People go completely insane with religion
« on: June 05, 2013, 09:39:56 AM »
Is it a problem of religion or these people are already mentally insane?

I've seen people killing because of religion and doing all sorts of crazy stuff.
Religion: The belief that an all powerful God or gods created the entire universe so that we tiny humans can be happy. And we also make war about it.

both.  Stephen Law said religion is not necessarily the problem, but it exacerbates problems.

What's true is already so. Owning up to it does not make it worse.

Religion allows them to justify doing things they prob would not do otherwise.  Must do the God's work you know.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

If the answer for the impossible is "god did it";

The justification for the unthinkable is "god told me"
If xian hell really exists, the stench of the burning billions of us should be a constant, putrid reminder to the handful of heavenward xians how loving your god is.  - neopagan
