Ten ways christians are hypocrital1- "We hate how communists sacrifice the individual in name of the group. That's why we do the exact same thing to gay people."
2- "Homosexuality isn't natural!" [is told it is] "Ah, but we shouldn't follow animals!"
3- [Random passage about Jesus' psychotic outbursts] "You're taking things out of context!" [then proceeds to use biblical passages against homosexuality without considering the cultural meaning]
4- "Pride is a sin!" [then proceeds to use "I'm proud to be a christian!"]
5- "We respect free will! That's why we prevent gay marriage from even being a possibility!"
6- "You heathens act so holier than thou, thinking you know the truth! That's why we are the chosen ones, and you're only going to be saved if you think exactly like us!"

The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
Keep in Touch!
