You’re certainly right about not being rational.

A member of a religious order once told me that even if Catholic homophobia is hard to understand that we must all be patient and respect our differences.

Excuse me? You want me to respect somebody who calls me depraved?

Are you fucking insane?

And she thought she was being rational and sensible!

I don’t know what it is about religion that so often shuts off people’s ability to think.
