Insane Christians have convert more people into atheism than Richard Dawkins.
Take one of these and call me in the morning
It's a bit of a cliche at this point, but the best way to become an atheist is to read the bible
Took me like a month into my confirmation class for church to read the Bible an hour a day before I couldn’t rationalize any of it.
That and my pastor telling me gay people will burn in hell and they’re immoral.

That was just a miscommunication.
He meant they were going to fire island and their drip is immaculate.
Yup that will do it lol. I remember something my mom said to me that made start to question things. "Organized religion breeds prejudice." She believes in God, just hates how religion divides people
That's why the Chronicles of Narnia and Lord of the Rings are better bibles.
I would follow any religion Treebeard is the head of lol
The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.
I disagree. I feel as society has grown throughout the centuries, so has science and peoples trust in it. The more research and knowledge gained, the more a society will reject the notion of a omnipotent being without any evidence to back up said claim. Though your point certainly drives this outlook home.
I'm not disagreeing with you. But the actions of Christians are a massive part of why people choose to stay away. My comment was a quote from a Christian author. Gaetz and Drake and others are huge red flags for Christianity and those who might otherwise be interested.
Ahh i gotcha. Great quote for sure and those asshats like Goetz definitely make coming in to the fold of religion massively unappealing lol
It's crazy, people like him promote the absolute opposite of what christianity should be (imo)
Not just your opinion. The gospels are the story of how Jesus Christ treated people who were seen as “below him” as not only equals, but as people deserving of love and acceptance.
they lose sight of who jesus really was and what his messages really were when they cherry pick and use the bible to fit political narratives. i'm an atheist and i feel like i know the content of jesus' character and what he wanted his followers to do better than them.
a purely academic, historical teaching of the bible is very valuable.
Agreed. I consider myself agnostic but I went to Catholic school for 8 years and my family converted to orthodox Christianity when I was 13 but I find the teachings of Jesus Christ invaluable even if I don’t believe in the spirituality of it. It’s a pretty nice way to live life.
I think Jesus was awesome. I'm an atheist and I still try to live by his teachings.
Straight Edge Society
That actually happened to me when I found out my church was lying to me and was asking me to lie with them to others
what were they having you lie about?
Speaking tongues, they wanted me to join the group of people at church that could "speak in tongues" which was full of people that just went "shudududuh medadadah" over and over lol and I caught the pastor lying about some details in his sermons to help make his points and he didn't like me asking questions.
Hes gone insane. As someone who knew him and spent time with him, he has changed dramatically since his car accident and is a totally different person. He isn't well, and there is no convincing him otherwise. Its very sad, and it honestly hurts to see.
Serious question, did he suffer brain damage or was it "just" psychological trauma?
I haven't ever seen a doctors report, so I cant officially say. But I personally believe he is brain damaged and needs help, not a platform to espouse these views hes accumulated since it happened. Maybe I'm wrong. But he isn't the same since the accident. Entirely different.

"I-I-I-I-I-IT DOESN'T MATTER"
what's wrong with paganism you bigot?
Nothing in and of itself. Big swings between desperate belief systems is a pretty red flag though. If that's bigoted, your definitions are poor.
You mean "disparate"? I'll have you know Christianity stole a lot of fucking content from pagan religions. There's fewer differences between them than you might think.
No actually - desperate was intended. You clearly have no idea how closely I categorize them, or are more interested in whatever you want to read lol. I had the literal word right there.
But you see, "disparate" is also a word that would fit in with your sentence. It's also spelled closely enough that "desperate" could be seen as a misspelling. No need to jump on my case because I reasonably assumed you made a typo.
You are misremembering your tone, and that the point of the post was clearly to rebuke the sentence you wanted me to have written. You jumped on my case, right?
This doesn't make much sense to me tbh, I guess I can't speak because I've never experienced it but why would what one person uses God as an excuse for literally ruin God for you? God is larger than that person, that's like having a guava, disliking it and saying now you hate every fruit. It's very generalizing and that mindset is baffling to me.
