I’d like to start off by saying, some of the kindest, most loving humans I have ever had the pleasure of knowing are deeply devout, so there’s that. Now, that said, there are some very basic issues with Christianity (and most all religions) that one can not resolve without ignoring logic. At some point, you have to say to yourself “Even though it doesn’t make sense, I believe because I want to and that’s that.” Which is fine ( I know, thats what “Faith” is) but It just seems insane to hate, exclude, or belittle anyone based on such ambiguous and contradictory text (let alone to somehow allow it to influence public policy. Just my humble opinion:)
