I Can't Stand It When People Fight Over Religion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 3,151 People

    I really hate it when someone tells me

    that the religion I believe in is false. There's no point in starting an argument about it because it will go on and on until someone either gives in or is stumped! Have respect and let people believe in what they want too. Even if you don't agree because when it's our time to...

    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.

    To Each Their Own

    I have just read a story written by a Christian that has been posted in a group obviously designed by atheists. While I don't actually support this particular group I am disappointed to see that an EP member has deliberately posted in a group he is quite clearly opposed to which...

    It Doesn't Matter

    I heard the words of one priest: "It doesn't matter if someone is Christian, Catholic, Buddhist, Jehova's wittness, Hindu or other. It does matter if they are good people" And I agree with him. The most important is what kind of person we are; if we are good or evil. You can...

    I'm an atheist and think all religions are pretty amusing and ridiculous in their own ways, but I understand that everyone has their own religion and beliefs that help them sleep at night. Mine is science. But I don't know why people have to fight about it. Can't you just accept...

    The only way to win this one, is not to play to win. Set an example instead : )

    Arguing over matters of faith, and religion, simply represents an amplified version, of arguing over just about anything individual or deeply personal, which is associated with any deeply held belief. Trying to argue about such things with any intelligent person, is akin to...

    Asexuality

    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...

    This was a quote I read somewhere.

    I thought it was clever. I'm gonna try to get it right. "The Christians say the Jews and the Muslims are wrong. The Jews say the Christians and Muslims are wrong. The Muslims say the Jews and Christians are wrong. The atheists say they're all right." Haha.

    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.

    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...

    Like it have friends that are forced to go to church. In my eyes that's abuse. No? You should be able to choose your religion. That is a self journey. Your parents can't make that up for you. It's YOUR decision. Alright.

    The Path of Enlightenment

    The path of enlightenment comes from within. Proof of god cannot be found in a book or a church. It does not come from wood and stone. "God" can only be found in the choices that we make. Do not look for god in the sick and the dying - they are waiting for YOU to help...

    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!
