    If Anyone Were Interested In The Truth About Christianity

    The Guilt Ethic.....

    So much for peace, love, and understanding - what's so funny about that? (ain't that a song odie?) Burn in hell, you guilty sinner!  God (or Allah) will judge you!  whatever it is you read, believe - leave the guilt behind.  Interestingly, Christianity did...

    To all who have Netflix: I highly recommend

    Agora. It presents a much-needed alternative viewpoint to the early days of Christian vs. Jew vs. Pagan!

    I believe that God gave us free-will

    and the ability to choose. So why would God give me all of these choices just for someone to say that it's the wrong choice in Gods eyes. If I'm not hurting others or doing things that are considered evil, then don't tell me that God is going to send me to Hell.

    There Was A Time

    There was a time when religion wasn't about guilt. There was a time when religion didn't try to discredit or silence science. There was a time when religion wasn't based on some outdated book. There was a time when people didn't fight about who had the right god. This was in...

    If You Want To Be Religious, Enter Not The Gate Of Any Organised Religions.

    If you want to be religious, enter not the gate of any organised religions. They do a hundred times more evil than good, because they stop the growth of each one's individual development. Study everything, but keep your own seat firm. If you take my advice, do not put your neck...

    No Kidding...

    Gosh. God wants you to do this, be that, love that person. I think God is just fine with gay love. I think people are starting to think that God is talking through them so they obviously must be correct. I am agnostic. I honestly think religion ruins God's image.

    I'm sorry you feel guilty, but they're just sharing what they believe. You should keep an open mind about it.

    We Are Who We Are

    The recent rantings of Pope Benedict against,among others, transvestite individuals just emphasizes once again the bigoted attitude of Catholicism. No wonder that those, such as myself, who were brought up in the Roman Catholic faith have such a guilt...
