    I don't really believe in any kind of religion myself, but i don't see the reason why other people couldn't have their own beliefs. As long as they do not try to convert me or persuade me their religion is the best i don't have any problem with that. If you want to be islamic...

    I am really so saddened (and disgusted to a

    point) that a young lady can come on here to express her belief and be bullied by others wishing to minimize and cheapen and destroy that. Her belief harms no one. The fact that so many swarmed to attack her belief rather than just express their own opposite opinion, tells me...

    Politics and Religion Don't Mix

    People should have the right to believe in whatever they want. It's not a true belief anyways if they don't choose to believe in it themselves. Making someone involuntarily adhere to a religion is counterproductive.

    let people believe what makes them happy.

    Let them be as committed to the religion as they liked to be. Some need to stop shoving religion down other peoples' throats. Some also need to stop making guidelines about what type of people can believe in the religion they are. You can't control others beliefs. So let it be.
