Religion is a *****

by Skeleton100

Box of terror and fear and double-standards and self-loathing and discrimination and thumping and rejection

According to a certain book of love, you can own slaves, capture hot women and make them your wives (a.k.a rape them and call it marriage), force your wife to swallow dust to ensure fidelity (if she fails, you can kill her), tear open pregnant women’s stomachs if they don’t agree with you, burn to death a sinful man’s property (a.k.a his children)… there’s a few others.

I’m not discriminating against Christianity – there’s nothing wrong with it, nowadays. Many Christians today are pretty kind. But look at that friggin’ source content. Throughout ages people burned children for witchcraft (they were left-handed, you know).

Vatican City has a few child skeletons in its closet.

Among all this, it’s an “abomination” to love someone of your own gender.

Fuck you religion, used to justify evil. It’s sad, because there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with you. But people distort you for their own sad purposes….

It’s barbaric and makes me sick. I have no problem with spirituality. I’m spiritual myself, now that I consider it. But angry organized religion is the root of all evil. Look around you. Middle Eastern terror.

A bunch of delirious tribes each trying to define a god’s likes and dislikes, screaming at other groups that they’ll burn eternally if they don’t convert to their own tribe.

Fuck you, religion. If Satan’s going to blind me with false notions of good-intention and love for everyone (or at least, love for whoever respects others), then well – I’m sorry, God. I apologize. Just trying to do the right thing, here. So damn confused.

I felt the same way. I didn’t understand how God can let these things happen – if He was so Almighty, why is there so much agony in the world. I’m not trying to evangelise or anything, but I feel compelled to stand up for what I believe in.

It’s confusing, to understand how outrageous laws and tradition in the Old Testament. There were many rules to follow, and it was very easy to die if you didn’t please God. But see the beauty of love in the New Testament. Imagine giving up your only child ( or a pet that you love so very much) for the sake of others. We no longer live under a tight regime of ridiculous laws. We live under grace and love.

To be honest, religion keeps me sane and it tells me what to do. I rely on religion a lot. It stops me from bad desires (aka killing and torture). We all have our stands. It’s a tough and touchy subject for some. Pray for those in the war, and love everyone. Love is a strong thing yknow?

Imagine if everyone could love one another, without sadness and pain. People on this site wouldn’t even come here anymore, if people just loved a little more.

(I get carried away sometimes. Sorry !)

absolutely the way i see it too. Plus, if any God was so powerful why would that God need people to kill others in his name? Could not God just do all the killing at let all the believers just live fat and happy lives?

Thanks for responding. My rant was pretty angry, sorry about that. I’ve calmed down now. Religion is fine – it’s just that people distort it and abuse it and turn it into something insane. Part of the reason I’ve been hesitant about Christianity, even though most Christians I meet today are pretty kind. Gentle.

I’d love to follow a God who wants love and peace in the world. Again, I’m spiritual. You’re right, the New Testament focuses on love and acceptance. It’s very soothing to read, actually.

The point of my rant – I will not worship humanity. Or religion. Humans are flawed creatures who sometimes resort to violence out of fear. I love humans – I think we all are fundamentally curious and accepting – but, ugh, we just become corrupted, later on.

Religion was only formed as a way to control and brainwash the masses and conditioning them to their way of thinking. The leaders all know their ain’t no God why all the priests liked to rape and sodimise the little children at night and have many wives because they know there ain’t going to be no punishment from GOD because f****** GOD don’t even exist!!!
