    It's Just Silly To Claim That One Religion Is Right...

    I believe we can all respect each other simply as citizens of Planet Earth. It doesn't matter what you call your Higher Power, or even if you don't believe in any theism. I am simply saying if you believe that we were Given free will, then being able to choose our own lifestyle...

    On Pulpits, Saints, And Compassion

    I just spent a week with my biological family in Oklahoma. They are a religious lot and do not mind sharing their particular viewpoints at the drop at a hat. In one ear and out the other for me. There were gospel singalongs and group prayer. I joined in when I wanted and...

    It Is

    I think it is VERY disrespectful. Your God and my God are not the same even if we believe in the same God. Just as we may be friends with the same person, but each relationship is different. I cannot prove to you that my God is the 'right' God and you cannot prove to me that my...

    Seriously....

    Not only is it disrespectful it's stupid. You have your beliefs and I have mine. At the end of the day it's going to remain that way so why waste your time arguing over something that isn't going to change? If you wish to simply TALK about the differences that's fine I can do...

    I Think Fighting Over Religion Is Stupid.

    I believe that people have the right to believe what they want.you can't force someone. it's okay to talk to them about it if they are willing but if they aren't just leave them alone.

    No Point In It

    I mean... there is no way anyone can win an argument about religion. Everyone's faith is different, and they believe blindly. You can't convince them and they can't convince you. Anyone who chooses to argue religious matters is just a drama-*****.

    So I'm Disrespectful.

    Sometimes I hate it, sometimes I keep fighting about it, sometimes I just can't keep it all together and sometimes I'm just sad. A simple dillema. You are a Catholic and all members of your family are Protestant. What would you do?   I do not know if it is the right...

    We Don't Have To Get Along...

    We don't all have to get along, and we don't have to all believe in the same thing, but we all should have enough respect for each other to not fight over religion. There are two things people should never talk about, and that is religion, and politics. Because everyone is going...

    God Loves Us All As His Children

     To fight over religion is to give power to the adversary, and undermine the unconditional love our Heavenly Father has for his children regardless of status, race, colour, creed.   We are all here to experience our trials and explore free will of choice on this earth...

    I Find If Disrespectful To Even Mention Faith

    Honestly it is a matter of personal belief. No matter what it is you believe, or don't. It isn't anyone's right to judge or try to talk you one way or another. So yes I think it is outrageous to fight over, kill over. As many do. However the desire to destroy that which we...

    Inturpretation Is Everything

    While fighting is always disrespectful no matter what the topic; there is nothing wrong with bring facts forward.  Fact finding is not fighting; it is enlightenment.  If the religious choose to stay ignorant; that is there choice.  However, their followers should...

    If You Cannot Say Something Nice....

    It's one thing to discuss religion.  I'm all for talking about differing views.  But let's keep it respectful, people!Religious beliefs are highly personal things, and as such need to be treated with respect.  To fuss and fight and sling mud saying "my God is better than your...

    Peace Instead Of War - A Human Perspective

    There are a lot of people that are accepting of belief systems different than their own, but there plenty of other people who aren't so accepting. Some Muslims look down on everyone who don't follow the will of Allah, some Christians do the same for anyone who doesn't follow...
