What's with religion anyhow?

I really don't want to be inundated with religious messages (which are often a bit hateful and always presumptuous ) - but what is this religion thing? If I were the only person who claimed to see the world entirely through a viewpoint based on believing in somone born from a virgin, who died and came to life again and if I believe in stories of him I'll go to heaven after I die... I'd be sent for counselling or good medication. If a lot of people believe that - well, that's just fine.

Or perhaps I believe that if I die while converting or killing non-believers in my faith... well, I'll immediately go to a lovely garden and be surrounded by loving virgins. Nice.

Okay... I do honestly respect everyone's right to believe what he or she chooses to. That doesn't mean I need to respect or give validity to the belief itself. And for God's sake (if He or She is listening)... please help everyone get over needing to see a particular belief as the 'only way'. What a burden for all of us. Really.

That's my rant for tonight.

Beautiful rant. I'll keep checking back.
 
Very well said.
Sometimes I feel like the only person for miles with views like this.
 
I share that sentiment. Thanks for coming by my blog - I would like to add you to my list of blogs I enjoy.

Cheers

Thank you for the wonderful comment in my blog.

I too share your viewpoint about the segregation between ppl as a result of their religion.

I happen to be Wiccan, I love this religion because we encourage our followers to draw influence from a variety of religion. Wicca preaches that no one way of worship is correct. :)
 
there are some that segregize others do not...fanatics are everywhere and sometimes those who judge from the outside segregate more than believers...
