"I come from Australia, and in Australia we’re very laid back about religion (racial intolerance is much more our thing). Its quite unusual for religion to be brought up by our politicians, but when our previous Prime Minister announced that he was pro-gay marriage despite the fact he was himself of the Christian faith, it was depressing how much hate got thrown his way. Don’t get me wrong he was a terrible PM, but the man had the courage to temper his beliefs with social justice, and our newly elected head of state is embarrassingly conservative."

Ah, an oldie, but a goodie. And perfect for October.

“Here in the bible belt, people donate a ton of money to their churches and apparently even pray online for dead babies to have normal lives. The sad thing is that if they really wanted to stop things like this, they could help greatly by donating that money to research which, ya know, can actually make a difference.”
(Thanks Mr. Green)

"Tim and Steven are both young, conservative Christians, so it makes sense that they’d see heresy in actually doing what Jesus said.
"Also, a double STFU to Steven. You’re not clever."