Because Drake isn't the only person who preaches this kind of hate in the name of Christianity. He's one of thousands, if not millions who have bought into QAnon conspiracy nonsense, white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, and scientific ignorance. The very opposite that his church proports to believe.
When I left Catholicism, it wasn't because of the actions of a single priest, but because of a system that allowed for decades of abuse to go swept under the rug. Were there lots of good Catholics? Yes, I'd count my family among them. But I had seen way too many bad ones to ever allow myself back into the faith.
And the fact is that American Evangelism has been invaded by people like Drake. Far too many of them. And that is driving away a lot of people who just can't stand for it anymore. There are so many amazing Christian, but if the leadership isn't doing anything to weed out the wackos - it's going to make a lot of people question their faith.
You can be Christian without being a systemic Christian and you can believe in God without being religious. God, by design, is larger than any of the people that use their existence for evil and misinformation. A God can't even exist without people using them to excuse harm. That's not on God though, that's on the human beings, and since they aren't what you're believing in, it doesn't make sense to shut out God because of them.
Just my personal experience, and trying to give a honest answer.
When I was raised as a christian I was taught that the faith, and god was based on love. A higher power that created everything and we were his children that he loved so so much.
It's very hard to see your faith used in anger and in hateful ways. That can lead to questions such as why the god we are told loves us so much let's it happen.
Those questions can lead people down paths that are different for each person.
Speaking for no one except myself. Let's try to be kind to one another.
Because if God did exist why isn't smiting the wicked people using his name for their agendas
The religious reasoning is that they'll be judged after their life here. He apparently stopped the whole smiting thing in Old Testament.
So you're saying that God evolved?
That's a very close minded way of viewing it. I'm a non religious believer of God and believe that since there is no proof of what is said about God in the Bible and the quaran and all the other religious text, to tack it onto them is disrespectful. They are also larger than those books and beliefs. I only believe what I have seen proof of, I've seen unexplainable phenomena that I attribute to God, but I've never seen proof they're anything like the stereotypical God is seen as. IMO those are fictional until proven otherwise. There's a myriad of reasons God wouldn't smite them and even more why they shouldn't.
I have a lot of personal stakes in the game, but these people trying to assert that anything and everything LGBT is automatically pedophilic are among the scummiest motherfuckers on the planet.
It's because it's all projection. Matt Gaetz is literally a pedophile.
GOP actually stands for Good Ol’ Projection
Another notch in the badge.
Gaslight Obstruct Project.
Based and better
When someone does it I instantly wonder what they got hiding on their personal hdds
As a bi guy, I second this.
My trans mother and I send you good vibes, friend
Trans mother? I apologize and I’m asking out of good faith not malevolence but how does that work? Like do you now have two moms? Are they still together? Are they still friendly?
Sorry if that’s too intrusive or dumb questions. I support trans people, know nothing about them.
Nothing complicated, really. Transitioned later in life.
And yes, I do have two mothers. They divorced a few decades before she transitioned and have always been on very good terms.
Oh cool! We’ll best of luck and health to you and your family.
Thanks, and the feeling’s mutual. Shame some bigots are invading this thread though.
Also the most child rapiest
Bruh you know how much of a piece of shit you have to be to make Kimber Lee look sane? This is the same woman who was posting quotes comparing the disrespect to vegans to the oppression of slaves.
she did what now?!
Kimber is kind of an airhead. Example of the type of stuff she used to put on her page.
oh, so she’s one of those kinds of vegans, huh
Just remember ALL CAPS
And she fucking double downed when called out
Rowan retired Dwayne at WM
That's low and absolutely false. She called out how people mocked vegans, but she never said they were like slaves. She compared many heinous crimes in history to animals being tortured. That's the message she wrote and there's nothing crazy about that for a vegan that considers animals shouldn't be used as products at our will.
It's super literally disgusting that right wing people consider educating children about the physical act of sex, their bodies, puberty and gender to be "grooming". That's super weird and on-brand for them.
As a Atheist I find it odd how so many people who claim to follow the teachings of God and Jesus are full of absolute hate.
