Originally posted by AThousandYoungIt goes to show you the average religious person is not so bad, what is bad are the religious leaders who should be thrice condemned to a hell of our own imagining, the insane sociopaths who call for others to don bomb filled vests, like the muslim bombing other MUSLIM's, these bottom feeders would never in a million years actually don a bomb vest themselves, feeling much too important for that, instead dupe some poor 18 yo sod to do it for them after convincing them when they die they will go to heaven and get 40 virgins. THEM I hate with all the fiber of my being.
Bad. Look at the Middle East. It's become one giant religious war of fundie Xtians and fundie Jews vs. fundie Muslims.

Personally I believe having a religion is a good thing since it keeps you on track.
Originally posted by Gaurav1Spirituality and humanity keep you on track, not religion. Although religion as a whole isn't a bad thing, you don't need to belong to a certain denomination in order to be a good person. And in lots of ways, many religions have grown to rebuke what they first sought out to teach. The perverted and extreme versions of religion are what pose a threat.
When I say it keeps u on track means it keeps you focused on doing good activities and sinless activities. The Middle Eastern problem probably contradicts this fact though their other intentions are power in particular.
