    Everything about it. A lot of Christians agree

    about hating religion, but then they pull the whole "but i love my relationship with Jesus Christ/God!" out of their butts. like WAKE UP people! The whole god nonsense is something the church instilled in them. It's something they use to keep them coming back, or the very least...

    I Hate...

    ...Christianity!!! That's right, I HATE it! Like so many others, I too was raised to pray to that phantom, Jesus. If you have any problems, just pray, and everything will be okay--trust in Jesus. I was told that Jesus was always with me, and that he would never forsake me, said...

    I Don't Hate Religion

    I am an atheist. Religion has demonstrated itself time and time again to be intellectually dishonest, malicious, etc. But you all know this. This is why you joined. But while I share most of the same views the rest of you have on why religion is detrimental to society, I do not...

    Except For the Flying Spaghetti Monster

    For those of you who have not read Richard Dawkins, I highly recommend. You will feel better about yourself in a country where half the population thinks the world is less than 7,000 years old and Jesus will be taking them to heaven some time in the next few years. The great...

    In my life experiences,

    whenever religion has come into play, discrimination, racism and hate follows. Religion has caused so many wars, not only country wars, but friend wars too... It's quite sad.

    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.

    I strongly disagree with religion.

    It causes nothing but war and suffering, and holding on to illogical, outdated beliefs. This is a quote from a friend of mine's grandmother: "Do not try to engage a rational discussion with religious people. No way they will change their believes /confusion / delusion. You...

    I hate that religion ruined my life.

    My parents never taught me anything except to fear god and the devil. I was raised roman catholic, I was alienated as a child because of it. I was unprepared for every aspect of life, I was sexually abused by my father and when I told my mom she called me a liar and then all my...

    I'm not an atheist in any way,

    I believe whole heartedly in there being a higher power. I even believe in God, to some extent. I believe in every religion, they believe their gods but for me the one thing I don't accept, is religion. I was raised by parents who were catholic, but refused that as they grew...

    I hate all religions. there is no such thing like that. and God hasn't created it. God cannot divide between his own children. Why there have to be different religions when all give the same messege? I believe in God and but I just don't believe in the religion. There can't...

    We Need Balance, Not Conviction!

    a category. I'm spiritual but not religious. Religion is idiotic, it's brainwash, nothing different from a cult. I live for me, I believe in me, i am the only person who can control my life.

    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...

    It is a function of religion

    that it sees itself as the highest reference for morality and above all other beliefs. This means that it puts down other beliefs and is insulted when other beliefs put it down.
