*How dare she? That was my first thought after watching the video where this supposed Woman of God goes on a rant about who will get into Heaven and who won’t. That’s basically what her anti-gay ‘sermon’ was about.

I am not gay, and I’m not Christian — but let me tell you, I am still offended, and YOU, reader, should be too. It’s absolutely disgusting when people use what should be a platform of love and inclusion, to spout their own nasty views on how others choose to live their life.

Face it, some of us may be just too darn hard on ourselves, and other maybe not hard enough! I decided to dig deeper and see how we add up collectively in the whole scheme of things. And with the help of a site called Chron.com, I learned about Statistic Brain, another site which compiles data from academic sources. Continue reading
