The Chronicles Of An Angry Black Queer
It should be noted that I am writing from my perspective, which is that of a Black, masculine presenting gay man who happens to be an Atheist. I will be writing about my thoughts and experiences as an activist, human and life in general. These posts will not be academic or even properly written in some of your opinions.
God Aint Real & You Are Full Of Shit
Today a post was made that was perpetuating anti trans rhetoric and etcetera. There was a comment on this post that really set me off, because it is how EVERY Black Christian I have come across tends to act, save for a few. Christians think that they are so fucking smart that they tend to not listen to logic in situations where ever the conversation about gender identity and sexual orientation pop up. If this ain't you then you know someone who acts like this...
"They should take this child from here, she is confusing this of his true identity. Whatever your sexual preferences as an adult is your business. But when it comes to a child I think you should raise a child as a child whatever gender he or she may be. To confuse a child because your life is confusing is not fair. This is foolishness, and it's abuse in the highest degree to me. If this child was born a hermaphrodite it would be different but because you're making this child out to be something that he or she is not, is not acceptable. She needs to have some parenting classes and some counseling because this is far from normal as a mother to another mother" - Yvonne Brooks (random ass christian)
I got something for all of your asses, if that's the line of thinking that you deliberately wish to go with. I mean, the idea that anyone would want to take someone's child because the way they allow their child to grow while not endangering them is just fucked up. Who made you bible thumping Negroes the gender police and where did you get your degree to mislabel a person who is intersex in the age of google? Vacation bible school done got y'all all the fucked up. when will the respectability politics and the church die?! If y'all would say this shit, it is safe to assume that you all believe homosexuality, bisexuality and being trans is a choice. A choice that does not exist!
I knew when I was in Head Start that I was gay, same gender loving, or homosexual if ya feeling really froggy. What is it with you people being so quick to cry abuse because you see someone as a deviant? Someone different from your fucked up ass social norms, someone, people who are willing to live out loud in spite of your book of fairy dust and matching hats. Being homosexual, bisexual or trans is not a choice, it is simply who the fuck we are. keep the bible babble, sky daddy talk to your damn selves. I am seriously tired of the astronomical amounts of religious privilege you fucktards are pushing. I'm not even sorry for going off like this, we can't be nice to people like you, we are dying at your hand.
"...God did not create us to be confused or to be homosexual I believe in the word of God and I stand on the word of God so yes homosexuality is a choice." - Random Christian Dunce
Then, THEN, you lose your minds when one is unapologetically an Atheist. You call anyone different from you wicked, AS IF you were vested with power of never ending knowledge and judgment. Like your Wednesday/Sunday shit don't stank! You are the wicked ones, YOU don't get to choose who people should and shouldn't be. You are the reason, CHRISTIANS, YOU are the reason this world is so fucked up. Seek help, because the white man got you believing Jesus is real, he was effective when he beat it into us during slavery. you really believe that some "God sent his son into this sinful world to die for" us "and so that we might have a chance at eternal life..." don't you? Fuck that, how is this the reason for you to be good?
Quoting scriptures chosen for you by some mediocre white man, "John 3:16 For God so Love the world he gave his only begotten son." Yes I find that hard to believe, because love is the most powerful and passionate tool mankind has. Love was not given to us by some creator, LOVE is something that is pure, love is something that is tainted by Christianity to justify hate. You are not of love, you are a damn slave. If your deity was so powerful, it wouldn't need to be jealous. The only source I need to survive is food, water and good friends who respects EVERYONE'S humanity. Gone ask me "if God isn't real how are you breathing?" Easy, by inhaling air and exhaling carbon dioxide and while science is a far better measure of life, we aint here for that equation to white atheism when yall use that creation argument. Talmbout "We're not some creation that just mutated from the big bang that atheist or whomever believes. I just don't understand how or why people REFUSE to believe in God."
"...I, Black Atheist demand that you not question my existence or my humanity. I most definitely see religion and deity as separate, and in my view religion is a means of social control and domination for those who are in control of governments and other institutions that are used to govern the masses." - APW
If there was a God yall are its customer service reps and yall do a shitty job at retaining customers, see the list of closing churches..... www.google.com
FACT: G-d does not exist to me and never has and I make no apologies to those who may be offended.
FACT: We hide our status as Atheist, we attend churches, mosques, synagogues, and other various places of worship. We are often exposed to the constant barrage of G-d talk on in all mediums of daily life.
FACT: Society at large is problematic when it comes to religious privilege of various kinds.
FACT: We are still Black and we still experience the plight that comes with the birthright of Black skin in a racist society.
I will continue to speak out until we get to a place where we don't have worry about someone flexing their religious privilege. Where responding with chastisement about how THEIR G-d is the real deal and that we need to accept said G-d for our very survival will be frowned upon. When the time comes, we will no longer stand for being forced into a prayer circle or saying grace at a dinner. Mark my words, a time will come when religious privilege will cease to exist.

THE DOORS OF THE CHURCH ARE NOW CLOSED, JUST REMEMBER...