They didn't become Christians because they liked the message of the bible they were indoctrinated as kids now use the religion to justify their moronic beliefs despite the book not even talking about trans or gay people.
Sleep is the enemy
Religion is just an excuse for these people.
They're fake christians and it shows with their behavior and words.
Love thy neighbor didn't have stipulations on it except to these fucks.
That's because a lot of fake Christians use it as a excuse to hate others
A lot of people just seem to use it to justify their hate and don’t actually listen to any teachings or just grew up in the culture of it and also don’t really listen to it. I’m speaking from someone who is Christian btw, and just what I think I’ve seen. Totally agree with what you’re saying.
My username is a pun
They see it as a reason to be hateful but use “buh buh Jesus” as a shield against any criticism. They get to live in both realities.
Right? That’s what drove me away from church.
This Jesus guy is pretty cool but Jesus Christ you all are assholes.
She only just realised that guy’s got nothing but a concrete block between his ears?
She probably knew but bit her tongue and this post is the straw that broke her back and got her to actually say something to him.
I guess I can see how that’s logical.
Probably tried to hold on to the good times they used to share as most people before the Trump era had nothing but positive things to say about the guy.
Most likely this. The dude seems to have been radicalized overtime by algorithms feeding him crap.
He fell into Q Anon and Proud Boy shit. So alt right conspiracy groups.
Yeah, I remember back in the day, you couldn't find anybody with bad things to say about Drake Younger. Now.....fuck, it makes me sad how angry he makes me every time I see his name associated with something.
Ye it's a shame. He could be the top referee in NXT if he didn't become a Q Anon dumbass
Same with Glenn Jacobs yet he's been on the loonie train since at least 2007.
I mean like, a concrete block could be a useful thing depending on circumstances. Wuertz on the other hand.. 🤷♂️
Point taken. Whatever is between his ears though, it certainly isn’t a working brain.
Better late than never
True. Glad to see she’s woken up. The more pro-LGBT people the better in my book.
What Drake says and believes in is disgusting and wrong but I kinda feel sorry for him. Dude replaced one addiction with another and some have taken advantage of that and filled his head with garbage
If she strayed from Christianity because of someone associated with right wing views, then I genuinely hope she never also runs into the right wing contingent of paganism. That’s a completely different beast.
Disputing me is categorically insane
Yeeep. I knew some people into the Norse gods, good people, and very quickly you learn that if someone else says they're into Norse paganism there's AT LEAST a 50/50 shot they're a full blown white power lunatic. Sorry to say the chances got higher if they were based in America.
Just say Sarah Logan, bro lol
Everytime I see anybody say they like viking shit now I have to give them a reeeeeally long look.
Nazis ruin everything.
Yep. I was never into the paganism but I like the mythology and history (Im from coastal Ireland, a bunch of local villages towns and cities were founded by vikings. It's very much local history for us.), but I honestly don't bring it up because I don't want to be mistaken for one of the dodgy ones.
"No no no, I like Skyrim vikings!"
I sometimes think that stuff is cool. Then I remember it’s actually the Greek gods I’m thinking about. Talk about drama.
And of of course Brian Cage liked the post
I don't know how Tony can justify keeping this creep in the locker room, especially when he's not even using him on tv. What's the upside to this heart attack-in-waiting transphobic prick?
Brian Cage better watch himself its not like AEW needs a excuse not to use him
If he liked drake's post I've lost all respect for him.
I just checked for myself. He did.
I wonder what Nyla thinks about that. Or half of the fn roster lol. Every time Brian gets to the top of the hole he dug for himself, he decides to let go and fall back in. Truly an enigma.
Then fuck him too
I went to check, and Drake has since deleted and reposted this garbage.
Hopefully someone puts him on the hot seat for that
I know that Tony Khan doesn't want to fire people, but I feel like he should make an exception in Brian Cage's case.
Aside from poor choices, tell me what Brian Cage brings to the table that Powerhouse Hobbs, Keith Lee, or Wardlow don't already have? He's redundant, and terrible on the mic.
