Thanks kallisti for your posts very informative and I think your way of thinking,
I have read alot about Religions and decided that Religion is just a way for some people to try to control others, I believe in God, my God isn't a
Christian God, Jewish or anything he is MY God.
I hate the word Religion because it is man made, I have no word for what I call my beliefs because there is no word to describe my relationship with
I think we are born knowing right from wrong, something inside us tells us and you can ignore it or you can take heed of it.
The problem I have seen with Christians on this site (Not all but a good portion) is the amount of hate they have against Islam and any other Religion
they don't follow, you can read statements saying Islam is the Devil/should be wiped off the planet etc. The Muslim people who respond have not once
said Christianity is wrong nor evil they all seem peaceful people. I know this from personal experience living in a place with a high population of
Muslims and consider some of them my very good friends.
They say things about the Quran which are just lies, or take statements out of it which are really out of date and think that Muslims follow the book
to the letter (sound familiar?).
At the end of the day we are all human and have the right to believe anything we want, but we also have the right (as children) not to be brainwashed
into believing something that you can not fully understand at that age.
When I was a child I said I believed and followed Jesus because I was scared of not following him because I didnt want to go to Hell.
I think that it should not be allowed to force kids to goto church, let the kids grow into their own minds and then let them make their own choice
which faith if any to follow.
Cheers all MonkeyBless
