when you love something, it doesn't matter how much time, how many sleepless nights, or how much pain goes into it. because if you're willing, you're bound to make something out of it.
that's just the way life goes...
Being an atheist is ok. Being an atheist and shaming religion and spirituality as silly or not real is not ok.
Being a Christian is ok. Being a homophobic, misogynistic, racist, or otherwise hateful person in the name of Christianity is not ok. Being a reindeer is ok. Bullying and excluding another reindeer because he has a shiny red nose is not ok.
