And why should my life be affected by something like your beliefs
Religion is against scientists and doctors trying to find a cure for my daughters condition
Religion is against my neighbors being able to legally commit to each other because they both have penis's
Religion has no right to tell me what to do
I have a set of morals I try to follow as well, probably not far from your own. But religion pays no part in that
Religion has no part to play in
Wow - generalize much??
There are so many anti-religious people on this board that really have no clue what religion is. It's pretty closed minded, really. Sure - there are SOME religions that do some of the things you say, but there are plenty of others that do not.
well i know what religion is. and i knowwhats been done in its and Gods name. and i include allah and every other diety you can name. religion just doesnt make any sense to me. i do understand the place it has in society... in all societies. but still i cant make any sense out of it. ive even asked some people here questions hoping to make sense of their beliefs but ive been ignored. i am very open minded. just cause i dont believe in God/s and just cause religion doesnt make any sense to me and never has, doesnt mean im close minded or small minded(if there is a difference between those two things). what i see as close minded is when someone ignores someones desire for information in hopes they can maybe, just maybe understand that someones beliefs a little better.
