Good Evening everyone and a Happy Easter everyone!
When you're away, you have more time to think about things, and although I had a wonderful day today with family, there are quite a few points I wanted to pick up on from things throughout the day!
First is from a conversation I had with James this morning about religion (what with it being about Easter and all) - and, the more I thought about it, the more difficult it was to put into words. Now, we all know there are dwindling numbers of devout religious citizens among us, but, I still think religion plays a part in who we are as a people. This is how the conversation went:
James - "I'd like to have something to believe in, more comfort at death :/ but my brain says 'NO IT'S ILLOGICAL! so Science FTW aha :P"
Me - "Of course it's illogical, but where's the harm in the beautiful hymn music, awe inspiring architecture and art, the poetry or moral, the hope and comfort that millions find? Sometimes I like to put being human before science."
James - "Hmm, a nice view on life!"
Me - "Hmm, I'm not an optimist by any means, but, I guess life's too short to dash hope, fight logic all the time and why not give people that inner peace? I know religion tears people apart, but look how it brings people together."
The point remains, self-confessed proud atheists are more than happy to take a stab at religion, and indeed I am as well on some occasions, but, perhaps we are all a little intolerant of religion sometimes? I dunno.. maybe not. That's my view.
Anyway, I hope we're all enjoying our chocolate?
Good, I'm glad I've got your attention.
For everyone who uses 'gay' as an insult, consciously or subconsciously, I want you to stop and think about it. Now we're at a time of being 'at peace' with fellow humans, I think we all should just think about it.

So, to everyone who thinks it's a bad thing to be gay, to be different, if you think it's bad, or unnatural, you know what, you're nothing but ignorant. I won't damn you to hell, I won't complain at you, but, perhaps you'd benefit from opening your eyes a bit, eh?
In a slightly unrelated note, Rachel writes a fashion blog, and I'll be honest, I've actually used it to find things before, it's seriously worth a read - check it out here: http://wheredidyougetthat.blogspot.com/
That's all everyone. Sweet Dreams.
