I'm a Christian and I know God exists and is with me. I have no problem with people with other religions because it is their choice and I have no right to change it. I got a ton of friends who are Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim. I even had a goofy ass Mormon friend of mine I knew real well. Hating on a religion is similar to racism and I ain't cool with no kind of racism.

And I respect all religions even tho I may disagree with some of their ideas beliefs etc. I do because just like the Bible says "Treat Others the way you want to be treated" and if I got people bashing Jesus and mocking him I wouldn't like it so I'm not gonna go and make fun of Muhammad, Buddha etc. Because those kind of things people get very emotional over, almost like if you call someone's kid ugly or somethin, they'll lose it and start fightin with you.

Religon is an intrestin topic
I'm a Sikh, and i believe in God....many times God has answered my prayers, but many times he hasn't, i do believe he is with me and protecting me from u fagz(lol jk)
All religons basically teach to live in peace etc, but ppl start bitchin and sayin hteir religon is da best and others are nothing compared to it ...
wtf is that supposed to mean? They claim to be followers of their religon but they neglect that part which teaches about peace and to respect each other...
I still dont get it, why?

I personally am not religeous at all.  My dad was raised as a Catholic.  But decided to drop religion when he was like 20.  He raised me to be athiest.  I don't know what it's like to be religios so I don't know if i'd like it.

I ask myself these question often...

why did my mom died when i was 17 and not when i was 37???

why did lil" j die at 18 and not live too see 98???

Why do bad things happen to good people???

these are all good question to ask yourself when you are questioning if there is a lord... or higher power....

but the real question that brings faith into my heart is....

Why do bird fly and who thought of giving them wing and feathers???

why does the earth spin giving us gravity to stay put???

why does the sun shine over us???

why are there trees that give us air.. rain to give us water...
why can i see the things around me...
thats what gives me my faith in god... not the negative question.. but the one no one can really really answer

i am a catholic too

Ima catholic, my belief in God changes almost day by day, religion can cause so much pain, violence and destruction, but it can also be comforting and reassuring. Im from an irish family so i only go to church to please my Nan, because without her my life has little meaning...

I believe in all the prophets.  All prophets being as human as you or I, and equal under God.  Allah, the Supreme Being, The Creator of All.  All that is in the World belongs to and was created by Allah.  All of my shortcomings can be attributed to my own immortality and weakness, and all good that I have contributed to the Earth shall be attributed to Allah, (God).

I disagree... People are what cause pain and hard ache.. what ever you believe should not ever cause you pain .... for the lord is with you... and loves you... a loving god would never hurt any of jos followers... you don't have to be catholic either.... any religion is good... give you peace and love... if you feel that religion cuase you pain and heart ache... then you must not really believe in what you worshipping

My religion has never caused me any pain, my religion helped me through a long and hard 3 years in prison.

But what your saying is entirely true, people cause pain, not religion, but religion can be the reason people inflict pain on others, which i turn causes pain, violence and destruction.

Me...personally...as short as I can put it....I am suppose to be a christian but consider myself part of no religion and I think religion causes more problems than it solves...I mean look at a lot of previous wars....a lot have been over religion and people dying becos of their religion...that ain't right.

Alright. I have an opinion on religion that I really doubt anyone thinks. So here goes:




Religion is evil. Organized Religion was something set up 100s, even 1000s of years ago to control society. The fear of eternal damnation is a frightining thought. Many people followed it, and still do to this day, fearing that their soul will not rest in Heaven. If you listen to Ras Kass's Nature of The Threat he makes some intresting points about the flaws in Christianity(although i think over half of it is probably bullshit). Judism and Christianity were the start of a belief in one God, making them the basis for most other religions with that belief(hence the reasoning behind most religions having the same structure-just a few differences).


Now, don't thuink I'm some God hating radical, because I believe in God. God made this planet. He made this universe. Wether or not he made Adam and Eve, or wether evolution is what took place, God is responsible for our creation. It's just I doubt he'd want us to deprive ourselves from simple pleasures, and want us to pray and worship him.


Religion has caused so much death, hatred, and misunderstanding. From the Puritans and the Salem Witch trails, to much of the middle east situation, to the fighting in England so long ago that killed many kings and people. People are brutally killed in the name of religion every day.


Also, many people misunderstand religion, twisting it and using it to justify their wrongs.

Hitler belived he was doing God's work.
Same with the KKK. They believe they represent Christianity.
Hell, the terrorists that attacked us believe they are representing their religion.



Even in lesser ways, religion is warped. There's this christian breakfast club at my school. Me and my friend(who happens to be a goth) went there. I was hugged, and they were friendly, and opened up to me. They ignored my friend. Even called him satanic. Evil. Worthless. And, he's more religious than I. He's a devout Christian. He just doesn't get sucked up into the bullshit. He'd get into heaven 5 times quicker than I would. But they shun him.




Religion is evil. It's been thrown around more than a sluts panties.

Your post should have been "the Christian Religion is evil" because that seems to be the only religion you are familiar with.

Try to prove your case against Islam or even Buddism the way you did against Christianity, and then I'll give you respect.

I come from a mix religious family. My dad is a Christian but he ain't religious whereas my mom is  Buddhist and she is quite religious. I don't have a specific religion but I try to study all of the religions. I have read some of the Qu'ran and the Bible plus I have been to the Buddhist temple many times. All I know is that I believe in God. I pray all the time and some of them get answered. I definitely believe in God because it seems that there are signs everywhere that lead me into the right direction. I don't know if any of you will understand what I'm talking about but I guess you would have to witness it.

Your post should have been "the Christian Religion is evil" because that seems to be the only religion you are familiar with.

Try to prove your case against Islam or even Buddism the way you did against Christianity, and then I'll give you respect.



Christianity is the religion I am most familiar with, and therefore it's easier to bring up that one.


All the religious clashes is my arguement for the others. Arguments, fights, even wars are started in the name of religion/due to religious differences.


I wish to learn more about other religions. What are some good books to get to enlighten me on others.
