I Hate Religion

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,441 People

    So many wars could have been prevented

    if it wasn't for religion. For example WW2 no Jews no mass genocide. No Muslins no 9/11. Imagine all the millions of lives that were lost in wars because of religion.

    I don't know about every religion out there

    so i cant say I hate all,but I know what I do hate and I hate anything that tries to control people especially by instilling fear in them and that thinks morality has more to do with being loyal to a deity and whatever book they follow instead of just treating others the way you...

    Blind Faith.

    I hate it when people say "God does everything for a reason" What was the ******* reason when he let my dad die before I got to meet him, just so I could have a memory that I knew was real. If I thought god was to be anything...It would be fair. And THAT isn't fair. All these...

    The topic of religion always makes me furious.

    You can try to convince me all you'd like, but all religion sounds like a fairytale made for children, so they can learn 'morals', because their parents are too busy to. It's hypocritical, it makes no logical sense, and it makes people simply narrow minded. I will never force...

    An 18 years old girl had lighter fluid pourn

    all over her body, down her throat, up her nose, and was set on fire. Burns covered 98% of her body, which she died from later on. So God just sat there as this went on and did what? Simply say "I'm sorry my child it'll all be over soon?" This was one of the most violent things...

    Religion is used as a weapon.

    Not all religious people are bad but it seems to bring out the worst in people. Religion seems like a justified excuse to hate people and make others feel unnecessary guilt. Religion is negative when it should be positive. The hypocritical and holier-than-thou bible thumpers are...

    This is how I've always seen it.

    To be religious you have to do two things... Part A. Try and be a nice person, who does good things and tries to avoid doing bad things, accepting that we are after all only human and occasionally bad things do happen. Part B. Believe in, and repeat to others, a story that's...

    I just don't think religion fixes problems,

    it makes problems worse. Take the crusades for example. I think life would be so much better if there were no religion. But that's just my view on the topic, everyone has the right to express their thoughts.
