It’s no one else’s fault that you aren’t that

I don’t understand religious people. The bible is a book. It’s just a book, written by some dudes living in the sand a couple thousand years ago. Why do we have laws and arguments about it so often? Who gives a fuck? You don’t want two people getting married because of what some guy living in the sand wrote two thousand years ago? You don’t even know his name, what he did with his life, and you want him deciding other people’s futures?
Things have changed. I’m an atheist and I celebrate Christmas. Why? Because it’s about showing your family and friends that you love them with gifts. I don’t care if it’s some carpenter’s birthday. That’s not why I celebrate it. It’s evolved into something else in modern society. Same goes for marriage.
And if marriage is supposed to be a religious pact only, then why are we giving so many benefits, financially, to married couples? Why is the state getting involved? Take those away and I swear a lot more people won’t give a shit about getting married. Either make marriage exist for religious purposes only, or let everyone get married as they please.
And I don’t understand being “under oath” and “to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God?” There is no big guy in the sky that will smite you down in the court of law if you make something up. That has never happened. Why do we even bother saying that? Evidence is what decides who’s guilty and who isn’t. Not someone’s word.
I want to live in a future where organized religion is separate from the law. Have your own beliefs about how we got here, where life comes from, where we are going after we die. But don’t have it affect my life or anyone else’s life. If “God” loves everyone, then don’t you think he’d want everyone to be happy?
