Today, I was riding in a carpool when we passed a church that has a shady reputation. I said "man, all those people are being brainwashed, it's a cult". The lady sitting in the back seat behind me says "I'm a member of that church". OOPS. Silence. FML
Religion... It's a concept. It's a way of thinking.
So what if it's wrong? No harm done, right?
Wrong. Many wars have started through organized religion. Religion, however, isn't necessarily a bad thing.
What if people just learned to accept each other's opinions?
Perhaps the human race is too stubborn to learn that as a whole.
I'm a Christian and I stand by my beliefs. No, I'm not a homophobe. So many Christians are though. But not just Christians are homophobes. Muslims and Jews can be. Buddhists can be. Athiests can be! It doesn't matter what god you believe in, or if you don't even believe in a God. We are all PEOPLE.
I'm tired of the homophobic stereotype. I'm tired of the repression of religious or non-religious face day from day.
Why argue about it? Why not just respect each other's opinions, put the past behind us, and move on.
We are one people, united in many things, from our ability to think, to love, to create, to feel. Why does religion matter? Can you not look at your neighbor and see another human being, whether his religious beliefs are the same as yours or not?
I don't care what anyone believes. I know what I do, and that's all that matters. I respect the beliefs of others and will not shove my beliefs down their throats. I believe that is what all of mankind needs to do. This world would be filled with a lot less death that way.
Speak your mind, but please try and be respectful.
