 Ok. So I haven't written anything for a looong while and now this comes out. Sorry, but UGH! 
So, I watched the latest ep of Glee just now. And it really made me so mad. There is something called propaganda. And that's what this ep felt like for me. If Kurt would have gone and said that he believed in god at the end I would have puked and never watched that show again.

Everyone has the right to their own faith. I have nothing to say about that. Of course everyone has, it's a human right. A right that I'm willing to fight for in this country when the sweden democrats wants to forbid the building of mosques and other "un-swedish" buildings. 
But what I do not support is getting someone's faith up in your face telling you that I AM RIGHT PRAISE THE LORD!! I strongly oppose this kind of christian propaganda. I think that faith do play an important role in people's lives. It gives meaning and hope to people. But religion and christianity in particular has enslaved and murdered people for centuries, all in the name of god and that is disgusting. I have a really strange relationship to faith. Sweden is a country which inhabitants mostly are christians, but not many are really religious. It's just a set of traditions for most people, something that doesn't really mean anything to most of us in a spiritual way. And maybe that's why I react so strongly to this episode. We do not have that in Sweden. That would have been highly criticed if this was a swedish televisionshow. It surprises and angers me when a famous TV-show watched by maaaaany people tries to make you believe in something you don't believe in. Because even if Kurt didn't end up an devoted christian, the message this episode sent out was very clear. TV should not do that. And yes, I know that American television his highly  angeld and all that, especially some particular tv channels, at least from what I've read in studies and such, but to actually put this kind of thing into a tv show for young people???? Please kill me NAOW!

And I really love Glee, eventhough it's filled with old gender roles and all sorts of cheese and what not... But I LOVE it and now next ep have to be that much better so that I can go back to loving it. Or I just watch the Gaga ep over and over and that will surely bring back the looooove. XD

Ok. Need to go to bed. I might just be taking this down later when I read it again and realize my tired head english grammar is making me not making my point clearly. Which I fear I really couldn't. XD

I know what you mean. If Kurt had had some kind of ~change of heart~ at the end I would have been pretty disgusted with all of it, but I'm glad he stuck to his guns. But I really didn't like the way that it kept being okay for people to force their beliefs on him. Like having a prayer circle over his dad and bothering him to come to church. Why was it okay for them to keep doing that to him? And why was it so okay in the end?

I think I was okay with... what I interpreted to be the point - like it's bigger than religion, it's about people caring about each other, like a prayer is as much as a good wish from another person to you as it is a request directly to god (and this was parodied with the Grilled Chesus LOL) but yeah I STILL didn't like the way they kept forcing it on Kurt and that was just acceptable behavior. Really weird.

Yeah I'll just move on from this ep, like you. XD

Yes thank god Kurt stood by his believes. Yes it really annoyed me that it was so ok to poor their believes onto him. And then how Sue was all T____T about not believing in god. >___<

Yes. I understand that they wanted to say something beyond "hey! you should believe in JEESUUUUS!" but it was really badly executed.

Yes, this is not a rewatch ep for sure. XD

I haven't watched more than a couple of episodes of Glee, so I haven't watched it and I'm not exactly sure what happened, but I can relate to a lot of your rage D: I come from a country that's hiiiiighly religious and to an extent, multi-religious, so it feels sort of awkward to be thinking, "...what." at everybody XD

But when it comes to religion, I think I can safely say (from experience XD;) that Christianity is not the only one that has caused grief to a lot of people. I understand that everybody needs their dash of hope and faith to survive and ganbatte, but that doesn't necessarily give people the right to go around declaring that they're right and everybody should clearly worship their gods omg!1!! That's like... a macro-economic version of people in fandom who go around declaring that their OTP is the best and the gayest and everyone should them forever and nothing else omg!!1! Weird analogy >.>;; But you get what I mean XD

I've been fail at world politics over the past few months and I'm only now catching up with what happened in Sweden and alskkjf D: *clings to you* <3

Hiiiii, Therese, I miss you and I hope you're okay ♥ ♥ ♥

Yeees. I don't even know how it is to have all that religion around you, since Sweden is fairly non-religious and all, but I know the feeling of beaing all O__o at religious people. XD

No, of course not. Any religion has been used to torment people, all around the world. But being from a mostly christian country and with everything going on here now, with the sweden democrats proclaiming that "the muslims" are the biggest threat to Sweden today, I really have a need to point out what christianity has done to people during the ages.
Well, I'm just really a strong opposer to any form of religion and for me it's christianity in particular since I see so much hypocrisy about it around me.

Yes. It's a dark era for Sweden, and the rest of Europe too. There are blowing racist winds all over Europe and it really, really sucks.

Hiii Athu! :D I miss you too!! I need to be around more to talk to you~ ♥

Not seeing Glee but: Urgh. Whatever the context, people shouldn't force their opinion on others - isn't all this about respect? Sometimes I feel ashamed to say I'm Christian for that very same reason - I feel ashamed to be related to such people... Idk. Isn't God supposed to be about the love and compassion and respect? Why do people contradict what they preach? It just makes me kind of mad (& sad)
