Outlooking over Religion by endler Outlooking over Religion by endler
By most of my anti-religious stamps one would believe that I hate Christianity to a T and hate everyone within it; and I could understand why with how I act towards it a lot.

Honestly though...there is no religion I can say that I hate, and definitely none where I can say I hate every single person within it. There are definitely people that I...dislike, and that word was used because there are two particular groups of people...and honestly, the second one I feel more bad for than I feel any contempt for.

And here they are:

The first group are the people who use their religion to harm others, take what has been said out of context, and they fucking know that they're doing it all while under the fake pretense of 'I'M TRYING TO HELP PEOPLE'...or, hell, most of them don't want to try to aid they just go with 'THIS PARTICULAR GOD SAID I HAVE TO DO IT'.
The WBC, if they truly are meaning what they're doing, would be a perfect example of the sort of person I'm talking about. There are also plenty of folks on DA that could possibly go under this category, but I won't bother pointing them out, obviously.,,and it's these people who form the second group.

The second are the people who have been raised from birth with their parents and adults grounding into their minds that they must treat particular people like they're abominations from hell and have to 'save them' for being them, or people who for some reason or another fell into a religion and turned out the same way, actually truly believing that they're doing good and that they must do this.

Really...these people are too saddening at the end of the day to even really dislike that much, even if they are abusing their freedom of religion to...well, abuse others who don't agree with them/have something on them that their religion disagrees with.

And that's it. Even though many religions do have things that I'm 'eeeeeh' about, don't hate them; don't hate the people either, just really dislike those who use it in this sort of manner.

A certain person on this site hates me for being religious, even calling me "stupid" for being Christian.
Religion = intelligence?

i've been raised with a southern baptist upbringing all my life in a VERY old-school church (we don't even do contemporary christian music in our worship services it's awful) and i am so glad that i got out of that before i got sucked in. one of my irl friends is a rarity among southern baptists--she 100% supports lgbt+ things because she is queer herself. when i asked her how she supports that stuff when the bible says it's wrong she answered with "the bible was written a long time ago and the Old Testament (first part of the bible and also the place it says homosexuality is wrong) wasn't made for this day and age. i know God didn't make a mistake when he made me."

if you're gonna be a christian be like that please.

You have an awesome friend. Personally, I am not religious or atheist (I like to learn about all beliefs!), so I usually don't get that "into" this type of thing. I am bi, and I know that it was hard to tell my friends/family, so your friend did a very brave thing. Whatever God/gods/Deity/evolution/whatever made the human race nobody was a "mistake"! EVERYTHING IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!! Huggle! Heart

I'm Christian, and I can see why people hate us so much - because of the obnoxious behavior of many of its followers (ESPECIALLY in America). We're allowed to disagree with beliefs on our own religion. I don't agree with the Catholic Church's position on homosexuality, and yet I'm still a proud Catholic.

There is multiple things I can say about that, but I'll say two...

1. Most Catholis honor the Pope, a man who says he has more power than angel, there is nothing or anything holy about that bastard. The pope is nothing but a stance built on lies. Based on those pagan and wicca's who you say claim "peace". So it's no surprise someone would say they are going to hell....BUT TO SAY ALL, that's bull.

2. Christian's know they ain't suppose to be saying who goes to where when atleast 90% of Christians are following the wrong path and are blinded.

Yes, but if you look into the past of all those things, they used to sacrifice children, they invented holidays like Xmas,Valentines Day, all oof those things have a grim history that leads back to wiccans/pagans.

speaking as a Christian (but i ain't overly religious)

I understand why most people hate religion, or religious people

but I don't understand why the ones who are religious how or why they seem to be using it harmfully

& the irreligious people have to see every religious person like they all think & act the same way


a bit of a complex situation going on, I know that much


I don't mean any disrespect to anyone though

really? i may not know much about this "4000000 year old book" you speak of but saying it tells them to hate doesn't seem any likely as atheism telling people to love.

everything has their down sides, i find it's mostly the people in general who are at fault, doesn't matter what race or religion one is or what their opinions are.

Youīre right. I find it very hard to disconnect religion from the people who use it for bad things, since religion is what made them believe they were doing the right thing. But you canīt blame religion for the people who donīt think. Most people today think about religions and form their own opinions, but there are still some who refuse to think for themselves... difficult topic, I guess you just have to find an answer you feel comfortable with. :s

I dislike people who use Christianity for harm to, and I'm a Christian. Many people have used religion to harm other Christians during the Protestant Reformation and that is one of the reasons that I don't like Catholics.

I wish this was the only reason..

The kind of offensive comments and insults atheists get a lot just hurt me so bad I want to hit someone.. I'm atheist, but I don't worship Satan, I am not a cruel bitch, I do not worship Hitler.. (insert other things here)

But that's how people think of atheists.
