We Just Want to Sin

Fellow Atheists, I’m sorry. I just have to get this off my chest. I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been trying to keep our secret way from the religious people, but my concious has gotten the better of me. No! Don’t try to stop me. I’ve made a decision, and I’m going to say what I have to say. The religious people are right, and there is no point denying it anymore.

I am an atheist JUST because I want to sin.

I can’t believe I’m about to reveal this dark secret of mine. It’s just such a shameful thing, but my insides are burning with the lie. I have to get this out. My first sin is, and man, what a horrible person I am for wanting to do this, and even worse I’m just totally excited about sinning like this, but when my kids misbehave, I really want to discuss their actions with them, get them to agree that they can and will do better, then give them a hug and tell them I love them.

Whew! I’m so glad I got that off my chest! Jesus Fucking Christ, I know that I’m supposed to kill them by beating them to death with rocks (Deuteronomy 21:18-21), or at least beat the fuck out of them (Proverbs 13:24) like god tells me to do. But I’m just such a SINNER, what with not killing my kids and all. But that’s it. My secret is out. I was a closet “lovingly guide my children” guy, but now I’m open about it.

You know, I know I’ll be judged and probably sent to hell for talking to my children and lovingly making corrections, but damn, it just feels good to be open about it. Whew!

I guess that’s not all, though. I have another sin, another shameful secret, that I’d like to get off my chest as well. I mean, most of you don’t know me, so hopefully this won’t get out to my friends and family that I do this, because I’m feeling theraputic getting this off my chest but I don’t want to drag my family into this evil heresey and embarrass them to the entire community.

So here goes: When I meet someone and I think they are a decent person, and I find out I can trust them, and we can do legitimate business or be legitimate friends, I don’t begin treating them like shit if I find out they are gay.

There! It’s out there now! I don’t judge gay people and act like an asshole to them. Ugh! I know, I know that’s just such a disgusting thing to do, what with not automatically judging people and all. I mean, they might end up having gay sex if I don’t treat them like shit! But I do it anyway! And if I can REALLY dig into this….. wow, this really gets to the heart of my sin….. I don’t even worry that a gay person will hit on me and make me gay! I completely don’t even worry about that. I don’t stand up to condemn them even a little bit! Not at all! To be honest, I could actually not care at all if someone is gay or straight or anything else, for that matter.

I know this makes me an evil person. I know I’m supposed to not only hate gay people, but actively be judgemental and/or kill them (Genesis 9:20-27, Genesis 19:1-11, Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, 1 Timothy 1:10, Romans 1:26-27, and many others). I know all this, and maybe I’m just lazy. I actually just don’t care enough if a guy kisses another guy. I literally don’t care at all. I just spend zero intellectual time worrying about how I’m supposed to hate them or how horrible it will be for them in hell. I just, well, I just enjoy being happy for people if they are happy. I like sinning like that, it’s true.

I suppose there is one more thing. Shit. Well, I guess I didn’t want to bring this up, because it is REALLY REALLY bad. I mean, I like this sin waaaaay to much, and it is just, well, just horrible of me. I’m just….. I’m just turning red with shame here, despite literally throwing words out anonymously into the internet. But I do like to sin in another way.

I know god speaks directly to the Pope and the Bishops and the Priests, and they have an authority I just can not challenge. The blasphemy for challenging the words of someone that directly speaks the words of god is just a heresey that should never be crossed. But…… well, yeah. I do that.

When a priest fucks a child, and then the bishops and the Pope himself cover it up and send the priest somewhere else to avoid liability and the priest fucks more children, I will, you know, I will actually take pleasure in calling out those people as committing crimes and I revel in the idea that they will face criminal and civil jeopardy. To be totally honest, I actually get gleeful at the idea of the Catholic Church being criminally and financially crushed out of existence.

I know this is just a horrible, sinful afront to the very words of god (Matthew 16:18), but YES!! I just LOVE to sin like this. Judging and calling out the oracles of god himself for fucking children and covering it up is my sin. It is the cross I would have to bear but I just don’t want to. I want to sin, and now I’m declaring my sin!

Who the fuck am I kidding. I have lots more sins like this.

  1. Oh my! I just don’t know what to think about you now, SA. I always thought you were an upright sinner but now? Sheesh. You’ve really torn up the rules book.

  2. “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

    When pious types trot out that hoary old line from John 8:7, I take personal pleasure in pelting them with rocks from my stockpile at hand (my aim is true).

    Now, if only they amended it to: “He who is without flaws or occasional misdemeanors, let him (or her) cast the etc..”, only then would some doubt set in, and my hand be stayed.

    1. I love that this entire line is a forgery, because it is just a demonstration of the mythical lies that were added and why.

      But if it were actual good advice, it should read something more like “let she who has had legal representation and a trial by jury of her peers face consequences prescribed by a government in sober contemplation of the needs of society, free of dogmatism or superstitions.”

  3. I am still apologising to God for having devious thoughts about women and masturbating from the year of 1966

  4. The child-predator priest is a consequence of doing without God. Sin is a cause-and-effect independence from God.

    1. Arnold, you are talking about priests. And bishops. You blasphemer!

    2. If the concept of “sin” couldn’t prevent predator priests from raping the kids, of what use is the concept of “sin”? (Besides, Christian doctrine holds that “sins” can be forgiven). The Church, and — by extension — all religious bodies who abused children, lacked a fundamental understanding that these were crimes against humanity. Crimes, not “sins”.

      I won’t go into why such crimes took place at all — that’s a complex subject, bound up with pernicious Church teachings about the body, being born into “sin”, and all that other garbage. The more damning question is: why doesn’t God care enough about child rape, among other atrocities, to actually intervene to prevent it?

      1. I don’t know why he doesn’t intervene.

  5. Is it because He doesn’t care, or because He’s simply left the building?

    I’m sure, Arnold, if you could, you would personally intervene to prevent a child from being abused, which would make you more moral than the god you worship.

  6. It must be an incredible relief to have gotten all that off of your chest! That is a LOT to hold in! But, in the end, admitting that you have a problem is the first step towards resolution.

    I don’t know about the rest of you guys but, personally, I’m proud of you SA! Good luck on your journey!
