I Am Not Against Religion, Just the Crimes Done In Its Name

    Why? No Really... Why....

    Why would people do that and try to justify it by religion. Blaming God for your own sins is stupid! No, it is just an excuse evil people use to feel not so evil!

    A More Peaceful World

    I have nothing against religion or the people who follow it. If it helps them with their lives, then good for them. It's just I hate what people do in the name of religion. History is full of horrific deeds done all in the name of religion. The church has made some people...

    Is It God's Fault?

    Warfare, terrorism, corruption and the sexual abuse of innocents are perpetrated by those who claim to serve God and offend our sense of justice. Why does religion seem to be at the root of so many problems? The fault lies, not with all religion or with the Bible, but with false...

    A Few Points of Contention

    I am not against religion. Honestly - I am not, if you have a religion and that religion is working for you then more power to you and don't let nobody come back on a Saturday morning trying to change your mind. That being said - there are a few bones of contention I have to pick...

    How Religious Beliefs Could Harm Generations?

    In Hinduism people believe that babies are born in a womb based on their previous Karmas. It appears as just a stupid statement for people who do not believe in religion. But look at it how deep it has harmed the society, if some one is born to a downtrodden, that person is...

    War Of Beliefs

    Beliefs are what wars are made of, or rather the dispute in different beliefs. Just as one man believes strongly in one religion another believes just as strongly against it. We cling to whatever belief we have and hold on to it till it makes us blind. Parents mold their children...

    Love And Respect

    I am Pagan, have been so for many years now. I use to be Christian and even was an Ordained Minister at one point. That seems like a different life, at a different time, so very far away... a dream, if you will. BUT, for all religions, I have a deep respect for and appreciate the...

    The Fan Club

    I like the old saying, "I don't have anything against God, it's His fan club I can't stand." That is so true about any God that anyone worships and uses as an excuse to commit murder or hurt another, for or in the name of.

    No Excuse!

    Religion's nice and all, but I dislike it when religion is used to justify terrible acts of cruelty. It never ceases to amaze me when people preach and hide behind the light to "clean" their hands of the blood they spilled. Would your God forgive you? I think not.

    Well, I Partially Agree.

    I do hate the crimes done in religion's name, but more than that, I despise the religion for influencing those mindsets. Almost every single christian "bloodline" or "ancestry" (judaism, catholicism, protestants, etc) have commited crimes against...

    I Am Very Confused About Religion
