I don't understand how people can go through life thinking everything is either black or white, that people can be so arrogant to believe that they know the difference and they are so knowledgeable that there is no gray area in life.
I mean seriously, I'm not so confident and arrogant that I can make judgement calls on how people live, or what they think, I'm not them, and not experiencing what they are.
I'm so frustrated with this whole thing I could scream. It would be one thing to state that it is your belief that this is the way it is, how in the hell can you state "This is certainly so because the way I read this book that was written over 2000 years ago states something like this.."
I'm so angry.
I understand that the bible is the word of God, but there are so many problems I have with that statement. A man put these books of the bible together and said it was so. Are you telling me there is no doubt in anyone else's mind that some of these writters didn't input some of their own personal ideas? That you were there when it was written so you know exactly the circumstances of what was written?
When I bring these questions to the surface I'm made to feel like such a heathen, like I'm allowed to question organized religion, but to question the bible is work of the devil. I can't follow it, some people would view this as an escape to explain myself, but these people are not me, have not experience what I have, and do not live in my mind.
How can you tell me that homosexuality is a choice? That it is a symptom of a wound from the past when you have never experienced it, when you have never lived in my skin. I don't expect others to understand, but don't speak about it as if it's a black and white issue when you have never lived my life.
I doubt anyone who reads this can really follow my thoughts, or even understand where I'm coming from, and it's just that much more frustrating. I just wish I could switch lives with people, or let them experience me from the inside of the mind for 24 hours. It would be such a great way to learn more about each other, and the human race in general.
A good analogy would be a situation where a woman is telling a man what it's like to have a penis, or vise versa. One really has NO idea about the other, only assumptions.
Just in general, don't make judgment calls on people unless you have walked a mile in their shoes.
