Religious discussion always seems to bring out the worst in people. This guy claims that religion is the cause of so many problems in the world both in the past and today. He talks about people who go insane and believe that their religion is what is guiding them through their life's actions. Ugh. It's a touchy topic. I'm not going to go out on a limb here. Religion, both in the past and today, has been the dispution point for many many wars and much hate and disagreement. This guy here seems to be just paying attention to the headlines. The newsmakers. The people who give religion a bad name. Seriously, for the average joe person who believes in one faith or another, religion can do a lot of good. There's a lot of psychological comfort available! Not to mention a community of people who are friendly and willing to help when you are in trouble.
What I don't understand is why people cannot give each other respect for their own decisions. For me, actions speak FAR louder than the label they bear. I don't care what faith you are in. If you can't give other people respect for what they believe, then you need to chill out and realize that faith should really be a personal choice. Sure, you can talk to other people about your faith, and if someone shows an interest, you can introduce them to it. But there isn't a "right" way to believe. I'm sorry folks, but that's where its at.
But then, maybe I'm just crazy. Heraldk
