commented on Mars Hill Church Not Actually Volunteering with Lifelong AIDS Alliance
I had christian beliefs pushed on me when I was younger. But really, isn't being nice to the person standing next to you just supposed to be normal everyday decency and not "the word of christ?" I babysat kids (for free), worked with a mute kid in a wheelchair in fourth grade, just recently gave someone money trying to get a ferry ticket (he looked clean, not like an addict kicking crack or alcoholism) and it's just because it is/was the right thing to do! I don't need an imaginary deity or a 3000 year old book to tell me it's a good idea.
