First, if your religion has ever caused any large wars you can skip the rest of the topic, your religion sucks. Looking at you, catholicism and Islam ( branches within)

If your religion teaches of a loving and caring Christ and God, but condemns all to hell if they don't identify with that religion, or claim to be the only path to heaven, deeming a Gods love as not enough - your religion sucks.

If you discriminate based on some vague interpretation of some words in a book, your religion sucks.

If fear of punishment is why the people within comply to any of the rules, or whatever else - your religion sucks.


Now you might think I'm being overly critical and painting with a very broad brush but this isn't the case. I do think there's great religious people out there. If your religion promotes peace, love, acceptance, tolerance, and does not assume all within are going to heaven and all not within to hell, if any religion emulates the love they believe their God to have - your religion is just fine.

Cheers fellow members

What about does your non religion suck
Does your non religion say we are just animals and holds no value to human life
Does your non religion have no moral scale other than the standard you arrive at

Did your non religion inspire Stalin Mao or pol pot et al
Of course there are nice non religions people out there, those who don't want to bicker and cause animosity, then their are others

Get ready for the religious lot to start crying and throwing accusations. Even though mostreligions are supposed to be about respect and love and peace, they'll still do it.

Oh I realize non-secular and atheist people killed the most people in history. I didn't say non religious people were great, I just felt like ranting about this side of the coin today

Definitely. 11 hours of sleep, woke up still sick, with a new cold sore, and a headache. Haha, oh well. I'll rant on!

If you make a judgmental post of other people's religions, your criticism sucks.

That's debatable...... but even if it's true, that's just an excuse for those who claim the moral high ground to say..."You guys do it too. Neener neener."

People should believe what works for them. I get along fine without religion, but I don't begrudge others their beliefs. Life is hard enough without all of us picking on each other on the meaning of life when no one else can answer that question for someone else. Everyone has different life experience which explains the diversity of belief.

Unlike some religions, I don't believe you to be a worse person, or that you need to go to hell for disagreeing with me

I think the point is Klass, people are evil, it's not just some and others

Just saddens me to see atheists claiming the moral high ground for their faith hen they have displayed evil on a larger scale

I think you have proved it a childish argument

I kind of wonder why threads like this, rather than threads that question,mind a reason, ask why
Some people act like trump and Hillary here

Relgions do suck.

If you do your research and apply what you learn, Its all about a relationship with your Creator. Love will follow

My religion is not one. It's just Discordianism and I'm a lunatic.



Hail Eris (or don't)

I recently started going to church again. I'll take a stab:

Doesn't apply to mine.



If your religion teaches of a loving and caring Christ and God...

It does.



...but condemns all to hell if they don't identify with that religion, or claim to be the only path to heaven, deeming a Gods love as not enough - your religion sucks.

It doesn't.



If you discriminate based on some vague interpretation of some words in a book, your religion sucks.

Nope.


If fear of punishment is why the people within comply to any of the rules, or whatever else - your religion sucks.

And again. No.


Some of you may be wondering what religion I'm talking about.

Well keep wondering. The only thing revealing that will do is open myself up to the most vile and vicious hatred, which is just not on my itinerary today. It has become nigh impossible to respectfully discuss religion here (and most other places, internet or not) anymore.

How much does my religion suck? By your own criteria it doesn't.

But you still wouldn't have any respect for it. What's that Jesus said about casting pearls before swine?

Yeah, that.

There's no religion, or lack thereof, that hasn't horribly tortured or killed lots of people. People just like to pretend that their chosen vice is innocent and force all the blame onto their perceived enemy.

Anything done by humans is bound to be rife with hypocrisy and bias.

Ha. Unless they're muslim... then they're all suspect.

Oh, I respect religious of all kinds. Even satanism used to be somewhat honorable until some half-wits took over and deemed themselves the prophets of the new type.

Sometimes it's the people within. Muslim is a very peaceful and loving religion - but some of modern days worst crimes against humanity are also committed by them.

Therefore, the Muslim religion sucks. Not all within, suck, though. And I respect you even if you are a Muslim, as I'm not blind. I know there are peaceful and loving Christians, Muslims, and other types of religions.