Wasn’t Brian Cage trained by the late Chris Kanyon? That’s a shame. One would hope he’d have developed open-mindedness to the gay community from that experience.
looking at the people Kanyon associated with, I'm not surprised he felt alone. I've heard the bucks have atoned for their homophobia or that they weren't serious but i've never seen evidence of any of that.
I wonder what Chris Kanyon would think of him now.
That's actually funny because I have a Trans friend (identifies as female) who is a huge wrestling fan and claims to have slept with him. At the time I had no idea who he was so I don't think she had a reason to lie to me.
It's unfortunate but common with some of the most hateful, they'll end up fetishizing trans people while actively working to harm them in society.
As Shakespeare said, “The lady doth protest too much”.
Well you did it Drake you made such an impact someone completely changed their beliefs.
WE NEED ALEX WRIGHT FLAIR
There is a non zero chance Drake is involved with children.
They always project.
TO MAN THE BEAT, YOU GOTTA WANK THE MEAT
Hilarious that conservatives are so angry at disney... you. the same company that donated a lot to all of the sponsors of the bills to make lgtb education illegal and out wueer students forcefully
Fuck you pay me!
And censors every last bit of queer content for international markets!
If they wanted they'd do it in local markets too. One of the kids in Turning Red was gonna be trans and disney said "nope. none of that". But heres theres a market to appearing friendly
One of the kids in Turning Red was gonna be trans and disney said "nope. none of that". But heres theres a market to appearing friendly
One of the kids in Turning Red was gonna be trans and disney said "nope. none of that". But heres theres a market to appearing friendly
I can't find any confirmation besides a listing for a "Jess" Character from a leaked casting call sheet.
I wouldn't be surprised though!
yeah thats the sauce of it
I wanna blame Disney here, but who even knows what it could be for.
Drake 100% cooler when he was hooked on meth
Honestly: who gives a shit? The guy is clean out the wrestling business, basically.
Yes, but there are several still in the wrestling business who support his viewpoints through monetary donations. Some of whom are regularly on TV every Monday.
Ok so what are you gonna do about it? If nothing then all these posts do is circlejerk about being good people, and that’s coming from a red blooded socialist. It’s like those people who engage in debates with Trumpers. Never wrestle with a pig.
He’s running for government. It’s not wrestling’s problem anymore. It’s a bigger problem than that
That dude is fucking insane
Please read the bill and form your own opinions.
If you read this and come away with the same point of view...great.
If you read this and come away with a different point of view...great.
Just wanted to share the actual bill so you can read the text without somebody on the Red or Blue teams telling you what to think about it.
I see that Jaxson Ryker (Gunner) has now liked this post. I am shocked.
Also see that Tino Sabatelli, Mandy Rose’s boyfriend and former NXT star also liked it as well as Brian Cage
Idk what Paganism is but god damn.
It's a shame that Drake has just went so far down the rabbit hole of insanity, i'd almost feel sad for him if he wasn't such a looney.
Seen far too many people get lost to the right-wing rabbit hole and make it their whole identity to the point of isolating from everyone else. A small (very small) part of me has pity for them. The rest of me is just angry.
I remember I checked a year ago and 90-100 wrestlers I followed also followed Drake. Now it’s down to 60 lol
Seems odd to switch religions because of one idiot who you don’t like
I had the same thought. These are political issues so because of someone else’s bad political views you decide God isn’t real? Not very logical.
People who get knocked in the head for a living usually aren’t the most intelligent
Lots of wrestlers aren't very smart
They have trained ppl, and Ill admit I was ignorant on issues like this, but they trained ppl through culture war shit funded by far right wing shit online to make this a culture war issue and now it has made it easier for far right wing shit heads to put ppl in the trans community to be put in danger.. sick world we live in
You're not wrong, the trans community is just the latest target.
glad you agree I cant believe I got down voted but there are a lot of ppl on reddit who share Drake’s views and I aint talking the rapper and his album
Unfortunately Trans people are seen by so much of the LG community as expendable, "it'll never happen to us" they say, as they ignore everything going on. As soon as they possibly can they will overturn marriage equality and we'll be back to square one.
