A few minutes ago I was in a thread about Islamaphobia where I posted this.
You had me up to the point where you said "Firstly in the name of ALLAH". You probably had some very insightful things and the video, if it was
there, was probably one of the best ever made. Unfortunately, I've had Jesus and God thrown at me enough throughout my life that I automatically stop
listening when someone starts talking about him/her/it. Stop talking in the name of your God and start talking for yourself without shoving your
religion down our throats.
It really got me thinking.....
I used to go to church when I was a kid. Really, the grandparents used to take me and I was just happy to be around them so I went wih it. Now, I'm
30 and deeply anti-religous.
I think that religion has been shoved down my throat so much while growing up that I dispise it. People act like they are better than you because of
the church they attend. You give the church money and then see the pastor driving away in his Benz. Hell, a few years ago I moved into a small village
and everytime I tried to talk to a neighbor or even the lady at the trash drop off place all they could ask was "which church do you go to?" Really?
Is a person defined by what church they attend? Of course when I told them that I hadn't attended chuch in a while and then told them, very
respectfully, that I wouldn't be attending theirs, their whole demeanor changed towards me. I believe that there are some very good morals contained
in the Bible, but not much else. Just because someone doesn't share your views on religion doesn't make them less of a person than you.
Then you get the people that say, "well our church is different". No...... No it isn't. Its the exact same as every other church.
Then, you have some religious people who think they represent the one ond only religion and all others are insane. These people are the worst in my
book. The world would be better off without them. If your religion says that, because I don't subscribe to it, then you are better than me, then you
are my enemy. Plain and simple. It could be the 'golden nugget' of all religions and it wouldn't get passed first base with me. I believe in
letting everyone live their lives how they see fit. Nothing more, nothing less.
And for anyone who asks why I visit the religion forum while being anti-religuous.... It,s because there is a lot of prophecy containied within that,
I'm sure, some nutjob would love to fulfill. That and its funny/ironic to watch hypocrites in action.
Mods: On second thought maybe this belongs in RANT. Please move accordingly.
