Why Is Being Non Religious Such A Bad Thing.. When Every Day I'm Forced To Be?

Why Is Being Non Religious Such A Bad Thing.. When Every Day I'm Forced To Be?

I think the whole religious crap is really stupid because its against gays. And I don't give a crap who you are that isn't right! they should be able to love just as everyone else can! And That I always get comments and people tell me i'm going to hell.. that isn't right either. Has anyone actually seen "god" I THINK NOT. when no one believes in elves or fairies or whatever just because they're not real.. it's the same thing with god. i'm very skeptical. and if I'm going to be pushed into a religion i'd rather rot in hell... Anyone agree?

Ok, so, first off, not all religions do that. You're only talking about the radical Christians. Still though, you should respect their opinion. Don't hate on them and then expect them to treat you any better. Religion is not something that is bad within itself, what becomes bad is how people use it. Don't dismiss all religion based off a few radicals. I'm not a very religious person either but I respect all opinions. I choose to be a combination of Buddhist and Christian. I think, See More▼

I found this a little offensive but just because u don't think god is real doesn't mean you are going to hell! that would be cruel don't you think. but i also hate how they are anti LGBT. its always bothered me. but i am not going to force my religion on you. plus if u don't think god is real you still are a good person
Veiled
Wrong. All people who don't believe in God WILL go to hell. It might be cruel, but what the bible says, goes. Plus, you commented like ALL Christian people are ALL supposed to be anti LGBT. It bothers you because, obviously, you're ignorant and clearly didn't think to NOT bunch us all up together. You state that you are religious, but I doubt you're Christian... See More▼

Yeah, my life kinda gets mixed up between the different branches of christianity. I was baptised as a lutheran but my dad is catholic so I did grow up with both bibles.

@Marvele I'm evangelic, maybe you're catholic? Though the only difference between the two bibles is that one has the New Testament and the other doesn't. Or maybe your mom just thinks this way: "only good people can go to heaven, as long as that good person has faith." Not much of a difference.

Could you explain it a bit further. I'm not entirely sure, because in the version of the bible my mom taught me, it says that like the override key is being a good person. I don't know though.

@Marvele Nope, the main key for heaven is faith in God. Everything else is like after-effects. A person who believes in God, also believes in his rules, so he'd (or she'd) want to actually listen to them, I think. There's no reason not to... don't kill people; be nice to others; forgive 'em... it's all the basic stuff.

Sorry, slip up there. But wouldn't that mean anyone who doesn't go to heaven just go to purgatory? Also, the bible contradicts itself there since if a person is utterly benevolent and doesn't believe in God, they would both have to go to heaven but not be allowed to.

Well, I can't agree with you.

Basically, because you are attacking the religious people as they do to you, please, don't be a hypocrite. I think that at least some of us could already have enough head to understand others position and don't mind about it, simply, being a bit more open minded. If in your point of view they go to Hell, let them go. If you think in someone that doesn't exist, good for you then.

I am a Christian (Anglican) and I'm a bit taken back at this. But I believe that being non-religious is fine as long as you don't think being religious is a bad thing. If people start to pick on you because if being non-religious then you can start to tell them your beliefs (about it not being clear and what-not) because you are allowed free thought. All religions were created to explain things and help us connect and just make things more understandable (I have to say that I See More▼

And I just noticed that you talked about how religions are against gays. Quite frankly, I am not, and there are many Christians who aren't either. If you believe that all of Christians are against gays and hate people who don't agree with them, then I'll just say that all atheists are stupid pessimists.

It sounds like you haven't been around real Christians who believe God created everyone equal and everyone should be loved despite of sins of mistakes they might make. No one has seen God or heaven or hell or even Lucifer (Satan) but you can hear him and feel his presence at times. God is not against gays but he is against the sin they are committing but it can always be forgiven.

Every word you said there is true, but I do respect religious people, except the ones who hate Gays, I think that is ridiculous.
