If you can't have faith in god, may I suggest exercising faith in traditional family? The recent decision of our Canadian government to dismantle the family is disturbing to me. If we are honest truth seekers, then let me ask what is the honest truth about family? The family "can be" the closest thing to Godliness on the earth.
Family was instituted by God, who intended it to provide safety, security, and love for each "one" of his children. We can all do better in supporting the family. It is the only "real" institution in our nation/world. It is an organization that has been set up to last forever, to perpetuate itself throughout all time, to reproduce and keep going forever, even on into the eternities.
So, exercise a little more faith in family, in the name of God. Know that family is truth, and have confidence to work toward creating a solid one by living true to the principles that uphold it. It takes work, but it's worth it.
I am grateful to belong to a religion that upholds the family and provides constant support for parents who are trying their best to teach truth to their children.
Shame, shame, shame on Canada. What have you done? You will be held accountable, and I fear the outcome.
If you think this is gay bashing, then you don't understand the issue here. I know and love people who don't uphold my moral beliefs. They are certainly free to choose. However, if this gets pushed into the religions of America and it tries to dictate who must be allowed good standing privileges, no matter how they choose to live their life, I guess all moral Christians will be at war.
The world is in a mess and we have two choices. 1. Make it worse, 2. Clean it up.
The best way I know to clean up the world, is to clean up the family. Dress them up, take them to church, teach faith in God, tell them about prayer.
