    Faith

    I was raised strictly Catholic.  One of Eight kids.  Catholic school from 1st grade through high school.  Went to church most days before school and every Sunday.  My mom was Catholic, not my dad.  But he was the one who made sure we got up and made it to...

    I took my little girl to the playground.

    She made friends with a group of children about her age. I watched as my daughter laughed, and talked, and played, and skipped, and enjoyed the thrills of the playground as a child should. And then I watched as 2 other children ganged up on her. "Do you go to church?" "If you...

    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...

    Tbh, when I see these posts against these

    certain religions I just sit back and wonder and the closest idea I can compare it to is, Islam, or Muslims. How they kill for 'Allah' or they yell that every-time in one of these videos. Perhaps when they behead people and shoot innocents. How they attacked te states, and...

    I Am Very Confused About Religion

    I was born into the Catholic Faith and brought up and moulded by it and I loved it. Without it I don't know how I would have survived the life my family led. I didn't have the material advantages of my peers nor the relative normality of their lives but probably because of this...

    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...

    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...

    I believe in God, but I decided to basically

    reject organized religion of any form. I used to be a pagan and worshiped nature for a time. I think there is some truth to most religions ( save for Satanism) but I have no respect for people, regardless or race/religion, etc who kill or destroy, for any reason, In God's...

    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 thing that really irks me about these types

    A Few Points of Contention

    My God never told me to criticize,

    torture, or murder anyone. Actually, he told me that he would not accept me and he would send me to an eternity of Hell and fire for it because a Sin is a Sin is a Sin .

    After hearing about this new terrorist group

    called ISIS, I've been hearing the song "In the Name of God" by the Swedish heavy metal band Sabaton playing in my head. The song itself talks about the actions of the many terrorist groups that claim that what they do is in God's name, told from the point of view of someone...

    Every war was pretty much

    for religion or at least some sort of different way of seeing the world. You think how much money each country would have if there were no wars at all... Ever. Instead of taking land we could be flying off into the stars but nope, no attention is there atall sadly.

    From the Inquisition to the current beheadings

    by ISIS, religion has been used as an excuse to commit atrocities for centuries. I believe it's truly sad and pathetic when something as beautiful as faith is degraded by using it as an excuse to commit acts that that very faith says is wrong. Religion can be a great thing when...

    I can see why Christianity has done a lot of

    crimes... Their god is a master of killing the in innocent and then telling his mindless zombies that it's a sin to kill so they kill in his name. Them they get kind of whimpy and them just blog about you going to hell.

    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.

    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.

    For as long as there has been a 'one true GOD'

    there has been killing in his name. This is one reason why I am a non believer. And I have found out myself that those that profess to be true Catholics (for example only) are the least godly people of them all. I make no bones about the fact I do not believe and I will...

    How Religious Beliefs Could Harm Generations?

    It's just an observation,

    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!
