Do you consider yourself religious...

and if so is there ANY room for humor in your life???

I have seen SO many response to religious question and it seems as if the responders have zero sense of humor.  Such GREAT offense is taken to so many of the questions instead of finding the humor in them, the joy in a healthy debate, or at least being kind.

human laughter is one of the most beautiful sounds (though you cant hear that on line of course)

  • I am religious and I have a sense of humor. I think it's difficult for people when they feel as if others are making light of very deep faith and sort of defiling it with unworthy jokes and comments. Just a thought...

  • One of the creation stories in my religion starts with "When She (the Goddess) laughed everything was born".

    I think laughter is the best thing when things get serious. I also strongly believe that you need to question your beliefs constantly to make sure you still believe them.

    People take themselves too seriously and it's pretty annoying.

  • I'm a Christian. I do attend a church of a certain faith, but what's most important is my relationship with God. And, I have a great sense of humor, love nothing more than to laugh and have fun. However, no one likes to have their faith or beliefs trashed, or made fun of, and I'm sure that includes you, anon OP. If God didn't intend for us to enjoy ourselves and laugh, He would not have given us the ability to laugh, or senses of humor. He doesn't however, expect us to be mean with that sense of humor, make fun of other's beliefs, or anything else about them that is different from our own beliefs.

  • I don't really consider myself 'religious', but I am spiritual and philosophical. I think humor is very important, and there are several regular posters on here who crack me up all the time. Without typing a whole bunch, I'll just share a question I posted a while back related to the role humor plays (if any) in religions.

    What role if any does humor play in your religion, philosophy, or spiritual beliefs?

  • What a great question! Thanks.
    I consider myself religious is a way, but I don't belong to a certain believe.
    As far as for the humor: I always figured god had a great sense of humor. I mean, look at us!

  • My faith is the most important part of my life, but I would say I'm spiritual rather than religious, as I reject a lot of orthodoxy/dogma. I feel like I'm pretty sensible, though, when it comes to being able to take a joke and all...

  • Spiritual yes. Religious, probably not. But there is always room for humor.
