How many times do we have to remind people that it’s 2017? That times change and views evolve? That humans have always, always evolved with how they think and view different things?
It’s coming to a point now where using religion as a way to skip over your clearly archaic and disgusting views is just a way to open people up to ridicule. It’s actually really embarrassing when I see people confidently on television or on the internet making themselves look like complete fools by saying that something is wrong or can’t be done because it’s in their belief.
Well you know, it’s in my belief that you shouldn’t leave your house or bother speaking to people with a bit of education. Sorry, but that’s my personal belief, and you need to respect that.
I myself am not religious. I believe in nothing and increasingly this is the case with a lot of people. It’s fairly normal for someone to not be religious nowadays because we have more understanding of how the world works and why we might actually be here.
In my opinion and what i’ve learnt in the short time i’ve been on this planet is that life is all about experience and leaving a legacy for the next generation. It’s not about being as horrible and judgmental and destructive as you can in the time you inhabit this strange world. That being said though, make no mistake that I completely understand religious people.
They want to know that there is more and be comforted in something beyond what is fully understood, beyond science and understanding. Religion, to me, is about being a better version of you. It’s being open to learning new profound things and thinking about people beyond yourself. So to me it’s very conflicting when you see religious nuts going around spouting hatred in the name of religion. That’s literally the opposite of what modern religion is about.
NO, you can’t use scripture written thousands of years ago to support your claims to be bias about people, because once again, we live in the modern world where we don’t DIE IF WE A COLD.
We need to start separating ideas of church from personal bias. If you have those beliefs, maybe instead of being proud to hide behind your so called loving religions, you should work on yourself first and foremost.
Work on being a better person who doesn’t have these hurtful ideologies that could potentially upset other people. Again, I'm not a religious person but in no way does that mean I have no morals. I have a lot more morals than a lot of religious people I see nowadays.
What happened to just praising you God in silence. Why does it seem like these religious groups are cultish now? Well, it’s because they kind of are. Modern religion has never been more cult like. because after all, if you gather in a group with extreme ideas that’s exactly what you can be rightfully labelled as, a cult.
