“There is a tendency for humanists and atheists to read religions, and Islam in particular, as literally as fundamentalists do; to ignore the fact that what believers do is interpret the same text a hundred different ways.”

هه، ربما كان هذا سبب احساسي أن شيئا ما خاطئ في تفكير الملحدين. الأصوليون حرفيون في قراءة كل شيئ، الملحد مرن في كل شيئ إلا في تعاليم الأديان..

“Us humans have always been as made up of stories as we are of blood and guts and bones. From the very beginning, people have told stories. They sang them and danced them and spoke them and painted them on the walls of caves and carved them into living trees and etched them onto bones, so that their children and their children’s children would remember them and use them to find meaning and purpose in their existence. To this very day, almost all religious texts are stories, because we don’t learn how to live or why we live from lists of rules or lengthy sermons. We figure out our truths by stretching ourselves across other people’s fictional worlds. We test our boundaries, we process our own personal moral codes, we try on different vocations, we examine our sexualities, we summon courage, we dig up hope, we ask questions we’re too afraid or unallowed to ask in real life. And yeah, sometimes we escape to other worlds, because our world can be cruel and unyielding and our spirits need a safe place to rest.”

I’ve been pretty lazy about posting on here lately, but I’ll try to catch up soon. These are from Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

“A person of good intelligence and of sensitivity cannot exist in this society very long without having some anger about the inequality ― and it’s not just a bleeding-heart, knee-jerk, liberal kind of a thing ― it is just a normal human reaction to a nonsensical set of values where we have cinnamon flavored dental floss and there are people sleeping in the street.”

Ah, i see the overwhelming amount of queer women of color in our media has tired you out. Clearly they should try something new and refreshing like a heterosexual “will they or won’t they” plot
