you can preach wisdom until you’re blue in the face, but you can’t stop young folks from fucking themselves up. c’est la vie
I guess that’s true.
They need to make their own experiences, but I hope they will see that I got married by 33, mr Apia was 33 too, and it was a good age. Do as I did.

Thus beginning the long divide between Catholics and Protestants.

I'm not saying Protestant churches can't be fucked up too. I just know the entire premise of Catholicism is way more what you're talking about (eternal damnation, hatred of gays, etc.). That's why it's called "Catholic Guilt", and not "Christian Guilt".

Evangelical christians, Catholics, Southern Baptists, are among the worst examples of Christianity. Lutheran Protestant, (or Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism) are generally more accepting and look at the good in Christianity instead of how to use the Bible as a weapon.

I hate having to defend organized religion. But it's like the South Park episode where the different organizations of Science fight over who's science is better. People will always find ways to divide themselves and argue over dumb differences (skin color, flag color, how to say "Hello", whatever).

To channel my inner Ted Alexandro, try to figure out how to find commonality with people, instead of condemning them instantly for hearing something like they might talk to a pastor occasionally.
I think you are meaning well, but it comes across a bit condescending.
Of course I know Luther and the history behind it.
Protestant churches here are better 100%. They have woman priests and don’t hate gay people as it seems. The priests are allowed to get married.
Mr Apia was raised Protestant.
But I was raised in Poland with only the Catholic Church. Everyone was catholic. I didn’t even know there were something else.

False equivalence - KATG is unlikely to result in suffering, death, & destroyed families.

Depends where you live.

"The majority (52%) of Quakers live in Africa and many there do not support homosexual relationships."
