    Here's The Truth

    Season 1 / Episode 5

    Starlight: Every single word that I say up here, I'm reading from a script. I didn't write any of these words. I don't even know if I believe in them. I mean I believe in God. I love God so much but... honestly, it's just how godd*mn certain everyone is around here. I mean, tickets start at what, 170 bucks, so that these people can tell you how to get to heaven? How do they know? How does anybody know? When the bible was written, life expectancy was 30 years old. I mean, I'm not so sure you're supposed to take it literally. It also says that it's a sin to eat shrimp. What if you're gay or if you're Gandhi, you're going to hell? I mean... And if you have sex before marriage, that's, that's not immoral, that's human. What's immoral is the guy who shoved his d*ck in my face... Here's the truth. Anyone who tells you they know the answers is lying and I know I'm supposed to be this hero-idol-symbol-whatever but I don't know what the hell I'm doing. I'm just as scared and confused as the rest of you. I'm done pretending and I'm done taking anymore sh*t. Thank you.
