    I really hate the way many christians bring up

    their kids. This is pretty much the only reason why i actually hate christianity. I can get over the wars, massacres, witch burnings and ignorance but when it comes to raising modern kids thats a different story.

    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'm getting really freaking sick

    and tired of seeing atheists post on here saying "I hate God, because Christians shove him down our throat, and Christians are annoying freaks." Etc. And I freaking hate the Christians that say shiz like "I hate atheists, they'll go to he'll" Does it really matter..? Does...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    The only good thing to come out of religion is

    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...

    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 honestly hate religion.

    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,

    quite clearly by producers with a subtle Christian inclination. It is not presented with a critical tone and describes that crucified Nazarene's life as a matter of fact. For a start, this frustrates me as I can imagine the credulous audience this 'documentary' reaches and...

    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...

    Easter Sunday is always stressful

    for me, as I am the only one that doesn't enjoy going to church for Easter service, so I just don't. My family always invites me and encourages me to join them, but it seems hypocritical to go just because everyone else is going.

    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.

    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...

    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.
