I Can't Stand It When People Fight Over Religion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 4,623 People

    Why can't people respect (if not agree) what

    others believe in? Is it a crime to have a different opinion to someone else? It's just like sharing different opinions in other subjects. You don't find world wide controversy over an someones favourite colour...jeez

    There is something even worse.

    When adults hide behind children in order to promote their religious prejudice.

    Don't get me wrong, I won't judge anybody on

    they're religion, no matter how I feel about it. I just don't understand how people don't see how ridiculous they sound arguing about it. We live, we die. Get over your controversy and live while you can.

    Christianity And Hypocrisy

    I am a Christian. I have always been a loving, joyful person. Loving people in spite of their flaws and choices. Because I too have flaws. I too make choices others do not like. I do not want others to walk around looking down at me in a metaphoric way just because they have...

    it is fine to talk and

    even argue over religion, but when you declare war in the name of your divine, the you've forsaken their teachings and their word, even those who worship divines of war do not drag their god into the reason for their battles

    I think of religion thusly,

    know what you preach. if you're going to give me a lecture about how i should go to church at least know that in the ten commandments, it LITERALLY says do not house my love for it is within your hearts. another one is Jesus, seriously a cross as the symbol. again commandment's...

    I have no problem with religion!

    if believing in something helps you get through life a little better then more power to you. but when people start fighting over who's religion is better..... it's just silly. IMO its like kids fighting over who's imaginary friend is cooler.

    I've noticed that a lot of people don't believe

    in God because of all the bad things he lets happen like disease and war, but I think that's a wrong reason not to believe. I'm not religious at all, so I don't claim to know anything about the Abrahamic religions, but I always thought that God was supposed to keep order in the...

    Religion... Well Now, That's Actually Part of the Problem

    Religion is just a set of Covenants, Standards or Rules set up by a group of people who feel basically the same way, about a deity, concept, a person, place or thing.  Most every society past and present has had a religion or something like it. The...

    To Each Their Own

    Never understood how someone can claim to be

    devout in their beliefs yet behave in the opposite manner. e.g. A Christian who acts in an unChrist-like manner.

    Especially the religion/atheist thing.

    Why? A believe is just idea

    It will keep dividing people! I had once read a joke saying "A man and a god met somewhere and both exclaimed 'My Creator!'" People should understand now that they all are made up of cells, blood, muscles (ok too much of bio-talk), etc. But the main point is, nature has build us...
