**ETA** i really don't understand the hypocrisy...anyone care to explain? (religion topic)
no disrespect to any particular religion (or lack hereof)...but why is it when a person says they are 3rd, 4th, etc., generation witch/other belief (outside of christianity) everyone applauds... but christians who are christians bc that is what they were raised get called mindless robots or sheeple or some other negative phrasing that suggests they have been brainwashed? Is it not possible that I am able to think for myself and come to the conclusion that being a christian is what I want? not that it's what someone programmed me to be, so I have no choice...
eta: this is something I have noticed on cm. not in real life.
ETA 2: I suppose the point most of you are missing is that everyone believes in SOMETHING, and we all pass that on to our children in some way, shape or form. many non-Christians say they teach their kids to be open minded, and to choose for themselves, but they are only open minded to the things they believe...everything else is mythical, and imaginary. For some who claim to be so "intelligent and enlightened" they are only mimicking what they have read or heard someone else say rather than basing their beliefs off of personal experiences.
