In most religions, gods are supposed to be the source of all morality. For most believers, their religion represents an institution for promoting perfect morality. In reality, though, religions are responsible for widespread immorality and gods have characteristics or histories which make them worse than the most vile human serial killer. How can people not tolerate such behavior on the part of a person, but when with a god it all becomes prefectly fine — even an example to follow?
That's a good question!! When I think of all the people, good people, that have died in the name of religion it's sickening!!! How can you integrate and kill in the name of a god?? The amount of people that were executed in name of Christianity alone is stifling!! How is this justified?? Christianity is not the only religion to do this - but it is the most predominant one. This is why I well stay spiritual, and not subscribe to any one religion. I just can't justify it all, and that is part of what drove me away.

Anon, just because it doesn't involve me personally, does not mean I don't find it interesting and don't LIKE to learn about it. You have something against education, do you? Why the need to respond to my post anyway? No will power to ignore me or did I strike a nerve with you and you had to insult me in order to make yourself feel better?
Perhaps you like to be ignorant and live inside your little box where only you and your beliefs exist, but I on the other hand like to learn why people believe in and act the way they do.