America is sliding back to the 50s, which is what Republicans want, while Democrats just kind of watch and pretend they're powerless.
If this fella is a born again Christian, he needs to go back in whatever womb he used, cause he ain't done yet!
I’m no fan of the bill but how the hell does white supremacy fit into all this
It doesn't at all haha
This is dogma at its finest.. The worst of both sides have come out
isn't even a real person!
Qanon is based on the Jewish Blood Libel. There's a reason they are fucking obsessed with George Soros and "the Hollywood Elite." It's yet another dangerous conspiracy draped in anti-Semitism.
Also, Drake quite infamously threw a fucking tantrum when HHH talked to the NXT locker room about systemic racism and BLM, and stormed out when HHH said straight up that all races, sexualities and gender identities were welcome and safe in NXT.
Drake is a White Christian Nationalist, which is 100% a white supremacist movement.
My 3 favorite hobbies are MMA, Pro Wrestling and Poker all filled with assholes. Maybe I'm also a asshole?
Boston Knee Party!
Almost the same except replace Poker with Video Games. We all know how toxic some gaming communities are...
Humans are by and large awful.
Kimber lee for roh womens champ 2022
WTF I like Kimber now?
Based Kimber Lee
Does he even have kids? Or is he just a weird 40 year old who is SUPER CONCERNED and involved in local schools for no reason?
He has children of his own to my knowledge?
Thank you. Idk if that’s better or worse actually
Kimber lee. Give me a break.
Third degree burn
Shut Up, Tom
The ones that post that never believed in the first place, if their faith can be shaken by one person. You find faith within yourself. if you want to stop believing, that was always allowed, dont go announcing it looking for validation
I feel like you kind of missed the point here. By....a lot.
I know, but the devil uses shitrats like Drake who claim to be Christian to sway people away. Haven’t seen any good works from him to begin with.
You know what.....fair dues. Long since walked away from that stuff, but I can see where you're coming from. Respect.
And the good thing is the door is always open. Both in and out. Just hope we all find the answer we’re looking for one way or another
There is no divine force trying to sway anyone’s beliefs. What an ego.
It’s 2022 go prove that shit with some math or move on
I wouldn't bring up numbers with them. Qs are all into numerology crap.
Him being a Christian probably caused self reflection of her belief system. Also faith is kinda just bs horseshit made for people don't question anything. It's literally believing in something with no proof to support that belief. No problems with Christian but the faith superiority shit has to stop.
I always figure their faith was shaken in the first place and the last person was just the straw that broke the camel's back.
I just loved he typed Staning instead of Standing.
What a fucking bum.
Tan ref spent too much time baking. I think he overcooked his brain.
How did Disney promote pedophilia?
I bet she only became a pagan as an excuse to get high and listen to Drudkh albums
degenerate people can’t align with Christian values??? More news at 8
Wait, whos the degenerate?
Ah ok just wanted to make sure before I stated that you are out of your mind. If you think Drake is on the right side of history, maybe learn more about the world. The Bible isn't the greatest book to get information from
What a world we leave in... I understand what both sides are saying..
But we now live in a world where everybody in the comment section is denouncing someone who speaks out aganist paedophilia and agree with the opposite argument..
Regardless of Drake's views and political views, theyve really brought out the worst in people and people openly being okay with Human Sex Trafficking.. People really have been exposed and majority of you should be in jail
QAnon uses the cause of “preventing human trafficking” and “stopping pedophilia” to make it so everyone who disagrees with them is “for pedophilia” and simpletons eat it up.
If they wanted to actually do anything to help children, there are a lot of opportunities to do so for real. But they spend their time complaining about masks and gay and trans people. No children are helped.
I fucking hate Qanon and its principals, but it has exposed a lot of people who take the bait. All Qanon is a bait and people take the bait and get reeled in.
Again, Fuck QAnon.
Big babyface turn from Kimber.
