    One Dysfunctional Church

    I grew up in a church that was, to put it mildly, dysfunctional.  It was started in the 1700's, and in the 1800's one faction of the church split off from the main body over some vague point of doctrine.  You would expect that the "new" congregation would go...

    The Fighting Isn't About Religion

    Is anyone really surprised that places like the US which champion rugged individualism and winner-takes-all capitalism fight over religion? The US has the worst social problems by far of any country in the developed world with the highest rates of homicide, abortion, STDs...

    I Guess I Don't Understand

     It's true I find it annoying when people fight over religion but I don't really understand why it usually escalates from discussion to an argument in the first place. My brother talks to me about it sometimes. He's the only member of my family who's religious and he's told...

    I don't understand why people can't expect

    that other people have the right to think different the them. I'm Roman Catholic (by family. I'm not religious) but I respect and am curious about all other religions. No one has the right to tell someone else that they're beliefs are wrong or bad. All religions deserve respect

    Undesirable

    Killing people over not picking your religion and hurting with words someone not making choices your religion chooses does not make your religion look desirable in joining.

    Just Awful!

    This is the most horrible fights I've even seen. Even wars are started over it. And it's just odd and very unnecessary! It seems like all of that effort and energy could be spent elsewhere. On something more productive. :-/ I am Pagan, that's true. But I use to be Christian...

    It's just really pointless.

    Your religion is such a personal thing to you and you are going to follow the one you think will most benefit you and fit into your life. You are not going to convert someone who isn't looking for exactly what your religion is offering in their life. Telling someone their...

    My God

    "My God is better than your God" "Nu-uh!" "Nuh-huh!" "Is not!" "Is too!"   Wouldn't it be nice if this was the extent of "fights" over religion?

    Every religion has the one true god,

    but they can't decide which has that one true god. Wars have been fought over who has the one true god. You don't see wars fought by those who don't know or don't care; like the humanists; spiritualists; agnostics or atheists.

    Let people choose what they want to believe in!

    Religion doesn't make a person! Plus most people only follow the parts of their religion that benefit them at specific moments or ignore them for the same reason! There is no point in fighting when the people fighting are usually hypocrites!
