven or a talent show? I have the common sense of what's right and what's wrong. (from moral evolution, not church). I don't push people down stairs or call them mean names. I'm very accepting of people who are accepting of others. But since I deny the Holy Ghost and don't believe in this church, I can't be in the top kingdom. Instead I get to be in a lower kingdom where others can come visit me, but I can't go visit them. This blows.
No tattoos. No double piercings.
Why? That tatted/pierced dude is way nicer than that return missionary. Your outward appearance isn't your life.
Being gay is a sin. It's the Devil working really hard to tempt you.
Wanting chocolate while you're on a diet is a temptation, surely not from the Devil.. but from what your body wants. Can we really compare that to homosexuals? No. Don't tell people who they can and cannot love.

It's about time we stop telling other people how to live. Your version of a good person doesn't match up with mine.
