Have you ever been ashamed of your religion?

I often am. Not so much by the religion, but by other followers of my religion.

Anyone else? and why?

  • I've never been ashamed of the foundation of my faith, but I am often ashamed of people who practice it and sometimes of decisions made be leaders. I always say (and have heard many other say) that the gospel is perfect but man is flawed.

  • Not by my religion-no
    But sometimes people twist religion into something it is not and that bothers me-
    So religion-no; People-yes
    But then again- it still goes back to people being people- there are women that make me ashamed to be a woman; human that makes me ashamed to be human and on and on....

  • no..i'm ashamed of how people act, attaching their religious convictions to their actions as a means of support for stupidity/intolerance/prejudices/etc....but its not the religion. its the people who act on their own volition.

  • ~*Never*~... I am only responsable for my own actions, others choose what character they show!!! Including those that have no religion!

  • I am Independent Baptist and very proud of that but like you I am sometimes ashamed of those claiming to share the same religion that often do not show it. The ones who act very obnoxious and in your face. All Christians are not like that!

  • Nope.
    Nor of the people.
    People are people, choosing to follow Jesus doesn't make them perfect.
    Some people just have a hard time accepting and understanding that fact.

  • I have never and will never be ashamed of what I believe in.
    I am walking this path, because it is what is meant for me.
    I am annoyed with the people who make it out to be something it isn't.
