Out of one closet, into another …

I came out to my parents when I was 16 years old, but it wasn’t until 10 years later that I worked up enough courage to come out as an atheist.  I knew that their god would be more forgiving of my homosexuality than my complete belief in ‘Him’ or ‘His’ son, Jesus.

Tyler, @FAQueers

I came out of both around the same time. I think that I came out as atheist first though.

Medical Science

First of all, if you get sick, its your own damn fault.

If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee. —Exodus 15:26

When you are sick, rely on faith-based medicine. Prayer and faith alone will cure you.

Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up. —James 5:14-15

For as it says in the Psalms,

The Lord … healeth all thy diseases. — Psalm 103:2-3

And as Jesus said to the woman who touched his garment,

Thy faith hath made thee whole. — Matthew 9:22Mark 5:34Luke 8:48

Or just touch your religious leader’s handkerchief or something.

So that from his body were brought unto the sick handkerchiefs or aprons, and the diseases departed from them, and the evil spirits went out of them. — Acts 19:12

But whatever you do, don’t go to a doctor. God is insulted if you trust science more than faith.

And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians. — 2 Chronicles 16:12

I remember being so in love with the story of the woman who was sick until she touched Jesus’s cloak from behind. I used to think it was so beautiful and awe-inspiring what believing can do. Key word: Used.

If you don’t believe in God then why are you living and existing in this world?

Even Satan believes that God really exists. Believe, God is here. :)

… What even?

This is the worst argument I’ve ever really heard. 
Satan believes it, so it must be true.
So… something we don’t believe in, believes in another thing we don’t believe in.
Wow.
