    I Hate Religion, But I Can't Hate The Sheep...

    Intellectually - I think all religions do more harm than good, and that has been established and maintained throughout human existence. I know good people who are religious. I know very smart people who are religious. But just because some religious people can be caring or wise...

    We Need Balance, Not Conviction!

    Every time I meet a religious man I walk away wondering if they have even realized that they themselves exist and have potential.  Every Christian is so obsessed with doing everything that Christ tells them to for Christ that they completely dismiss their own input and their...

    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...

    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'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...

    Any philosophy that encourages close-mindedness,

    is set up to take advantage of people's lack of independent thought.

    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...

    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 Understand the Religious.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    I was raised catholic and that's opened my eyes to how awful religion is. I got raped and was shunned by the church at 15 because I had "pre marital sex". Doesn't matter that it was rape, it happened before I was married so it's my fault. Where was God then? Why did he let...

    I am presently watching a documentary on Jesus,
