Heck no let people participate in organized religion if they want too.I don't hate it at all.
I do not feel like you do.
Nope I don't mind it.
I do believe in God, but I don't believe in church or organized religion. None of it follows God like it really should, so yeah, I'm with ya.
Works easy. The way believers do church is not really the way the apostle Paul and his followers did it in the Bible. Church today is about politics, money, and sectarianism, what the Paul warned us not to do.
its not a religion, but a cult!
jesus, I better read my bible whilst I think of that question
Hate is a strong word..
I do not believe in god, or any religion.
I believe in honesty, and doing good for all..
My grabdfather was a southern baptist from alabama, and married to my lithuainian roman catholic grandmother..My mother converted to judaism married my father,.
I married a budhist,a nd..all religions suck,
Ok...I highly disagree with organized religion..
I guess we are on the same page.
To me it seems, that people who only help others, because they want to please their supreme being (to buy their way into paradise instead of being condemned to an eternity of suffering) are just hypocrites. People who help others, because they actually want to help others, don't need religions or gods to tell them to do so.
So all the good that supposedly comes from religion would have been possible without religion, if people were as good as they claim to be. All the bad things on the other hand were just possible, because people justified their behavior as God's will.
If it's "organized", it's not a religion, it's a cult, just out to brainwash you and get your money.
I gave up on it when the church wanted to set it up so they could take my offering directly out of my bank account. I don't freakin' think so! I must admit, I was only going in the first place because my mother in law at the time wanted me too.
Yeah sis, I'm with ya!!
I hate all religion.
"Hate" is probably too strong a word, but I'm not in favor of it
As a fellow atheist I have to say, I'm no sister of yours you're bringing down all atheists.
Let them believe what they want, as long as it doesn't impact my life I couldn't care less.
Ah, asinine assumption on my part. Then you're just a hypocrite. All religion is organized, otherwise you'd just be spiritual.
ah, an asinine assumption my part I apologize. Then you're just being ridiculous, organized religion does a lot of good int he world. It's the followers that I can't stand.
A holy book has never done any harm by itself, save for falling of a shelf because the cat knocked it over. The only harm comes when people try to get others to follow the book.
